Where does Ron’s Amazing Stories get its great stories? Where do we get our great guests? In this blog I will tell you all my secrets, well some of them anyway, of how we get our content. So sit back, put on your reading glasses and learn something new.
Where do the great stories come from?
We have talked about this before. The RAS would not be here today if not for the Internet Archive. It is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, and much more. If it exists or ever existed it will be on this archive. They are a profit free organization that has the goal of persevering our history. I love these guys!
Another service I use is tied to the internet archive. LibriVox.org audiobooks are free for anyone to listen to on their computers, iPods, other mobile devices, or even to burn a CD. They take materials in the public domain and read it to you. These guys have it all from Homer to Shakespeare, Asimov to Chekov. Their library is amazing!
Where do the great guests come from?
Some of the folks we interview on the show contact us directly using the main website, others I research and go after them myself. However, I would be remiss if I did not thank the people of Radio Guest Lists. They run a truly amazing service that allows podcasters like me to connect with folks who want to heard. Authors, Musicians, Comedians and many others use this service to promote their work. I am here to tell you that it works! If you are looking for experts or guests for a show, start here you can not go wrong.
That all I have for this Blog. I hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes look at Ron’s Amazing Stories.
