Commercials - Season Two!

Boldcasting is pleased to announce that 2018 will kick off our ambitious Season Two of our Commercials podcast. If you haven't already given a listen, take some time and catch up. These podcasts are always under two minutes and highlight just how silly the capitalist idea of "marketing" can be. We also work to string some plots together across our commercials, with characters appearing in more than one fake ad to create mini story lines with our short podcast.

We are setting some lofty goals for Season Two. Hopefully this will be the year we manage to post a show every business day of the week (weekends have proven unworkable difficult), and holidays may present some problems. If we reach our goal, that means season two will consist of 260 episodes!

We also plan to vary our season two content with not just silly ads, but also unique promotional ads for other podcasts! These will be chosen at random by the Boldcasting crew and provided to the podcaster with out any reimbursement expected. These promos will still be focused on being entertaining and fun to listen to, something most promo's lack. We look forward to cross promotion and networking with other podcasters.

As our backlog of shows grows (and only the most frequent are hosted), we will also be exploring ways to use old shows as a "best of" presentation, and hosting the remaining on a "on demand" type of situation for new listeners who want to "catch up".

Boldcasting is excited for 2018! With our new season of Commercials, and EPCOY about to begin dropping, we look forward to a year of quality content and expanded offerings.

Welcome to 2018!

Ending Radio Silence

Hi All, Sorry its been so long since a post, or a new episode. Here at Boldcasting, we have been looking for even more exciting talent to send your way. After all, Boldcasting is a platform for the strange and different, not just people in front of microphones talking. To that end, its looking more and more like we have managed to land the exclusive talent of Rick Certain! As many of you know, Rick was a morning disc jockey of legend at WPAZ in Appleton for years. His morning shows are still traded by lovers of strange and unique audio performances the world over. We caught up with Rick and have negotiated a deal that is looking like we will be the exclusive provider of these shows on our podcast. We look forward to working with Rick, and the rest of his morning crew in the coming days!

Ricks Corner - Radio Wine Interview Pt. 1

We are proud to offer this exclusive interview with Rick Certain, our newest talent to sign on with our Podcasting network. We sat down with Rick to get a feel for his days in radio, and why his shows are still considered some of the oddest morning radio to ever be made, and where he is planning to go in the digital age.

We caught up to Rick in his Study on a Saturday Afternoon. Rick was dressed business casual and positioned himself in front of just a few of his Radio Awards.

Boldcasting:Rick, thanks for joining us.
Rick Certain: This is completely my pleasure.Boldcasting: Lets start with the basics, what is your background with Radio production?Rick Certain: Well, I'm a late model boomer, so of course I get into radio when it was easy to do. I just walked into a radio station and could put two words together with out lisping, so naturally they put me on air with huge salary instantly.Boldcasting: Any college or technical schooling?Rick Certain: Haha, No. I did get an honorary d…

Podcast Market Research

Sorry we have been a bit missing in action for this last week. If you are going through some commercials withdraw, worry not, more to be posted soon, and we really appreciate your listening.

We haven't wasted this week. Progressing our podcast to being the best podcast it can be, means taking time away to understand what listeners are looking for in a Podcast. Its fun to create satire commercials, and in many ways, very easy since "Marketing" is basically a inside joke. But we want to offer more than just two minute giggles every day.

As such, we have been LISTENING to a lot of other podcasts. In sales training, I frequently heard that there were "lots of books on sales" but "no books on listening." Why not apply the same thing to our endeavor?

So here are two shows that listeners of our Commercials Podcast will find delightful:
