In day and age, nobody will ever listen to an hour-long podcast, right? Wrong. In October of last year, Gino and myself set out to co-produce and co-host a weekly show called Talkadelphia. It operated on the premise that between the two of us – we could find enough interesting Philadelphians to keep the conversation going for a year. Almost 11 months later, we were stunned to be recognized as Best New Podcast by the Philly Geek Awards this past Friday, August 19.
