Dear listener and reader! Ever heard of chonilla Network? If not, let me fill you in. It's a podcast network and digital media collective that has been committed to bringing you laugh-out-loud, thought-provoking, and educational content since 2010. But there's more to the story than just microphones and sound bytes, we are also running a digital community. We've been hustling hard, mostly using our own funds to run this venture. Intrigued? Stick around, as we've got a tale to tell.
The Journey from 2010 to Now
Ten-plus years ago, we started this journey with no guarantee of success or financial backing. It was all about passion.
Evolution Over Time
The times changed, and so did we. podcasts became a mainstream medium, and our little project started garnering attention.
Here we are in 2023, expanding our horizons, taking on more roles, and still bankrolling this ourselves. It's been one heck of a ride.
Why Content Creation is Costly
You see, a good microphone isn't cheap. Neither is a decent soundboard or acoustic foam.
Oh, and don't get me started on the software. Adobe Audition, anyone?
And here's the kicker: for every hour spent recording, we clock in a hundred hours doing…well, everything else.
The Invisible Labor: Behind the Scenes
Ever thought about what goes into brainstorming a podcast episode? It's no small feat, I assure you.
Editing, cutting, balancing—the invisible chores that make a podcast what it is.
E-mails, networking, planning. Oh, my! The tasks are endless.
The Additional Hats: Podcast Coaching
To sustain ourselves and the network, we ventured into podcast coaching. Why? Because knowledge should be shared, and hey, it helps pay the bills.
Quality Over Quantity: The Content Mantra
Laugh. Think. Learn. If our content makes you do all three, we've hit the jackpot. And trust me, that's the goal every single time.
Diverse Content: Not Just ChoNilla
We're not just about our podcast. We've been supporting other awesome shows like Uncolonized, Interracial Jawn, and even platforms for black canadian content creators. Variety is the spice of life, right?
The Future Goals
What's next? More shows, more collaborations, and hopefully, a whole lot more of you tuning in.
Why Your Support Matters
Your donations don't just keep us afloat; they help us soar to new heights.
How to Support
For as little as $10, you can be our superhero. But don't worry, if cash is tight, sharing our content is invaluable too.
