Thread: so... about those podcasts...

  1. #1

    so... about those podcasts...

    A few people have mentioned the podcasts on the Forums, and Reece encouraged me to post a bit about them, so here we go.

    There are two MOA-produced podcasts; the first is Chasing the Horizon and it is aimed at the entire body of motorcycle riders and the motorcycle industry. There are two parts to each episode - first, news about what's going on in the motorcycle industry at large, especially some overseas stuff that might be outside most riders' radar. I also get into some racing news from time to time. Second is a discussion with somebody from the motorcycle world - maybe a regular rider, but also maybe a CEO.

    You can (of course) subscribe to Chasing the Horizon in any major podcast-listening app or platform, or you can also stream the episodes directly from the CTH website at http://horizon.bmwmoa.org/. We're up to 47 episodes and Episode 48 will feature an interview done by another MOA member, Scott Correy. It will be Scott's third appearance on the show, but the first time an interview he's done is the centerpiece.

    The second podcast is 200 Miles Before Breakfast, and it is all about the members of the MOA. In each episode I talk about some upcoming MOA event or member benefit, then have a chat with a member of the MOA. It's been a lot of fun getting to know my fellow members. You can subscribe to 200MBB anywhere you like, too, and you can also stream from the MOA website at https://www.bmwmoa.org/page/200milespodcast. I'll be pushing the 10th episode some time over the weekend, Monday at the latest.

    I've greatly enjoyed creating the podcasts from the ground up and the support for them that's come from the members, staff and Directors. I look forward to continuing both shows and am always open to suggestions from you as to who you'd like me to have as a guest on either show. Feel free to post here or to email me at podcast@bmwmoa.org. Between both shows you can get a new episode every Monday morning for your commute to work!!

    As I say at the end of every CTH episode - see you out there on the road... or off it! Ride safe

    Since I can embed an episode directly, here's the most recent episode of both shows. Enjoy!

    on the Alonzo Bodden episode of CTH.

    One suggestion for the 200 miles page - you list the episodes and they have names attached, but a bio synopsis about the featured member would make it more likely to gain enough interest to click on one and give it a listen.

    He was a ton of fun to talk to and LOVES his BMWs. If he comes to your town, please support him by going to see his show. Dude is funny!

    Thanks for the suggestion, that's a good idea. We're discussing better ways to process/store/display the 200MBB episodes so once we settle on something, I'll incorporate this idea.

    The Podcasts

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the (both) podcasts, and have found myself listening to the one with Jack Riepe repeatedly; we could tell you were tickled to talk with him too!! Keep up the good work, with interesting guests and your intelligent questions.

    Thanks Lance - yeah, Jack cracked me up enough that several times I had to mute my microphone.

    Here's the newest episode of 200MBB; our guest is Deb Gasque, 2018 Rally Co-Chair and Iron Butt Fashionista Extraordinaire!

    New episode of Chasing the Horizon is available - get it here before it goes out to subscribers!

    Our guest is Loryn Cole, who restored a Honda XL250R from the ground up and went on to display it in the One Moto show out in Portland. She's interviewed by Scott Correy and Elizabeth Howe, a couple that have co-hosted before and are helping out with more & more as they get more involved in the MOA.

    Thank you, Wes for doing these and for posting links here on the forum. This, imo, is money well spent.

    It could be even better spent, imo, if the MOA made the investment to place PAID advertising via social media and Google AdWords system. Use the podcasts as “bait,” of course.

    We could be reaching TONS of non-members that are interested in BMW motorcycles, making a positive impression through your work, and making a pitch for joining the MOA. (See previous discussions about sales funnels).

    I know you probably don’t get paid much to do these, but we could be getting SO MUCH MORE return on our investment if we just threw a few dollars toward paid placement.

    Wes, MOA member since 2011, is currently the president of the club's Board of Directors. We chat about motorcycles, the MOA, volunteerism and the upcoming 2019 Rally in Lebanon, Tennessee. This episode includes news about personnel changes at BMW Motorrad and next year's rally date and location, too!

    Where's Wes?

    Sabbatical, LOA, or summer flu?

    Have not seen any new episodes lately on CTH or 200? Am I missing something?

    Hope you are well, Wes.
