Sean McMinn


Sean is an ESL teacher at the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST). He has been podcasting since late 2005. His fiction podcast, Dismay (http://dismay-podcast.blogspot.com/ and http://dismay.blogmatrix.com), was a finalist for last year's The Podcast Peer Awards and also the Parsec Awards.

Sean has produced the English One podcast (http://smcminn.blogmatrix.com/) and his latest venture is a student group produced podcast magazine by HKUST students for their peers called Campus Beat (http://campusbeat.libsyn.com/).

He has recently been interviewed by the Canadian press about his podcasting work.

Sean and Nick Noakes ran a couple of workshops for students at HKUST. One was on subscribing and listening to podcasts (including how to get them synced onto a Windows Mobile device) and a follow-up on creating podcasts (using Audacity as it needs to be free software for our students) : http://podcastingworkshop.wikispaces.com
