Okay.....there have been some speedbumps along the way but it appears we're finally ready to get to BFTB's first ever podcast. It will be broadcast live at 6:30pm EST (that's 3:30pm Pacific) on Monday, January 4th.
I had originally wanted to do it in between the Chargers/Redskins game but before the Bengals/Jets game. However, BlogTalk Radio (who will be hosting the show) only allows for a certain amount of shows per "timeslot" and that timeslot was all taken up. In the future (as in, after the playoffs are over) the podcast will have a set day and time, and that probably won't be at 3:30pm California time on Monday. For right now though, since all the good slots are booked up for weeks, we're going to play it by ear.
You can join Sam and myself here, and I believe that little widget on the right side of the home page will be able to play the episode once it's started as well (not positive). I recommend coming to the episode's page though, because in addition to taking live callers (the call-in number is on the episode page, but I'll make sure to repeat it during the show) we'll have a live chat room and will be answering questions asked in there as well.
The schedule going forward, in terms of who will be joining me on the podcast, is as follows:
- Week 17 - Sam
- Wild Card Round - Zach
- Divisional Round - Richard Wade
- Championship Round - Jeff
- Pro Bowl Week - ? (Probably Sam again since he'll be the only one without a playoff week)
- Postseason/Super Bowl - Andy
After that I'll decide if I want to keep it a rotation or if I want to try to convince one person to be my full-time on-air partner. Also, while we're on the topic I'll also be doing a podcast with the 619sports guys sometime next week, so keep an eye out for that.
Do you guys have any input/ideas on what to include in the podcast? Things you've heard other guys do that you think is fun or a good idea? Let me know in the comments.
