Happy Friday Y’all,
And welcome to Substack! You can leave comments on every post now. About that…. how are you? What’s on your mind? What would you like to see from The Holler over the coming weeks? If you’re not from the Ohio Valley, what kind of content would be interesting to you? Who / what stories in the area really need a profile? If you have a bee in your bonnet about any of these topics, or anything else really, I invite you to pop off in the comment section. It’s the little speech bubble at the bottom of this post.
I fired up The Holler in May and have been in testing mode since then. The goal is to produce entertaining content that matters to the community. I’ve really enjoyed producing stories on people making their way in the Ohio Valley. Man-on-the-street segments have also been fun. For the next few weeks, The Holler is going to try more of those stories and maybe play around with political opinion pieces. Speaking of which, if you have something to say, please get in touch. I’d love to run guest content.
Longer form videos like profiles and man-on-street segments take more work to produce, so the publishing schedule will be less frequent. We’ll try to keep it around one post per week.
Last announcement! I’ll be bringing in an email list of people who’ve known me in past lives soon, so stay tuned for their introduction email. I’ll sum up what we’ve been up to the last couple of months.
We have two local profile stories in the works that I’m pumped about. One is on the budding stand-up comedy scene in the Ohio Valley, the other is about indie wrestling.
Here are some pics from planning and filming these short pieces for your enjoyment.
