Today we’d like to introduce you to Rob Hollywood and J’Deaux Tha Groove.
The Chicken And Whiskey Podcast started with two friends, fraternity brothers (Omega Psi Phi), and business partners having a debate over sports and deciding “we should record this”.
RobHollywood then moved on to researching and decided creating a podcast would be the perfect platform for them to show family and friends their opinions and thoughts on current events.
Moving forward, after buying microphones, lights and a camera, RobHollywood and J’Deaux Tha Groove created The Chicken And Whiskey Podcast, one of the hottest and most popular podcasts in the DFW metropolis.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
To create a podcast, it took a lot and a lot of research, like any other business. We weren’t sure where to host the podcast, how to record it. How to market the podcast was never a question, as RobHollywood specializes in marketing and promotion. We followed the advice given by a good friend and mentor, Big Tex, of BigTexMarketing.com, and watched hours and hours of other podcast and found what our competition was doing right and wrong.
We moved forward with recording episodes while “learning the podcast game” and figuring out different ways to market what we were doing. We bought flyers, started selling T-Shirts, and even gave a few away. We wanted social media influencers to wear our logo on a shirt and asked them to post on their social media sites. Then came the followers! And the listens and streams started to rise!
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into The Chicken And Whiskey Podcast Show story. Tell us more about the business.
The Chicken And Whiskey Podcast is like barbershop talk, as they say. We give our audience an insight to two men having conversations and debates on everything from politics, sports, entertainment, and relationships. Live from the living room, as we say!
We found a way to present our podcast on all media outlets so everyone can listen or watch. We didn’t want anyone to be able to ask us, “how do I listen/watch” and we not have an answer for them. Our podcast is now available on Youtube, Spotify, SoundCloud, Apple Podcast and Google Play.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Luuuuuuck *Soula Boy voice*? We are so lucky! Lucky, that so many people actually enjoy listening to us debate and discuss random topics. It’s funny and exciting that we don’t have a set schedule and people continue to support and cant wait for the next episode to release. We have had plenty of listeners join the debate with us regarding our opinions, whether they agree or disagree. That’s the fun part!
How fun would a Podcast be if everyone agrees with you? We love our audience. We even named them The Chicken and Whiskey Gang. Check them out on the Instagram hashtag #ChickenAndWhiskeyGang to see pictures of them in our shirts. So the answer to your question, yes! We are lucky and appreciate of our supporters. Support is not easy!
