New year, new Positive Cynicism. On this edition, @chadsmart and Travis (@PopCultIQ) Yates take on a random assortment of topics. The show starts with a tribute to legendary wrestling announcer “Mean” Gene Okerlund. From there, Chad and Travis “spin the wheel to make the deal.” Topics are chosen at random. Neither knows what topics are on the wheel so each spins provides a surprise.
What if you had a podcast and no one listened? How well do you know your “friends” on Facebook? In this week’s episode, Chad examines the love-hate relationship he has with social media. On one hand, social media is a necessary tool to build a brand. On the other hand, social media has become a wasteland for one sided non-conversation postings. Is it possible for the two sides to co-exist? Listen and find out. Plus, the random question of the week looks to the future.
