Not all amateur radio enthusiasts are old guys. This is obviously a statement of fact, but it took a listener to the podcast to write in and remind us. Co-host, Eric Klein apologizes for error.
Paul Riismandel attended a local marketing conference as part of his day job and was reminded just how small the world of podcasting still is in 2016. Among the 20 or so people Paul talked to at the conference he estimates that more than half did not listen to podcasts, although many of them had listened to one podcast or another at some point in the past.
Being reminded that the world of podcasting is still so small led Paul to ask for listener feedback on the following questions:
1) What are some of the other podcasts you listen to, especially if these other podcasts are niche?
2) Do your friends and family listen to podcasts?
3) Is there a niche podcast that you wish existed? (Paul’s would be about high end stereo equipment)

You can support the work that goes into Radio Survivor in two ways:
- The American Radio Relay League, ARRL is a noncommercial organization of radio amateurs online at www.arrl.org
- The “Ham Radio Store” that Paul and Eric have only seen from the road, but plan to visit someday is called Ham Radio Outlet.
- A brief promo doc about the very same store location that has tempted the Radio Survivor hosts with their clear and highly visible signage:
- The episode of Radio Survivor in which the interview of President Obama on the WTF podcast is discussed
- The episode of Radio Survivor podcast in which we take a dive into the Horror Podcast genre.
- Briefly mentioned on the podcast: A popular youtube host, PewDiePie, created paid content for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in the form of a video game review without clearly and loudly disclaiming the relationship. What does this mean for podcasters who’d like to make money from their work? That’s is a question worthy of further discussion. CNET: Warner Bros. settles with FTC for not disclosing it paid PewDiePie, YouTubers
- Paul on Amazon’s top selling record player that will ruin your vinyl collection.
