As a business, it helps if you've actually got a coherent plan in place of what you're selling and when. In the latest podcast Moose & Dews discuss their distinct lack of a plan to date.
It's definitely not all serious stuff though, as they come up with a "great" idea for an "audio companion"*, the idea for Dewsbury's "Fear & Sex" podcast arises** and there's an initial idea for the official launch of Primordial Radio which will involve many miles, many beers, and possibly YOUR living room!
*Which is precisely as awful as it sounds.
**Which is far WORSE than it sounds***
***And it sounds like the worst thing imaginable.
In this weeks' episode, Moose & Dews get down to brass tacks and discuss The Bottom Line. Seriously, if we don't draw in x amount in advertising/sponsorship, we're fucked. If we don't get x number of members, we're fucked. Most of this seems to come as a surprise to one half of the undynamic duo. Guess which half...?
There's also talk of Bloodstock, cephalopod hats, the upcoming Primordial pub quiz IV, Primordial Süp AND Moose exposing himself in public. Again.
Selling beer to pubs is hard. Like, REALLY hard. Turns out that even putting an event on is hard. You'd have thought that the promise of a full bar & beer sales aplenty would be enough to win even the most cynical of bar managers, but that appears to not be the case, as our heroes are discovering.
This week there's talk of rejections, but signs of a lifeline. There's also much discussion beer, Bloodstock and the latest on some Very. Cool. Merch.
Dews also talks to himself, but hey, what's new there...
Having managed an entire week without their radio station falling off-air, Moose & Dews heed the old Army adage "Never reinforce failure" and take a look at some of the things in the Primordial world that aren't going as well as hoped, and consider what needs to change.
There's also ideas on the the Primordial AGM and the ongoing t-shirt preorder, as well as news on the possibility of cans of Primordial Süp!
Moose & Dews explain why & how the Primordial test stream was off-air for 16 hours, and discuss ideas to prevent it happening again. There's also news of the latest addition to the team, and an idea for the next Primordial pub quiz.
In which our heroic podcast editor has a drink, and quickly runs out of many things, including energy, motivation, and f*cks.
Stay tuned for more updates...
In this latest episode of the podcast, Moose & Dews bring you the latest update on all things Primordial, including membership, merch and some initial ideas for the Primordial AGM.
They also share a few thoughts on the recent launch of Primordial Süp, in which they - along with the #PRFam - managed to drink THREE kegs of delicious Süp in TWO hours! That explains the hangovers...
WE DID IT! And yet we're still doing it...
Yeah, we didn't read the fine print, so - at time of publishing - our Seedrs crowdfunding campaign hasn't closed. It will though, and soon.
As well as bemoaning their lack of appreciation for the fine details, in this episode Moose & Dews also discuss the various elements that make up Primordial Radio, and how we can move them forward, including merch, the soup van and the sound of the radio station. There's also BIG NEWS on the launch of Primordial Süp!
You know how sometimes you plan a thing out, then something unexpected happens at the last minute that throws everything you've planned out the window? That's kinda what's happened with this weeks' podcast.
This week was going to be a last minute push from Moose & Dewsbury to try and hit our crowdfunding goal, with reasoned arguments to support why you should get involved, along with an appeal to those with a more emotional side.
Then we hit our target 30 minutes before we were due to record the podcast.
Welcome to the most hastily cobbled together Primordial podcast yet! And that's saying something.
In this episode, Moose & Dews look to the future; now we've achieved our crowdfunding goal, what are we going to do with it?
With less than two weeks to go on their Seedrs crowdfunding bid, the clock is ticking for our intrepid heroes.
This week on the podcast, Moose & Dewsbury team up to bring you the latest update on Seedrs and the brewing of their beer; Primordial Süp. They also round-up the feedback from last weeks' Primordial Pub Quiz 2, and reveal their plans for a snap pub quiz! NEXT WEEK! Pub Quiz 3 is a thing!
Finally, it's audience question time, as M & D set about answering some of your questions, be they regarding the crowdfunding bid, the radio station or otherwise.

Slightly later than planned, Pete talks about the reasons why he is Primordial, why they're important to him and there's even a poem he's made (Bloody smart arse, trying to show the rest of us up!)

