Our weekly Flash Briefing through Alexa and other typical pod-catchers allows listeners to get a short newscast as only The Wilder Ride can deliver. Our focus is on podcasting news as well as entertainment and other “geeky” subjects relevant to our own show. We created this weekly mini-podcast with humor in mind, interspersing the news items with a lot of sound bites. The news is still relevant (nothing made up), but the delivery is quick and meant to be less than 10 minutes. We can also adapt this weekly briefing if another news outlet, podcast, blog or vlog wants to use it. We would provide a customized open and/or closing for them, so it would flow with their format. If you are an entertainment minded show, we’d love for you to consider adding The Wilder Ride’s Flash Briefing as a recurring segment.
Also, if you have relevant news you’d like us to consider adding to our weekly news segment, simply email us at [email protected] with your news. Keep in mind, we cannot use everything, but we will do all we can to include as much as possible.
Since our Flash Briefing was initially created to be compatible with your Alexa enabled devices, adding our Flash Briefing is as simple as 1-2-3:
- Open the Alexa app on your phone or tablet.
- Search the Skills section for “The Wilder Ride.”
- Activate the skill.
That’s it! Then all you have to do is say, “Alexa, play my Flash Briefing,” and away we go. Our newscast is designed to come out first thing Monday morning to start your workweek off with a little fun, humor and information.
