FAQ

When do you release new shows?

We intend to release a new feature show at least weekly.  We typically publish this content either Sunday evening, or Monday morning Eastern Standard Time, but there is sometimes a delay in the publishing services to iTunes, Stitcher, and other players.

At times we will release special content more than once a week.  Other times our backlog dries up and we may miss a week.

Can I be a guest?

If you have a compelling story to tell, please reach out!  Several of our shows started with a guest asking to be on.  While we do reach out to guests, we feel the love when others ask to be featured 🙂

Can we sponsor a show?

Sure.  Please reach out to one of our board admins for more details.

What is the Agile Uprising?

Agile Uprising is a purpose-built network that focuses on the advancement of the agile mindset and global professional networking between leading agilists. We will remain agnostic of certifying bodies and focus purely on the advancement of the agile craft. Our network will evolve over time, and at the core our online community will remain free to join – forever. We will leverage both traditional and emerging communication and collaboration channels to explore various topics of interest with a direct focus on removing external influences from sponsors, partners and other organizations.

Other than being a guest, how can I get involved?

For starters, consider joining the Agile Uprising Coalition (coalition.agileuprising.com).  Retweet our shows.  Share any show ideas you have.  Or be on the lookout for our SWAG when we have some availible.
