Philanthropy Radio on NPR Member Station

National Public Radio member station WXEL has a show called Fundraising Success. Since they launched a couple of months ago, they have featured Peter Panepento of the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s Give & Take blog talking about various philanthropy and nonprofit blogs. This week, Peter brought me on the show to talk about Tactical Philanthropy. You can find podcasts of archived episodes on WXEL’s podcast website. You can hear my interview by clicking the play button next to the July 15, 2007 episode. My segment begins at the 47:16 mark and runs about 10 minutes.

Peter profiled this blog back in May and in various other episodes has talked about:

Most bloggers use a combination of Google Alerts, Technorati and some sort of blog stat program (I use MyBlogLog) to keep on top of when their blog is mentioned online. I don’t know of any program that can track audio mentions. Since no one has blogged about Fundraising Success that I know of, I assume the bloggers being talked about are unaware of the show.

Does anyone know of any other audio or video programming that has mentioned philanthropy blogs? If so, let me know. I guess it still takes good old fashion word of mouth to stay on top of these mediums. Or maybe Beth Kanter will save the day and point us all to a nifty new gadget that makes things easier (Beth Kanter: The Batman of nonprofit technology! “Where does she get all those wonderful toys?").
