U Snooze U Lose

As you know I'm a podcaster. I currently have five podcasts running and I'm working on a few others. One that I have been talking about since Oct. 2010 is called Epic Geek Out. It was suppose to be a 30 minute round table debate with a group of four or five guests. Well it never came to be. The logistics  and trying to get everyone together was just too difficult so I pushed it to the back burner.

Last year I interviewed my friend Charles from North Carolina for my Confessions of a Fanboy Podcast and we hit it off. We talked about doing a podcast together called Geek Wars, were we would debate geeky topics like Star Wars Vs. Star Trek. It would be a round table kind of debate with several different guests each podcast.

We since I already had a URL, gmail account, twitter and podbean account for Epic Geek Out I figured we'd just change the name to that to make it easier.

When I tried to get the URL for Epic Geek Out back in Oct 2010 it was taken so I go instead. When I checked out it was a unused url. Well I just check it again today and it looks like they started posting stuff on there in June 2011. It's a video review show. Luckily it's not a podcast so it's still available on itunes. 

But I don't want people to think that, that website is associated with our podcast so it's looking like I'm going to have to change the name again.

When I was looking up "Geek" titles on itunes I saw a show called Geek Fight and when I read the description it sounded very familiar to what we wanted to do. So now I'm trying to figure out what I want to do next.. scrap the idea or do it anyways and hope there is an audience out there for it.

I know I really want to do a general geek podcast, just need to find the "hook" that makes it different from the hundreds of other geeky podcasts.

  1. We'll figure it out for sure. Just gotta brainstorm and figure out a good niche :)
