John Furrier didn’t listen to various speculation to snap up ex-Rocketboom’s Amanda Congdon for PodTech’s video content, he found something better. I just chatted with Geek Entertainment TV co-founder Irina Slutsky–a friend and former co-worker of mine–and she said that she and co-founder Eddie Codel start work tomorrow for PodTech. Reporting to new boss Robert Scoble at 9AM sharp no less! That was fast.
GETV will be PodTech’s first branded video content, and likely the first of many content deals for Furrier. The deal has been in the works for several weeks and was sealed in the past few days. The pair will produce around a clip a week of the same lovable video content and Irina says they’re going to keep doing what they’ve always done–just with some new funds to do it! GETV’s brand was just too irresistable in this hearty tech climate. Congrats Irina and Eddie. Check out their photo and what others are saying here.
