A few months back I was researching an upcoming interview with writer Keith R.A. DeCandido. And in doing my research, I found out DeCandido was involved with a pop cultue podcast, The Chronic Rift. As a podcast, the show is only a year old, but it’s beginnings date back to the early 1990s (with a public access TV show about “fantasy, science fiction, and other genres.”) After downloading a few episodes for my Ipod and immensely enjoying them, I contacted the original creator/podcast producer John Drew and email interviewed him about the show. The Chronic Rift recently joined Mevio (“an online video and audio network for episodic entertainment”), so we get to discuss that development among other engaging topics.
Tim O’Shea: How did the Mevio deal come about?
John Drew: Well, they approached us saying that they liked what they heard and wanted to know if we were interested. I’d heard of Mevio, but I always thought they were more focused on their video content as that’s what you see when you first visit the website. Upon further examination, I saw everything they had to offer in the form of file space and bandwidth; it really seemed like a no-brainer. We haven’t begun any actual advertising on the show yet as we’re still waiting for advertiser approval of our overall show (They don’t dictate content, but they get first refusal of the overall show.), but the advertisers are major brand names and the ones I’ve asked to work with will mesh nicely with the show.
