Minter Dialogue with Charlie Birney

Charlie Birney is a fellow podcaster, who co-founded Podville Media and the Podcast Village where he consults and helps produce notable podcasts, such as The Lincoln Project or The 1600 Sessions. He is also author of the newly published, “The Tao of Podcasting,” in which he uses the wisdom of Tao to help navigate the world of podcasting. In this conversation, we discuss Taoism, Charlie’s career and creative outlets, the evolution of podcasting and some of the pearls in his book, which he wrote and illustrated. This episode is loaded with interesting tidbits and resources.
