Greetings And Welcome, Everybody! 😎
VERY exciting news I can finally share. I have a brand new podcast I’ve just launched. Been working on this for a few months now. I did a few podcasts in the distant past when podcasting was sort of in its infancy. They worked out OK. But there just weren’t enough hours in the day for me to give them the effort and dedication they needed. I was way too busy with my music, my photography and working with Disney at the time. But now, well…. times are different. I’ve changed. My goals and aspirations have changed. Not leaving my music or photography endeavors behind mind you. Just different placement and priorities. But there just comes a time in a persons life when he or she might just want to explore other paths. Or in my case, RE-explore something that I once had quite the passion for but didn’t have enough time to fully explore.
Anyway – the name of the new podcast is, “The Storyteller Almanac Podcast.” Its all about slices of life and good, heartwarming stories that make up our heritage and culture (I think we all need that type of thing right about now in life … don’t you? ❤️). There’ll also be some one on one interviews with some unique and inspirational people. I intend on having this project as diverse as possible. Some episodes might be 5 minutes long. Some could be 30 minutes long. Almost anything goes!
The podcast is set up to be available on most major platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Pocketcasts and a few more. It’ll also be available as a stand alone audio file right HERE on my main website. The specific URL to that site is: www.StorytellerAlmanac.com . As I say, the latter version on this site will be a stand alone audio file with no RSS feed – meaning they will not automatically download to your device or computer like the versions on Apple Podcast, Spotify and others will (as long as you subscribe to those versions … no charge / no obligation by the way). To search any of those aforementioned platforms, simply type, “Storyteller Almanac,” in the search bar of each respective podcast platform.
Episode 1 is a 3 minute introductory podcast and is actually available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Pocketcasts NOW! The other platforms will go live over the next few days (so I’m told 😜). But I’ve also included it herein this blog post to make life easier and simpler for you.
These podcast episodes will all be audio only for the most part. But I’m gonna try an experiment or two doing a video slideshow type podcast that I’ll upload and have available on YouTube, this blog, the main page of www.StorytellerAlmanac.com and on my new Facebook page for Storyteller Almanac (Link: Facebook Page – Storyteller Almanac). As of now, no plans for RSS feed or any auto download options for any video podcast episodes. Stay tuned for this beta test.
Last but not least, I’ll be releasing and uploading a new episode every Wednesday. Please bear in mind that sometimes the availability process may take an extra day depending on the individual podcast platform. That one is out of my hands. But I’ll make every effort to make sure they get up there and available by Wednesday – even if it means they might become available a wee bit earlier than Wednesday.
Well I think that’s about it for now. Definitely more to come so please keep checking back. Thanks for stoppin’ by neighbor. I surely hope you like what you’re seeing – or should I say hearing 😜. Until next time, God Bless. Be good to each other … we’re all we’ve got. Peace!
Mike – The Storyteller 😎
