Engaged…With Paul Greenberg. Coming Soon to…Somewhere!!
After years in development (okay, months), thousand of feet of footage on the cutting room floor (none made the show – and my wife finally made me clean up the floor) and massive technological investment (that much is true), finally, in July (probably) Engaged…with Paul Greenberg comes to a digital screen near you – a room somewhere in your house to be exact.
What is it you ask? I’m still asking myself that so I can’t really tell you. However, I will tell you it is nothing like the format that you are used to if you watch or listen to most podcasts or live streams.
Here it is briefly:
Think Late Night Talk Show rather than Host/interviewee. Multi-segmented (4 segments), interludes, giveaways, not only business topics.
The theme that runs through this website runs through the show, “The Science of Business, the Art of Life, and Live from New York…”
The first two segments – What’s Up, Who’s Up are business focused. “What’s Up” might as well be the probably unfunny monologue by me (that would be Paul Greenberg) talking about the events of the week, the top 5 tech vendors in an area, the CRM Watchlist Eyes Always On You, etc. for about 10 minutes. The “Who’s Up?” segment is an interview with an industry person for some reason that seems to make sense that week – and if that person decides they want to use their last 5 or so minutes of the interview to play the guitar, do standup comedy or show family photos, hey, who are we to stop them?
We then move to the “Art of Life” part of the show. The third segment “Which Way is Up” is anything at all EXCEPT business focused. We will be talking history, art, literature, social good, lifestyle (meaning food and alcohol), sports, humor, rantings) depending on the interest from you, the audience as conveyed to me – and my mood that day. You will be able to broadly tell both the category and my mood by the music (one of six possibilities) that introduces the segment – e.g. slightly angry hip hop means a rant about someone or something is coming; a Dave Brubeck style jazz riff with the intro video means we may be talking about whiskey, restaurants, travel or pets – lifestyle. You get idea.
The 4th Segment “Looking Up…From the Rabbit Hole is a mix of business and the personal. Gear reviews, home studios, computer gear etc and the whys for that – for business and personal interests.
Even better, there is a house band. 🙂 Elements.cloud‘s Jane Blonde & The Goldfingers. (you can see their music here or on YouTube) will be playing at the opening of each show. See, I told you it was different.
Experimental. The initial channels that will be broadcast to are LinkedIn Live, Facebook Live, YouTube (as a channel – not a storage area), Twitter and…new one…Twitch. There will be corollary show related activity on Clubhouse, Twitter Spaces and, not kidding, Tiktok (that’s the scary one). Depending on how things go, Instagram and a few others are future possibilities.
We’re coming in July, though exactly when I can’t tell you yet. I thought we’d launch in May, then June and now, well…so, July. I would love for you to subscribe to the YouTube channel so that I can unlock some of the mobile tools I need to build the channel a bit stronger and so I can notify you about the upcoming episodes.
Gettin’ ready for here I come…. See you with EWPG in July!!
