Glenn The Geek Road Report

Glenn has recorded a few episodes on the road this week, and at one point was in the parking lot of a liquor store to get good wi-fi. He is getting great feedback from his audience, and seeing the products that people have purchased after hearing it on his show. 

Glenn then has the customer record a testimonial about the product and sends it to the sponsor (this should make it easy to renew their contract as Glenn has audible proof that advertising on his show works).

Leading the Bleeding ( A Journey Podcast)

I start a new strictly hobby podcast that will help me understand more about earning Bitcoin with your podcast. See for more information. So far I've earned 65.74 (131,866 sats) and will be joined by my friend Harry Durran from Podcast Junkies and (hopefully) many more people as we create a "Study group." In the words of the great band King's X, "Everybody knows a little bit of Something" and we hope to get a group of people into a zoom meeting and share ideas, insights, and education.
