Well, it's been in the works and I have discussed it on my personal blog, but now it's official. This network is officially being developed and something that will be a lot of fun. First of all, I am Adam Mulholland, the creator of the AM Podcast Network. I have been podcasting for a couple years now and fell in love with the entire process. I have met a lot of wonderful people as well and decided to give it a go. This network is focused on audio entertainment and that's why I wanted to build something completely separate from what I have been doing. Not only that, but also to bring some of my friends over to a platform that has one mission, audio entertainment.
I am obviously in the beginning stages and even as I write this on December 21st, 2013 I don't have a single podcast on the site...yet. This is all in preparation for 2014. I even built a brand new home studio just to focus on podcasting and hopefully some Youtube videos as well. I want to build a solid fan base and a place that censorship has no place. I have seen too many times people not say what is really on their mind because of fear of sponsors dropping them or losing audience. We want to bring hardcore fans in that wear thick skins, and understand it's entertainment.
It will take time to build a network worth listening to. I am not starting this with anything more than the money in my pocket, my website building skills, and whatever else I learned along the way. This is what I enjoy and what I want to grow. I certainly hope many people like yourself will feel the same and be an active part of our fanbase.
A lot of people I told about this didn't understand how I was going to make money, or even grow this. I have to admit that I am not really sure either, but it's not about that. It's about having the freedom to discuss ANYTHING, ANYTIME, and ANYWHERE with EVERYONE. Communication is so important to me that I could care less if I never make a dime from this website. Now hopefully we will provide enough entertainment and a really great site that some might want to donate a little bit or a brave advertiser will want to sponsor us. I guess time will tell.
My biggest goal in this network is getting the audience involved. I want to integrate your voices into the site. I do plan on having a forum eventually and I will use Livefyre comments for each post. I apologize for not using Disqus or Facebook, but I just don't want to. They get fairly complicated and they want to put their ads on the site and I just never really liked either of them. I want to keep this simple and straight-forward. So I hope everyone will join me and help make this a very successful network and I will be scouting great podcast startups to join in as well.
