TAMPA, FLORIDA — Bruce Wawrzyniak has been chosen to spearhead a new podcast, “TASCAM Talkback,” a show designed to speak to both podcasters and streamers. Wawrzyniak is the host of “Now Hear This Entertainment,” a podcast that features interviews with guests who are having success in the entertainment industry (primarily music). “Now Hear This Entertainment” has aired every week for three-and-a-half years and boasts listeners from 128 countries around the world. TASCAM, well known for producing the most comprehensive line of audio recorders, mixers, and related equipment in the professional audio industry, has joined forces with Wawrzyniak to launch a podcast uniquely tailored for the podcasting and streaming community.
“I’m honored and excited to be heading up ‘TASCAM Talkback,’” Wawrzyniak said. “The opportunity to continue my podcasting endeavors and do so with a major, international company who is a leader in their industry is a welcome opportunity. This is a great fit and I look forward to working with TASCAM to deliver informative and engaging content to our audience.”
“Bruce’s connection to the music world makes him a natural addition to the TASCAM family, but it’s his experience as a podcaster that makes him the perfect host for this show,” remarked Eric Larsen, Director of Marketing for TASCAM. “This project is intended to be both educational and conversational, and this requires a host who has really been-there-done-that. Bruce is that guy.”
The new podcast will come out every other week and content will range from How To, to news, tips, tricks, and hardware and software, to conversations with content producers and equipment manufacturers. The aim is to help podcasters enhance the art, craft, and content of their shows.
Wawrzyniak is slated to be a speaker at Podfest in Orlando next February, when close to one thousand beginner, intermediate, and advanced podcasters – hobbyists and professionals alike – are expected to gather for the three-day event. His “Now Hear This Entertainment” podcast was nominated for two awards last year and is currently a nominee for another.
