Hey, there. I’m Tom (or R0B0TS)
I knew when I graduated college that I wanted to do something in the gaming industry, but I didn’t go to college for game design or coding or even marketing or design. I got 2 degrees actually – Philosophy and Religious Studies. I like to say that I majored in “deep thoughts about everything” but it’s more like I majored in how not to get a job out of college.
After multiple career changes designed to expand my personal learning in graphic design, sound design, business, management, marketing, search engine optimization, content creation, video editing, streaming, and more, and thousands of hours spent on my own failed after-work projects, I finally struck gold.
I pulled together all of my knowledge, “primed the marketing pump” and launched the Fallout Lorecast in January of 2019. It was an instant hit.
Based on the audience response, I knew within the first month that this show could change my life.
So I took that recipe for success and launched more shows, and then eventually a network of podcasts. And now my goal is to take the knowledge I’ve gained and pass it on to new podcasters so that you can have everything you need to succeed right from the beginning. Because I wish I had a guide like this when I was starting out. If I had someone who could have taught me what to do, especially what NOT to do, it would have saved me so much money and time.
So where am I at with my podcasting career right now? Well, as I’m writing this I’m about to finish up my 3rd year of content for the Fallout Lorecast and it’s recently passed 1.2 Million downloads. It’s among the top 0.5% of podcasts globally and regularly sits in the top 50 video game podcasts on Apple Podcasts and the top 50 leisure podcasts on Spotify. My other shows are doing pretty well too, following close behind.
Oh, and after just under 3 years I’m now doing this full-time. That’s right. I have a full-time video game podcasting career and it only took me 20 years. But I’m proud because I worked my way out of corporate America and into a job that I loved.
And that’s the most important thing that I learned. If I can do it, then anyone can do it and it shouldn’t take you 20 years. You just need to know where to start and how to take the right steps. Oh, and you have to actually do the work. I can’t do that part for you, but I can point you in the right direction, show you the path, and tell you what potholes to avoid.
“From the smallest tricks and tips, to the in-depth research, Tom has it all. His wealth of knowledge, and willingness to share it all, has been instrumental in getting my first podcast off the ground.” ~ Jennasis, Two Girls One Ship
