Keeping you out of Jail

This week on the podcast, Kenn interviews John Pierce, Esq. a longtime friend, gun rights activist and now attorney that is strong in support of the Second Amendment for his clients.

This Virginia based lawyer peels the legal “onion” of how to restore your gun rights if you have a felony. He answers the questions about what to do if you have a history in another state and are trying to clear your name so that you can exercise your right to self-defense. I am trying to keep you out of jail.

If you are going through a ugly divorce, involved in a domestic violence case, use a firearm at work, John also breaks down some stuff you should know about the Lautenberg Amendment.

How to defend yourself against false allegations.

Suicide awareness week is approaching and Michael and I talk about the signs that someone is considering it.

CP Time – Colored People’s Time is also discussed.

Michael J. Woodland reviews the JP4 Tactical Relic holster.

 

New fiction books takes you into the world of werewolves, the Blues and the supernatural. Check them out at http://Kennblanchard.com

This week is packed with information as I try to make sure this is the responsible gun owners podcast.

My Biggest Podcast Movement Lessons

Eric Rosenberg and Kenn Blanchard

I’ve been podcasting since 2007. The Black Man With A Gun website has been around since 2000. I know 999 things that don’t work. I am still at it. Podcasting still is an awesome medium for marketing even if the firearms industry doesn’t know it yet as a whole. It won’t replace terrestrial radio but has its own space.  It has a long tail.  I love it.

The Black Man With A Gun Show provides a connection to the people I know and would hang out with if they lived next door, around the world. We know each other. I love the people in the gun community.

So before hanging up my microphone, (which I was considering) I decided to go to the largest podcast convention for content creators, movers and shakers to better my craft. My wife still doesn’t understand that I have almost 2,000,000 downloads in a niche. Nor exactly what a podcast is but it’s OK. She’s not the only one. Podcasting itself is less than 20 years old. I went to the 2018 Podcast Movement in Philadelphia. Here are some of my biggest Podcast Movement lessons.

The event started for me with an Ignite speech. It was a chance for me to deliver a five minute talk with (20) PowerPoint slides to showcase my gift of public speaking. I’ve been speaking for 20 years and pretty comfortable on stage. Although this crowd was not part of the gun community per se, communication is still key. I realized during this conference that maybe one of the things I could do to help others is to show how to be better on stage.

The next three days were full of presentations, media exhibits and meeting people. The most important thing was the development of those new relationships, and connecting with like-minded people from around the world. I got to talk to a handful of folks that are changing the world through their content creation.

I got a chance to ask the pros what worked in their markets. What was selling and what was not.

There were probably 1800 people there or more.  All of us had something in common. We had community. We had family. We have something to say.

It was an expensive week, but I think it was worth it. I’m going to spend more time making my show better for my community. Going to do more of what you like. I’m going to be more purposeful in my content. And continue to lead.

I met podcasters like  Entrepreneur On Fire, John Lee Dumas. I got to hang out with John Dennis and Chris Krimitsos.  Really nice guys that are like family to me.

 

 

 

 

 

I got a selfie with the lovable Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income.  Pat gave the Key note speech and even brought his son into the act (literally).  Nice.

 

 

We celebrated a Hall of Fame moment with my buddy Dave Jackson from the School of Podcasting.  He was actually inducted into the Podcasters Hall of Fame that week.

I got the opportunity to speak to podcast editor great, Steve Stewart. And a boatload of positive people like Monica Rivera, from You Wanna Do What podcast.  It was a great week.

 

 

Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.

I’m on it.

Podcast Movement 2018

I’m going to Podcast Movement in Philadelphia, PA. It’s a big deal if you are into podcasting, and creating content for others online. http://podcastmovement.com

Podcast movement 2018 is THE ultimate gathering spot for anyone interested in or involved with podcasting and the podcast industry.

Philadelphia Marriott Downtown in historical Downtown Philly Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in their choice of over 80 breakout sessions and panels, including the Technical Track, Creations Track, Marketing Track, and an Industry Track.

The goal of Podcast Movement is to bring together and educate active and aspiring podcasters, and to grow the podcast community and industry as a whole. We do this through educational and informative breakout sessions and panels spread across six tracks, enlightening and encouraging keynote presentations, and fun networking events and parties. With over 3,000 attendees joining us over the last five years from nearly 30 different countries (and growing), we are excited to continue the mission of Podcast Movement for many years to come.

The Podcast Movement is for anyone currently involved with, or looking to get into, podcasting and the podcast industry. With over 300 speakers and panelists participating in over 100 different sessions for three full days’ worth of sessions and activities for active and aspiring podcasters.

They will be providing basic technical sessions regarding equipment, software, and editing, to learning the best way to craft a story. If you’re experienced, they know even the greats recognize things they need to improve on, so they’re bringing in the best podcasters and industry professionals to help you take things up a notch. And if you’re looking to refine your production, or looking for new ways to monetize, they’ll have dozens of sessions.

For those who have been doing this awhile like me, the Podcast Movement evolution will feature a large selection of sessions and panels geared towards “behind the scenes teams” with industry professionals. The most successful networks, ad sellers and buyers, statistic providers, and everything in between will be sharing what has been working (and what hasn’t) in the past year, and what they are doing for the future.

My goals are simple. I…

hope to gain (1) new friend.
hope to see old friends.
hope to learn (3) new things, including strategies, techniques and best practices of producing, editing, and sharing content.

hope to make a great first impression with someone who can help me go to the next level of my journey.

It’s going to be nice to be around people that understand what an RSS feed, wave file, royalty free music, downloads, uploads, Heil PR40, Mixer, blubrry, and libsyn are.

I hope to encourage someone else on their journey. If there is anything you want me to pick up, learn or share with you let me know.

I will be presenting a five minute briefing, Monday evening called Ignite with nine other folks chosen to “spark” ideas, enthusiasm, etc. Pray for me to succeed.
