In favor of sips with the announcement. Without it you just get dead air.

Came to post exactly this. The sips fit right in with the tone of the podcast (unedited goodness), and without the announcement there is just awkward dead air.

Yes getting a customer to make the buying decision once but pay every month is on par with the invention of poker chips as fast as marketing genius goes. The marketers are fing smart !!

Another way to monetize how about a Sessions Exec Producer T-Shirt design priced at 75 or 100 bucks a shirt? Or 2k - a poker story gold member design or some such?

It would be voluntary and exclusive for your core supporters seems win win to me.

yes



Does anyone listen to the pods through the Google Podcasts app? I have absolutely no idea how to leave a review. For how much the app loves spamming me with requests to review the app, they sure make it hard to review the content I listen to on it.

Idem for the liking the authenticity of the sips moment.

No, but I had the same issue on libsyn.com where I listen to it ; I had to go on itunes/apple to leave a review

I don't recall ever owning a T-shirt that fit better or was made from better material than the one I just got from Poker Rags. I've worn a lot of tees in my years. Buy one.

#TeamSip

Yes, sip. Yes, announce sip. But keep in mind it is likely to become annoying as an extended, always commented on, "thing." Nike that ****er: Just Do It.

#Funding

The Patreon model is the way to go. The reason is that you have a classic limited audience: it is highly unlikely that _Sessions_ is ever popular outside of a 2+2ish crowd (it could be, but it would take such change as to [a] perhaps be unenjoyable for you and [b] be a bit unrecognizable). That's fine--it's actually an incredibly *good* situation, as you only need to cater to the audience you are already catering to.

You set up a page for it, and that's cool, just keep in mind the tradeoff you're making: Patreon takes a piece, so yeah, there's that; on the other hand, they also ensure that there is a huge amount of flexibility in terms of accepting different kinds of payment, different kinds of subscription models, etc. It's up to you which works better, but if the obstacle is just navigating and grokking Patreon, I'm sure that some of the techier of the audience here (including me) would be willing to help out.

#New Structure

I get the reason to move away from the BestPlay/WorstPlay. AND, I would not want you to lose the focus on mentioning those things, even if they are now wrapped in the notes. There are 2 reasons for this: (1) I think it is really good for us as poker players to acknowledge, explore, and think about our worst plays. (2) I think it is really good for us as humas to ackowledge, explore, and think about where we need to improve and where we did well. Both sides of the see-saw matter: ignore one, and we turn into arrogant pricks; ignore the other and lose clarity in our self-perception.

All that said, I like the proposed new rhythm. I would be interested, if you predictably did 2 part shows where the 1st part was the lead and the 2nd part the notes, whether you would see a difference in your download/listen stats between the 2.

If you're going to have a patreon, make it now - they're changing the fee structure soon and only old accounts will get the current rate
