I’ve recently started listening to podcasts during my commutes in my car. For those that don’t know, podcasts are a series of downloadable audio shows presented in a similar fashion to radio. The word podcast is a combination (portmanteau) of the words iPod and broadcast. They don’t have to be played on an iPod and can be played on any device - iOS, Apple, Android, burn it to CD], record it on an audiotape, 8-track, vinyl… (Although I doubt anyone has done the last two…)
Ever being the entrepreneur, I’ve been playing around with Amazon’s Print-On-Demand service Merch by Amazon. I’ve been doing this since March - although I believe I requested an account sometime late last year - and in my first four months, I had lackluster sales. Hell, I had no sales at all in the month of April!
Inspired by the Clickhole/Onion article “Embarrassing: The U.S. Is Ranked 182nd In The World Alphabetically” I decided to take action.
