We made “New and Notable” in iTunes!

What a thrill — the Conversations in Public Relations video podcast was just featured as “new and notable” in the iTunes podcast directory for Business and Management video podcasts.  In the little world of podcasting, this kind of recognition is huge.  It puts us on the front page (we are the first video) and it can boost the audience tremendously.  I know Katie Donohue’s eye-catching logo helped us snag that premium spot on the page!

I am so grateful to iTunes for this support, and to everyone who has supported this project in its early stages, especially the people who have taken the plunge and allowed us to interview them!  Thank you.
