A Summer World Tour

The custom in the independent media game is to do something to recognize milestones like anniversaries or certain show numbers. July not only marked the two year anniversary of this show, but gave us the 100th episode as well. I did not acknowledge the anniversary, as it fell on the holiday break. I also forgot all about it until I was putting this post together and looked it up. As far as this milestone, I could not think of anything special to do, so I just stuck with the normal program.

Showing up is the big challenge for this sort of venture. Most podcasters and vloggers start strong, but after a few months start missing shows, posting late and eventually quit before their first year. The same is true of bloggers. In some cases the grind of sticking to a schedule is the issue, but for others it is simply that they run out of material. They also get disappointed by not becoming a star right away. Once the novelty wears off, they start to lose interest and eventually quit doing it.

That’s the trick though. When I started the blog, I had no idea what I wanted to do with it, so I tried a bunch of different things and kept at it until I found a style and process that I enjoyed. That took about a year. Then I noticed the audience starting to tick up ever so slowly. I think it was late in year two that some people with big followings noticed me and started linking my posts. That brought lots of traffic and the site grew like a weed ever since. Showing up eventually pays off.

The same pattern has emerged with the podcast. I had done some interviews and people suggested I try doing a podcast. I had no idea how it worked or what I would do, so I just started doing stuff and figuring it out. Two years in and I’m still trying new stuff to both mix things up and to figure out what works for me. Episode one had a grand total of 300 listens. Now a show gets thousands of listens the first day. I have no way of knowing how many people listen via Google and Apple.

The point here, is if you are planning to do a blog, create a YouTube channel or some other type of on-line activity, sticking with it is the main challenge. Eventually you figure out what works for you and in the process you build an audience. That audience will tell you what works and what does not work. Eventually, the process becomes natural and something you enjoy doing every day, even on the bad days. For me, writing and podcasting is a shelter from the storm.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below.


Support the media that supports you. While all of us toiling in the fields of dissident media are motivated by a sense of duty, having a place to sleep and food on the table still requires money. Five bucks a month is not a lot to ask. Or, you can send money to me at: Z Media LLC P.O. Box 432 Cockeysville, MD 21030-0432. I now have a PayPal setup for those who prefer that method to donate. Thank you for your support!

I don’t suppose you could give us any details about how you host your blog. I’ve been toying with the idea of starting one, and of course I have the obvious concerns about being doxxed, or DDoSed, and so on. (And sticking to a schedule. And not running out of material. But I can’t expect anyone else to help with those…).

So I’m not the only one who doesn’t understand what the hell the Brits and we are trying to accomplish with Iran. The Brits should recognize that they don’t have a Navy that can project power – so shut up and stop causing trouble.

Leaving the Iran thing aside, the size and/or capabilities of the Royal Navy is really not the issue. The real problem is attitude. No-one in their right mind would fight for Britain any more knowing that win, lose or draw, our own government will unleash the “war crimes” dogs on them when they return.

Big thanks and congrats! Not sure how I stumbled upon the Z-Man but glad that I did. Z fills the niche between Sailer’s Boomer Debate Team – which keeps hoping to convince David Brooks types to lay off the white goys – and Vox Day’s Countdown to Armageddon.

This is where dissidents are trying to figure out what to actually do on the ground day to day. That’s what we need most and Z – and the commentators – are doing more than any other site to work that out. Big thanks to all.

Agreed, but can’t help but to notice that the commenters here are in many respects more vocal/strident/advanced wrt to certain core dissident issues concerning race and HBD than our host. Heretofore, I’ve given the benefit of the doubt wrt such reticence to perhaps a (wise) strategy in keeping a lowered profile in the heavily censored blogosphere. Perhaps our host would comment.

Citizen of a Silly Country

Just a guess, but I’d suspect Z wants us focused on recruitment (and he’s right). Recruiting normies takes a gentle hand. They can only handle so much as a time.

That’s why Sailer remains a very important figure. He may frustrate many of us (myself included) with his unwillingness to move forward, but he’s great for getting normies to start thinking our issues.

We should all try to remember where our brains were five, ten or even 20 years ago. We likely weren’t ready for a full on dosage of race reality and its political and cultural implications. Z knows that.

I’ve always been impressed and grateful to Z for his willingness to allow unpopular comments, expressed in civil language, which certainly hurt the broader appeal of his site. He’s a prince. And we party at his house when he’s overseas.

Unlike the American Centennial, which marked the downfall of America 1.0, the Z-blog Centennial marks major progress toward a future summit. I first encountered Z on KMG’s “Grace & Steele” when I was falling from neocon grace. His third position between what would later be called the Alt-Lite and the Anglin/Spencer Right has turned out to be a pretty comfortable ideological and cultural space, and I plan to stick around. Thanks for opening that gate, Z. Your dependabity in both the schedule and quality of your posting shows a balance of talent, audience appreciation and work ethic that only a… Read more »

I remember the old “assimilation” story well, My parents would introduce the kids to new people at church who escaped from wherever and couldn’t be more grateful. Their best friends were Armenians whose families got out of Turkey in the nick of time. My school Guidance Counselor literally ran out of Hungary when the Soviets invaded. All assimilated with gratitude,

Now I’m supposed to assimilate to weird strangers who can’t stop bitching about me and the U.S. I can’t imagine a better way to generate resentment towards immigrants and eventually get the borders closed.

