Do Computer Geeks Dream of Internet Stardom?

One of my dreams is to run my only new media outlet (i.e. Nerdist, Rooter Teeth, or Geek & Sundry) creating web series and podcasts.  I had some ideas about shows I could put on.  Here is a list:

Drone Racing Circuit – Travel to different drone races and broadcast them like they do with auto racing.

E-Sports League – Where teams will complete face to face every week in a round robin regular season and then a playoff to the championships.  Do this for the popular games like Call of Duty, Overwatch or League of Legends, each having there own league.

The Con Patrol – Go to different conventions like SDCC, E3, or WorldCon and talk to the celebrities and show the guest and attractions.

Primo Destructo – Lastly I thought it would be fun to have a robot like in Battlebots that would attack different objects and see what happens when they get destroyed.

Thinking About Podcasting Again

Back in 2006-ish I was introduced to podcasting by a friend at the time.  Being a fan of sci-fi I got into Escape Pod and Galacticast.  Would download them and then transfer them to PDA.  Over time I found out about Podiobooks and others that are non-scifi.  It inspired me to make my own.  So I made started making my own.

I started with The Radical Geek Video Podcast.  I thought that video would show the visual aspects of the geek community.  (Videos are in past posts)  Then there was Literary Wasteland.  Did 5 episodes of it were I would review self published speculative fiction.  I stopped that one because I am terrible with monologues because there is no feedback.

If I am going to make another podcast I would like to have a partner because I like feedback.  I don’t know what it will be about, but that is part of the fun.  Maybe do a Hogan’s Heroes introcast.

Things I need to do to my podcast.

There is to things I need to do on my podcast. Get myself on iTunes and get my Zazzle store linked. Problem with iTunes is that it doesn’t work with Linux, so I have to go on someone else’s computer and register it. For the Zazzle store can be found here.

Radical Geek on the Sound of Tomorrow

April 13 I teamed up with my friends from the Sound of Tomorrow (www.soundoftomorrow.com). I videoed them for a future episode of the Radical Geek. I was a guest on their podcast. Talked about the Rochester, NY geek scene and my podcast. I had a lot of fun, and can’t wait for it to go up.
