Air Venture: Oshkosh is the place to be if you’re into aviation. There’s something for everyone from home builts to military to warbirds to commercial to seaplanes to antiques to balloons and everything else imaginable. If you love aviation, you have to get to Oshkosh.
For the past four years a group of aviation podcasters have been gathering to produce the “Podapalooza” session. Imagine a room full of people and a table at one end packed with many of the people behind the voices in your head. All hanging out, talking about flying, aviation topics and social media. Pure podcasting fun :)
Since we started Plane Crazy Down Under, we’ve tried twice but never been able to make it to Oshkosh. Back in 2009, Stephen Force of the Airspeed podcast took a quick “Hello Oshkosh” piece we produced and had it played at the Podapalooza and on the EAA radio show during the event.
This year we couldn’t make it again (DOH!) so we put another promo together. It’s longer but encapsulates what we’ve been up to for the past year. They played part of it at the Podapalooza so we’re adding the original piece to our feed so you can hear how we tried to get there but couldn’t quite make it.
Maybe 2011 will be “third time’s the charm” and we’ll get there at last? :)
I hope to God you make Oshkosh in 2011. You guys put together the most entertaining, informative, interesting and inspirational aviation podcast out there. Keep up the excellent work, you are number one on my must listen list!
Hi Ed. Thanks for your very kind comments. We work extremely hard to make things sound as good as we can, and it’s always quite humbling to know that people appreciate it.
As for getting to OSH11, we’ll do our best, but it’s a very long & expensive commute from here, so we’ll have to see how things look next year.
Can you believe I was in the US this time last year and didn’t go to Oshkosh?? What was I thinking?!?
