It all started with a little thing called independent media. Thanks to the 2016 US primaries and general elections, many independent media outlets bubbled to the surface. Some had been around since the days of Air America, while others just started finding their voice on YouTube. This grabbed our attention, because we found the traditional news outlets to be lackluster – both in content and presentation. Independent media broke the formulaic (and archaic) structure of how people got their news, and we very much wanted to be part of this growing movement.
With this newly found inspiration, we decided to join the independent media community. But, how? Having already successfully run a podcast on digital media and marketing for the previous two years (you can listen to Branch-Out on iTunes!), a podcast seemed like a natural choice. Thus, MindMine Podcast was born.
We watched a few streams and realized that the Twitch community was the type of community we envisioned for MindMine. A place where diverse voices converge from all over the world – where individuals agree or agree to disagree. It’s a space where information and ideas are shared, and where creativity and innovation can thrive.
Bringing the MindMine Podcast to the live stream medium felt like a natural next step
