Buzzer Podcast: Voice of the SeaBus

Buzzer Podcast: Voice of the SeaBus

Listen to the voice of the SeaBus in our very first podcast!

(Some of you might be asking “What’s a podcast?” Well, a podcast is a lot like radio-on-demand. Podcasting Alley has a good definition of podcasting, and Wikipedia has info too. But for our purposes, it means the Buzzer can bring you radio-quality sound stories in files you can download — and this, believe it or not, is a really exciting thing.)

Anyway, our very first podcast is devoted to the voice behind the SeaBus. You know the voice: it’s the one that gives the SeaBus safety announcement at every sailing. I talk to Rik Kiviaho, the mystery man behind the announcement, about how he got roped into the job, and much more. (You can also check out the article on Rik in the Oct. 10 Buzzer for more!)

To listen to the podcast, press play on the player above, or download the mp3 here. You can also subscribe to our podcast via RSS, so this audio file will download straight into iTunes or your RSS reader, and you’ll get all the future Buzzer podcasts by refreshing your subscription.

And keep watching the blog – the remaining podcasts on the voice of the SkyTrain and on John Abou-Samra will be posted in the coming weeks.
