Oops! Didn’t realize how long it had been since my last post roundup. Now that I have been made aware of it, I am correcting that issue. Between finishing at Denison and continuing the hunt for a job, I have been writing less than usual. I still have my Awful Announcing podcast reviews and I’m back writing some for It’s Pronounced Lajaway, which means you’ll all be able to read my scorching Indians takes for the next couple months.
4/17 – Podcast Review: The Ringer MLB Show – Awful Announcing
I like this show but didn’t like that it was exclusive to TuneIn for the month of April. Luckily, that is no longer the case, which means one of the deepest baseball podcasts there is automatically downloads to my phone again.
5/1 – Podcast Review: The Leisuremen – Awful Announcing
I started watching/listening to The Dan Patrick Show in college. The Danettes are an amazing supporting cast, so when two of them started hosting their own radio show and podcast, it was only a matter of time before I reviewed it.
5/15 – Podcast Review: Against All Odds with Cousin Sal – Awful Announcing
This show has gotten better since I reviewed it, which I predicted would happen. It’s always good for a few laughs and some nearly unbelievable sports betting stories.
6/1 – Podcast Review: The Tony Kornheiser Show – Awful Announcing
It’s nice when a Big Red Sports Talk interview can help my AA work, and this cut runs even deeper since Marc “Nigel” Sterne is a fellow Denison alum. This show was suggested to me for months and I didn’t have time while at Denison to properly review the impressive amount of content this show produces each week. Now that I am a graduate, I was able to cross this show off my list.
Also of note, this was hands down the nicest and best feedback I have ever received on one of these podcast reviews. Sure, people disagreed with some of my points and opinions, but a lot of the “Littles” who love the show were in strong agreement that my review was starkly accurate. Weird how the internet works sometimes.
That pesky Cleveland baseball team needs to figure it out and take hold of the division all of the pundits expected them to run away with. I think they will figure it out soon, but going to be a lot of head shaking and frustration until then.
I’ll have a new podcast review up on 6/15. Aside from that, who knows? I’ll be sure to let you know once I do…and I’ll probably spoof “The Decision” on a future podcast to make the announcement.
