The idea i had with this podcast episode one The Mischief Maker.

I wanted to make a twilight zone esc podcast based in Australia using our history and character but i didn’t want to go for the standard Ned KELLY story as that has been done to death.

So i started looking and found a few great character from our history and decided to slot them into a fanatical adventure.

the character in episode one was based on one of australis first female pilots. Nancy Bird Walton, now she never met a gremlin in the sky or anting like that but thats the show I’m gong for. Bit of scifi bit of history. It’s a good research tool for me to discover these great Aussie characters and maybe peak the interest of some other folks whom may want to look into it further. Who knows?

Below is some links to nancy bird you may want to have a look. What a bloody legend just started reading her book “My God! It’s a Woman”

So marketing and self promotion.

So ive spent the most of the public holiday and yesterday evening going through a wiki page called “List of United States cities by population”

I’ve been tweeting Hey #Newyork etc etc so its been a drag but i’m hoping to pick up some followers who will listen to the show. i only made it to 80 odd…so it will take weeks. I love the tweet deck feature where i can set up tweets for each area. So im going to try and meet people around about commenting times so 7:30-08:30 so when folks are on their mobiles. See how i go.

24 hours out there

been getting some nice folks pumping the show which is ACE!

1st Review!

Marketing Monday

So I’m using twitter to try and spread the word about the show, So far i only have 6 followers but hey I’ll take six. I’m going with the approach of saying G’day to every city in the USA England and Europe over the next few weeks to help spread the word. Hopefully i’ll find some audio drama nerds out there like me that will like and share.

This is all very now to me and i gotta say i’m having a great time but season two looms and i need tow write nine more episode and get a kickstarter together for season two.

Happy to say the test ran successfully on iTunes and Spotify so I’m ready to to just awaiting the last file from my very patine and good friend rob.
