bradschmidt.net – Home of The Schmidt Show
Hello and welcome. My name is Brad Schmidt and I am the host of #TheSchmidtShow. This site really isn’t anything fancy or exciting. You won’t find any mindlessly addicting games to play and it probably isn’t going to be the next social media juggernaut that will destroy your hope and faith in humanity and/or the next generation. What you will find is an overflow of the ramblings of my show. Maybe it will be discussion on a topic we didn’t have time to address on the air. Maybe it will be a topic that just didn’t make for good talk show material but was a topic I still wanted to address. Some of it will be informative serious, some will be humorous and useless, and I suppose, some will just be cheesy. Hopefully in the end I hope it will be something you find interesting as I do my best to make talk radio a force for good.
With Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all the other forms of social media why still bother with a website? Well there are a lot of reasons actually but let me just give you a few:
It gives me a place for the extra
Most of us get tired of seeing all the junk on Facebook and other places. We got on social media because we wanted to keep up with family or reconnect with old friends. We didn’t get on there to see our crazy uncle Bob reduce the complicated concepts of economics and politics to some silly internet meme. So I try to keep that stuff off of my personal page and instead have a real conversation here.
It’s part of my “Platform.”
For 2 hours a day I do a talk show and I am blessed to be able to reach a lot of people that way. But, there is also only so much are you can cover in 2 hours. I want to be able to extend my platform beyond the radio waves and beyond the 2 hours a day. Jerry Reed was right, “there’s a long way to go and a short time to get there.” But, were going to do our best to “do what they said can’t be done.
I love to write.
One day I hope to leave behind a legacy, an archive of my ideas if you will, for those who come after me. Shakespeare or Hemingway I’m not and beyond this sentence will likely never be mentioned with them again. However, I am me, and that’s what you’ll get. You’ll hear advice and opinion, you’ll hear humor and truth. But no matter what, I will always strive to give you the real me.
This site is simply an extension of my show.
It may not be the site that you just have to go to everyday to find out the latest happenings and most recent gossip. But I do hope it will be a place you’ll show up at from time to time and even join in the discussion and share your ideas too.
So that’s it. Welcome and I look forward to hearing from you as I endeavor to make talk radio a force for good.http://bradschmidt.net/bradschmidt-net-home-of-the-schmidt-show/Welcome
