Okay, so it is 1:45 am and I'm in bed typing this out, while watching YouTube videos of game shows. I'm not tired yet, so I figured, why not update this with an update of what's happening?
For starters - PATREON IS UP! and my YouTube series is there. It's called "Munch" and it's just food talk! It's about ten minutes long, but each episode is a different snack or drink or something, but instead of in a car - it's in the Night Night studio.
I also update you on Game Shows I Suppose - upcoming guests, shows talked about, etc.
And soon - "Anything But Game Shows", where I talk about something that's NOT a game show that I personally enjoy in length! I'm unsure about this format, but I'm thinking it will be by myself, but I could see why you would need a guest. It's a patreon exclusive and it should be interesting.
But back to the stuff that's free...
Fun Time Calls is still going on, and it's still off the rails. Give it a listen sometime! Considering anchor just got bought by Spotify, that means we are making it to the big leagues! I don't know if I should put in advertising for that. ..
And Night Night is returning! It's still scheduled to be "whenever" (to work with scheduling guests for Game Shows, I Suppose) but tentatively, it's FRIDAY NIGHTS, but might be bumped to Saturdays. Each episode, we look at news, talk to Alexa, watch some videos and have a chill time. Patreon backers get to submit photos for the end credits, which I think is nice.
And finally, Game Shows, I Suppose is still going strong, and while I have a few interviews already in the can (that is lasting me until the end of March). My format let's me add on with any facts I missed, or upcoming news in game shows and the 110-part series looking at every pricing game on "The Price is Right". Hi-Lo was talked about most recently. I still have a long ways to go...
I am enjoying talking with guests, and I'm excited to have Brandon as an "in case of emergency", and I am thankful to anybody who reached out to me willing to put up with me for two hours to watch and record. We got some good guests lined up soon, please let people know about it.
I'm just trying to figure out scheduling with "the next block" and trying to figure out the right time to return somebody's email of "I gotta figure out a game show". Friend, nobody picked "I'm Telling!" Do you want to go to the Pick-a-Prize arcade or not? (But also, people are busy, and a weirdo asking them to show up to chat about an obscure game show they aren't experts in, might be off their mind)
Anyway - I just found out Microsoft gives you 1TB of cloud storage if you get Office 365, so this week has been surreal, as I've moved everything from Notepad, into Excel Spreadsheets and Microsoft Word Documents. Everything from what I've covered to to what shows have been "locked in" are accounted for. Even the introductions and what plugs go where!
Am I putting too much effort into the podcast when I barely edit the guest interviews? Or is it just something to do because I have time on my hands?
I honestly do not know, but at this point. I am having fun with this project, and I am continuing it, and I hope you all listen!
The format I created, somehow is successful, because it is a failsafe, if guests want to go in depth we could, if they just want to goof on it, it's also good. There is no wrong way to cover these shows!
I'm not saying successful in terms of "numbers" (I'm starting out, views and subscribers don't matter to me this early), but in something that is simple, yet structured. It's something I'm looking forward to covering. With each episode a new surprise, either in guest interaction, or facts about the shows. I could explain home game adaptations, the time capsule of the questions, anything, really... And enjoy it!
So in conclusion, it's funny seeing something with zero effort and Improvisational (fun time calls) with something very structural yet passionate (game shows I suppose)
And if I have free time - I got night night now with a chat feature! And I got patreon exclusive videos whenever I have free time and want to record something that interests me, rather it's a new snack, or a video game.
And finally, I still have this. The blog that I call home. The place where I can write a wall of text before bedtime. That might come across as rambling if I wake up tomorrow and read this.
The place where I keep Everybody Updated. And let people know - I fear I'll burnout on this. But if I don't need to prepare that much for a comedy podcast and the preparation is stuff I already do in my free time, it's all good.
I just gotta figure out how to play video games again, that's all. But until then, I'm going to keep talking into a microphone and hope you all have fun with me in the process.
And also, you could book me for your podcast. If I'm available I'll let you know!
