    RedsZone podcast

    I talked to Boss-Hog about this idea, and he suggested I put it here.

    I've really wanted to hear a good Reds podcast, but there's nothing out there right now that excites me. A solid podcast should be in depth, but also infuse humor, pop culture, and trivia, and you should really get to know the hosts and have some reason to keep coming back every time. Think Bill Simmons nationally or Matt Jones on UK sports where I live. They're bright sports guys, but their real power comes from personality and putting fun above all else.

    I've been interested in starting something like this for a while, and now that I'm involved in the ORG here, I've found that there are some brilliant and very personable Reds fans round these parts that could really flourish in a podcast setting. I'd love to have a few of you join me in recording a few of these to see what works and what doesn't. It would be over Skype and, even if nothing ever comes of it, would be a fun chance to interact with other Reds fans. I'll take the best of what we have and put them together as kind of a pilot episode to get feedback from folks.

    If you would be interested in giving this a shot, PM me and we can swap e-mails and figure some things out. It'd be ideal if you are able to banter well, be funny, know your stuff to some degree, and are willing to roll with the punches. Don't worry about your skill level in any of these areas--I'm not where I want to be, either--but I just want to try. If it works out, it could be a seriously fun project with potential for bigger things. Thanks, guys and gals.

    Also I should say, if you have any ideas for what you would like to hear from a podcast like this, feel free to post it on this thread or PM me. I'll take absolutely anything I can get.

    I hate the sound of my voice, but I love to talk about baseball. Been a part of plenty of podcasts and even hosted my own show for about 8 months two years ago for another minor league website (FirstInning.com).

    I've been kicking around the idea of doing a podcast about heavy metal for awhile, actually. I'd be willing to get my feet wet sitting in on a baseball show, but I don't think I could carry a show on my own.
    numbersinthereds.blogspot.com I actually made a post on 7/24/14. I promise.

    You were definitely in mind when I was thinking of contributors, my friend. I'm still figuring out tech stuff, but I think I'm almost ready. I'll PM you details.

    That's great--no carrying needed. I'll add you to the list.

    Re: RedsZone podcast

    I started one a few years back. I asked Boss and others about doing a Redszone theme and tying it in to the board. It was not a fit at the time I guess as mine and others efforts to see that through were rebuffed. I hope you get this off the ground. I ended up doing mine apart from Redszone with Ken Griffey Sr. And had several MLB guests. It was a lot of fun!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    There are some real humorous fellers on here. Raisor, Paintmered and The Baumer come to mind from my time lurking.
