A couple of months back, I was out with two of my old friends. While tipping back a few beers and munching on the delicious bar food, we got into the topic of old TV shows. You, know, old. Like from the 70s and 80s. One friend, who also happens to be named Mike, half-joking, mentioned on how the conversation we were having would be an interesting podcast. As the conversation deepened and the beers flowed, we committed to making a podcast about these old shows just for fun. My other friend, let’s call him “Scott”… well, that actually is his name, had no idea what a podcast is and offered to do some dance moves in the background. We played along.
Unlike most ideas, we didn’t let this one drop. While it’s not a business venture and we’re not expecting to profit from it, it was a great reason to stay connected an get together more frequently. We threw together a website, gave ourselves a crash course on podcasting, and recorded and released our first episode on iTunes today. Making that first episode was a lot of fun and a great learning experience. Looking forward to the rest of them.
While it’s not a domaining related podcast, I invite you to check it out “I Used to Watch This?” on iTunes or where ever you happen to get your podcasts. Give us a rating if you like it and stay tuned for the next episode where we talk about one of my favorite childhood shows. I’m not the youngest domainer on the block so some of these may be hidden treasures younger people should check out to see how good/bad TV used to be.
Hey Mike, congrats on launching your podcast!

Andrew – Thanks and PodcastGuests.com looks like an awesome site. Great idea. I’d love to learn more about it.
Great idea! In a perfect world, everybody would have at least 1 website of their own as a hobby or passion project or excuse for friends to get together.
Looks fun: “The Six Million Dollar Man”
TV of that vintage reminds me of watching MST3K
