Podcasting ain’t no thang

Share us!

Except that podcasting IS, in fact, a “thang.”

Scott and I have been wrangling this here podcast for almost two years now. And the results have been, to my mind, astonishing. I know we talk an awful lot about it, but we’re pretty proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. And we’ve hit yet another milestone.

The Unknown Studio is now debt-free!

Thanks in no small part to our sponsors — The Traveling Tickle Trunk and Guru Digital Arts College — we’ve paid off hosting costs, equipment costs, music royalty costs, incorporation costs, etc. It’s a very exciting time for us. And it means we now have our very own, somewhat-portable home studio.

Since we started, we’ve been fortunate enough to have the use of a professional studio, thanks to Scott’s benevolent employers. It’s been unreal, actually. The quality of sound you hear on our show would not be possible without access to the space. But we’re quite limited as to when we can record, since they have, you know, a radio station to run.

So now we have our own recording studio that we can access at any time (and drink beer while using!) that features:

Your favourite local podcast continues to grow. We’ve become more ambitious, more ballsy, and more awesome over the last two years. And as we approach two huge milestones — our second birthday and our 50th episode — we’ve also become more self-centred and more self-impressed, but I honestly think it’s just a phase. For Scott.

Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, as we mentioned. To the Edmonton Journal for continuing to pimp our brand. To our guests for agreeing to suffer our company for as many as two hours at a time. And especially to our listeners for always supporting us.

Please comment, email us, and let us know how we’re doing, good and bad. We want to become YOUR source for hilarious Edmonton happenings. And next on our list of conquests: Calgary!

    Congrats on both your new debt-free existence and on the new portable studio. This means that the only thing between success and failure if your own moxie. You have moxie, don’t you?

      Unrelated tangent: Wasn’t Moxie the name of a restaurant? I think I went to a place called Moxie or Moxie’s at one point.

        Moxie’s is, indeed, a chain of restaurants.

          And yet I can’t recall seeing one at all recently. Maybe the food is so good that when I go there I lapse into some sort of culinary fugue state (probably not).

    Thanks, gents! Now Scott and I can finally invest in chocolate microscopes, double guitars, and more rubber stamps.

      Chocolate microscopes, you say? If that’s what you get for being a successful podcaster, maybe I need to get into this game!

      He should get a double keytar. It totally trumps a regular old double guitar.
