Presenting Goodstuff Broadcasting

On March 17th, I launched Good­stuff Broad­cast­ing togeth­er with my good friends Chris Enns and Adam Clark.

On April 8th we did a more offi­cial launch where we did live broad­cast­ing for eight hours, and it was one of the funnest things I’ve done in a long time. We final­ly got to see this thing that we’ve planned and worked on for months, in the wild. The best part? Peo­ple seemed to like it.

Good­stuff is by no means a huge net­work. How­ev­er, we saw from the begin­ning that we have a core of amaz­ing peo­ple who lis­ten to our shows. I can’t tell you how grate­ful I am about that. If you lis­ten to our shows, a heart­felt thank you to you.

So what are we doing? What are we try­ing to accom­plish? What makes us different?

Those are great ques­tions. We want to pro­duce enter­tain­ing and edu­ca­tion­al con­tent span­ning tech­nol­o­gy (of course), cul­ture, news, and more. As time goes by, we’d like to do shows that cov­er the dif­fer­ent nich­es of these top­ics bet­ter, but we’re doing a fan­tas­tic job for a one month old network.

In terms of what we want to accom­plish, all three of us want to do this full time. As you may have heard on the lat­est episode of The Intel­lec­tu­al Radio Pro­gram, I’m so burnt out with the web. I’d love to make a tran­si­tion into some­thing else.

What makes us dif­fer­ent? That’s actu­al­ly quite sim­ple: we’re a group of nice peo­ple work­ing hard to make great con­tent. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, that’s becom­ing a big dif­fer­en­tia­tor nowadays.

If you like what we’re doing, and would like to help us out, you can do that in cou­ple of ways:

  1. Fol­low us on Twit­ter. Twit­ter is what we use to noti­fy every­one of shows record­ing live, recent­ly pub­lished episodes, and shows we’ve added to our network.
  2. Sign up for our newslet­ter. Chris does some real­ly fun things with the newslet­ter. He updates you on the lat­est episodes, Good­stuff news, and more. In fact, I owe him some behind-the-scenes con­tent about Fullscreen.
  3. Share your favorite episodes. If you real­ly enjoyed an episode of a show, or like the whole show in gen­er­al, share it with peo­ple. Word of mouth rec­om­men­da­tions are the best and are usu­al­ly trust­ed a lot more.
  4. Rate and Review in iTunes. This we real­ly appre­ci­ate. We don’t real­ly under­stand the black mag­ic that is the iTunes pod­cast direc­to­ry, but we hear that rat­ings and reviews don’t hurt. Plus, hosts love to see reviews of their shows. The review does­n’t have to be pos­i­tive, but it should be use­ful and con­struc­tive. You can find the iTunes page for our dif­fer­ent shows here.
  5. Check out our spon­sors. We real­ly appre­ci­ate our spon­sors. They give us mon­ey to do some­thing we all love doing. But, they also give us mon­ey in the hope to reach you. That’s the real­i­ty of adver­tis­ing. How­ev­er, because we care about both sides, we only adver­tise things we like and use. This way, instead of it being adver­tis­ing, it’s more of a friend-to-friend recommendation.
  6. Bonus: Buy a T‑shirt. You’ve got about five hours left to get a Good­stuff t‑shirt. A huge shoutout to Steve for mak­ing us such a rock­ing logo.

In clos­ing, thank you so much for sup­port­ing my projects. I can’t tell you how excit­ed I am, to final­ly be doing this with peo­ple I love to work with. It’s the first time I’m part of a found­ing team, and actu­al­ly enjoy it. In a short time, we’ve built a com­pa­ny and net­work that I feel for­tu­nate and proud to be part of.
