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.

You may think on relishing throwback NBA video games, one per episode or so. In the March 21 episode of the Sports Media with Richard Deitsch podcast ( the host invited one very popular wrestling podcaster who has earned his audience telling what was talked about ~ 20 years ago or so – many used to watch WWE but don’t watch it now. Moreover, these topics are “aging” well, because all episodes benefit from their long tail as to download numbers) In the same March 21 episode Greg Wyshynski (“ESPN On Ice” and more) pointed out that there is definitely a free niche in the NHL podcast field to tell about past seasons. In podcast notes, you may promote your well written throwback articles on the site in accordance to the theme too.

I world prefer your podcast with chatter on recent patches and content updates as usual. There was a pity to see your absence from the Lakers/James hype train whether they make it to the playoffs down the stretch – all NBA media used it to rant all the season about. ^^ You have always been unique discussing Australian players. Right now, Bogut returned to the NBA, Simmons makes his play-off run… There shall be play-off talk.

P.S. While the hiatus, you may visit other pods here and there. Maybe, OP or more.
