Podcast: Conversation with Brittney Gilbert of

Brittney Gilbert of Nashvilleistalking.comIn the first episode of the Center for Citizen Media’s podcast, Lisa Williams of hyperlocal news site talks with Brittney Gilbert, the blogger behind is produced by Nashville’s ABC affiliate, WKRN/News 2 and has become the nodal point for Nashville’s local blogosphere:

That’s the whole point of Nashvillistalking — the title of the site is what it’s about. My job is to keep an eye on all of the locally produced blogs and be a human aggregator for what everybody is talking about. We just had a recent death-row execution, and there was a lot of talk about that, both pro and con; I try to do roundups where if you want a good sampling of where poeple are on one issue, you can come to Nashvilleistalking and find something from everybody who’s written about it…I notice that some people even start blogs after having read Nashvilleistalking; they notice that we have a really vibrant online community and they want to participate. Nashvilleistalking is not only a reflection of what bloggers are saying but has also inspired some people to start their own blog.
