My fishbowl is expanding. Nora Young and Lee Lefever meet on Spark.
One of my favorite tech podcasts is a CBC show called Spark. In 2005 I attended the first Podcasters Across Borders, a yearly podcasting conference held in Kingston, Ontario, this is where I met Nora Young for the first time. We hit it off instantly as all Canadian podcasting geeks tend to do.
Last weekend I was in Austin, Texas at South by Southwest. I was at a party there where I ran into Lee Lefever from Common Craft. I met Lee earlier this year at Gnomedex, a much smaller, but very cool conference in Seattle, Washington. We hung out for a while chatting and catching up.
Are you following me?
Nora is a Canadian podcaster working for a Canadian broadcaster. Lee is an American how-to video producer. Imagine my delight when I was driving into work this morning listening to Spark when Nora introduced Lee for an interview.
Is my fishbowl expanding? It was so funny to hear, I actually laughed out loud. Lee is a super dude, a very very nice guy. Nora is incredibly nice and down to earth too. I was thrilled to hear them connect for the first time in my ear buds, in my car, in Nashville, Tennessee. I’m trying to figure out a way to work Kevin Bacon into this post.
