About a month ago during our Set a Watch campaign, I received an email from a radio show in NYC called Passage to Profit. You get a lot of emails during a Kickstarter campaign so I didn’t really follow-up on it until after it had finished up. After a few emails back and forth and a phone call, I was invited to their podcast as a “Kickstarter Expert.”
The hosts of Passage to Profit, Elizabeth and Richard Gearhart were incredibly nice. I’ve been on a few board game podcasts before, but they usually just record over Skype or something else via the internet. I had never taped a podcast/radio show at the iHeartRadio studios in NYC and it was really cool to be in a studio with a producer behind the glass. I was very impressed with the professionalism of everyone involved, but I guess that type of thing should be expected from New York area attorneys.
It was a fun adventure and while I don’t think the show is particularly geared towards board gamers, I enjoyed sharing my (limited) knowledge about Kickstarter and being an entrepreneur on the show. I even got to sit on the final pitch section of the show and ask some questions Shark Tank style.
You can listen to the episode which aired this weekend on
