210 Local Media Magazine – Issue 3 Vol 1
Yay, it’s an Editorial! – Issue 3 Vol 1
I started the 210 Local Media Podcast
after purchasing my first iPhone back in 2013, and discovering the Stuff You Should Know Podcast, Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast, and several podcasts about podcasting. I noticed that each show either had information to share, or a special type of bond with peaople that they shared, and that the form, really was like no other. I quickly became inspired to mix my love of local music, with the newfound awesomeness of podcasting. At the time, there were only a couple of San Antonio Podcasts; The Unavoidable Drudge, and The BoozedCast (both have podfaded for now). Admittedly, my first few episodes were plagued with sound issues, crazy podcasting scheduling, and finding people that were available and wanting to be interviewed.
Since then, we’ve been able to play mixed tape episodes, interviews, and entire albums on the podcast, put on two benefit shows, and helped to raise over $12,000 for a friend with cancer (In remission!). Since then, more local podcasts are popping up everywhere; The Owlcast, She’s Crafty, It’s a Guy Thing Podcast, Geek Culture, Vinyl Pizza, and Texas Music Spotlight, to name a few. So, here we are, and I’m taking advantage of being the guy that says what each issue can/should have. Check out the spread on the local podcasts, and the Alamo City Podcast Network we created to help each other out and gain a much larger footpring in the process.
