The Weekly Download – November 18, 2016

edenspodek_weekly-download-nov-18 - Drawing of Bob GoyetcheYou caught me. This post was published a day late. I spent most of the week in Chicago – more about that another time. This week, there’s a special episode in memory of my friend, Bob Goyetche who passed away suddenly of a heart attack last week. His funeral is being held in Montréal today so it seemed only fitting to publish today.

One Night in Kingston

Bruce Murray created this dedication to Bob Goyetche 1968-2016, and the attendees of Podcasters Across Borders 2006 PAB.

Spark with Nora Young included this segment about Bob in this week’s episode. Nora was a member of the community Bob help build.

Ada’s Sisters – Episode 50: A tribute to Bob Goyetche

On Friday, November 11 we learned about the sudden passing of our friend and a true podcaster, Bob Goyetche. This episode of Ada’s Sisters is dedicated to a good man and his wonderful family, especially his wife Cathy and son Simon. Bob was a community builder and one of the co-founders of the Canadian podcasting community. He and Mark Blevis launched Podcasters Across Borders (PAB) along with their wives, Cathy and Andrea. They also co-hosted the Canadian Podcast Buffet podcast showcasing Canadian podcasters and introducing new podcasts to listeners. He volunteered countless hours sharing his knowledge with other podcasters helping them learn the technology. Some of his friends also credit him with bridging the language gap and bringing the francophone and anglophone podcasting and early adopter social media community together in Quebec.
Thanks to the community members who shared their thoughts with us for this special episode: C.C. Chapman, Ken Bole, Donna Papacosta, John Meadows, Whitney Hoffman, Dave Delaney, Daniele Rossi and more.
We apologize to anyone expecting our usual content, and promise, we’ll be back into the tech world with episode 51.
