“Hello, WP!”

“Hello, WP!” follows Micah, a new user getting started with WordPress. What begins as a simple look at what it takes to setup a new site becomes an unexpected deep dive into the relatively small community powering nearly a third of the internet.

The majority of us just fell into WordPress. It was a simple solution. Most WordPress users are oblivious to the community that powers it, the volunteers that surround it, or the massive changes coming in 5.0.

It’s not until after we encounter our first plugin conflict or white screen of death that we find ourselves lost in an alternate WordPress universe… like a web-developer Comic-Con, complete with superhero mascots, 20-foot balloon floats and Wapuu plushies.

We slowly became pros in our own right and quickly forget what it’s like to be new.

And while you can always be learning you can never be “new” again.

“Hello, WP!” was created to bridge the gap. It’s a podcast for everyone, from the new user to the WordPress Professional. A show that gives a fresh look at what it’s like finding new products, services, and people you can trust.

“Hello, Gutenberg!”

As a special bonus we’re pulling back the curtain on Gutenberg, WordPress 5.0 and hopefully providing a fresh perspective on the changes coming to WordPress.
