Q & A’s with Melissa from We’re Not All Ninjas
When did you start podcasting?
We’re Not All Ninjas started releasing episodes on November of 2016.
Why did you start podcasting?
I wanted a podcast of this format and focus, but couldn’t find one. So with that absence, I decided to start my own!
What’s your show about?
We’re Not All Ninjas is a movie review podcast. Each episode, we discuss a movie that features an Asian-American characters.
We review the plot, how the characters portrays to Asian-Americans at large, and end with the Abacus, a rating system used to help further discussions on white-washing, white saviors, stereotypes, and intersectionality.
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
We use Blue Yeti as our mic, Audacity to edit, and Libsyn to host.
How have you promoted your podcast?
We’ve got all the social media! (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Instagram). We’ve reached out to a variety of blogging sites, and we’ve have the Nerds of Color Founder, Keith Chow on as a guest.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
I wish I had known more about the technical aspect of recording. Mics are so sensitive and they catch everything. I also wish we had known how easy it is to connect with people via Twitter. 🙂
