CHUCK: When I speak robot, I sound like R2-D2.
CHUCK: Hey everybody and welcome to Episode 74 of The Freelancers’ Show! This week on our panel, we have Curtis MacHale.
CURTIS: Good day!
CHUCK: Eric Davis.
CHUCK: Reuven Lerner.
REUVEN: Hi everyone!
CHUCK: I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.tv. This week, we’re going to be talking about "Email Lists". One thing I want to say before we get started, one of the reasons I do this show is to help me kind of get business.

ERIC: I have a little less than 700 on my main list right now; I have the dashboard in front of me.
REUVEN: I don’t run a list for my work, but I run a community list that is about 2700 people on it.
CHUCK: Well, if you’re talking about something like Ruby Rogues Parley, then I have one.[Laughter]
CHUCK: I don’t really think of it that way. I don’t go and — I participate in as opposed to send out updates or however you want to talk about —
ERIC: Yeah, the exclusive person on it.
CHUCK: Yeah. And maybe we can talk about those lists, too. But I was thinking more along the lines of the newsletter lists or the marketing lists or whatever you want to call them.
CURTIS: My main one up until real recently was from my first book that I wrote about becoming a WordPress development professional. I’ve sent out a few emails on that,
