While most expos are heavy on sales and marketing, the Pixel Corps and Leo Laporte have teamed up to bring their own touch of education and entertainment to the mix as they run the new Podcast Studio, booth number 4546, during the annual Macworld Conference & Expo, Jan. 14-18, 2008 in San Francisco.
Throughout the week of Macworld, the Podcast Studio is offering over 15 free instructional sessions of training on a wide range of topics including how to design, host and create podcasts; working with greenscreens; and proper recording techniques. The Podcast Studio will also offer over 10 live broadcasts of industry acclaimed podcasts such as â€œMacBreak,â€? â€œThis Week in Technology (TWiT),â€? â€œGirls Gone Geek,â€? and â€œThis Week in Media.â€?

â€œThese are very exciting times for online video,â€? says Alex Lindsay, Pixel Corps founder. â€œItâ€™s like opening up shop at the start of radio, television or the Internet. Weâ€™re offering a magnitude of topics for both audio and video podcasting; we want people to see how easy it is to become part of the revolution.â€?
â€œThe Podcast Studio is bringing a new dimension to the Macworld Expo,â€? explains TWiT founder, Leo Laporte. â€œItâ€™s thrilling that IDG and the Macworld Expo gave us the opportunity to provide this training for free on the Expo floor. Getting everyone involved in this process is very important.â€?
