Episode #131: Travisphere & The Twitterverse


This week we take a bit of a departure from our normal format to talk to Travis Knight, the nicest guy on Twitter, and host of The Travisphere Podcast. The JellyVision Show team met Travis on Twitter and he soon became loved by us all because he showed such support for our show. He recently launched his own podcast and we felt we had to return the love. So, we finally used Google Hangout and we all had a nice conversation. Follow The Travisphere on Twitter!
We talk to Travis about his podcast, his life and we all share tips on how other podcasters can use Twitter to engage their existing listeners and attract new ones. We hope you like this episode of The JellyVision Show. If you do, please consider subscribing and rating The JellyVision Show on Stitcher. We are trying to win a trophy. Thanks so much!!

Episode #130: Comic Writer, Ryan Nichols & Dark Element


On this episode of The JellyVision Show, we talk to comic book writer and web series producer, Ryan Nichols about his life as a creative entrepreneur. Ryan shares the the origins of his passion for both writing and comics which goes back to his childhood when he got grounded for reading too much. He also shares his advice for anyone considering going into the field. We discuss the depreciation of comic books and how a site like Comixology can help attract new readers to this dynamic art form. We get all get a little more educated on comics--they are a medium, not a genre! Ryan is also producing two comedy web series (Trash Talk and Smoke Break) which will be released in the near future.
We are joined by a man known only as Dark Element who claims to be part of an underground organization known only as The Lifted Veil. He is a self-proclaimed "Truther" and is out to educate the public on what the government refuses to tell us--The TRUTH. You will never believe what he was brave enough to tell us about aliens, mermaids, time travel and even Velveeta Cheese.

Special Thanks to DC area improviser, Alex Beard, who teaches improv and performs with multiple improv troupes, including Just Moxi.

Episode #129: Danny Charnley


We break our stand-up sabbatical with DC comedy writer, musician and stand-up comic, Danny Charnley! We talk about his music background and its influence on his joke writing. We also learn about Danny's Ups & Downs working as a full-time comic. We discuss how the absence of Gatekeepers opens up opportunities for artists and performers to take their talent, discipline and motivation and navigate their own careers to success. Danny is taking advantage of  this by launching his own County Stand-Up Tour. We even get into books for entrepreneurs--including Grant Cardone's The 10X Rule and Marc Ecko's book, Unlabel: Selling You without Selling Out. This episode was one incredible conversation, complete with a business tip of the week for just for comics! You can find Danny and his 100,000 followers on Twitter at @DanKCharnley.  You can also buy his beats on itunes.
