I was talking to our friend George Morgan this weekend and I was thrilled to hear that The Genealogy Guys Podcast will celebrate its 150th episode this coming week! Co-hosts George G. Morgan and Drew Smith published the first episode of the weekly podcast at www.genealogyguys.com on 4 September 2005. Since that time, the free podcast has become the longest continuously running, regular podcast in the world.Â
A typical podcast includes genealogy news, responses to listener e-mail, and discussions of interesting genealogy-related topics. Book reviews and interviews are often a part of the mix. The casualÂ style of the podcast makes you feel like youâ€™re in the room with George and Drew, andÂ The Guys are sometimes joined byÂ The Genealogy Cats: Tosca, Fletcher, and Rex the Wonder Cat, who like getÂ in a meow in every once in a while.
The Guys produce an episode each week and publish it to the Web. People can goÂ to the podcast website to listen to current and all past episodes. You can also subscribe to the podcast at sites such as itunes.com and other webcatcher sites on the Internet.
The landmark 150th episode will be available early next week and they tell me itÂ will include a couple of surprises to veteran listeners. Ancestry is one of the sponsors of the podcast and this episode will include an interview Drew did with The Generations Network CEO, Tim Sullivan. This podcast is going strong, and George and Drew plan to keep on going.
Congratulations to George and Drew on their 150th episode!Â We look forward to hearing many more episodes!
