Most of you know that I do the weekly podcast COMIC NEWS INSIDER. I've worked my patootie off for 7 years on it and continue to do so. So pardon me if it gets me a bit miffed when people can't seem to get the name right. We've made a name for ourselves and people know our show all over the world. Yet, friends, fellow podcasters/new media folks, journalists, bloggers, etc. will CONSTANTLY get it wrong. It's not Comic Book Insider. It's not ComicS News Insider. It's not Comic News Inside. It's not Comic Nudes Inside Her. It's COMIC NEWS INSIDER.
It's just really lazy when people get it wrong in an article or email or especially when I get PR and they don't even know the right name. Especially when it's so easy to quickly look up. But what really sucks, is that I'm SO goddamn supportive of my friends and their podcasts/blogs/vlogs/etc. I'd be GUTTED if I got theirs wrong and make every effort to correct and make up for it. I've had friends...FRIENDS, get the name wrong on their sites/shows/etc.
Sure, a lot of my friends don't listen to the podcast. It's not for them. So when they casually bring it up or introduce me to a friend and say, "He does this podcast called..." and get it wrong, well, that's something different. They don't listen to it and aren't that familiar. It's the ones that either should know just because we're in the same circles media-wise or nerd-wise or whatnot.
So, please, my lovelies. Get it right. COMIC NEWS INSIDER. If you can't remember, just put it in a rhyme. Atomic Booze n' Cider. Actually, that's a great name for a new podcast! Of course, you'll probably get that wrong too.
