NLSC Podcast Update: Revamp & Future Plans

NLSC Podcast

Regular listeners of the NLSC Podcast will have no doubt noticed that we’ve missed posting a show these past couple of weeks. While it was our intention to be consistent in producing shows after missing several weeks last year, we’ve decided to revamp the podcast, and have taken some time off accordingly.

One reason we want to change up the format – aside from moving with the times and ensuring that we’re producing a show that’s enjoyable to listen to – is that it doesn’t lend itself well to times when news is slow, such as it is now. While I anticipate still having some form of news segments, and we’ll obviously cover the preview season in depth, we’ve found that outside of significant patches or big new content being pushed through, it gets very repetitive talking about the weekly updates. That’s not fun for us, which in turn doesn’t result in a good show for you.

To that end, we’d like to focus on talking about topics and issues that are relevant to the basketball gaming community. We have some deep dive discussions in mind, where we’d spend a majority of the episode having a roundtable discussion about a specific topic. We’re also looking to line up more special guests and interviews, in an effort to make the NLSC Podcast as fun, interesting, and informative as possible.

With that in mind, we’re interested in your suggestions for the topics that you’d like us to discuss, as well as guests you’d like us to try reaching out to. We’d like to build up a bank of topics that we can cover week in and week out, though as I noted, we’ll also devote episodes to breaking news (especially during the preview season). If you do have any suggestions, feel free to hit us up in the comments, as well as on Twitter and Facebook, and here in the NLSC Forum.

As always, a big thank you to everyone who continues to tune in to the NLSC Podcast, and has supported the show throughout the years. We’re confident that the revamp will result in a better show that we can release on a consistent schedule. Check out Episode #278 of the NLSC Podcast here if you haven’t yet caught it, and if you’re listening to us through services such as iTunes, please consider leaving us a review and helping spread the word about the show! If all goes well, Episode #279 should be out later this week.

NLSC Podcast Returns in 2019; Feedback Wanted!

NLSC Podcast

As we haven’t posted a new episode of the NLSC Podcast since December 9th and will be taking a further break over the holiday season, I wanted to post a bulletin letting our listeners know that the show will return in 2019. We should be back on the air with Episode #269 either the first or second week or January. I’ll be sure to post a further bulletin closer to the date.

It’s been a bit of a rough year for the NLSC Podcast, compared to our other original content. We’ve ended up missing far more weeks than we’d like, due to a combination of scheduling issues, illness, technical problems, and burnout. That last issue in particular is one that we’re hoping to address moving forward, not only by taking a break over the holidays, but also in potentially changing our approach to the show.

2019 will mark the eighth year of the NLSC Podcast. We’ve made a few changes to the format and our approach over the years, but we’d like to make sure that we’re keeping things fresh and putting out an entertaining product. To that end, we’re interested in feedback from our listeners, specifically:

  • Ideal show length.
  • Ideal release day.
  • Whether you like multiple topics/segments, or would prefer us to focus on just one or two topics.
  • Whether or not you like the news and reactions segments as-is, or would prefer a quick recap with select focus on the most important topics (or no news at all).
  • Your interest in content regarding our modding community.
  • Your interest in other segments and potential new segments (Our Week in Basketball gaming, Mailbag/Q&A, Fact of the Week, games with the hosts, tips and tricks, etc).
  • Whether you like the NBA discussion or would prefer us to just stick to video games.
  • Any other feedback you have about the NLSC Podcast.

We greatly appreciate any input moving forward! Feel free to leave your feedback in the comments section below, as well as here in the NLSC Forum.

A huge thanks for your support of the NLSC Podcast throughout 2018. We’re looking forward to coming back with a refreshed (and possibly revamped) podcast about basketball video games and our community in 2019!

NLSC Podcast

It’s been a while since we’ve put out a call for topic suggestions and mailbag questions for the NLSC Podcast.

NLSC Podcast Episode #171 Mailbag Call

NLSC Podcast

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, our digital broadcasting streak is set to continue this week with Episode #171 of the NLSC Podcast! With the NBA 2K17 preview season being so slow, there’s plenty of room on the docket for topic suggestions and mailbag questions.

As such, is there anything you’d like to hear us discuss on this week’s episode? We’ll certainly consider any and all suggestions, though we do ask that you try to keep them along the lines of our core content (NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball gaming), community related topics and activities (site history, modding), and real basketball. After all, that’s what most people are coming to the NLSC for, and based on previous suggestions, what most people want to hear us discuss.

With that being said, if you do have any topic suggestions or mailbag questions for us this week, be sure to post them in the comments section below, as well as in this thread in the NLSC Hub section of the Forum. You can also hit us up with any suggestions via our Facebook and Twitter; be sure to connect with us there, if you haven’t already!

