Big Business and Hollywood Discovers Podcasting

The big guys are getting into podcasting these days. That means independent voices are more important than ever. Learn more in Independent-Podcasting-Necessary-Voices-Bob Davis Podcast 837.

Big Political Operators Too

Especially relevant are big political operators.

Independent Voices

Consequently supporting independent voices is more important than ever.

Being Independent Means We Make Our Own Decisions

What I have learned working for broadcast companies is especially relevant to creative people who are often the trail blazers and trendsetters. First of all, as independent voices we make our own decisions about our content.

Being On A Big Platform Might Mean More Control Of What You Do

Certainly being on a big platform is great for more feeds. Above all though, what happens when you go against the grain? I’ll tell you in Independent-Podcasting-Necessary-Voices-Bob Davis Podcast 837.

Free Speech

Everyone has a right to produce content their way. That includes business, political operatives and entities like public radio.

Happy To Be On Our Own

Similarly independent voices are necessary. I’m talking about those of us out here on our own. Today’s political climate is most noteworthy in this discussion.

Huge Opportunity For Independent Creators

Back in the day blogging was responsible for some of the most objective and powerful reporting. I think a similar opportunity exists today when it comes to podcasts.

Your Favorite Podcast Might Be Owned By The Mercers

Finally if every platform is owned by big business, political operatives, radio companies, Hollywood and institutions like public radio and TV it implies control of information and opinions, by definition.

Creating Our Own Content Answering To No One

So here’s to us independent content creators. We podcasters and YouTubers writing and producing our own content, trying to monetize our efforts, and saying what we think. No matter what.

Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans

These days when it comes to podcasting milestones should be marked. My first podcast was in 2009. It’s most noteworthy that I have supported myself with a single podcast since 2013. Learn more in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Eight Hundred Podcasts

First of all after eight hundred podcasts I’ve done just about every crazy idea I can think of. I have never had a problem creating content or finding things to talk about. It is a creative challenge to come up with fresh ideas and venues for each podcast. Something I take very seriously. Here’s the Dillinger Podcast. And, here’s the Bonnie and Clyde Podcast.

Content Creators Business Challenge

Especially relevant for podcasters is the business challenge we face as independent content creators. Sure, if you’re famous there’s plenty of cash and help to put up a successful podcast.

Hardscrabble Media

In contrast the people close to my heart are the independent creators. I like to think of us as the hardscrabble farmers of the media ecosystem. Find out how it is for us in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Blog Page For Podcasts

Finally there have been a lot of changes at the Bob Davis Podcasts since the first podcast. The blog page is a full strength resource with blogs and links to my research for every podcast. Moreover I have committed myself to refusing to endorse, or fight for a point of view when it comes to politics.

No Shouting

In conclusion I find the social implications of policy far more interesting than joining the crowd shouting at listeners and subscribers about what they should believe and what they ‘should’ do. Do whatever you want. Believe what you will and more power to you!

Future Fun

2019 and 2020 will be big years for this podcast. Once I reach business goals the fun begins on the road. More about that later. Thanks to all of you for your support, subscriptions, and listening and especially sponsorships.

You will never know how much I appreciate it.
