The Tiny r(E)volution podcast has really become popular and it becoming more and more fun with each show. We currently have just under 20 subscribers through the BlogTalkRadio platform and right at 70 subscribers via iTunes podcast library. The really amazing number though is that our shows have garnered some 1233 listens. That is mind boggling and proves that the tiny house community wants to talk about and hear about life in the tiny house / small house world.
Our schedule at this point is that we air twice a week; Tuesdays and Thursdays. Both shows are at 2:30pm EST and last for :30 minutes. The Tuesday show is dedicated just to interviews and we welcome a new guest each Tuesday. Thursdays are a more open format allowing for some great conversation including items like “Reading Passage,” “One-Minute Tip,” “On the Blogosphere,” and “What’s r(E)volving?”
We are also very fortunate in that we offer a live chat simultaneously with the show. In fact, beginning at 2:15pm EST the chatroom opens up and allows for live Q&A, random conversation, and just general fun. This past week we began experimenting with using Google Hangouts to chat while the show runs. It is a smoother platform, works well with both PCs and mobile units, and is available to anyone with a valid email address. No java plugins or flash timeouts, etc. As for now we are going to continue with Hangouts and will be posting the link at 2pm EST on the Facebook page so that everyone can join in!
More to the point though I am pleased to announce that this Tuesday (read: tomorrow!) we will be joined by Laura M. LaVoie – a freelance writer and blogger living in a 120 Square Foot Cabin with her partner, Matt, and their Sphynx cat, Piglet.
Laura and Matt built the tiny house with their own hands after researching several types of alternative building techniques including Cordwood Masonry and Earthships. They decided on a small house because the Tiny House Movement matched their values and lifestyle perfectly. They began building the house in the mountains of North Carolina in 2009 and construction took three years as they lived and worked in Atlanta and would travel and build on weekends. Now Laura, Matt, and Piglet live and work in the tiny house full time and run the blog Life in 120 Square Feet. Subsequently, Laura is also a featured writer on the blog Tiny House Talk, is a Dragon*Con alumni, and a micro brew afficianado! The conversation is going to be one you won’t want to miss!
Join us tomorrow on BlogTalkRadio!
