Steven and Ed discuss #geoweirdness, a series of content "threads" that OpenCage creates on mastodon to engage with their audience and promote their geocoding API. They talk about the challenges of marketing a geocoding API and the need to create content that is interesting and shareable. They discuss the different types of threads, including country-specific threads and threads about specific topics that span all countries. Steven cites the example of the recent thread about the European football championship and the changing borders of countries. From there the discussion moves to #fridaygeotrivia, a live geo trivia game Ed organized on the final Friday of the month on mastodon. He discusses the difficulty of coming up with new topics and questions. Finally, our hosts play a quick round of geo trivia, asking each other questions about football and geography. Ed and Steven encourage listeners to check out the geoWeirdness threads and participate in the geotrivia quizzes.

The Geomob podcast is hosted by Ed Freyfogle, co-founder of OpenCage, and Steven Feldman, of KnowWhere Consulting.

Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
