E10: The Great Postcard Giveaway


Release Date: 04/02/2018

What if you collected postcards the majority of your life, then woke up one morning and decided to give away all those postcards? One at a time.

That’s what this week’s guest did. Frank Boscoe created an Instagram site where he documents his Great Postcard Giveaway. Frank asks people to DM their address and he sends them a postcard from his collection. Simple as that. One a day until they’re gone.

I became fascinated with Frank’s story as I follwed him on Insta. But when he mentioned he was going to present a PechaKucha talk about his postcard giveaway, I knew I had to hear more.

And am I ever glad I did. You will be, too. Frank is a fascinating guy, and he started out the show with a quiz in the style of Will Shortz that really got me thinking. He also recommends an app — Unfade Pro — that’s taken my postcard photography up a notch. And he created a special version of his PechaKucha talk for Postcardist listeners.
