I was using defcon 1 in a proprietary way meaning "lowest-effort level of garnering engagement," not in the colloquial way meaning war.Defcon 1 means war. You don’t promote it because you don’t want war on the podcast.That's JUST a name I've given to my effort...it doesn't have to be anything at all.That wasn’t what I was asking.Mine, I just articulated that. I've purposely avoided what I know gets us more engagement. I'll give it a few more shots b4 peacing out.Whose fault is it that it’s defcon 1?Thats just cuz defcon 1.
Defcon 1.5 or 2, we'd get callers. I'm just not there yet. I was asked by a lot of people to bring this thing back and finally did...but this time I tried the approach of posting it strictly in its correct forum as opposed to getting a buzz by warring with haters and posting it in the Flame Zone. Seems like warring with haters and then just being ourselves on air was a better remedy. More engagement I guess, even though it's not really preferred that way, we did get anywhere between 4 and 15 callers an episode.
Ive got about 3 episodes left in me for USMB before we scrap it here and take it to real life friends, fam and advertising. When we do that, we unfortunately wont be able to let most usmb know because real lives = private, from here. This isnt about "success," its about hanging for a couple hrs a week for fun.
We also get a lot of "dang, i didnt know!" so I was going to try alerting ppl but I wanted their consent first but ... nobody read the OP.
Why does it have to be defcon 1?
I don't even know what war on the podcast means. We've had many charged debates on there in the past, it's never been an issue.
