I have been through a lot when it comes to the podcast world. Let me tell you my story.
In January of 2013, I jumped on Spreecast with a friend of mine, Alex Strouf, from Welcome to Loud City (SB Nation's Oklahoma City Thunder site.) We started out doing a show for a sports forum. When we did the show for this forum, we interviewed guys like James Blair, the man that ran out on the court to see LeBron during a Cavaliers-Heat game, along with J From Compton, a 710 ESPN Radio LA Personality. Interviews like this continued to occur, but we eventually got tired.
We decided to stop the sports forum, and move out on our own. We created a show entitled "The Week in Sports," and we had a blast doing it. On The Week in Sports, we would do an episode every Tuesday, talking about the big news in sports for the past week. We had a guest for every show, which would usually end up being a writer for SB Nation. We would play sports trivia games with the guests, talk to them about what they do, and talk about any other sports topics that we felt were relevant. After all of this, we still felt that we wanted more.
At the beginning of July, we began working on a show that would be called "Two Perspectives: Sports Show," which would be audio, instead of the video that Spreecast had. We eventually got the idea to contact iTunes, our best idea yet. After rigorous phone calls and work, we were successful in getting our new podcast on iTunes, but we still felt that we needed more.
We decided to contact the manager of the podcast section of both the Windows Store AND the Zune Store. After we contacted him, he got back to us in no time, and put our podcast up within hours.
The point of this small story is that we are now a podcast on multiple platforms that include:
- The Windows Store
- The Zune Store
