Th!nkCast #1 - Good evening, Copenhagen!
Published: Sunday 11 October
Host: Stephen Spillane
First episode: Good evening, Copenhagen!
The fourth out of many (hopefully) podcasts which relate to the Think about climate change blogging contest.
Description: How was the Copenhagen kick-off event? What was the highest point of the event and how did the bloggers react to the speakers?
This podcast was recoded on the first night of the actual conference, after the speakers at the Bella Centre gave their presentations. I remember having a great dinner at the Biomio (I don't know why they chose an Italian name for the restaurant, I guess good good and Italian sound-like name really go well together) when Joe Litobarski gathered all the people interested in making a podcast.
