►Tell us about you and your podcast
Formerly the Mulehorn Gaming Podcast, this is Analog Assault - A Video Game Podcast hosted by Mulehorn117, Dirtybombz, and Circuit8.
We are your destination for video game news & opinions, movies, and general geekery. Our listeners are gamers, nerdy movie watchers, streamers, and people who generally like to geek out on normal nerdy things.
►Why & how did you start this podcast?
We started this podcast because we always seemed to have great conversations in our voice chat while playing games together. Finally, we thought, why not bring these funny and fun conversations to the air ways.
We do listen to a lot of podcasts. We want to makes friends, grow a community, and eventually get the traction to do this as a full time job. We started the podcast because of some influences I had with a shark tank company and turning a hobby into a buisness. We started a month after lining up a free wordpress website, and securing hosting. So, about a month after we decided to do this.
►How'd you find the time and funding to do this podcast?
We release episodes weekly. We stream it live via Mixer and also release an audio only version for itunes/podbean ect. The live podcast is uploaded to youtube in about a day. The audio only version takes about 3-4 days to produce. To find time, we make time. If you want it bad enough you find a way to make time, and that's what we do.
The cost for most hosting sites are around 100-120 a year. We have already purchased the gear so we don't have any other on going costs. Most of our funding is from our amazing supports via Patreon.com/mulehorngaming.
►What do you gain from podcasting?
We do take sponsorships, and it depends on the details and situation if there is any revenue sharing involved. We have not actively reached out to sponsors at the moment. We are more interested in creating our own brand.
Podcasting benefits me in that I can make relationships with amazing people in the gaming world. Plus I get to cover topics and events that I am interested in.
►How does your podcasting process look like?
The hardware varies on our hosts. Dirtybombz and Mulehorn117 both use blue yeti, while Circuit8 uses a different microphone product. We find guests by personally asking them via social media or email. How do we prepare? Keep it secret keep it safe.
►How do you market your show?
We are on most major platforms. But we also market our podcast via our website and social media. We have found the website and Twitter to be the most useful.
►What advice would you share with aspiring (new) podcasters?
Don't wait until you have all the right equipment to start growing in your craft. I didn't have a great mic when we started podcasting but we got creative and used a usb xbox 360 rock band mic. If you have a passion for something it will always show, so get after it and make it happen.
Listen to those you enjoy and like and emulate them. Learn from their mistakes and successes and find a great mentor to follow.
