Video of “Using Media Effectively” panel I appeared on at NEPA BlogCon 2012

During September of 2012, I appeared on the “Using Media Effectively” panel which had taken place at NEPA BlogCon 2012 – a first of its kind conference in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region. I primarily spoke about the NEPA Freethought Society Podcast which I host providing insight into the behind-the-scenes action, promotion, and much more. Also included in this panel, moderated by Karla Porter, are Jamie Karpovich (vegan cook and blogger of ‘Save the Kales’) and Brent Pennington (professional photographer). Enjoy!
