Web Content Contributor
For this article, I want to dive into some other content we create here for the station. As a web content contributor as well as podcast producer, segment producer and manager of the podcast & segment team, I want to display some of the content we create on that side.
For the first podcast I want to highlight, I am choosing:
Good Bad Movies with hosts Adam Snydar and Adrian Lopez
This show is chock-full of wonderful tidbits about some of the most random movies I have never heard of, all of which are so bad that it makes them good. Adam and Adrian create a lively show where they find some of the worst movies out there and then offer their critique on those movies.
One of my favorites was Leprechaun in the Hood which was so cheesy that it is just cringe-worthy. The show is currently in its 26th episode and counting! Check out Adam and Adrian’s page here to listen to some really great content, analysis and funny commentary.
For the second podcast, a new one that was created this last semester is:
Behind the Sounds with Ryan Dupre
Ryan takes his listeners through an experience of how songs are created. From the different melodies, instruments and varieties of genres, he dissects any genre he is discussing and gives his listeners and a wonderful experience into the sounds. Check out this brand new edition to the KTSW family here.
The next podcast in line I want to highlight is…
Player’s Circle by Josiah Blackwood A.K.A. Jo $upreme
Josiah dives into topics of the day which can include sports, politics and celebrities. So far his show has dived into players such as Tom Brady, Jordan and then into UFC fighters such as Conor MacGregor, Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yahn. Come kick it with Josiah in the Player’s Circle and let him keep you up to date.
I work on the next two podcasts. The first one being…
History of the Hill Country by Calvin Miller
I am not a fan of marketing myself but it does get to a point where I at least have to inform people. In History of the Hill Country, I go around the Hill Country region exploring different cities and towns while giving the listener a history of the area.
I was approached to make this show for KTSW, and it has been a fun research experience. My last episode was about San Marcos and there are more to come. If you want to know more about the Hill Country, check it out here.
Roundtable by Tiger Shi and Calvin Miller
Tiger Shi, who is also a Web Content Contributor, and I produce a bi-weekly show called “Roundtable with Calvin and Tiger.” We talk about social, political and economic issues while having guests on our show. We love our guests and our listeners, so if you ever want to hop on and discuss what we are talking about, reach out to us! Listen to our show here.
Moving onto segments that are currently produced for KTSW. Currently, there are two, with a 3rd mini-series releasing its first episode within a week.
The first segment I want to focus on is…
Curious Cravings by Shack Khouza
Shack takes his listeners on a journey through different food spots through San Marcos, the Hill Country and even the Austin area. If you ever want to learn about some new spots, what they offer and what is good, check out Shack’s segment, “Curious Cravings.”
The episodes are less than 10 minutes and get to the heart of the matter. This show is brand new to KTSW and does not show signs of slowing down. Check out Shack’s page here.
The next segment is created by yours truly and that is…
I have been producing this show for almost a year now and have been loving it. I go into topics such as cryptocurrencies, stocks, tariffs, inflation, taxes, oil, socialism, capitalism, communism, the free market and so on. All the episodes are 7 minutes or less and I get straight to the point while providing non-biased factual information with very little of my own opinion inserted into the content.
If you are ever interested in learning about certain topics, check out what I have produced here, or ask me to create a topic you would like to hear.
Lastly, a new show is in the works with our own Tiger Shi and Devon Bates. The show will run for 5 episodes and will cover local news in the San Marcos area. TSDB news will air its first episode within a week and will be posted on the blog! Tune in!
We here at KTSW really try to produce great content for our listeners and if you ever have any feedback for us, please reach out!
We want to hear from our viewers, readers and listeners any chance we get.
