Pick a list of teams you all know something about and then draw them out of a hat so (unless the FIX is in) it should create a sense of urgency.

JLA should probably be the next team. Then maybe a crossover all-female team where you can't pick 2 characters in a row from the same company.

In the last few weeks, between folks approaching us on Twitter or folks we met at Steel City Con, we have a lot of people wanting us to review their books/products. One guy wants us to do a dust jacket blurb or something for a comic he is releasing. We also met a guy with a T-shirt company who said he could put us in contact with Rick Veitch for an interview.

I'm reading and writing a blog review on a book someone sent us called "Invasion From Planet Wrestletopia", and it's actually a really funny book.

Only way you know I like is if I give that knowing half smile like from the movie whiplash

We are doing all right. Website views aren’t where I want them to be yet, but to be fair, we have put like a total of $10 into actual advertising online at this point. I keep meaning to do some ads on Twitter and FB and stuff, but I get distracted.

We are growing though. We are still recording every week and we are on a TON of platforms now (iTunes, Stitcher, Apple podcasts, Tune In, Google Play, YouTube all off the top of my head. My cohosts loves the fact that he can just tell Alexa to play our show and it does.

We have a booth at Three Rivers Con coming up in May, and we will probably go around and try to interview as many creators that day as we can.

So we are still moving forward and getting bigger. Something like 1600 Twitter followers and email subscribers (each, not combined) so that is nice. Gotta start spending some ad money though.

And I always post our new episode every Tuesday in my signature here ;)

Also, we have a few things coming up. Next Sunday night I am guest starring on another comic book podcast, on the 13th, we are all guest starring on a movie podcast, and on the 19th, we are having a guest star from a video game horror podcast. So we are in the community!

Very nice start! Cant be underestimated. You should continuously be looking for new ways to grow and new ways to build the community. Have you thought about making a Facebook group for fans of the show? Building enthusiasm through your already large following is a great way to build your brand.

Theres plenty of free things you can do. Put together a few images and post them on Instagram with relevant hashtags is just one example (I've noticed you can build up quick engagement with a public Instagram account).

Thanks, man. I spend a lot of time on Twitter and I have started all of our YouTube stuff recently. I have done a shit job paying attention to Instagram, but I think Andy has started posting some teasers and what-have-you there. We have a Facebook... page? Or Group? I am not sure which. I have heard one is better than the other, but I can't recall, haha.

Both but in my opinion a group for engagement. And once you have people in the group, I'd do things like free contests and shit "have a guest segment on the next podcast" or "get your answers questioned on the next podcast" or something.

Yeah, just don't spend too much time on our older episodes when we had a much crappier microphone. Oy.

We put up a video of our Halloween party from Saturday, so you can enjoy us all singing karaoke really badly.
