I really like your podcasts and it would be great if some of our 
projects could present themselves.

Here is a link to the episodes. https://mapscaping.podbean.com/

@MarketingTeam - we should discuss Daniels suggestion at our next

>> The average episode is downloaded between 1700 and 2100 times in the

>> am confident we can dramatically increase these numbers in the
>> coming months but this is what the numbers look like today.
>> For every episode, we produce we also create a 2000 - 2500 word SEO
>> optimized article and spend a week promoting the episode across our
>> various channels. MapScaping has 31,400 followers on Twitter and
>> 54,000 on Facebook. Our email list is just over 2000.
>> How we might be able to work together
>> Each podcast episode and accompanying article costs $500 USD to
>> produce and promote.
>> So my pitch to you is this:
>> *
>> We split the cost, $250 each. OSGeo helps me find a qualified guest
>> to talk about one of OSgeo’s projects and I produce and promote
>> the podcast episode.
>> *
>> OSGeo helps promote the podcast episode to their audience/list
>> If this is something that you might want to be involved with I would
>> love to hear from you. Also happy to go into more detail and answer
>> any questions you might have.
>> Hope you are all safe and well. This is my first time posting to the
>> list so apologies if I have broken in rules, that was not my
>> intention!
>> Cheers
>> Daniel
