Building “The Mix”

Building “The Mix”
This is my third week on Anchor which means it is also the third week of the audio version of my show The Mix.
It has been such fun so far! I am so grateful for Anchor and all that it is allowing not only myself but so many people to do with podcasting.
I have already learned a lot about podcasting and also about Anchor itself. It is such a joy to connect with people and learn more about social media from personalities like Ileane from Ileane Speaks and Kathy over at WP Barista.
Dr. DAN over at Anchor Talk also has so much useful information on using Anchor itself as a platform.
There are so many other amazing stations as well to dive into for great content.
One of the many reasons I started this podcast is to learn. To try different things. See what works, what doesn’t, and have fun in the process. That’s why I call it “The Mix.”
I like variety.
I like to talk about and learn about so many different things that there is no other title that would work.
This too is what led me to want to be a journalist. A love of learning and talking about things with people!!
Trying to build a presence on social media as a journalist means spending much time doing so.
Time is precious to me as I MUST work full-time (sometimes six days) to provide for myself while I am in school and pursuing this career change.
Having said that the format of “The Mix” will probably change and be experimented often.
microphone-2469293_1920The first two weeks I did an episode every day. I learned quickly that was not within my means. I want my shows to be done well and as professional as I know how. This means spending time on them. Researching, writing, and finding great content to talk about.
I have ranged from two to four hours spent in total just for one 20 to 30 minute episode.
While I LOVE doing it and it feels like the time just flies by it is hard to find that much time every day.
In order to be able to get the most out of the time I will for now only be doing “The Mix” on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
This will allow me to be more invested in the individual shows and then on the other days of the week I can spend some more time on the “community” aspect which is THRIVING on Anchor.
I am connecting and learning in a way that I img_0928-1never have before on social media. So being able to utilize that community is important.
This format will probably change again in the coming weeks. I will learn new ways of doing things and try different experiments while having a blast building my life as a journalist.
Cuz like I often say… it’s always fun to add something new to “The Mix!”

The Mix with Caleb Graham on Anchor

The Mix with Caleb Graham on Anchor

Good morning!!

As I continue on and get a little bit more serious about pursuing my journalism career, I have decided to get the ball rolling once again on a podcast!


In the past my endeavors with “The Mix” have taken on several forms.  Video blogs, pre-recorded, live broadcasts, etc…  I have never though taken the idea to audio podcasting.  Until now…

Thanks to this incredible new platform called Anchor I can now have another dream become a reality.

I have always loved radio.  It is great for me because I am so busy with my job (that I must keep full-time for now because of money and benefits) that it is hard for me to remain consistent.

Sometimes though you just have to wake up and say, its time to make things happen.

I have been working my little booty off in recent months to try and save the money that I need to go back to school.  I am about halfway there, which is fantastic!  I should be paid off in a couple months, and then I can finally get back to school full time!

Like I have stated before, until then I am trying to do whatever I can do to prepare myself for the future, and also try to gain a presence on social media in the journalism world.

This is not easy to do when you don’t have a lot of hours to devote to it.

But that will not stop me!

That’s where “The Mix” comes in!

I now officially have a podcast where I can create a show three times a week that reflects my voice and where I want my career to take me.  I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Now in my third week on the Anchor platform I have virtually connected with so many incredible people and already learned so much.   I can’t wait to see where else this will lead.

To listen in you can find the podcast in three ways.  First is iTunes!  That’s right, my podcast is on iTunes!  Go into iTunes or the Apple Podcasts app and search “The Mix with Caleb Graham” and all of my episodes will be there!  You can also find it on Google Play Music if you have an Android phone.

Download the app ANCHOR!  It is an incredible place.  You can find my station by clicking here!
As always I LOVE conversation so please comment and reach out to me with your thoughts on the podcast and what I can do to make it better!


Take some time today to add something new to The Mix!!
