I currently contribute to:
For Immediate Release (FIR)
Each month I contribute a 4-8 minute segment to "For Immediate Release: The Hobson & Holtz Report" a weekly podcast from Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson about the intersection of public relations/communications / marketing and online technologies. My reports typically focus on the underlying technology and provide information about why communicators should care. I started listening to "FIR" in February 2005, about a month after Shel and Neville launched the show. In September 2005, starting with FIR #66, I became a regular weekly "correspondent" for FIR and have been contributing a report each episode ever since. (As of 2019, the podcast moved from weekly to monthly.)
The Dan York Report
Seeking to do more with audio and to experiment with SoundCloud, I launched "The Dan York Report" in 2013 where I regularly provide commentary on the technical, cultural and social changes happening all around us, particularly related to the Internet. I cover emerging technology, social media, security and other random topics. I also provide occasional personal updates, travel/trip reports and commentary on larger social, political or even religious issues that I find interesting. It's a complex mixture of topics... with a heavy focus on technology. You're welcome to join the ride!

FIR On Technology with Dan York
With the creation of the "FIR Podcast Network" in 2013, I decided to expand upon my regular weekly reports into the main FIR podcast and offer longer episodes where I do deeper dives into the tools and technologies that communicators need to care about, as explained in this post on the FIR site. Thus was born "FIR On Technology with Dan York" with the first episode going live in December 2013. The episodes will appear periodically with no particular set schedule. Suggestions for topics are welcome.
I previously produced other podcasts:
Blue Box: The VoIP Security Podcast
From October 2005 through October 2008 I produced and co-hosted "Blue Box: The VoIP Security Podcast" with Jonathan Zar, a colleague from the Voice over IP Security Alliance. We recorded over 100 shows and interviews, had on average over 1500 people downloading the show each week, and built a strong community around the show. Job and life changes caused us to put the show on a hiatus from which it never returned. The past shows and detailed show notes are all still available at: http://www.blueboxpodcast.com/
Emerging Tech Talk
From November 2008 through June 2011 I produced and hosted a video podcast, "Emerging Tech Talk", for Voxeo, my employer at the time. In the 64 episodes of the show, I talked about and demonstrated new and emerging technologies, with an emphasis on communication apps, services and standards, but with the occasional iPhone app, gadget or other random topic thrown in. While the corresponding blog posts and show notes that were at http://blogs.voxeo.com/ett/ seem to have disappeared after Voxeo was acquired in 2013 by Aspect, the video episodes can still be found on YouTube.
