TBH #001 – Kevin Rooney : Podcasting, Blogging, Discussion Forums and Baseball

I’m pleased to announce the release of my brand new podcast: The Business Hangout. In every episode I will speak with someone from the business life: beginners and experts.

My first guest is my good friend Kevin Rooney, who runs the baseball community Bases Loaded. We talked about a range of topics including podcasting, discussion forums and blogging.

You can view the episode on YouTube below. You can listen to the audio version at the bottom of this post. There is an option to download the audio file too.

Websites mentioned in this episode include:

  • Bases Loaded – Kevin’s baseball community. It was developed for Europeans who follow Major League Baseball. It includes a blog, podcast and a discussion forum.
  • @BasesLoadedEU – The Twitter account for Bases Loaded. You can also follow Kevin @CelticYankees

  • vBulletin – A premium forum script that was initially developed by the guys who created Xenforo.
  • Invision Power Board – Another popular premium forum script.