In the grand scheme of things a year isn't all that long, but it's amazing how things can change in that time. Exactly one year ago, our heroes were just about to be made redundant from their radio presenting jobs. Now however, with their Seedrs crowdfunding bid ongoing, and on the eve of their first live broadcast on Primordial Radio, Moose, Pete Bailey and Dewsbury look back on what has been a rollercoaster of a year.
You ever make a decision ahead of time, then when it comes to it, REALLY regret it? Moose & Dews certainly have, as neither of them is going to Download festival for the first time in years, and neither of them is particularly happy with their decision. This latest episode of the podcast is basically them complaining about it. They do however have some interesting thoughts on NEXT year...
They also have the latest updates on their seedrs.com crowdfunding campaign and a brewing date - AN ACTUAL DATE! - for the long-awaited Primordial Süp ale.
Following on from Moose last week, Dews decided to try and express exactly why HE is Primordial. *SPOILER* He's not very good at it.
This week finds Moose in a soul-baring mood, as he reflects on the events of the past week and how they have affected him. There's also an update on our postponed Primordial pub quiz.
It's been an incredible first nine days of our Seedrs.com crowdfunding campaign. In the podcast this week, Moose looks back at some of the highs & lows of the last week, and looks forward to what we can accomplish together. There's also contributions from the Primordial Family on what this means to them. S/O to Luke, Kate & Gary. Moose also brings you news of the upcoming second Primordial Radio Pub Quiz, as well as news of the label design competition for Primordial Süp (you didn't think we'd forget, right?). Best of all, our whole reason-for-being is beginning to take shape. PRIMORDIAL RADIO LIVES!
Moose is flying solo on the podcast this week, with the latest from our seedrs.com crowdfunding bid, as well as a plea to spread it as far and wide as you can. There's also news of the next Primordial Virtual Online Interactive Pub Quiz type thing, which really needs a snappier title than that...

In this weeks' episode of the podcast Moose, Pete and Dews, separately take some time to try and gather their thoughts and reflect on what Primordial Radio has already become - and where it could go from here - before the launch of their www.seedrs.com crowdfunding bid next week.
The clock is ticking in the latest episode of the Primordial Radio podcast, as the launch of their crowdfunding bid draws ever closer.
In this episode, Moose has the latest update on the beer label competition, as well as some important details for the upcoming Primordial pub quiz (that he's previously forgotten to mention, the tit).
He also chats with business consultant John Hamelink about some important financial restructuring, and John Heaney, the video maestro who has taken charge of the all-important promotional video for the crowdfunding bid on www.seedrs.com.
It's kinda like definitely maybe, only even more ambiguous. In this episode, the dynamic duo of Moose and Dewsbury start with a fairly solid agenda of talking points, before donning their backpacks and wooly socks, and heading off for a ramble through the conversational countryside. There's the latest news on the Primordial pub quiz, an update on the upcoming funding bid which kicks off on May 8th, and the details of how to enter our competition to design the label of our Primordial Süp beer.
It's a veritable ideas-bonanza on the podcast this week! Moose presents a whole bunch of ideas for the short-to-mid-term-future of Primordial Radio, including our forthcoming merch shop (with extremely cool Bluetooth speakers!), the Primordial pub quiz, and even a soup wagon. I kid ye not. To that end, in this episode Moose speaks to Brian Baglow from Jukebox Labs about our online pub quiz idea, and to the guys from Pig & Porter brewery - who are going to be brewing our Primordial Süp - about your chance to design the label and bag yourself some free beer. See, it wasn't just a click bait episode title...
In this latest episode, our distinctly bleary-eyed trio of Dewsbury, Moose & Pete Bailey look back over the last week on the Long Road to Brewin'. They're sober as well, which makes a nice change.
The Long Road to Brewin' is underway, with Moose, Pete and Dewsbury heading off around the country. Following the first night in London, Moose and Dews shook the hangovers off and got together in studio 1 to discuss the previous night and their hopes for the week ahead. The podcast this week also features an old friend...
This week the podcast is all about the Long Road to Brewin'. After literally years of being told that they can't do it, Moose, Pete Bailey and Dewsbury are finally going to be heading out on their UK-wide road trip #LRTB. The sole aim is to meet as many Primordial fans as possible, have a natter, answer any questions, and sink a few beers.
In this episode, all three of the guys explain where they're going, what they're looking forward to, and what they're worried about.
This next week is going to be crazy #LRTB
In this latest episode, Moose explains The Plan. You can almost hear the Capital Letters. From staffing to revenue, via costs and marketing, he covers the lot. Be prepared for a massive dose of FACTS (not the alternative kind). His first guest this week is our funding advisor from www.seedrs.com, who has a name you probably won't believe. He knows his stuff though, and helps to illustrate why the upcoming Primordial Radio road trip - The Long Road To Brewin' - is so important. On that subject, this week Moose also speaks to our brewmaster Sean Ayling from Pig & Porter brewery, who will be developing our very own Primordial Sup ale.
