Thread: New podcast interviewing working mermaids and entertainment professionals

    New podcast interviewing working mermaids and entertainment professionals

    I posted this in the internet forum also, but we just started a new podcast where we focus on stories from working mermaids and entertainers. Our first episode is out where we talk about who we are and our story. We also hope to have some episodes focused on specific business pain points and common questions getting started.

    My wife and I just finished our third year doing mermaiding. I go as her pirate helper. We've done a dozen or so conventions and comicons, lots of parties, and in two weeks we're actually going to be helping someone with an elaborate wedding proposal if you can believe it. We really enjoy doing it, and wanted to give back in some way. We've met so many wonderful mermaids along the way and wanted to share their stories. We've already recorded two more interviews and have about five more scheduled. There'll be a new episode every Monday.

    The way I describe it is diving into the world of people who dress up for fun, entertainment, and profit. I hope you guys like it. Any feedback is appreciated. If you'd like to be interviewed on the podcast let me know.

    That was amusing to listen to and it did inspire me to look at your Facebook page. The kids all look like they were having a blast! Good luck to you in this new venture.

    Thank you, the next episode is pretty funny at times. The one after that a little heartbreaking at times. It's amazing the stories behind peoples lives, their challenges, and what they've overcome.

    I can imagine. We all fall into this business for one reason or another and everyone always has a unique story to bring to the table. That's been my experience when I talk to mermen, mermaids, fairies, vampires, witches etc. and all the others who do one form of cosplay or another. I doubt you'll get bored.

    Full episode 2, and out of all the episodes I've posted this is definitely the funniest. Of the two.

    Episode 3, we interviewed Mermaid Odette. She's been a working mermaid in Tucson, Arizona for 10 years now. Her story is quite the adventure. https://merfaire.com/2018/10/08/epis...tte-interview/

    We met her last year when we did Return of the Mermaid down in Tucson. It's amazing what she's done, she's so creative.

    That was our real intention with all this. There are so many people out there doing their thing, we wanted to share their stories and help encourage others.

    We're going to be streaming the podcast live as we film it today in about 20 minutes. You can watch live on the Youtube channel. Shortly after that it should appear on the normal podcasting channels. Today we're talking about mer-handlers, what they can do for you, and our funniest or cringiest mer-handler moments.

    This week we went to the Tucson Comicon and interviewed the Tucson Dread Fleet. The video and audio were recorded from the Cosplay, and you can see quite a few characters pop up in the background.

    I sent you a private message on here about your interview, but if there's an easier way to chat, over facebook messenger, or Whatsapp, we can use that.
