U Snooze U Lose
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 EGO.com instead. When I checked out EpicGeekOut.com 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.
