Alright, so it’s been like… What… Six months since Wicked Good Gaming launched? We’ve had an insane amount of views on our site, developed a pretty solid social media following, and we’ve even appeared on a few episodes of a podcast (shoutout to Shawn). We’ve done a handful of streams that nobody watches, so I guess the next natural course of action is to start a podcast – but here’s the big problem:
Everybody and their mother has one.
If you search on your podcast app of choice (shoutout to Overcast, love you bb) for any website, journalist, or their pet – you’ll probably find something to listen to. Podcasting seems like it’d be almost as hard to get into as, I dunno, starting a successful gaming website. We’ve never shied away from admitting it, so you already know that our biggest flaw at WGG is our schedules. Rob’s in med school, Chris has been insanely busy at his new real-life job, and I’ve got graphic design projects falling out of my ass left and right that I need to keep up with. Luckily I’ve made enough time to throw some content up almost every day, or else I’m sure this whole passion project would’ve been dead in the water.
So here we are. To be honest, we need your help. If you’re reading this, and you’ve read all of our other blogs – we need you to step up. Not Another Gaming Podcast will be dropping this Friday (god willing) and we need you to share the fuck out of it. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, whatever you use – tell people about the podcast. It’ll be slow to get off the ground at first, but I have faith that it’ll develop into something truly amazing as long as we have the support of the readers who have kept us going (shoutout to Japan).
If I’m being 100% transparent, we have no idea what the fuck we’re doing and we’ve said it from the start. We’re not journalists, and none of us have worked for major gaming outlets. We’re three regular guys who love to talk about gaming, drink a few beers, and have a ton of laughs – and we’re going to start recording it. That’s what Not Another Gaming Podcast is all about. We’ve got some incredible guests lined up, from industry writers, to popular streamers, to some of your favorite podcasters – and we haven’t even truly gotten started yet.
So from me (Papa Dom), Rob, and Chris – thank you for your support. Be on the lookout for Not Another Gaming Podcast this Friday. It’ll be available on that link back there (via Podbean) but we’re also pushing to get it onto iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play as soon as humanly possible. Until then, let us know what topics you’d like to see discussed over on Twitter at @WickedGoodGames!
