Boston Behind the Scenes is a critically-acclaimed podcast that looks at the people and places that make Boston the unique city that it is. Through interviews with prominent (and not-so-prominent) Bostonians, the show brings you inside the lives of the people who make this city tick.
Adam Weiss is a successful educational podcaster and podcast consultant. As an expert interviewer and communicator, he aims to show that podcasting is more about story, presentation, and technique than fancy gear or tech toys. He is the creator, producer, and host of two podcasts: Boston Behind the Scenes and the award-winning Current Science & Technology Podcast for Museum of Science in Boston (regularly ranked in the top 1% of all science podcasts on iTunes). Adam was one of the organizers of the first PodCamp podcasting “unconference,” and is now a contributer to the O’Reilly Digital Media website.
