I’m so excited to introduce Community Signal, a new weekly podcast for online community professionals.
This is going to be a very high quality, well-produced community-focused podcast. This isn’t a social media podcast or a marketing podcast – it’s a community podcast.
My first guest is Bill Johnston, one of my favorite thinkers in the community space. We talked about what happened when marketing automation became a community problem at Autodesk, why communities need to partner with networks and the community industry’s fractured leadership. I really enjoyed our conversation, and I hope you will, too.
Thank you to Emoderation (especially Tamara Littleton and Blaise Grimes-Viort) for sponsoring our first run of episodes. The show that I envisioned would not have been possible without their generous support.
That support allowed me to reunite with Karn Broad, who produced the award-winning SitePoint Podcast that I co-hosted, and is my producer on this show. We were also able to do a number of other things to give the show a nice polish that matches the hope I have for the show and the quality it will represent.
Thank you for reading.
