This week’s cohost is Donna K.
Learned a bunch in the first two formative episodes about what this show may turn out to be. Hearty handshakes and meaty milkshakes go to the cohosts, to our one drop-in guest and our sole caller to date (no worries, it’s early times and hardly anybody knows what we’re doing yet), and particularly to the small but rowdy band of early adopters on the social media front.
Our first two cohosts, Julio and Jeremy, quickly established a freewheeling and free-associative approach that was entertaining and compelling, chock fulla unexpected twists and turns. They opened doors I hadn’t noticed and gave me perspectives on what this thing can be that I hadn’t considered. Of course, every cohost will be different, and that’ll be part of the week-to-week creamy goodness. That’s people. That’s community. That’s what this is about.
The social media aspect has turned out to be a hoot. The first episode totally unexpectedly went off like a rocket on WOOL’s Facebook group; the second one got off to a slower start but then came nicely to life too.
Since last week, a website and a Facebook page have been set up for the show. Give the website a try! The commenting system is very much like Facebook’s — you can even log in with your Facebook credentials. But unlike Facebook, you don’t need to have an account on Facebook or anywhere else to use it. Listen in, join in.
If you missed the first two shows, it’s fun to listen to them while reading the commentary (episode #1 and its commentary… episode #2 and its commentary). Hopefully the real-time chatter will take place on the website going forward so everything’s all in the same place, fully and easily accessible to everyone. But I clearly have little to no control over anything, so we’ll see what happens. In any case, hope it stays active and fun because it’s fun when it’s active.
