Filling a Niche
Your podcast meets some specific needs of ministry and addresses technology related concerns in a practical way. Very professionally done!
I listen to Martin and Sallie on my daily lunchtime walks. Makes me want to get back to our church website and put it into use. Great job!!
A bridge to connecting ministry to technology
The purpose of this podcast is to further ministry through technology. This does exactly that. I have heard everything from how to use applications other than Powerpoint in the classroom to step by step explanations of podcasting, how to take advantage of music technology in church when you don't have an organist, how to record and broadcast videos live in a way similar to television, and how to make videos online accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing. This is a GREAT resource for combining mostly free technologies to practical applications in ministry. Very well produced, something new every week.
