Hello, my name is Stacey Gotsulias and I host the Locked On Yankees podcast on the Locked On Podcast Network. I am also a writer whose work has appeared in magazines and books. I've written for ESPN, Baseball Prospectus, The Hardball Times, Sporting News and SB Nation. I took over hosting duties on the podcast starting in June 2018 and really enjoy it. I am looking forward to recording a full-season worth of shows in 2019.
My goal is to make the Locked On Yankees podcast so good that Yankee fans, and fans of other baseball teams, will want to listen to it every day–appointment listening, if you will. I want someone to schedule time out of their day to listen to my show and to enjoy it. I would love for them to look forward to listening to Locked On Yankees every day.
To do that, I will need a few things. I will need better equipment than what I have at the moment and I unfortunately do not have the funds to pay for it. Ideally, I'd like to have a fancier microphone—I use a gaming headset given for free by a generous friend. It doesn't have to be a $500-1000 mic but I want it to be something that won't give me issues and cause me to miss days of recording because it's not working correctly. I'd love to buy an equalizer for when I have guests on the show. And ultimately, I'd love to have the funds to use higher quality recording software than I am using to record and edit the show. I enjoy the editing process but would love for it to be easier than it is right now.
The goal is to have enough money to afford new equipment and to afford to record the podcast five days a week with no issues.
Any amount would be helpful and again, I want to make this podcast something that people have to listen to and make a part of their daily routine. I will donate any additional money beyond what's needed to fund him podcast to various charities.
Thank you advance for your help, I really appreciate it.
