This year, I participated in National Podcast Post Month (NaPodPoMo). NaPodPoMo was created by veteran podcaster Jennifer Navarrete in 2007, in response to the popularity of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). NaNoWriMo challenges writers to produce a novel during the month of November, while NaPodPoMo challenges podcasters to produce 30 podcasts during the same month. I’ve taken part in NaPodPoMo a few times over the years. This time, I wanted to turn it into a team effort around Hyper Nonsense, the podcast I cohost with Jen. The hope was that fans and friends of the show would join us and/or contribute their own audio to the NaPodPoMo effort, and a couple of them did.
NaPodPoMo doesn’t have a lot of hard and fast rules (which is one of things I like about it). I’ve always approached it from the standpoint of, “If I participate in a podcast during November, it counts for NaPodPoMo.” Participation can mean: Primary production, guest spot, or secondary production such as audio editing. With these qualifiers in mind, I’ve decided to compile all of the podcasts I took part in during November, to see if I did in fact beat the 30-day challenge. I had a hand in the primary production of all of the following episodes unless noted otherwise.
