Episode 1 – Scott Stratten and Redshirts


Welcome to the first episode of Nurture and Support!

Mel starts off by by talking about a book. This will happen a lot, so prepare yourselves.

BOOKRedshirts by John Scalzi. Mr. Scalzi has an active blog entitled Whatever. Mel was apparently wrong when she told you it was different. She promises not to let that happen again, but don’t hold your breath.

MUSICRedshirts by Jonathan Coulton. This is a song based on John Scalzi’s book of the same name. Please check out his other music at his website here.

Kelly had recently attended a conference where Scott Stratten was a keynote speaker and his session provided all of Kelly’s recommendations, which were….

BOOK – QR Codes Kill Kittens: How to Alienate Customers, Dishearten Employees, and Drive Your Business into the Ground – This is Scott’s most recent book and is FULL of funny pictures (YAY pictures) and stories of horrible uses of QR codes and other marketing mishaps.

PODCASTS – Scott has two awesome video podcasts, the UnPodcast (about Marketing, speaking, publishing, social media, etc.) and TheVegas30 (enjoying Las Vegas for the 30+ crowd) available on his YouTube channel and iTunes as well

APP – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – Need to invoke Darth Vader’s soul crushing “nooooooooooooooo”?  Scott created a website and an app so you can play it whenever needed.  The app is currently only available on Android as the iPhone version undergoes the Sith-like iTunes store review.

Nurture and Support is a podcast about sharing cool discoveries.  It might be a good book, an old/new movie, a great app for your phone, or a podcast almost as fun as this one.

While these could be nearly anything, common themes will likely emerge related to: bad sci-fi movies, zombies, corgis (Mel), Alice Cooper (Kelly), Firefly, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, etc…

Each episode we  share our latest “finds” with each other.  We would love to share yours as well!  Please drop us a note at nurtandsupp@gmail.com if you have something to share.
