To go along with The AV Life (U.S.) are these three podcasts, and their hosts:
AV Jam (UK):
(Amy Redfearn, the show’s producer appears on this episode).
Higher Ed AV (U.S.):
Mostly AV (U.S.):
As we begin, the cage lowers…
And all assemble…
Top: Corey, Joe, Kev, Jason – Middle: Noel, Carrie, Amy, Michelle – Lower: Tim, Dayna (Carrie is on the phone)
There are of course the obligatory introductions (by podcast), and that well-placed banter. Listen to Corey’s conversation with the AV Jam people, and especially Amy (in her first ever podcast appearance ever). Joe goes right out of the gate (as usual) to promo the podcast, then the book and whatever else he’s got in his plugging arsenal. He’s already got the sound effect intro for it.
Dayna Baumann (who is the only guest without a podcast) and Kev talk about being a part of SCN’s The Nine, and what it means to them. Dayna also talks about heading up the AVIXA Women’s Council Group in NY Metro (with Gina Sansivero). Michelle and Carrie also participate in the AVIXA Women’s discussion. And of course, the banter (Kev y’know) and even “definition time” (which occurs throughout the podcast).
Then there’s a little business discussion (this show took place AM in the U.S.) as they talk about follow-up sales calls and what CRM they use. Tim’s still “old-school” at Rutgers. Joe talks about the enjoyment of working with the next generation every day. Informative, but you know it can’t all be serious with these people. Then it’s all about Kev time, and Michelle has a name for it. And of course, it’s all about the hashtags.
Then, after this, as the four podcasts engage in the cage (and pardon what Michelle, and Joe the instigator say) –
Did it turn into a battle royale?
Or a happy handshake session?
Each person gets to talk about their podcast and their perspective of it, along with one of those “real moments” on the show. Conversation here produces excellent reveals, some real moments in itself (at times almost indescribable) and deep thought (or as deep as it gets). Listen to Amy provide some real gems, including talking about content that’s not really necessary, and just how great the AV Jam guys are (umm…). There’s also AV Jam stick figure talk. Michelle had to leave to take care of an #AVFire. Joe talks about what he considers his most humbling moment, and how his podcast connects. More hashtags produced, and yes, a Joe Way rant. Priceless.
All also play trade show destinations, otherwise known as “next stop is where I say I’d like to go.”
Finally, a question for all who are left – if you could choose a song for your own show lead-in, what would it be?
No Firing Range on this one, there’s more than enough firing going on here.
Sit back, plug in, grab some popcorn and a cold one (or pint as it is) as we live…
The AV Life.
(Producer’s note: the AV Road House podcast will be making its return in June 2019. In fact, some of it may have already returned on this show).
