The TSG Multimedia Podcast – you can play the most recent podcast content right from this page!
TSG Multimedia started podcasting in 2010 with a monthly audio podcast. This audio podcast covered a large range of topics and sometimes included special guests from the railroading industry for interviews or discussions. The format of this podcast was always wide open and it was never rehearsed in any way. The casual listener may not have realized this, because the conversations naturally took a fluid direction. Because it was edited for content, quality, and time, it was very easy to listen to. The audio podcast continues to be released every month, but with a new approach.
It was not long before the first video podcast was released, which featured some HO Scale and N Scale models. The video podcast was originally released via the Podomatic RSS feed but has since been moved exclusively to YouTube. Much like the audio podcast, the video podcast was not rehearsed, although the topics are determined ahead of time.
Starting in 2016, I combined the audio and video podcasts into one production that is geared toward the YouTube audience. The audio from this program is simultaneously uploaded to TSG Multimedia’s RSS feed through Podomatic as the monthly audio podcast, and both versions release at the same time on the first Saturday of every month. This transformation allowed TSG Multimedia to reach even more people, and created a popular “magazine” style program for the YouTube channel which featured a variety of train-related content with a much more interactive approach.
The TSG Podcast evolved again in 2018 to its current form. It is now utilized as a monthly update for viewers about what has happened during the month prior, as well as a preview of what to expect in the coming month. I have added some other content, such as Product Spotlights, current events, and interviews with authors, prototype railroaders, and model railroaders. Viewer feedback is always encouraged, and can be emailed to podcast (at) tsgmultimedia dot com.
In 2018, the TSG Live Webcast was introduced to the TSG Multimedia YouTube channel. These interactive programs occured on the third Sunday of every month, and most of them came from the historic Santa Clara Depot, featuring one or more guests from the South Bay Historical Railroad Society.
Live webcasts can happen any time, but especially when there’s important information about an event or upcoming program to share, so it’s always a great idea to not only be subscribed, but to also ring the bell icon on YouTube so you can be notified any time I go live.
There are hundreds of hours of free video content on the TSG Multimedia YouTube channel – from free programs to special events, to podcasts to product reviews and much more. Please consider visiting TSG Multimedia on YouTube and subscribing!
I also created a presence on Patreon in September of 2018 to offer viewers a chance to be part of the TSG Train Crew by supporting my efforts with a recurring monthly pledge. TSG Train Crew members enjoy exclusive content and branded merchandise that was designed just for them. It’s everyone’s opportunity to help me continue to bring more high quality content to the public!
