A few of you may remember last season there was some talk about potentially doing a podcast for the website, focusing on fans' views and what's happening on a matchday etc...

Well, we've finally got off our backsides and put the first episode together before and after last weekend's first home game of the season against Plymouth Argyle.




The first episode is very much a pilot - a work in progress and I suspect it will change a fair bit over the season. It's just me and cufcmike talking and we'd like to get a few more people involved - I know cufcdeano said he'd take part as well and we're going to get CCU on to give his top tips on which fast-food outlets to take L2 managers to for celebratory winning run meals!

A few things to bear in mind....

1) The whole thing is recorded on my smartphone - the quality is actually better than I expected but still not perfect - it was quite windy during some of the pre-match stuff. I might look into purchasing a proper microphone for it.

2) Yes, we did forget to mention Reggie Lambe's goal at half-time!

3) No, there was no (or at least very little) talk of the billionaire. We'll leave off the field stuff to a future episode I'm sure.

I'm not 100% sure when the next episode will be - I might try and do one at Derby away if this was is fairly well received.

At the moment we're using SoundCloud as the host but if anyone knows of a better option, let us know. I'm not sure they have an option to download the file itself.

Any feedback or ideas are appreciated - even if it's to tell us it's shit! Either comment here or you can drop us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Getting a podcast on iTunes is a little bit more complex from the (admittedly basic) research I've done, we'd need to find a way of hosting it cheaply. We might look into that after a few episodes - for now SoundCloud seems the best option.

Really enjoyed this. Thought the analysis was very accurate and fair. I quite like the background noise as well, somewhat added to the experience.

Agree with the above that I would love this to be on iTunes so I can download it rather than needing to stream it (unless I can do this on Sound Cloud and haven't figured it out?). Would listen to this on the way to a game.

Well done and thank you for doing it.

You can download from Soundcloud - there's an icon which is a little arrow pointing into a tray which should do it for you.

iTunes is a total faff for new podcasts, takes a couple of weeks for them to be greenlit (quite understandable) and the submission portal is a bit temperamental.

Fighting with it myself on my own venture which anyone who likes baseball (unlikely and niche!) might enjoy:


Agree with others - Lee and Mike's pod is great. Amazing that the quality is so good with just a phone.

Really well done. Thought the sound quality was absolutely fine. I enjoyed the chat, knowledgeable and interesting.

I too would like a downloadable version. If this isn't possible going forward, I think it might be better doing 2 half hour slots or even 3 x 20 minute slots as it's often not possible to listen to a long broadcast al once but its good to be able to listen to a complete segment.

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone, much appreciated. I expected at least one person to tell us we were talking shit :lol:

Forgot to mention, we haven't got a proper name for the podcast yet - any suggestions are welcomed!

We've added a new sub-Forum where all the Podcast Threads will be moved to, say a week after publication, so there's an easy access library...

Haven't listened yet but well done on getting it going. Always difficult at the start but sounds like you've done a good job.

On the point about where to host it, I think if you create an RSS feed and then let people know where it is, they will be able to download from apps like PodcastAddict and all the ones that are popular on Android. I think. No solution if anybody is insistent on downloading through the iTunes system though, not worth the hassle.

If I mind on, I'll give it a listen when I go for a shite in the morning.

How long's it on for?

I'll give it a listen when I have more time. Is there an option to bleep out swear words for when MRF rocks up? :-)

I'm guessing most folk have heard the sound of their own voice, cringeworthy to say the least.

Well done guys, I really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next instalment. The intro tune was a great choice too and the audio in general was pretty good quality but there were moments I found it hard to make out but I knackered my hearing in the army so could just be me. Thanks for putting the effort in I hope this does become a regular thing so keep up the good work. :cheer:

Edited to add suggestion for title: The Brunton Bugle

Lovely stuff

I know that the football has to be the main focus, but surprised you didn´t at least mention the fall of Souliopolis :pinch:

Kevin Henderson Blues Experience would be my pick for a name

We still find it too hard to talk about - I can't even walk past the ice cream isle in ASDA in Bootle without getting a lump in my throat at the sight of the Vienettas :(

We all feel that way merseysideo. But the problem you have is that you've now entered the world of hardcore journalism. John Humphreys was known to be 'bloody gutted' about the fall of soul but it didn't stop the today programme covering it at length.

The fans need to know your thoughts on how the fall will affect players known to be soul loyalists eg Luke Joyce

I can now admit it was the Seaton PPF Portsmouth branch doing the booing.

Cheers everyone for the feedback on the first episode - it's been listened to 358 times since it was uploaded which is a lot more than I expected!

Comments have been positive but some good solid constructive criticism from others which is appreciated.

Looking at doing the next episode for the Derby game on Tuesday night - topic of discussion will of course be the League Cup - I'll start a thread asking for any ideas on what you want us to talk about. Won't be cufcmike on this episode as he can't make it due to work, but hoping to have a capable replacement for him!

Listened to this a couple of days ago. Great, and definitely something you should continue doing, though I appreciate the time and effort it probably takes - sound quality was good, wouldn't worry about trying to make it any better, or using different equipment. Mike should have a "you know" tin, with all proceeds going to charity :lol: . I think the number of 'you know' stood out more because he'd mentioned it, so I already had it on mind before listening.

Happy to help out as/when required - my voice will probably send folk to sleep mind - there must be something about the sound of your own voice as Wukkie says! Won't be there on Tuesday night mind - can't get the afternoon off work :(
