MonsterPod to Launch Walden Media Podcast

August 14th, 2006 by Paul Martin

In a world where most people get their news and information online and at their own schedule, Come Alive International, Inc., home to the Creation Festivals, Morocco’s Friendship Fest, Creation Concerts and Come Alive Cruises, announces the launch of a new endeavor that will offer the next generation of entertainment and information to the Christian community. MonsterPod.org aims to provide access to a variety of positive, cutting edge, encouraging, thought provoking, entertaining and faith-focused topics from Music, News, Entertainment, Sports, Health, Technology, and more, through the widely growing technology of podcasting.

“Although MonsterPod is a different medium of reaching people than hosting a concert or event, we feel it ties in nicely with the mission and vision of Come Alive International,” says Harry Thomas, MonsterPod co-founder. “Our goal for the site is to provide a community where everyone can find the information or entertainment they are looking for, in a clean, family-friendly environment.”

With a vision to offer a wide array of content for both the experienced and novice podcaster, MonsterPod has teamed with companies such as EMI Christian Music Group, Tooth And Nail Records and HearItFirst.com to be the exclusive provider of Christian music podcasts, including music videos, “behind the scenes” and “life on the road” documentaries, live performances and much more.

Other partners, contributing semi-exclusive content include Walden Media, BEC Recordings, Provident Label Group, Gotee Records, Word Label Group, Integrity Music, Floodgate Records, American Policy Roundtable Compassion International, Crown Financial Ministries, Faith & Action, Our Daily Bread, Moody Bible Institute and many others.

MonsterPod also presents daily and/or weekly content from the White House Press Office, CNN, C-Span, Reuters, AP, Forbes Magazine, Wall Street Journal, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), PBS, NOVA, Sports Spectrum, FOX Sports, Major League Baseball and Harvard University to name a few.

In addition, MonsterPod will be providing exclusive online coverage of many of the major summer music festivals, and other events throughout the year.

“We are very excited about the partnerships we have made through Monsterpod,” explains Bill Darpino, co-founder and vice president of the site. “These companies have caught our vision and are jumping on board. Throughout the summer and fall, we will be adding and producing exclusive MP content, featured concert tour footage, creative independent podcasts, wild and creative exclusives found only on MP, and simply the best quality podcasts all in one site”
