Back in February, which seems like ages ago at this point, Scott and I were hemming and hawing about what kind of guest to have on the show. We wanted someone interesting and somewhat edgy, who wasn’t going to talk about love and all the silly mushy stuff. Because who wants to hear that on V-day, amiright?
Thanks to a tip from listener and Unknown Studio girlfriend (mine!) Rachel, we asked Brenda Kerber from The Traveling Tickle Trunk if she was willing to be on the show to talk about sex toys and the sex parties she helps organize. The show was great (you can listen to it here), and we started talking back then about maybe embarking upon a sponsorship arrangement.
I’m pleased to announce that, after some discussions, back-room negotiations, and fights to the death, the Unknown Studio has a new sponsor in one of Edmonton’s truly great, community-building businesses: Brenda Kerber’s Traveling Tickle Trunk!
When Scott and I decided to looks for sponsors, we really wanted to engage in partnerships with local businesses. We didn’t want to just exchange money so we could post an add on our site. We’re trying to work with companies to develop our individuals brands together. Our sponsorship agreement with Traveling Tickle Trunk, Guru Digital Arts and the Edmonton Journal are helping us to do just that.
As some of you will know, we’re changing up the format of the show (more on that in the coming weeks). And part of that will mean a monthly segment from Brenda, as she talks about sex toy trends, sexual health issues, and really whatever strikes her fancy. We’ll also be running some contests with the Traveling Tickle Trunk — so make sure you subscribe to our eNewsletter for the latest and greatest on that!
Stay tuned to the show and the site for more information about our new partnership with a truly great Edmonton business!
