The Boomerang

This is a long game.  That’s old news.  Online.  Podcasting.  Social Media.  It’s something I’ve been playing, participating in, and communicating with for over 10 years.

For the majority of that time, we’ve been fortunate enough to be creating content, sharing stories, and talking with people in those spaces (pro wrestling, technology, music, etc).  For many, we refer to them as “friends of the show”.  And we follow those people, and celebrate them as we’ve watched them excel into large businesses, or find them on my television on Monday night.

It seems that the work we did, the discussions we had in the name of something we just loved to do have been resonating back at me and my colleagues.  John Thorne of the wildly popular Absolute Intense Wrestling in Cleveland and the new “Card is Going to Change” Podcast was just back on one of our shows.  He joined us in 2009.  He reminded us that was his first ever Podcast appearance, and pronounced after this was going to be likely his last outside of his show appearance for a while.

Others have messaged me about an interview 5 years ago they relistened to and how much of what they discussed is absolutely happening in current projects, or how much fun another interviewee had in an early interview we did with him on the show.

What you do.  Whatever it is.  No matter how big it is.  It has influence.  Whether one of the 10 listeners latches on to your topic and how you talk about it, or a guest opens up to other opportunities thanks to an appearance on your production.  Every time you hit that publish button on the Podcast site (or whatever that function is for you) you send ripples through the internet if you’re doing your community and promotions right.  And you never know what can swing back to you years down the line.

Black Forge Coffee

Coffee Brings Together

I believe in Coffee.  It brings people together.

On Basic Sorganomics I had given the idea that your online community should resemble a coffee shop.  It’s how I like to meet new people all over the city.

Recently, we had another edition of our Sorgatron Media Coffee.  Originally this was my attempt to pull together all of the creative minds we collaborate with in our Podcast network and more.  As we moved to Work Hard Pittsburgh, I wanted to give an opportunity for others to come in and chat with that group and hopefully become inspired in their own projects.

We had a wonderful crew this month including our colleagues representing Panel Riot, Rizz Plays Games, AwesomeCast, and the Scarehouse Podcast hanging out along with some new faces looking to conquer video on Social Media for her company and another looking to resurrect his passion and teach online via podcasting or video. After a couple hours of chatter, it felt like our new faces had a little more confidence, and maybe a little bit of direction, to proceed with their projects and initiatives.  We discussed everything from Facebook Video to Podcasting to experimenting with 360 video.

This is the awesome melting pot we get to experience. Something that creates new opportunity for everyone involved.

The next Sorgatron Media Coffee is June 25!  RSVP here, or follow our Meetup Group for the latest geeky events!

Podcast Unity

Find Your Group

Podcast UnityYou have been working at your craft for a while.  Even when you thought you were the only one. You wondered if there was a next step or wonder where the community went.

That is where I found myself a few years ago.  It had seemed that Podcasting had been fading away.  There weren’t many others talking about it, or teaching it at our yearly Podcamp Pittsburgh.

Then they arrived. The others. The other creatives doing their own version of what I was trying to accomplish.

Then some interesting ideas came up about joining forces.  This Podcast Unity Either way, it’s great to gather and compare notes with groups like Pittsburgh Podcast Network, Rivers Edge, and Epicast in my day to day.

Whatever your creative endeavor, please be patient. And keep an eye out for your group.
