It Is Time For A Fixer Upper Podcast
As you may know from reading my earlier blog posts, I have become a BIG admirer of The HGTV show Fixer Upper, a devoted or quite possibly an obsessed fan. No worries guys, I am just a friendly 61 year old GiGi ready to talk decorating.
I think the talented Chip and Joanna Gaines do a great job on the charming homes they remodel, and a wonderful job of producing a creative TV Show. Plus, I particularly like the good wholesome, family oriented vibes I get from this inspiring couple. And of course, I love viewing any pretty decorating styles, which Fixer Upper is literally chocked full of creative design ideas. I guess I need to take notes like when I watch Dr. Oz, ugh! As my daughters would say Mom… TMI. (too much information)
You may also know from my earlier blogs, my husband Gary is a super techie guy. I think the term Geek may be more appropriate. Amazingly enough he is the one ready to jump feet first in the “new” Fixer Upper Podcast. I think this sounds like a really fun thing we can do together as a couple! I do think Chip and Joanna would give a thumbs up for this family fun activity. Heck, who wouldn't want to be part of their family with farm animals, chocolate chip cookies, trampolines, gardening and so much more fun kid/adult stuff. This show is about as All-American as baseball and apple pie, oh wait they do that too! Finally, I was so encouraged for some television programming Rated G, refreshing! But, Chip pulling his shirt up doesn't count, LOL!!
My husband started podcasting back in 2004, when podcasting was first invented. He was probably one of the first 100 podcasters on the planet. Gary is so much into podcasting that he produces several podcasts under his business company PodcastRepairman.com. Trust me guys this is about the only repair around our house he does, hehe! Good thing he is fun because my honey do lists is always full. They say patience is a virtue, right? Well I should win the blue ribbon for that.
As we were out for our evening walk with our weenie dog, we were discussing the HGTV Fixer Upper show and he asked me about their podcast. Of course, not being super techie, I told him I had NO idea if there was even a podcast for the TV show. So, low and behold Gary looked around and to our delight there was not one!! Yippee…. I am so delighted he wants to create one to share with our subscribers. So tell your friends to click subscribe now on interiordecorate.com as we will update you there to begin with.
Well, not to my surprise, that got the hubby going, (sometimes known as my 8 year old). He decided that together we would create a Fixer Upper Fan Podcast. It seems that we will watch every episode together live (Yea, not football) and then immediately after the show is over record a podcast about our thoughts and opinions right in the comfort of our home. You can bet they will differ, even though we have been married 32 years. They say opposites attract, right? Look out folks, sparks could fly!
The Fixer Upper Podcast will be a fan based podcast only and in no way considered the official podcast. The podcast will not be endorsed or associated with HGTV Fixer Upper TV Show, or the Gaines. Unless, I get a call from Chip or Joanna to sign on the dotted line, haha, a girl can dream big right?
This podcast will simply be a fun informative and possibly whimsical podcast for fans of the show to hear our thoughts and share our love for the show. And ohhhh we do love what they do!! Seriously, how in the world do they stay within budget, hmmm could be a good question. I have so many buzzing in my head.
Gary says we will even have a telephone call in line so fans of the show can call in their thoughts or questions about the episode. Oh my, that sounds like it could get very entertaining. I don't have a number for that yet, but it sounds very very cool. Yup, Gary is a cool guy and I am quite the lucky one, awww mush mush! Hopeless romantic here!
Gary has quite a few friends that produce unofficial podcasts for TV shows, and it turns out that the networks have ended up working with many of those podcasters. They see it as a great marketing tool for extra promotions of a TV show. For some, networks have even provided interview opportunities with characters/hosts of the TV shows. More on that later! That would be awesome if we could get Joanna or Chip to make an occasional appearance on our show. My little secret, I do dream of meeting those two cuties in person some day! Don't they seem like they could be everyone's best friend? I wonder how that compelling charisma is achieved? God given, I am guessing. Total rock stars in my book.
Gary has created a website for the show at http://FixerUpperPodcast.com
He has also create a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/FixerUpperPodcast. You need to join the Facebook Groups since that will be the place to get involved and make comments that will appear on the podcast.
We should record our first episode in the next week or so. The first episode will be an introduction type show.
That is really all I know for now but I will definitely update you when we get it all ironed out and close to our first podcast episode of the new 2016 season Fixer Upper. I am so happily anticipating our new adventure I can hardly sleep! Here's hoping the season is just around the corner or I may need some fresh cucumbers for my eyes, yikes!
Wish me luck 🙂