NLSC Podcast Episode #167 Mailbag Call

NLSC Podcast

It’s that time of the year when news is a little slow as we’re still at least a few weeks away from getting interesting details on NBA 2K17, and player movement has slowed down after the initial burst of free agent signings. Nevertheless, we do have a few things to talk about in this week’s NLSC Podcast, including new rosters for NBA Live 16, and what we’ve been up to in 2K Pro-Am.

That definitely leaves room on the docket to cover other topics though, so as usual, I’m putting out a call for any and all topic suggestions and mailbag questions. As always, we’ll consider any suggestions that are made, but we would prefer to focus on topics that are related to our core content (NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball video games), our community, modding, and the real NBA. We figure that’s the content that most people come to the NLSC for, so it’ll make for the most relevant discussion on the Podcast.

With that being said…is there anything you’d like to hear us talk about this week? If so, let us know in the comments section below, or post in this thread in the NLSC Hub section of the Forum. You can also hit us up with any suggestions via our Facebook and Twitter; be sure to connect with us there, if you haven’t already.

Episode #167 of the NLSC Podcast should be released at the regular time this week, so stay tuned!

NLSC Podcast Episode #166 Mailbag Call

NLSC Podcast

With every getting back to normal after our server move, Episode #166 of the NLSC Podcast should be out at the regular time this week. As such, I’m putting out an early call for any and all topic suggestions and mailbag questions for the next show.

We’ll have our regular chatter about our past week of basketball gaming, as well as the latest offseason news – including Kevin Durant’s big decision – but there’s definitely room on the docket for more topics. If there’s something you’d like to hear us talk about that’s related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, basketball gaming in general, the real NBA, or the community, please let us know! We will consider other topics, but generally speaking, we would prefer to keep the show centred around our core content.

NLSC Podcast Out Later This Week

NLSC Podcast

Our server move will take just a little longer to complete, but we’re in the home stretch. As a result, Episode #165 of the NLSC Podcast will likely be released a little later than usual this week. We will be recording the show very soon however, so if there’s anything in particular you’d like us to talk about, we’re still taking suggestions. Since the Forum is still out of action, you can hit us up with any topic suggestions and mailbag questions via Facebook and Twitter.

As usual, we’ll consider any and all suggestions, but we do ask that you keep them along the lines of our core content – NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball video gaming – as well as related topics such as the real NBA, modding, and site history. As I’ve said before, we figure that’s why most people visit the NLSC, and tune in to the NLSC Podcast, so that’s the stuff we’d prefer to focus on talking about.

A huge thank you once again to everyone who continues to tune in to the NLSC Podcast each week, and send in topic suggestions. We greatly appreciate the support! Tune in to Episode #164 here if you haven’t caught it already, and don’t forget that you can also find us on iTunes and Stitcher.

NLSC Podcast Episode #163 Mailbag Call

NLSC Podcast

Man, it feels like the days and weeks are just flying by this year! As such, it’s come time for me to put out a call for any and all topic submissions and mailbag questions for Episode #163 of the NLSC Podcast. We have a couple of topics on the docket already, but there’s definitely room for more, so if there’s anything you’d like to hear us talk about this week, please let us know ASAP.

As usual, I’ll clarify that while we will consider any and all suggestions, we do ask that you try to keep them along the lines of our core content – NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball video games – as well as related areas of interest such as the NBA and real basketball, our modding community, and site history. We figure those are the common interests that most of us share, but if you do have any other suggestions, please let us know. The worst that’ll happen is that we’ll tell you we don’t really have anything to say about it!

Having said that, do you have any topics in mind for this week’s NLSC Podcast? If so, let us have them in the comments section below, or in this thread in the NLSC Hub section of the Forum. You can also hit us up via our Facebook and Twitter; if you haven’t connected with us on social media yet, now’s as good a time as any.

NLSC Podcast Episode #162 Mailbag Call

NLSC Podcast

This is a last call for any and all topic suggestions and mailbag questions for Episode #162 of the NLSC Podcast! We’ll be recording the show a day earlier this week, so if there’s anything specific that you’d like us to talk about in the next episode, please let us know ASAP!

As usual, we ask that you try to keep suggestions along the lines of our core content and other subjects that are relevant to our community: NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball gaming in general, the real NBA, modding, and site history. We will give consideration to other topics, but we figure that most people come here for basketball gaming content, and those other related topics tend to be the most common interests that we all share. We’d also like to avoid covering the same topics too often – unless there’s a new and interesting development, of course – so you might want to glance back in the archives if you’ve missed some recent shows.

With that said…do you have any suggestions? If so, please let us know in the comments section below, or in this thread in the NLSC Hub section of the Forum. You can also submit topics and questions via our Facebook and Twitter; be sure to connect with us on social media if you haven’t already.
