It’s a beautiful Monday, isn’t it?
In case you didn’t know, I started Afdtechtalk in 2016. Ever since, my team and I have put out a lot of content in the form of articles, infographics and tweets, some of which have been featured on other tech websites and The Daily Graphic.
As an organically growing start-up, we’ve had in mind to explore other forms of creating content such as video and podcasts. I actually purchased the setup for the podcast over 12 months ago but never got to using them. I even had Adu Boahene, one of my favorite team members draft up a solid plan around how we will venture into podcasting.But for some strange reason (mainly laziness), we never got around to doing it.
About five weeks ago, Adu Boahene, Edudzi and I had an interesting discussion on Twitter. That was my aha! moment. I was like “Wow, what if the world could listen to our conversations and opinions? I think it’ll be a great idea!” So I decided to do that!
We’ve put out a pilot podcast or recording on our Anchor profile. It is literally just a couple of friends — tech enthusiasts, not experts — talking about what they think about smartphones of 2019. For now, we want our podcast to take an unusual format. There will no real anchor or moderator. We will have a fair idea of what we want to talk about and just wing it. No one will wait for their turn to speak, we will cut in, and chip in and say out funny things out loud as someone is making their submission. Occasionally, we will have guests on the show. Hopefully, we get some of the seasoned tech experts in Ghana and beyond to chat with us.
We don’t know if this will work or not but one thing is for sure: We will evolve as time goes on, but for now, this is it!
