Listen to the new Windows Insider Podcast program here
Along with rolling out new Windows 10 Insider builds for both PC and Mobile, Microsoft has also released a fresh new audio podcast.
Experimenting with an audio podcast
Dona Sarkar, Windows Insider chief, explained the transfer saying that many of Microsoft’s customers have been asking for a long time for the team to share more information about its future plans regarding the overall Windows Insider community. Therefore, Microsoft wants to take into account all consumption styles and that is exactly how the company came up with this podcast.
Notes on the inaugural episode
The 17 minute episode was actually published on March 28th of this year, and its notes describe how host Thomas “Tomcat” Trombley explores the ways that Insider for Good helps people who are tech enthusiasts to morph their passion for technology into their very own superpower.
Dona Sarkar, Head of the Windows Insider Program and “overall Renaissance woman”, is going to teach them how they can use technology with the goal of making humanity better. The notes on the episode also invite us to “hear from one of the 25 winners of the first Insiders for Good Fellowship about how he puts power into the hands of the people of Nigeria (solar power, that is)”.
Since the first episode was published on March 28th, it’s a bit surprising to see the team waited a while before they said anything about it. Desite that, it was a very inspiring to see Sarkar herself discuss that great work done by the Insiders community.
It’s not clear if Microsoft plans on publishing new episodes regularly, but it’s great that the company found a new way to engage with its growing Insider audience.
