100 PodCamp Topics for You to Cover

With PodCamp Boston 2 coming up Oct 26. – 28 in Boston, and with over 1200 people registered as of this very moment, PodCamp as a movement is going strong. PodCamp Cape Town (South Africa) just happened, and PodCamp Perth (Australia) is coming up simultaneous with Boston2. I figured as the cofounder of PodCamp, that I should write out some ideas for sessions one could cover, were one to be stuck wondering what to talk about. You could use these at upcoming PodCamps like PodCamp Arizona on November 3rd or you could just blog, podcast, or videoblog a topic as I’ve written them all out below. I just ask one thing: please link back to chrisbrogan.com with any post you write from this list. Thanks!

And so, without further delay, the list:
