Killer Innovations Is Now A Syndicated Talk Radio Show

Creativity In A Box -- The Killer Questions Card Deck

When I started the podcast, I had no idea where that path would lead me. Over the 11 years, the show has gone through a number of transitions.  The latest being that it is now a weekly live talk radio show syndicated on the BizTalk Radio Network of AM and FM radio stations across the US.

The show is a 1 hour live show on Sundays at 5:00PM Eastern – 2:00PM Pacific and can be listenedlive on BizTalk Radio site or you can download the BizTalk apps for iOS and Android.

The weekly show will then be edited/produced and released as our normal weekly podcast through our normal podcasting networks (e.g. iTunes, Soundcloud, etc).

While you will still get the show as a podcast, those listening live will be able to participate by asking questions or offering your ideas and comments.

This post is for show #1 – what I’m referring to as the “prototype” show.

NOTE: I would love your comments/feedback/suggestions as we attempt to “innovate” live radio. Please add them to the comments below.

Enjoy.
