Dear Jon of All Trades Listener,
Well, holy shit!
The Jon of All Trades Podcast is a finalist in the Westword’s Best of Denver 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards, and it’s because of you. Thank you to everyone who took a moment to nominate this show a couple of weeks ago when the nomination period opened. Now, I’ll ask you to go there one more time and vote for me again. Click the link below, find the Best Denver Podcast category (should be about 3/4 of the way down), and choose Jon of All Trades. Here’s the link:
As of this writing, I’m a week shy of doing this show for two years. With a couple of minor hiccups and hiatuses, that’s meant fresh content pretty much every week for the last 103 weeks, putting me at 90 shows – 87 with a guest (or guests), and 3 solo episodes. That’s nearly 4 days worth of audio content, which, now that I’m sitting here tallying that up, is, in technical terms, a shitload.
It feels unnatural to ask you to vote for me, but then considering how neurotic I am, I’m sort of amazed that anyone listens to these things at all. It’s incredibly flattering that you allow me and the guests I bring you, and the stories we share, to be a part of your lives. For that I’m eternally grateful, and thoroughly humbled.
I do this show for you. And I do it for my guests because they have fascinating stories that deserve to be told, to be spotlighted, and to be heard from people who might not otherwise hear them. There’s so much good and interesting work going on out there, and I’m privileged to be the mere vessel through which it gets the attention it deserves. Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives.
When it comes to the nuts and bolts of the show, I’m a one-man operation. I do all the booking, all the scheduling, all the recording, all the editing, all the writing, and all the promotion. I’m the jack of all trades on Jon of All Trades (So it’s not just a clever name…). But none of that work means anything without you.
So, this is the rare occasion where I blatantly ask you for a favor. If you like the show and if you’d like to help me grow its success, please vote for me in the Westword’s Best of Denver 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards.
Thank you for helping me do what I love to do. You’re the reason I do it.
