24-Hour Podcast Marathon To Raise Money For One Laptop Per Child

Todd CochraneTodd Cochrane, the host of the Geek News Central Podcast, is hosting a live, interactive event that will last 24 hours.

During the 24-hour Podcast Marathon, Todd will stream live from his Hawaii-based studio on Ustream.TV and will have interactive talk via TalkShoe.com.

The marathon gets underway at 11am EST on Friday. Guests are going to be talking about a wide variety of subjects, ranging from podcasting, new media, and technology, which you might expect on a “geek news” show, but the conversation is also expected to include non-techie family and life topics.

The event will be streamed on ustream.tv and will also feature a Talkshoe “talkcast” at the same time, “so anyone is free to jump in on the call,” says Cochrane.

And, “most importantly,” adds Cochrane, the Marathon is “raising money for One Laptop Per Child.”

Podcasting News‘ Publisher Elisabeth McLaury Lewin is scheduled to participate early in the Marathon, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm Eastern (8:30 Pacific) US time. Later in the Marathon, the schedule includes international podcasters from UK and Australia.

And how does the Marathon’s host prepare for 24 hours of live interviews?

Cochrane insists that he’s not worried, that it will be a pleasure, “just to chat about topics that come up. I am sure it will be a rough 24 hours, but it should be fun. I hope the whole community comes out to keep the conversation going.”
