Yes, there’s a new media conference going on and John & I are *not* there, although we’d love to be. Podcasters Across Borders (PAB) is a weekend-long conference for podcasters to get together, eat, drink, network and talk about podcasting. This is the second annual international meeting of podcast veterans and rookies alike, coming together in Kingston, Ontario – mostly thanks to Mark and Bob from the Canadian Podcast Buffet. John and I had a chance to meet Mark this past February at an impromptus Vancouver Podcast Meetup and last year we listened to several episodes of our favourite podcasts to get their take and feel on the whole event (such as Andrew’s trip to PAB last year the on Geek.Farm.Life podcast).
This year I got the Twitter that Tod Maffin [todbits.com][todbits.tv]was heading to Kingston and we’ve been watching the blog posts and Flickr pics roll in, checking in on everyone and the awesome time they are having. John woke up this morning and told me to go watch “Tod Maffin with cowbell.” Our podcast hero donned a cow bell for a wonderfully kooky performance with the band Uncle Seth, so I’ve scooped the video from his blog post (and YouTube) as well as the comparison, in case you have never heard of the hilarious “More Cowbell” SNL sketch.
