It’s that time of year, when writers take time off to compile their 2013 favorite moments. For me it’s the most challenging assignment – I have hard remembering last week’s fun let alone January. However, The Mernahuana Zone producer DJ Goodwins has been working hard at getting our great cannabis content on to more digital distribution outlets.
No, we’re not on Netflix…yet.
The Mernahuana Zone is now available on iTunes, Soundcloud and YouTube, but not Netflix. There’s no reason to miss a Tuesday webcast because you can now download an episode to your smart device and listen at your leisure. Our webcast has made some great improvements and I believe being on iTunes and Soundcloud is going to prove huge in 2014.
DJ Goodwins has gone through a year of material, which allowed him to compile a list of his favorite TMZ moments. It’s a very thorough list, but missing three of my own picks. All three picks rank very high on my year end list, but his own picks are fantastic too.
Every week on our webcast we bring three hours of fantastic content – it’s easy to overlook stuff. Hence the reason I hate making lists, but here’s three interviews DJ Goodwins missed.
The Jeremy Taggart interview was pivotal in proving our webcast could attract quality non-cannabis interviews. We reached out across the Twitterverse and he agreed to come on down. His Glen Danzig impression is probably one of our funniest moments. Who knew Taggart knew a member of Potheads Who Smoke Schwag from back in the day?
Best, Taggart performed a drum roll on 4/20 the day hell actually froze over. It was epic. If you missed it – too bad.
We followed up Taggart’s interview a few weeks later with Fucked Up Damian Abraham, who’s really into cannabis strains and the culture marijuana enthusiasts create. Damian also rushed the microphone on us when we interviewed Val Venis. It was like another wrestler running in to get involved in a match. Damian’s got mad skills too from his gig as host of The Wedge.
We held our own thanks to heavy toking. Our secret is high tolerance. We blaze heavily while conducting interviews because we’re excited to have a great guest on our webcast. I really enjoy interviewing guests because years of interviews has given me skills to ask the right question. Now people get to see what was happening behind the scenes on camera.
We have so many guests say during their segment, ‘What a great question?’ that our new commercial is going to feature the quote ‘What a great question!’. We want to have an action packed show every week with guests, whether it’s in person, via Skype or pre-recorded.
However, The Mernahuana Zone tackles hard subject matter and it’s the reason Liberal MP Chrystia Freeland refused our advances. We’re friendly fellows and though it goes against journalism we do offer tepid guests our questions in advance.
We covered Rob Ford before he became internationally known that we declared a Ford Free Webcast when he became mad popular. I don’t know the mayor’s of any of other Canadian city, but residents well outside of Toronto know who our king is. Our politics is talk show controversial and viewers are encouraged to Skype us if they want to chime in on the topic we are toking about.
I’m really excited about The Mernahuana Zone possibilities for 2014. The new distribution outlets are going to create fantastic opportunity for a much larger audience. In case you couldn’t toke in live on Tuesdays, you won’t miss anything with our Soundcloud or iTunes digital distribution.
