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.

RocPodFest 2015

I am going to be doing RocPodFest this year.  I have something planned for the 10 minutes I am on.  Link to the event is below.
