This post is literally a shower thought at this stage. Nothing more, nothing less.
As some of you know I run cryptofireside.com which is a blog I host under the Medium CMS frame. I speak to a lot of people from all over the world regularly and while it appears as though there are 31 interviews there. I have 4-5 more in the work and dozens more that for whatever reason the interview never worked out, things changed, projects changed, people went walkabout whatever.
The point is, I chat, email, call and zoom with lots of folks regularly. I call these fireside chats.
I frequently use the voice message option in my chat apps and it works great. I can put an idea or comms into a minute-long audio which would take me much longer to formulate in text. Especially if it is a new person I am introducing myself to and they don’t yet know me and have to type everything up.
Now take this concept. And think about Broadcasting.
YouTube does video, and TikTok does mini videos.
WordPress does articles and Twitter does mini articles.
Spotify does podcasts but nobody does mini podcasts…not that I have found anyway.
Why isn’t there a mini version?
From my POV I don’t like video as a content producer, it is not my cup of tea because it takes some hardware and software and well you have to wear pants if I am being honest. But then there is TikTok which you can just do on your phone, hit record, boom, you are done. If you want, you add some text and audio from with the app and boom done again. Broadcast all over the web in minutes.
I used to host a podcast too and part of the issue which is why I stopped, I’m strapped for time, I did not like that I needed a mic, headphones, recording software, then I needed to upload, RSS, tweet it out. It all took so long.
If there was a mini podcasting app to broadcast mini voice messages it could be used to communicate ideas, discuss, debate, shower thoughts, ideas, even entertain, jokes, music, songs. The sky is the limit.
What do you all think?
If anyone wants to work on this idea with me, hit me up.
I am not a developer as everyone here knows but Im not stupid either.
I have some money being released this year and have some funds I could place into an idea like this but we’d need a team too put together. This does not have to be related to SAFE or it can be.
I’ll finish off the same way that I started. This is just a showerthought at the time of writing, nothing more, nothing less. But if you are reading and interested in it being potentially more than shower thought, reach out, you never know.
