040: Putting our corporate hats on

In this episode we take a moment to be introspective and set ourselves some goals for the podcast for the next three months. Listen along, and hold us accountable!

  1. Increase our social presence by posting regular content, posting snippets of the show, and setting up an Instagram account.
  2. Grow the brand by getting some stickers printed, running Twitch streams, and reaching out to other podcasts to guest on.
  3. Get better at podcasting by sharing the editing, and producing a short show (coming soon!) to accompany the main show.
