Filmed by CLNS Media, On-Demand Audio and Video Production of 12 Episodes for the exploding New England Cannabis-Business Community and those impacted by New England Cannabis Legislation
BOSTON – Hometown Podcasts, LLC, a Boston-based local podcast publishing company, is formally announcing a partnership with iconic Boston media personality Bob Lobel to host an entertaining and educational on-demand audio and video podcast centered on the New England cannabis industry for businesses and consumers impacted by new state cannabis laws.
The show will record its debut episode on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 and will be drop to the public via iTunes (Apple Podcasts) and all major podcast directories on Thursday, September 13. Video highlights will be available on Bob Lobel’s New England POTcast YouTube Channel one week following.
The debut episode is solely supported by Wisp, a Massachusetts-based technology start-up company that is simplifying and improving the experience for consumers interested in vaporizing natural herbs. The company has developed the world’s first single-use pod, herbal vaporizer system, delivering unprecedented quality, convenience and consistency. The complete system includes the ground-breaking vaporizer device, Wisp; single-use, precisely- measured pods containing pre-ground, lab tested botanical herbs called Wisp Pods; and a proprietary pod-filling process. The company was founded on care and commitment to patients and consumers and is guided by a philosophy of social and environmental responsibility.
The Wisp pods will be displayed on-set during the debut episode, Bob Lobel will read separate endorsement for Wisp and there will be a product demonstration during a mid-podcast interview.
The audio and video podcast of Bob Lobel’s New England POTcast will feature Bob in a role similar to that held by Anderson Cooper on his politically based program on CNN. Bob will provide a forum for a variety of opinions from a variety of the region’s legislators, entertainers, doctors, lawyers, industry executives and those that have similar influence in the eight states in which recreational marijuana has been legalized.
Bob, who was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in 2004 and is restricted to the use of crutches, is a medical marijuana card holder in the state of Massachusetts.
“Getting past the stigma of the word marijuana has been part of the learning process”, Bob said in 2013 shortly before attaining his medical card. “It’s more than a reasonable alternative (to opioids) once you get past the stigma that you’re under a railroad bridge smoking pot.”
Bob was a public proponent of Question 4 on the MA 2016 state ballot supporting the legalization of recreational marijuana. Lobel has always advocated, “so long as the proper regulations are in place.”
Bob Lobel achieved legendary status in Boston, having served as the primary sports anchor for WBZ-TV for nearly three decades, and for his deft handling of a variety of play-by-play roles for The Boston Marathon, the Celtics, the Patriots and Boston College Football.
The podcast has been created and developed by Hometown Podcasts, LLC, an independent podcast publishing company based in Boston, led by long time sports radio executive and entrepreneur Bob Snyder. The company has published 45 episodes to date of Bob Ryan’s Boston Podcast featuring the mayoral-like Boston sports historian and media personality (http://bobryanbostonpodcast.libsyn.com), as well as two podcasts in Washington, one featuring former Boston College Basketball Coach, NCAA Champion and Basketball Hall of Famer Gary Williams (http://basketballcoachesdcpodcast.libsyn.com).
