From Canada, with Peter Noce, a media producer and technology trainer/tutor and Harry Posner, a writer, author and Dufferin County’s first Poet Laureate; sharing our interests and passions with you, on The Sill, which began with episode TSP000 on July 10, 2017
The original concept of our podcast was to explore areas relating to Art and Technology, evolving into a virtually ‘no limits’ conversation.
Neither of us are experts, nor profess to be. We are on the same level as the listener, offering up ideas and thoughts that come from our life experiences, inviting listeners to eavesdrop on what we hope is an enjoyable and interesting dialogue.
We discuss artificial intelligence, the power of poetry in the digital age, explore the worlds of tea and coffee, aging, death and dying, and interview a range of fascinating people. The whole point is to both educate and entertain, and to re-enliven the art of conversation.
The Still co-hosts, Peter Noce and Harry Posner, established their successful podcast in 2017:
“We knew we were on to something,” notes Noce, an AV media producer and computer technology trainer, tutor, and trouble-shooter. He describes how The Sill has occupied a unique space in modern podcasting and is enjoying a growing—and also very engaged listening audience. “It’s based on a simple premise—that the art of conversation can be both enjoyable and enlightening.”
“Our challenge with each podcast is to bring a unique perspective to the topic at hand,” Posner said. “Not being experts means that we’re on the same level as the listener, offering up ideas and thoughts that come from our life experiences, inviting listeners to eavesdrop on what we hope is an enjoyable and interesting dialogue.”
“When I was in my early teens, I began listening to the BBC. I still do,” said Noce. “And I was completely immersed in and impressed by the quality of their content and productions. The sound effects and musical enhancements sparked my fascination with audio in general.”
The reality of podcasting is a bit more complicated than talking into a microphone. Taking an initial idea to a finished product, entails a variety of considerations, from topics to technical requirements to content delivery.
