I've lost count of how many podcast networks have the initials "TPN". Lemme see....there's The Podcast Network, Tech Podcast Network, and now the Teen Podcast Network. Oh, that's only three - I guess I can handle that.
I was unaware of the Teen Podcast Network until today. It doesn't look all that crazy busy, but I certainly admire the sense of community that Matt, Mike, and Robbie have shown, Many of us are just takers and not givers so it's always gratifying to see someone giving back. Especially teens.
Michael F. founded the network on a small blogger site with a few podcasts, including his own (The Commoners View of the World) He continued to run off this blogger until two members from the site really helped him out. These two member were Lee R. and Robbie T. Robbie provided the hosting, the domain, and the drupal, beforehand Lee had created TPNP, the official Teen Podcasters Network Podcast. When the drupal was finally set up the new site was born, along with a domain, and Lee went to work on a new theme which he eventually finished in the middle of september. Along with Chris L. they began to grow the network into the social community it is today, with a few bumps in the road, but still eventually becoming great.
Great stuff, guys. I hope this particular TPN keeps on rockin'!