Drake. You touch on a point I’ve pondered upon before. Prior to the last few decades, I too ran into the occasional immigrant, usually with the same story of fleeing an oppressive situation. And it was always in the context of a success story. Made everyone feel good about themselves. Lots of Christian churches would adopt them like pets. So I asked myself, why all the problems now? My conclusion is that in those times, wholesale admittance of any and all was not de rigor, and numbers were limited. Also there was a selection bias wrt the level of immigrant—higher… Read more »

This kind of trolling is either simple emotional masturbation or a gross misallocation of trolling capital. On a broad spectrum forum like Twitter this kind of Louise Mensching might (((trick))) a normie or two, but to waste time tossing this wet kleenex take around here is simply a waste of good cuck-bux. Know your audience, troll, or enjoy the fap.

@Kevin Knox. What!? Albert Einstein said: “Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.” Here’s my advice to everyone one this website. The ideologically bound aren’t interested in the facts, just pushing the narrative. Politically Correct, Postmodernist indoctrination has warped their perceptions completely and for good. They are simply not capable of distinguishing the difference between their doctrinaire fantasies from straightforward reality. It is an absolute waste of our precious time and energy to try and reason with these kinds of people. In fact, they love it when you try, so they… Read more »

I wasn’t aware that the fundamental assumption regarding our evolutionary backstory— that all modern humans outside of Africa, are descended from a single group of people who left out of Africa many years ago— has been seriously questioned. I know there’s been some questioning regarding the chronology— was it 50,000 years ago, 60,000 years ago, or perhaps even much longer? And it’s clear that our ancestors weren’t the first proto-human or archaic-human group to escape Africa— Neanderthals and other groups preceded us, and there was some inter-breeding between Neanderthals and our homo sapien ancestors: many European people, myself included, possess… Read more »

That conclusion leads to unfortunate statements. A former British immigration officer told me that, yes, he was aware we all are descended from Somalis.

LittleBill
Guest
LittleBill

That’s amusing, but not accurate.

Genetically, the largest gap dividing various human groups, is the gap between those whose ancestors left out of Africa ~ 50-60,000 years ago; and those— like present-day Somalis— whose ancestors remained in Africa.

So no: we’re not descended from the Somalis. Rather, we and the Somalis occupy parallel branches on the evolutionary tree: we and the Somalis are both descended from the proto-humans who inhabited East Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago.

Well, we appreciate what you’re doing. It can get pretty lonely for people who see what’s going on, but don’t have anybody around them who also see it. For Johnny-come-latelies to your site, some kind of “greatest hits” would be useful. You wouldn’t have to do it all at once. Heck, you could even make a placeholder post linking to a “classic” article on Saturday or Sunday when, it appears, you sometimes take a day off. (How do you create so much content, anyway?) Having once worked in “respectable” publishing, I know that publishers are desperate for anybody with any… Read more »

Great show, Z. Isn’t it amazing how there are American cities WORSE than Cape Town? It’s hard to imagine that Detroit was once called the Paris of the West. Today it is just a giant run down black dystopia of crime and violence where white boys get beat to death over a fender bender. If our elites had any sense, the African population explosion wouldn’t be happening, because we wouldn’t be feeding them, and even if it were, would be entirely their problem. We wouldn’t need to “do” anything. I would forgive Trump if he had brought in the usual… Read more »

David Frum (Atlantic, July 24): “Jews have been elevated to a special protected category [in the Trump administation]…This special exemption poses a moral quandary for communally concerned Jews quite unlike anything in our collective experience.”

OK, we’re stealing that one. We’re “communally concerned Whites.” Downright heartwarming that is. Looking forward to seeing it in one of your future posts Z.

Z. Congrats. Catching up here; I politely take exception that Trump has been outmaneuvered by everyone in DC. For one thing he bloodlessly defeated the same coup that bought down Nixon (and Mossadegh among others) and avoided so far the ensuing Civil War. Trump doesn’t like Blood. Some here may disagree (like me). But his purpose has prevailed. Iran; it is perhaps difficult to understand for outsiders to governance and war the pressures the modern President must withstand to avoid war. In particular a Republican and especially Trump (who ah until this week was facing a coup and needed military… Read more »

Never forget that Boris Johnson was part of the cabinet, headed by David Cameron, whose intelligence service set up the scheme to unseat the Trump candidacy. Remember Cameron himself (who was closer to Johnson than he ever was to May) publicly said that Trump was unfit to be President. I don’t have the slightest doubt that Johnson was aware of what was going on at the time. And I presume Trump knows it. Trump needs friends and so was publicly willing to hold his nose and associated with May, but Johnson might be different. Farage, for instance, hates his guts.… Read more »
