Back in October of last year I started a podcast. I know, I know. There are a MILLION podcasts out and what is going to make yours different, right?
Nothing. It’s still just a human talking. Silent movies didn’t stop, they evolved into the blockbusters you see today. Radio pretty much went belly up but the desire for people to just LISTEN is still there.
We need to disconnect from the screen. It does not mean we need to completely abandon all media. Podcasting for me fits that bill perfectly. I can record when I want, produce the piece within a day or so, and get it out to distribution on iTunes, Spotify, Google, Soundcloud, etc.
Lucky for me I have all the audio, did some soundproofing in my office to record cleaner with less bounce and echo, and off to the races. Almost to double-digit episodes, a 2 week flu bout crushed my February that had started off pretty strong. That’s life. I’m not beholden to a schedule this isn’t ESPN.
On the other hand when I don’t post, people are asking me what is going on and when will the next one be out. That’s pretty cool. It makes me excited to record the next one.
This site at i am Lichtman is in the middle of a morph as you can see. I’m looking at it like the Quarterback of a football team and this is where I throw my shots out to the various projects I’m working on. It’s 90% UNHINGED podcast and 10% World Go Boom right now. I’ve also been dabbling with a heavy metal site / podcast / social but honestly I only have so much time and each item does require a fair bit of focus.
If any of my metalhead friends want to join forces with me on that project hit me up, I’d love to have other people to work on it with opposed to it being a solo mission.
As far as this space I’ll be posting more of the ‘regular’ content. In some ways replacing FleeceHEAD my old blog which is pretty much dormant now but since it receives ok traffic still I’m leaving it on to hopefully push people to the podcast, websites, social media, etc. but I have zero focus or plans for that site beyond keeping my email there since too many people know it already.
