ON FIRE">The Flickcast is ON FIRE


If you fol­low me on Twit­ter, you’re prob­a­bly aware that I recent­ly start­ed doing a new pod­cast with Chris Ull­rich and Matt Raub called The Flick­cast. It’s about movies, TV, comics and all things geek. We’ve been hav­ing a blast (sub­scribe in iTunes here) and Matt and Chris are awe­some, awe­some guys. Matt does the edit­ing, Chris was the brain-child and the exec­u­tive pro­duc­er, and I get to throw in my opin­ions about info­tain­ment. It kicks ass.

We record­ed episode 4 ear­li­er today (well, tech­ni­cal­ly yes­ter­day) and our shows go live on Wednes­day’s. So we’re three weeks in. While the response has been real­ly pos­i­tive (and love it or hate it, we’d love to get your feed­back), we’re real­ists and know that build­ing any sort of audi­ence or momen­tum will take some time.

So imag­ine my sur­prise when I got an e‑mail from Matt a few min­utes ago with the sub­ject: “HOLY SHIT!!” and the pho­to below fea­tured (click for full-size):


Yeah. That’s us. In the TV & Film sec­tion of iTunes Pod­casts. Under New and Notable. That sound you just heard? It was me wak­ing up my obnox­ious upstairs neigh­bors (who sound like ele­phants, despite being quite small in stature and get home from work after mid­night so they make it hard to go to sleep), because I was whoop­ing like a hye­na.


The ego-cen­tric nature of this post made me ques­tion whether or not I should post this, but then I thought, what’s the point of hav­ing a blog if you aren’t going to be all navel-gaz­ing and self-aggran­diz­ing?

Con­tent is great. Might be a bit long though. Most peo­ple I would think who lis­ten and watch pod­casts prob­a­bly have a slew of sub­scrip­tions and hang­ing on to just one for say 30 mins is a long time. Con­gre­tu­la­tions!
