First up is an interview with Founder and CEO of MyDamnChannel, Rob Barnett. Adam mentions that Rob is the person who originally got him his radio show, and they talk about always being the #1 show in Vegas when it was on the air. They also talk about their relationship to Howard Stern, and being part of the Blogworld Key Note Address.
Adam talks with Rob about starting your own business as opposed to collecting unemployment. They discuss the early days of MyDamnChannel.com, and how new businesses build slowly. Adam mentions that he and Rob will be doing cross promotions for both their networks, and chats with Rob about how the advertising floodgates are just now beginning to open up.
Adam then sits down with Scott Monty, head of social media for Ford. Adam talks about the amazing advances in technology, compared to his own childhood. Scott also mentions how the digital era is resulting in new interests in the automotive industry. He talks about making cars that are adapting to the technology, and upcoming advancements like My Ford Touch voice commands.
Adam suggests that for a while, cars kind of flat-lined in technology, but now things are moving much faster. Adam is just waiting for the time when podcasts can make it practically into cars. Scott describes some of the mobile app links that are already available, and says that items typically seen in Luxury vehicles will soon be seen in some of the compact Ford models. Lastly they discuss the casting call sent out for “Focus Rally America,” an online interactive reality show.
Adam’s final interview for the day is with comedian Mark Malkoff. Mark recently set the Guinness World Record for most flights in a single month. They talk about the fear of flying, and Adam takes time to complain about shitty airplane food. Mark also discusses forcing himself to stay in a bathroom for 5 days with no internet, and the time he spent living in an IKEA.
