Oct 29th, 2006 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Podcasting Networks

The PodTech Network has announced a new podcast, CalacanisCast, hosted and produced by Jason Calacanis, CEO of Weblogs, Inc. The weekly show will focus on Jason’s insights in new media and technology trends and those of his special guests.
“I’m thrilled to have PodTech and GoDaddy.com as partners,” said Calacanis. “We’re going to have a fun time with the show, and help some kids in need at the same time. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

According to PodTech, the media philanthropy model that the CalacanisCast show represents is “a first example of a sustainable, high-quality media property that generates not only awareness, but monetary support, for philanthropic causes.” Sponsorship revenue for CalacanisCast will underwrite the tuition of disadvantaged youth to attend Bay Ridge Prep, and represents the formation of the Bay Ridge Prep Opportunity Scholarship Fund.

“This fund is a wonderful gift to the school and to the students selected to receive a unique, four-year private school education that emphasizes a respect for education, teamwork, and individual success,” said Charles Fasano, Ph.D., Executive Director of Bay Ridge Prep.

“We are ecstatic to have Jason as part of the show line-up on PodTech. He is an innovator and pioneer in new media, and we are excited to pioneer a philanthropic podcast sponsorship model with him,” said John Furrier, CEO and Founder of PodTech.
