Enter the Podcast
Major announcement to make right about now. Some months ago, the The Disciples of Clyde podcast mentioned the Almanac in an episode on what makes a truly great sports book. We found it sufficiently compelling, irritating, and in some ways correct that we struck up a conversation, stayed in touch, and then came to a momentous decision: We've decided to join forces.
What does this mean? Well, if you were a fan of DoC before, not much will change. Dan and Ken are still the hosts, and will set the tone (which is pretty much in line with what FD's internal phone chats sound like, anyway), hold the editorial reins, and handle production. But if you enjoyed FD on The Sound of Young America, get ready for a regular dose of myself and other FD operatives showing up as featured guests. We'll also have a hand in the musical selections and what myself, Dr. LIC, or Silverbird5000 are coming in to chat about. Also, look forward to guests from inside your computer and beyond, as well as a war of zero forgivance with The Jones.
To get even more nuts and bolts about it, DoC will keep their own site, and post the podcast there, but you'll also be able to find it embedded here. It will also be available on iTunes and in feedy form. Oh, and the official name is "FreeDarko Presents the Disciples of Clyde NBA Podcast," which would be really unwieldy if it didn't sound so much like our book's title. In the future, we'll post music playlists, but we didn't want to busy this post any further. So, without further ado, here's episode 50/1 of FreeDarko Presents the Disciples of Clyde NBA Podcast. Enjoy and remember.
-I wrote a piece for ESPN on why the Thunder won't make the playoffs. It was hard for me to stare one of my favorite teams in the eyes and say it was doomed to fall short, but instead, I think I ended up with a realistic, yet ultimately optimistic, picture of how the Thunder could move forward while maintaining some of their personality. If you've got Insider, you can check out the Bucher column I'm responding to.
-Intense Shoals Unlimited on the current status of Arenas, and why we shouldn't be sick of him quite yet.
