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.
