As you know, PodCamp Toronto is a free event. The organizing committee volunteers their time, of course, but we couldn’t pull it off without the support of our sponsors. There are, after all, a number of costs associated with putting together a weekend long event. With that in mind, we wanted to take a moment to tell you a little bit about each of them and encourage you to check them out, give them a shout out and thank them. If it wasn’t for them, there would be no PodCamp Toronto.
