Welcome to KoPoint Season Two. The new KoPoint website is live, and new programs are broadcasting now. The new KoPoint website makes listening to our shows and subscribing to our podcast very simple. To emphasize simplicity and speed, the front end of KoPoint is hosted on and built around Tumblr. Our back end data is managed by Rackspace and served by a variety of CDNs (depending on your physical location).
I care about the relationship listeners have with @kopoint in their ears and minds, not on a screen. Subscribe + Listen > Click.

The website experience (eg, kopoint dot com) is important. The website serves as a handshake introduction, a distribution hub, and a community portal. More important, however, is that the website help guide you towards developing an off-screen experience.
At it’s heart, KoPoint is a content company produced by humans. Yes, our studio shows do pop, hiss, and crackle. KoPoint has always been a fun and messy company. It is my sincere hope that KoPoint becomes something you listen to, relax with, and experience in your mind’s eye. In the past year, KoPoint has produced over a hundred full-length episodes, traveled with the presidential campaign, covered Comic Con, and interviewed thought leaders like Steve Wozniak. We’ve served several hundred thousand downloads and millions of minutes listened. Our sponsors and underwriters include some of the tech world’s most sophisticated start-ups.
The new season of KoPoint content features a fantastic slate of shows focused on business, technology, and culture created by talented hosts and producers:
- AFK On Air Stacey Brook, Lindsay Johnson, Lauren Panepinto, Michele Reznik, Natalie Zutter
- American Conversation – Marc Lizoain and Dan Patterson
- Beer Diplomacy – Stuart Tracte
- The KoPoint Comic Book Show – Jeff Newelt, Jon Lazar, Dan Patterson
- Digital Flotsam – PW Fenton
- Managing the Gray – CC Chapman
- In Over Your Head – Julien Smith
- Win the Room – Kelly Hadous
Thank you very much for listening. I encourage and look forward to hearing from you, and I hope you enjoy our shows.
