5-30-2017 Power Hour

May 30, 2017

Bob Chmiel and Mike Frank discuss conference, schedule, recruiting, leadership, responsibility and the scout team. 

Also, as you know, Bob Chmiel has been joining the show recently and has been a big hit with our listeners. We'd like to make that a more permanent thing. He and I have had a lot of recent discussions, and we have some great ideas for the show moving forward. We may even potentially add a third host, former player, who we agree will also add a lot to the show. 

Our intention is improve what we feel is already the best ND podcast out there. The show would have more interviews with former players, more expert discussion, potential live remotes from various places around South Bend, etc. 

In order to do that, I need to raise some money to pay these people for their time. I'm hoping the increase in quality will increase listenership, which will then allow us to get considerable advertising. We're close to a threshold in downloads that would allow that, but we have to surpass that number with some consistency.

So, we set up a Patreon account. Many, many podcasts do this as a way to monetize their show. It's just a simple donation with a few perks. It's a monthly donation so you'd be donating this amount per month (but you can cancel at any time). We have two tiers. 

$1 a month donation allows you access to the Power Hour Patreon Community. You can communicate with other Power Hour listeners. You can ask questions or offer comment on the show. That is just 25 cents per show, and that's not counting the recruiting shows we'll be doing as well. 

$2 a month donation will give you access to "Power Hour Overtime." Overtime will give you access to the Overtime Patreon Community (which is different than the $1 donation community). This level also includes an extra 15 minutes of Power Hour where Bob and I will answer your questions about the team, the show, recruiting, Bob's past experiences as a former coach/recruiting coordinator, or any other questions you may have. This download will only be made available on the Patreon board, and for Overtime members. It won't be uploaded to ITunes or Google Play or the like. If we get enough of these members, Bob and I have some cool ideas for even more perks that we believe you'll really enjoy! 

If you like having Coach Chmiel on the show and what we've been doing lately, we're hoping you'll take the time and support having him on the show. As I mentioned, we'd like to add a third host at some point in the near future as well. 

Below in a link to our Patreon Page. You can securely set up your Patreon donation there. 

Note: Power Hour will remain free for everyone to listen to. You are not required to donate anything to listen to the show, and everything will be uploaded the exact same as it always was, except the Power Hour Overtime part, which goes with the $2 donation. 

Appreciate any and all support. We'd really like to take Power Hour to the next level.
