Supporting Independent Canadian Podcasts: Support the Supporters

I've been assisting in the production of podcasts for over a decade now, and I've managed the A-Z of my own podcast for over five years, so trust me when I tell you Canada is lagging far behind the United States when it comes to the monetization of podcasts. Sponsors seem hesitant to embrace the medium, avoiding the "bleeding edge" and parking their marketing dollars in traditional legacy channels.

Ask any podcast listener how many independent Canadian podcasts they listen to. If you remove podcasts from the CBC, Bell Media, Rogers Media and Corus, what Canadian content is on your playlist? I'll wait while you count them on one hand...

This is why it's vital we support those companies willing to step up and sponsor independent podcasts in this country. If you'll allow it, and you don't really have a choice, I'd like to talk about the three organizations spending real dollars from their marketing budgets on a completely independent podcast recorded in some guy's basement in southwest Toronto.

Pay TM
Pay TM Canada is located in Liberty Village and they recently signed on for six months to promote their bill payment app. This is pretty cool, and I urge you all to try it. Not only is it convenient to have all of your bills on the PAY TM app but they'll pay you to pay your bills. You’ll receive 3% cash back on everyday goods like coffee at Tim Horton's and Gas at Esso. Now here's what I need you to do...

  1. Visit paytm.ca and download the app for your smartphone
  2. Use promo code "TorontoMike" to get $10 off on your first bill payment
  3. Enjoy and profit!

Propertyinthe6ix.com
Brian Gerstein is a longtime supporter of the podcast who recently renewed his sponsorship for a second six-months. A real estate sales representative with PSR Brokerage, he's not only a solid citizen, but he knows his stuff.

If you are planning to buy and/or sell in the next 6ix months, call Brian at (416) 873-0292 and visit Propertyinthe6ix.com.

Great Lakes Brewery
Great Lakes Brewery were first to step up and sponsor Toronto Mike'd and they've just renewed for the third time. That's two years now (and counting)!

They're a fiercely independent brewery celebrating 30 years in the craft beer business and I can't tell you how many $5 pints I've enjoyed on their patio. In fact, I'm planning to bike over there today.

It also helps that they produce tasty beer. The next time you're thirsty, choose GLB and let them know you appreciate their support of independent Canadian podcasts.

Your Company Here
A podcast listener is a focused and loyal listener. If you have marketing dollars to spend, consider sponsoring an independent Canadian podcast. I'd like to hear more independent voices in this country and I'll bet you would, too.

The Ongoing History of All Jams Kicked Out

We've had 13 jam kickers thus far in the Kick Out the Jams! episodes of Toronto Mike'd. You'll find all 13 (and counting) right here.

Listener Tyler Campbell has meticulously documented every jam kicked out and recorded this detail in a shared spreadsheet. Click here to open the KOTJ spreadsheet in Google Sheets.

It's not just which jams have been kicked out by whom, but the frequency in which each artist pops up. The Beatles, for example, have been kicked out seven times, and unbelievably, it's seven different songs.

Knowing the jams before you listen is an obvious spoiler, so I've asked Tyler to wait a week before updating the spreadsheet. Now if you're up to date and have already heard Mike Stafford's jams, click through!

Thanks, Tyler! I owe you a six-pack of Great Lakes Beer.

Should the Kick Out the Jams Episodes be a Standalone Podcast?

I have a question for the hivemind. If you're a subscriber of Toronto Mike'd, I need you to chime in with your opinion.

There are now 13 Kick Out the Jams! episodes of my podcast. Right now, they're part of Toronto Mike'd. If you're subscribed to Toronto Mike'd, you get these episodes along with the deep dives and 12:36 and Elvis recaps.

Should these Kick Out the Jams! episodes remain a part of Toronto Mike'd or should they spin off into their own standalone podcast?
