Hello there!

Welcome to another week with Pods and Blogs. There's plenty packed into this week and you can listen back to the podcast here.

If there is a page you are interested in or a character you want to follow up and find out more, this is where you will find all of the links.

am.gifFor openers this week, we take a look at how people discuss and share religion online. Robert Salaam writes The American Muslim blog and radio show and enjoys the fact that an online environment breeds discussion, education and shows the many facets of Islam.

jt.gifThe Jewish community online appears to be thriving via all manner of social networks. Rabbi Yitzchak Rosenbaum and Susanne Goldstone of the National Jewish Outreach program in the United States, describe why the Jewish lifestyle online is fun to share via Tweets and more.

mmm.gifNot forgetting our mobile friends. Mobile Ministry Magazine has been run for years by Antoine RJ Wright. He provides ways of spreading the good word and the conversation via all manner of mobile devices.

There are of course many other religions we did not cover in the show this week and each have their own great forms of expression online. If we did not represent your religion this time, we'll do our best next time we come to the topic. Do let us know if there is something extraordinary we should see.

ld.gifFrom religion to the arts next. Lloyd Davis, the man who brought about the Tuttle club in London has taken up the role of Social Artist at the Centre for Creative Collaboration. He explains more about the role and how it might work.


sg.gifNew York, London, Paris, Munich...who's revving their Tweetometer the hardest?
Steven Gray of CASA at University College London has been working on ways to show which places tweet the most and when. It makes for a mildly hypnotic visualisation - in a fun way. You can talk to Steven about his work via his Twitter account here.

That's all for this week. As usual, it's the things you do online that make each edition fun to
jkavatar.gifYou can email me at Podsandblogs at bbc dot co dot uk or come and say hello on Twitter where we are known as Podsandblogs. There is often a pre-show discussion there and everyone is welcome.

Until next week!
