Hanief Saterfield and Minding Our Business

We are proud to announce a new show and a new host to The Marching Podcast Network, Minding Our Business featuring Hanief Saterfield. Hanief is the owner and founder of Bobspotter, a mobile application that identifies black owned businesses across the country. The power of the application is the knowledge of these businesses existing and what we, as consumers, can do with this information will make a huge difference in our community. Hanief will be taking the podcast world head on by informing our community and our nation of where we can go to spend our dollars and at the same time keep our dollars in our community. Hanief will be talking to the owners of these businesses so we hear their story and gives them time to plug their business using our platform. Hanief will also be empowering our young listeners on how they can become owners of their own business. Learning from people who are in the field as we speak will give some young person the influence and the example to follow.

We are really excited to broadcast this show because this service is investing in our most important resource, our children, and will provide and spread the knowledge across the country. The perception of our people in business and education is very important for our children to see. You can go to the website here to download the app and to register your business.

Interview Lists – Off the Top of My Head

Things are moving along, and I am very grateful. Now I need to build the list of people who I want to interview for this podcast. I have met some folks through various websites, and I would like for them to advertise what they are doing. I would prefer, of course, a graduate from an HBCU that marched in their band, but I understand that there is more knowledge out there to give to our youth. So anyone who is involved with music, providing leadership to youth, doing something to build our communities and/or someone who can give a positive influence and role model to our young people, I would like for you to help with this podcast. Since there is no professional band league, we need to get kids to think about what they will do after school is over. How will they give back to their communities? Here is the list that I made off the top of my head.

1. Tamala Jones
2. Born Foster
3. Josh Collins
4. Gerald Henderson
5. Moreh Smith
6. Samuel Glover
7. Michael McGruder
8. Duncan Gray
9. The Funky Fishing Show with Anthony Taylor and Hanief Saterfield
10. Mara Jean
11. Jalani Bakari
12. Maleta Wilson
13. Ron Duplessis
14. Gregory Johnson
15. Donyelle Walls
16. Cortez Bryant

The Funky Fishing Show, which is hosted by two of my fraternity brothers, is the only one on the list that is not on task per say, but two positive men doing a fishing show is the same idea that allowed me to create the radio podcast show for marching bands. So, with this in mind, I hope to hear from everyone.

Nuts and Bolts

Here is my current update and where I am. I am getting more information for interviews than I am getting for covering an actual games. I am still not 100% sure about how I will present things but I have put together the syllabus for the show. I have 6 parts of the show and I have a time frame of 40-50 minutes. Using twitter I am able to see the games for the upcoming weekend but I have to figure out how to present the game to the listener. In addition I would like to design a formula that gives more of a substantial result as what band beat the other. Chris Jones and I talked about this years ago when trying to put together a battle of the bands, we wanted to determine a winner by a panel of judges based on variables that we come up with. In addition ESPN has created this new QBR rating to give a better formula than QB rating, so I thought the same here.
The parts of the show are as follows:

1. Intro
2. news\game recaps
3. Interview\Education
4. Game Previews
5. emails
6. Conclusion

The intro and conclusion will be a total of 5min but the other segments I would like to fill 10-12 min each. I would like the podcast to last between 35-50 min. News and Game recaps will be information from any hbcu that is worth mentioning, then we go into the recap of the weekend’s games. This will be based on reports submitted from a correspondent at the individual game. We will discuss the formula used to analyst the two bands and what opinion was given as to who won the battle.

The interview and education will be an interview to someone who is doing something in the community. I will come up with questions to conduct the interview and will allow the name to spread about what the person is doing and how we can help. Very important to have good guests for the current students college or high school but to make more parents aware of what is going on.

My 2 most recent selections for interviews only have little to do with bands but more to do with people who are providing a service to our community. First is Maleta Wilson who went to Bethune Cookman and runs a black college tour so that California black children will have black educational experiences since no black school resides in Cali. This is a great service and giving her an interview to spread this is essential. The next are two of my frat brothers that have put together their own fishing show! I think that this is a great service to spread fishing knowledge but another way to spread interest in our community. Hanief Saterfield and Anthony Taylor have a show that was recently on Fox cable.

Game previews will be listing all the upcoming games on Thursday and Saturday and make a prediction of who will win.

Emails will be what people are writing into the show about, suggestions, debate of the formula, etc.

Conclusion will be me signing off. Giving an inspiration quote for the day and last-minute reminders, and shot outs. I will asking for more feedback about this setup and/or about anything else to get this show on the road. Please follow this blog or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.
