all about podcasting
A space to share contests, interviews, tips and more
This week on The Podomatic Feature Series we focus on music fans and what we all can do to help businesses through these historically unique times.
Since 2013, the Chicago based NightClub UNDERGROUND has been podcasting DJ sets and mixes made by the talent that performs at the venue.
UNDERGROUND’s podcast serves not only to promote the club and it’s amazing lineup; it also documents and preserves its history. Leaving you with hours of pumping mixes to get you through isolation. Like any business that relies on the general public’s attendance, UNDERGROUND is finding new ways to raise enough money to support their staff and reopen someday soon.
Please visit their website to find out how
you may be able to support UNDERGROUND during this time.
When, how and why did you start podcasting?
We felt early on that the Podcast channel and method of communicating was going to grow rapidly but more importantly we believed in our brand and our partners from a musical standpoint. We believed and still believe we have a standout musical product and we want to share!!
Describe some of the struggles you've had with the COVID shut down, your current fundraising efforts, and how people can get involved.
Well I think that for everyone trying to raise cash at the moment it's tough. This hasn’t only affected us in hospitality but its affected the whole globe in all industries. We have some great purchasable options for people on our site if they want to help. We felt it was important to offer some great deals and options rather than just asking for donations.
Advice for people that haven’t pressed record yet?
Podcasts will continue to grow in terms of communication channels. If you have something you are passionate about or believe others will be then you should get involved!!
