May 2019 Podcast (The Final Edition)

May 2019 Podcast with Jon Cudo and Rob Wicall. The duo discusses the recent article called Mascot Mechanics, plus the originality of the Riverdog’s promo schedule and breaking news on about the podcast.

Rob Wicall and Jon Cudo have about 50 years experience in costume. In this month’s podcast they work through part of their Top 10 Tips on how to succeed in costume.  The podcast is related to a new featured article on Gameops.com this month called Mascot Mechanics.

Rob and Jon work through the first section called BE AWARE, looking at the value of being present in the moment in your character.  How this effects your time outs, how to work around issues using referees and knowing what the fans want and expect. 

Then the duo talks about being original and the value of being a creative force.  In this section we broaden out the discussion to look at being original in your promotions.  We take a look at the Charleston Riverdogs promotional calendar in 2019 which stood-out for its raw creative power.  (See the 5 promotions featured in our week-long review in the Water Cooler).

Then Jon ‘speaks into existence’ some breaking news about the Gameops.com Podcast and Rob speaks an Ironman into his own existence. #AccomplishLife
