For 29 weeks now I've been doing a wrestling podcast on the Jittery Monkey Podcasting Network. The show is also on iTunes, Stitcher and Poddirectory. Each week I've had a new show drop (one week there were two shows) and people still seem surprised when I tell them I have a show. That tells me that social media isn't as social as I thought, because like this blog I share my podcasts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest and Reddit.
I'm slowly gaining listeners, but honestly the process is taking longer than I anticipated. For example, I have a great interview up right now with WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling legend Mick Foley. As of this post, less than 60 people have heard that show. Maybe I shouldn't be admitting this, but I thought Episode 27: Mrs. Foley's Baby Boy would quickly outpace my most listened podcast featuring an interview with current WWE Superstar Sheamus. That show by the way is just over 100 listens and is my most listened. Indy star "Gentleman" Jervis Cottonbelly is a close second.
I'm writing about my podcast not to complain, but to hopefully drum up some interest. I have several interviews available. Besides Sheamus, Foley and Cottonbelly; I've done podcasts with Kamala, Jeff Jarrett and "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton. Nigel McGuinness and other indy stars like Heath Hatton, Pokerface and "Golden Boy" Greg Anthony have all been on too.
I try to have an interview every week. When I can't get a wrestler on the show, Chad and I provide some analysis. We've talked about WWE Network shows, eulogized "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes and handed out our annual Centy Awards.
If you haven't listened and are a fan of wrestling, give it a try. If you have listened and don't like it, let me know what I can do differently. I'll be honest, this is a hobby that I'm hoping to take to the next level. I would love to do more blogging, vlogging and podcasting. Thanks for the support as always.
