What happens when you get Terry Brock in the studio and record the first video of the radio show? No, this is not the song video killed the radio star! Yet it did create some interesting conversations and interactions and raised a few questions in my mind about video and its place in making an impact.
My guest on this episode is the incomparable and totally fun Terry Brock. We challenged each other to figure out how to add video to the live radio show when the studio does not have any cameras and has no capability of accepting newfangled methods of communicating like internet calling. How were we going to do it and still provide a good show, which you are all used to by now!, for the live listening audience that has a radio in their car, home or was listening on iHeart radio? If the show was just a recorded podcast we could always redo it but we were live on terrestrial radio!
Feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the planning and inability to test in the studio until we went live, I decided to ask my guest how he deals with overwhelm. He does have a popular Tedx talk on Overcoming Overwhelm!
From there we talked about video and its use in providing value related to your brand, the questions you need to ask while figuring it all out and learned a number of great resources when you are looking to add video and ramp up your marketing.
One of my favorite shows from the shear fun of the conversation and figuring out all the tech to make it work! Tweet to @TheLauraSteward and tell me what you think!
What can the Pony Express teach us about changing technology? What can the movie “The Matrix” teach us about adapting to change?
