Ambire x Rehash - Jokerace Collab
Rob

There was an awesome tweet that Diana put out about the fact that the guests that hadn't been voted on still needed a home. And I saw that tweet and I thought what a great idea. We have a podcast going at Ambire so I reached out to Diana and we came up with this idea to take the people who hadn't been voted on and bring them into a brand new jokerace. Get both of our communities involved to vote on the next guest for our podcast, web three on Fire. So we'll be doing an announcement shortly here after this podcast goes out. Announcing the joke, race, the various nominees from the last round, as well as details about why they should come on. And then we will airdrop all the voting tokens to our collective communities and ask everybody to come vote and participate in the similar way that you do with rehash.

Diana

I am so excited about this, and just for some context about how this came about. Like I mentioned, for the past couple of seasons we've had about 45 people get nominated each season and we're only able to take 10 to 15 guests each season. 'cause that's how our seasons are basically structured as like a calendar quarter, so three months or so, and not even two and a half months or so, so that we have a little break in between.

And it's, I'm always so bummed every season to, to see the, all the people that don't make it onto the podcast because honestly, like all 45 people that are nominated should be on the podcast. Like they're all such good nominations and it's really . A crapshoot who actually gets voted on. It really just depends on what people are working on at that exact moment, like how people are talking to each other and colluding behind the scenes.

There's so much that goes into it that has nothing to do with how qualified these people are. So I was like I feel like it's such a waste. Every season to have all of these awesome guests get nominated. Like people are telling us, we want to hear from these people. We want these people to go on a podcast and talk about whatever they wanna talk about.

And it's such a missed opportunity. So I think it's super cool that you are doing something with it, taking these guests that were nominated on, totally qualified, like you heard from people, that they want to hear from these guests. So you know you're gonna have an audience. And you're actually doing something about it.

So I'm really excited to see how that plays out. And obviously any opportunity we have to use jokerace, and get some chaos brewing is always a fun time. So I'm super excited for that.

Rob

Yep. Love the chaos element. Love picking up where the guests were left off. And also the idea that they may be continuously nominated season after season if they don't end up. Diversifying that pool since maybe the audience was able to get a chance to hear from them. And also just cross-promoting and getting these, fun engaged communities together that participate in on chain governance in, in an awesome way through joke race.

So super stoked as, as well.

Diana

And one more thing too that I had mentioned to you before is I think it's really cool that you have a slightly different audience than Rehash does. I think Rehash is a lot more focused on media and content and culture and DAOs and all of those things, whereas am buyer is a little bit more focused on maybe more of the technical side of things.

Even your like, The difference between us as hosts, like you're an engineer, I'm not. And so you're able to hold a lot more technical conversations and go deeper into those than I am. And so maybe you know, the people that didn't get voted on for rehash, . Are actually a better fit for the Ambire podcast because you can have, deeper and better conversations with them than I can.
