T3! No not another Terminator movie, The Two Week Turnaround Tour! Is coming to a city near you. Joshua J. Mills and Jamie Blankenship are getting ready to embark on a great adventure that you can be a part of, and they are going to need all the help they can get.

If you like making films and you got some time to spare check out where their tour will be making some stops.

They are going to 14 cities so you are bound to be near one of them. We recorded this show a few weeks ago when they thought they were going to kick off their tour in Wilmington NC… Things had to change so they are starting in Greensboro, NC. If you are anywhere near there sign up now.

Midwest Media Now can’t wait till they make it to Chicago we plan on being part of the crew and we’ll make a couple podcast about the event along the way.

Listen to the podcast right here!

Or Subscribe to Midwest Media Now! On iTunes

On this show we talk about making a podcast.  You do know a podcast can be anything.  It can be audio, video, stills with music or narration.  Seriously it can be anything.  We run through some of the basics.  Work flow, tools for recording and editing, making RSS feeds and submitting your show to iTunes.

If I can figure it out you can too.  If you have any questions about what we talked about or want us to dive into things a little deeper any subject just let us know.  If we don’t know how to do it we will find someone who does.

Who’s who.

In this show we talk with Michael Palombo from Fans of Film it’s a community site for filmmakers.  Michael believes in the future of digital downloads for movies and other visual content.  We found him on twitter or should I say he found us.  Either way he’s a great find. Look for him to be on many more shows as his brainstorm grows.  We forgot to include how to find him in the actual show but as always you can find him here in the show notes.

Please make contact with him and join his group.  These are the kind of thing that will help Content Creators anywhere really make an impact in future of entertainment.
