On The WebEdit
Web? What's that?
Involvement with Buzz Out LoudEdit
When CES 2007 was happening, two brazilian podcasters flew there and meet up with Tom and Molly (see the photo). After they came back, they commented on the show about who these two people were and the podcast that they produce on C|Net. Then, googling for Buzz Out Loud, he found the show and subscribed to it after he listened for the first time, on alpha.cnet.com.
The very first email he sent (sorta "Well, acctually" email) to them was read on the air in the exact same date of his birthday, by the fabulous Veronica Belmont, which makes he love this amazing podcast even more. It was the Episode 484, at 27 min 34s.
