So, yesterday, I got notified by iHeart that the Offlimits Show was picked up to be carried on their network.
Some people feel this is no big deal, but knowing that my show will now be accessible by millions means reaching that many more people, even if it’s just a few more listeners than before.
When I started this show in 2010, I started it as a way to simply express my views on various issues that I was passionate about. It was a hobby, and it still is. I don’t expect to ever be a national sensation or famous nor do I have much interest in such a prospect. However, I feel that one person’s voice can make an impact upon society, even if just one listener at a time, it can change lives and help people.
I have already seen how my show and my voice has helped many listeners over the years. From the young lesbian girl afraid to come out to her parents, to a gay college student needing guidance with coming out to his family and subsequently his boyfriend’s coming out to his highly bigoted and evangelical christian family, and standing up to endless homophobic and racial attacks has inspired listeners to do the same for themselves, gay or not. The list goes on but I don’t want to brag. I do want to illustrate, however, that even a little show like mine can have meaning not just to the host but to how people live their lives. And for that, I am thankful.
I will continue to do the Offlimits show for years to come I am sure because of the joy I get and the entertainment it seems to give to people as well.
In the coming months, you will begin to hear and see higher production value in my show to coincide with my fancy new website, and a commitment to producing a Sirus-worthy radio show that you will want to participate in, tell your friends about and share on social media. Also, more elaborate give aways and even bigger celebrity guests, new stories about people’s lives and interviews that will keep you on the edge of your seat – and of course music. 🙂
So stay tuned, and comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, on twitter or on Facebook – follow me on both if you aren’t already. Trust me, you’re going to want to be alerted when the big shows next year are coming.
Thanks for reading, thanks for listening and thanks for giving a shit about what I think. 🙂
