Episode Info

Episode Info: We are an awesome community of DVC Members! Community Hall Podcast by My DVC Points would like to thank the following companies for sponsoring our shows. DVC Resale Market – Industry Leader in DVC ResalesDVC Rental Store – DVC Point Rental and Swap PartnerIncredible Vacation Homes – Luxury Vacation Homes for Family GatheringsBe Our Guest Vacations – Travel Agent for DVC Point Swap ProgramsMonera Financial – Exclusively Financing DVC ContractsMy DVC Points VIP Producer Club – our Patreon Supporters What’s our vision?  Our weekly live show is a creation of the community. We’re here to start a conversation. We’re successful when we bring up a topic, and the audience members start conversing online with each other.Creating an internet show replicates the discussions that members would have if they met up at the Community Halls, at the EPCOT lounge or Top of the World.A key difference is that we have regulars. You can run into the same people each week.We try to lead conversations about DVC membership that the community is already having.Allow members/ Disney enthusiasts to share stories and connect to like-minded people.Financially speaking, I personally think DVC is an entirely different product than every other timeshare out there.  When Alicia joined the show, she gave me one of the highest compliments. Timeshares have such a horrible reputation. We create a mindset of pride in being a DVC member. It’s like its OK to be out of the closet on DVC pride.DVC has an amazing Disney community around it. That community supports a vibrant resale and rental market.  The Backstory of the Community Hall Live Show Back in late 2018, I started doing live shows inside the My DVC Points Community group. This was a friend and me.January 2019, we started going public to our Facebook page.By the Spring of 2019, I developed this vision for being an online community hall. A weekly show focused on DVC members’ opinions. A completely different format. We don’t necessarily focus so much on what the hosts think, but what the members think. It’s a live interactive conversation.I also realized that we needed a slightly bigger team, so I started recruiting some more regulars.That’s when Shannon Ford and Alicia Kolenda joined. We realized having a diversity of people on camera makes better content.  By May of 2019, I committed $900 towards the software to run the show on a trial basis. Sometime after this, Mary Anne and Samantha started joining the shows.In March 2019, Gina joined the team as a producer. Shortly Vicky joined the core team.I started putting the show in the regular podcast feed but never felt right about putting a live barely edited show in a highly produced, highly edited podcast show.The Patreon program started to take off, and I decided to move the podcast replay as a Patreon exclusive.May of 2020, I look down and realize, we have a pretty full staff. We’re running shows with thousands of views each week....
