Month and Months and this is what you give me...

What the fuck is going on peeps!!! It is a Friday night and I know that no one is reading these, so I am going to just leave a quick note to tell you all that I am so grateful that y’all listen to me ramble!!!! I know the show has taken on a life of its own and is always growing but damn it is impressive that a little microphone and a laptop could lead to so many people listening!!! Please share the show with people you know who may like what we talk about and leave me a note!!!

Getting Setup

What up followers of The Beard and The Bear Show! So 80% of our material to record the show and sounds like a bag of screaming cats is here and tested. I still need to a microphone for Jess, but well fuck they are expensive. I had hoped I would have some stuff for you to buy up so I could make some damn money off you people. Guess that will have to wait until the cash flows a little easier.. I recorded some very basic stuff today and did some editing. If my buddy would get our into and outro music recorded I would have some stuff for you all to listen to. Well just I just need to keep hammering on him. We didn't want to steal music off the internet as we believe in paying the artist for their efforts and as previously stated cash is tight right now. 

On a brighter note the recording of the vocals sounds pretty good even with my crappy microphone that I purchased. I truly hope someone other than my mom is reading this... but honestly I could give a shit if you don't. I wont stop until I have you under my spell and we have some good money coming through the door. 

Other than this peeps I ain't got much else to say. So for now CHEERS!!!

Learn something new.... Always!!!

So as I sit here in a bar waiting on some friends who want to advance their lives and make things better I thought it would be a good idea to post about it. 

Something I am always promoting in life it to always be learning. Always be looking for ways to advance yourself in life. 

I do this in many ways. I am always reading books, watching videos and taking online classes. I use Skill Share as well as software companies will often load tutorial videos on their websites on how to advance your skills with their software. I visit Adobe and Quickbooks all the time for this information. I also listen when smarter people than me talk about what they are reading or have read. I read books on how to advance my life skills as well as books on information that I value like economics. 

So there you have it. Always be learning something new and always be looking at ways to increase your skills. Things will always change and if you are not always learning you will be the one looking for that job that may not exist anymore. 

Cheers!

Getting the show started... And BEER!!!

Alright peeps, Chris here. I wanted to drop y'all a line on our blog page to get you started with what you can expect with the show. I also wanted to let you know about the show schedule so you know when you can start to expect the show to start. 

To start the show we will be talking about beer. Its a topic so many men love so we thought we would jump right in. My partner, Jess, will be coming from WA to Nashville for a convention about beer so what a better time to get in some talk about beer. We are hoping to do the show on location either at the convention or in a local brewery or pour house.  I have been working with a few already and maybe we will get a few in the bag while Jess is in town. 

On to the show release date. Jess and I are hoping to be able to post our first show on the 5th of May. That only gives me a few weeks to get all my shit in order.. Being that I am new to podcast production I want to make sure that we get it as close to right the first time as we can. All the equipment has been ordered and I will start test runs as well as some live videos on our Facebook page soon. 

So stick around and feel free to drop us a line to suggest topics for our future shows. 

*we are also looking for sponsors so if you or someone you know is looking for some promotion have then reach out me.
