Thinking of starting a comedy podcast with a tech/gadget theme to it.
Wondering if this is something the average person would be interested in?
- News: Legitimate tech/gadget news (phones, computers, tablets, etc)
- Support: (comedians write in or call in as characters with ridiculous fake tech problems, that we have to try to fix)
- Geek battle: iPhone vs Android, Windows vs Mac, PS3 vs Xbox, etc
- Guest: Comedians, Tech people, musicians, etc discuss their favorite gadget or technology and how it helps them pursue their career/hobbies.
Just spitballing right now, also trying to think of a name for it. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for any of this, or want to chime in on if this is a stupid or great idea. Please do. Thanks!
Jealousy and bitterness exist in just about every pursuit, and especially artistic ones. I can only speak from a comedian’s perspective, but I’ve watched it ruin people. I believe that if you are going to pursue stand up comedy as a career, you have to understand that there is no clear cut path to “making it.” You can’t let yourself think that paying dues leads to anything except the lessons and experiences that you take away. You can’t start believing that another person’s success is your failure. You can’t become so jaded that you write off the entire industry because of a few perceived injustices. There’s always someone who has more of a right to complain than you do and chooses not to. Falling into cynicism about things outside of your control can poison everything you do and derail you from honing your craft, which is always THE MOST IMPORTANT THING.
