DDF Podcast
« on: August 24, 2015, 12:37:36 AM »
I had an idea recently for a very entertaining, informative and helpful podcast: a weekly "DDF Podcast", which would feature intelligent discussions about the highlights (and lowlights) of the past week's action on DDF.

It would be hosted by two avid DDFers who spent considerable on DDF each day, can talk smoothly, interestingly and know how to put together good content for a show.

It would be relatively simple to produce, require a few hours of time investment a week (on top of the time taken for reading through DDF which they're doing anyway), and has a captive audience of thousands already built in. I think hundreds if not thousands of people would listen to the podcast on their commute, or at night, etc.

I was thinking of doing this myself with a partner, but I realized we don't spend nearly enough time absorbing the various discussions happening on the forums, and that it would be much better suited with someone who does and more especially if they have previous recording experience.

Who thinks this is a good idea and who wants to take up this challenge?

I can probably take care of the technical part of a website and hosting it online, if you care for something like that

That would be cool.

But I'm not looking to be involved anymore. I'm simply putting the idea out there for someone else who may be

Nope...you gotta live DDF. Just tuning in once a week will not give you that experience, you wont get it. And if you live DDF, you dont need it.

And if you just want a recap of the good deals that are posted, without all the back and forth, you can use try this website:
Dansdeals.com.
There is even a weekly digest you can subscribe to.

No you don't have to "live" DDF. You don't have to live NHL to appreciate a good hockey podcast.

A good DDF podcaster may be someone who "lives" DDF, but the listeners don't necessarily have to.

You won't appreciate hockey podcast if you don't watch at least some hockey. Same here.
Oh, and could you have been more stereotypical using hawckey as an example.
Haha, Mounties!
