Portland has always had a certain predilection for podcasts. We have had any number of folks experimenting with the format since the turn of the century. In fact, we have had some pretty successful and notable efforts come out of the community over the last two decades. Heck, we even had that Airstream that was retrofitted into a podcast studio and an event that brought a bevy of well-known podcasters to the stage.Read More
The plot thickens with A Kids Book About podcasts… or is it A Kids Podcast About?
As reported by the Portland Business Journal, Portland startup A Kids Book About is going to be more than about books. The company is now branching out to develop a podcast network, as well.Read More
Don't just read all of the stupid things I say about Portland startups, listen to them
No. I didn’t start another podcast. But for reasons beyond my comprehension, I get asked to talk about Portland and startups. A lot. And it just happened again. Twice. And since the topic of conversation is based on you and your startuppy awesomeness, I thought you might like to know. So, if you’ve got a few minutes, tune into these podcasts from Partially Derivative and Launch Yourself. Read More

Mugasha adds a slew of new sets
If you’re into electronica, you’re likely a heavy podcast consumer—a great way to get a ton of new tunes to fill your library. But there’s one major issue with that format: like the live sets, DJ podcasts are a single unbroken stream of music—often hours on end—with no way to determine which songs are which and who’s being sampled.
Enter Portland-based Mugasha—arguably the most successful service to come out of Portland Startup Weekend. Mugasha slices and dices DJ sets into consumable—and intelligible—chunks, making it easier on the listener and providing more promotional opportunities for the DJs.
