With Kat & Curt’s TV Re-View (KCTVRV) launching earlier this week, I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who has helped get the word out. My co-host Kat has already done a bit of reciprocity, but I don’t think we can thank these folks enough.
Dr. Amy H. Sturgis has been a great help in getting out the word, posting multiplementions about KCTVRV on her delightful blog. Dr. Sturgis has a passion for both pop culture and intellectual history, and her enthusiasm upon hearing about KCTVRV has inspired and encouraged both Kat and I, and we really appreciate her personal support. We also appreciate her linking us up with…
StarShipSofa, the Hugo-winning science fiction podcast, which ran an exclusive promo for KCTVRV in their latest episode #292. We were nestled in among some great content, including a “Looking Back at Genre History” segment from Dr. Sturgis on Star Trek and Native Americans as well as a great story about a Labradoodle war-dog — which is exactly as awesome as it sounds! Especially thanks to StarShipSofa host Tony C. Smith for both playing our promo in the episode and encouraging people to check out KCTVRV.
The Mythgard Institute gave us some love as well. I’ve talked about Mythgard before, and it’s worth noting that Mythgard is a big reason why KCTVRV got started. To say that much of our inspiration has come from Mythgard founder Dr. Corey Olsen’s own Tolkien Professor podcasts would not be an overstatement.
Jenna St. Hilaire is a person I don’t know, but Kat knows her, and because of their acquaintance, Jennaposted a blurb on her blog about KCTVRV — so, thank you, Jenna!
Our listeners because — holy crap, we have listeners! Seriously, we’ve gotten some great comments already on our first episode, and according to FeedBurner, we have a subscriber base numbering in the double digits, which I’ll be honest, is two digits more than I thought we’d have at this point.
My brother Mike who told me in an email that our first episode “Really flowed smoothly, and before listening to it, honestly, I thought it would be more disjointed.” So, um, thanks?
Impossible Podcasts because they are random strangers who tweeted about us.
And of course, I must thank….
Katherine Sas, my KCTVRV co-host and proprietor of the Raving Sanity blog, whose Game of Thronesposts are outstanding and whose Doctor Who posts I don’t read because, duh, spoilers! If not for her, it would just be me talking, and nobody really wants that.
In just a few days we’ll be posting Episode 2, where we’ll be talking about the first episode in each series. It’s gonna be a good one. Trust me, I know, because I’ve heard it already.
