In a move that would rival eating Cream Of Wheat on a Tuesday morning on the excitement scale, I am proud to announce I’m in the process of getting my ducks in a row to start a podcast. Such a move is bound to do absolutely nothing to the British markets (I hear that’s a thing). When I tried to contact figure skating legend Nancy Kerrigan to get her input on this monumental shift in the podcasting world, her answer simply was, “WHY!? WHY!?”
I bet you’re asking to yourself, “Well Brian, what’s this groundbreaking podcast entail exactly?” Well, using my best George Costanzian “show about nothing” sales pitch, it’s a podcast drafting random nonsense. No, not the drawing stuff on a fancy table, but rather the frozen envelope David Stern variety of drafting. I intend on having anywhere from 2-4 people on with me and we’ll have a topic and some guidelines and boom, off we go. Example: Topic of discussion is “best White Sox hitter of all time”, which I mean obviously the #1 pick is Jeff Keppinger. Depending on topic, we’ll do 4-6 rounds, maybe more if we’re having a good time and I’ll do a poll on the Twitter machines afterwards asking who “won” the draft. Their prize for winning? A Paul Hollywoodesque handshake from yours truly. This was something I used to just sit down with buddies and do for shits and giggles and it turned into some of the most bizarre, engaging, hilarious conversations I’ve ever had. I’m hoping that will be the case this time, but in podcast form. Let’s be real here folks, what’s more engaging than a suburban 41 year old with minimal education and a dream?
Jokes aside here, I’m looking forward to getting dug in and doing this. I’d like to thank Yumper, Svo, Aloha Mr. Hand and KFidds for giving me a space in their world to do this. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a VERY long time and your help getting my ass in gear to do this will forever be appreciated.
If anyone has any ideas for topics and/or wants to become part of the rotating group of ruffians tasked with drafting randomness, please do not hesitate to shoot me a line on twitter or here at The Tainted Glove.
