WFNY Podcast 2012-11-14 – Craig and Jon discuss Marlins firesale and what it means for baseball

The cool thing about the podcast is that when something happens and even before I have a chance to outline the issue in my brain, I can send Jon an email begging him to talk to me about it on Skype. Jon, who has a nightmare travel day and wasn’t going to be able to

Bye week banter with a case of election hangover. Craig and Rick talk about some of the following.

WFNY Podcast – 2012-10-30 – Martin Rickman from SBNation and Scott previews Cavs

Last night I got a chance to talk to Cleveland resident, SBNation writer and twitter staple Martin Rickman. (@martinrickman) It was a fascinating conversation about being a blogger or post-blogger, parody Twitter accounts and being a “real person” online. Don’t tune out too quickly because I also tacked on a Cavaliers preview with Scott. Some

Another first. This time, I spoke with Jacob about the Browns and the Indians. The Browns are coming off of their loss to the Indianapolis Colts and the Indians are still working on publicizing the Terry Francona hire.

WFNY Podcast – 2012-10-20 – Talking Colts with a Colts fan

When you write sports at a website like WFNY for a while you get to know your own kinds of fans. As many of you know my house is divided from a football perspective because my wife grew up in Indianapolis. I spared you my wife being on the podcast, but my brother-in-law is very

WFNY Podcast – 2012-10-17 – Browns ownership reflecting on Indians ownership

I got Jon on the line for the first time on a day where the Browns were the top news story. So, naturally we infused the Browns news and talk with in-depth Indians discussion. For real though, it was an interesting conversation about what the sale of the Browns has done to the perception of

The Skype calls continue to make podcasting a nice experience as I was able to get Andrew on the “Subway Fresh Take Hotline” for a nice chat about a variety of topics. Honestly I think Andrew and I could do four hours a day because we both never seem to run out of things to

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-27 – Craig and Scott preview Browns vs. Ravens

You want the short version? There is no good reason to pick the Browns to win Thursday. We already all new that. That doesn’t mean the Browns can’t win per se, but if you predict them to do so you’re praying more than predicting. More specifically, we talked about… Mohamed Massaquoi missing the game Alex

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-21 – Craig and Rick Preview Browns vs Bills

Two podcasts in one week? Why not! This time Rick and I talked about the Browns, specifically the matchup this week with the Bills. Two inconsistent teams on a collision course at CBS on Lake Erie!

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-19 – Craig and TD talk Tribe and Browns

Pay no attention to the opening comment that I haven’t done a podcast opener sound clip yet. I threw one together very quickly. It will work as a placeholder for now until and unless I come up with something better. It was good to get TD in to talk a bit. TD is never at

WFNY Podcast – 2012-09-05 – Browns and “Fan Mail”

This week was again Rick and Craig mostly talking about the Browns. Again, despite my monitoring, Rick seemed a bit low in the mix. It is totally listenable, but we’ll keep working on making it better. Alex Smith is a captain for week one Trent Richardson is really important (duh!) Critical emails and how we

WFNY Podcast – 2012-08-30 – The Return

The WFNY Podcast makes a triumphant return. The opening is absolutely ridiculous now, as you’ll hear. The highlight clips have LeBron and Braylon Edwards! This is the last time you’ll hear it, but we thought it would be funny to play it one last time. As for the rest, we’re Browns heavy. Topics include: Rick
