If it is something I am absolutely convinced I'm right about though, I will bring it up again. And again.
Much less often do they give advice to me, so when Ronda suggested for the fourth or fifth time that I should do a video blog or a podcast, instead of dismissing her idea with "I did a couple of youtube videos on our last trip to North Dakota and it took too much time that I don't have", we actually discussed it.
Her thought was it would bring more attention to 7 Generation Games.
My thought on podcasts was:
- Most I have heard are so bad that I would rather suck sweaty donkey balls than have to ever listen to them again.
- Those that don't suck seem to come in two categories
- Podcasts by comedians - and I'm not that funny.
- Podcasts on eclectic, interesting topics
What would I podcast about? Is podcast even a verb?
What I know I would NOT do is a 'business podcast that sucks' - but that is redundant, because as far as I can tell, all business podcasts suck. Seriously, you may have a couple of good ideas on marketing but after the 14th episode you are reduced to talking for an hour to Joe Scum who wrote the book on Search Engine Optimization and your audience of 3 people who somehow have their phone stuck on your podcast are looking around for some sweaty donkey balls to suck to take their minds off of it.
I am actually taking this suggestion seriously and will be taking steps to make it happen. For an explanation of those exact steps and how they relate to not punching my friend, Kim, you will have to wait until tomorrow (if tomorrow is defined as 'when I get around to it').
