Over the last year, one of the things we’ve been working really hard to do is diversify the guests that we bring to our listeners here on BlogcastFM. So we thought it would be interesting to start interviewing people who are doing social media work for some really big brands. Given that our very own David Crandall has become the Picasso of PowerPoint with his work on SlideShare, we thought a perfect place to start this process would be with Kit Seeborg, the community manager for SlideShare. She gave us some amazing insights not only into SlideShare, but the amount of untapped opportunity available to bloggers. (*We had some recording issues because I was screwing around with a new mic, so my voice sounds a bit funny).
Here are some of the highlights from our chat:

One of our goals for 2012 is to become a top 100 show in iTunes. We can get there with your help and it will enable us to improve the how and bring on even bigger guests. So if you can, we’d be really grateful if you write us a review in iTunes.
