Welcome everyone! It’s the first Monday in October and we are now in our 3rd month of When The Lights Go Out! This project has been incredible to work on and I can’t thank everyone enough for tuning in. I want to talk a little bit about how we make stuff, the help we’ve gotten, and where we’re going!
Our blog posts, igtv videos, and podcasts all start from a place of passion. Someone has an idea about a topic they want to learn more about so they research it. They then write a script and we talk about it. Sometimes it just needs some edits, sometimes it doesn’t, and sometimes we realize we need a different perspective and might need to reach out to someone. Once we’ve got it sorted out, we either post it (if it’s a blog post) or start production on it. By the time we get to recording a podcast we’ve already put a lot of work in, and then we get to have fun and talk about what interests us. After that it’s off to be edited and posted!
It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun to work on this project, and we’ve gotten a lot of help from friends! We’ve had people work on editing our blog posts, our pitches, and even our logo! We can’t thank those people enough. It means a great deal that they want to help us do something that we love.
With all that we’ve done so far, I’m excited with where we’re going! We have a few podcasts ready to go and so many more we are getting ready to bring to you. There are some fun projects we’re working on that will be a little different as well, so keep your eyes peeled for those.
We also want to make podcasts on topics you want to hear! If you have an idea, have an expertise in something interesting, or know someone who does, reach out to us! We’re always looking for different angles that go beyond sports. You can find all our information on the website.
We’d love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to reach out. Whether it’s about our upload schedule, content, website, or anything else, we want to hear it. Improving the quality of this endeavor just makes it that much more fun!
Thank you for reading this far! And thank you for listening and paying attention to our project. It means the world to us, and it would be great if you could get the word out! Tell your friends, parents, siblings, grandparents, whoever! The more listens and ratings we get on podcast services and the more likes and follows we get on social media means we can make more interesting things.
Next week I’ll get back to funky things in sports, I promise. See yah then!
