For years, I have been told that AirlineReporter needs to do their own podcast. Sigh. Why? I just couldnâ€™t imagine adding on something else. Having to get guests, come up with scripts, and the worst part — editing the audio! I have often asked our writers if they might have an interest, but no takers. Well, I am finally giving in and I have created our very first podcast, called Plane Talking with Mom. So what makes this podcast different?
#1 I talk about airplanes with my mom — 100% exclusive. No one else has my mom talking about planes.
#2 I am not editing crap (and you can tell). You get everything. All the â€œumsâ€ and â€œuhs,â€ the mess ups.
#3 My mom doesnâ€™t even like airplanes. So many podcasts have experts or at least people who are interested in talking about the topic. Booooooring. Hear directly from a person who might care the least, and doesn’t even like to fly.
Some reviews are already in…
“It was interesting… at least you and your mom had a nice time” – My Wife
“(It’s) purrr (fect)” – My Cat (aka #A380cat)
“What… I… listened to is… the… nice… podcast… will… listen… again” – My Friend Nick
“The combination of airplanes, birds, and moms is a real winner. A++” – David P Brown
Give it a listen… it is the best podcast we have ever done!!! Oh yea, it is not actually up at any of the places you normally listen to podcasts, so you just have to listen to it via our site.
So… what do you think (remember my mom will be reading the comments too)? But before you make any comment, make sure you listen to the end…
Building an empire includes top hats and private 737s
You might have noticed that after some down period (around two years), things have been picking back up again at AirlineReporter in 2019 (well, other than the last week or so with our servers). We are publishing more stories and being more active on social media. We have a renewed motivation and vision that goes beyond what you have seen on our pages for the last decade or so.
I am proud to announce that on top of still bringing you the awesome airline content you have come to expect, our brand will be expanding into some new frontiers. Over the years I have found that those who have an interest in airplanes also share similar passions with other transport related things. Our research has also found a number of other categories that you, our readers, want covered. Instead of putting everything on AirlineReporter, we have decided to create what I am calling the “Reporter Empire” where we have different sites that will cover the different niche topics. I want to take a sneak peak of what you can expect in coming in the next year or so. Of course I would love to get your feedback!
