Here’s the latest goings on with Hockey Talk Radio News…
A New Hockey Podcasting Feature!
As I’ve come to discover, there are some specialists out there who produce some podcasts that might be awesome for our Hockey Talk Radio listeners. If there’s a problem, they might have tons of episodes with only one or two being geared toward our sport, or they might only have a handful of episodes in total. Of course, there’s room for those kinds of shows here on Hockey Talk Radio, so long as they can help either hockey coaches, parents or players.
With that, I’ve already begun enlisting a few such shows — call them Special Guests, and I wouldn’t mind hearing from other podcasters who might fall in a similar category to those described above and below.
We’re beginning this week with The Mental Edge’s Shaun Goodsell interviewing goaltending specialist Justin Johnson. They mainly talk about the mental side of goaltending, but Justin also offers some great advice about the recruiting process.
Also joining us this week is Susan Salzbrenner, with a special episode geared toward athletes and their use of social media. Hockey Talk Radio listeners should know that Susan’s collection of shows is titled “Fit Across Cultures”, and that each episode is mainly aimed at helping athletes discover the benefits of playing sports overseas. Not all her shows are necessarily of interest to hockey folks, though, so Susan and I are going to sort through nearly 50 shows to bring you the most appropriate.
Have I caused any non-hockey podcasters to think? Yes, it’s quite possible that shows other than hockey-specific ones could still be right for Hockey Talk Radio.
As an aside here, I’m thinking back to the weeks just prior to the launch of Hockey Talk Radio, and to the many podcasters who chose not to join us. I can totally understand them, in a way, since the concept of a ’round-the-clock, online hockey radio station probably did sound far fetched at the time. Thankfully, however, the proof is in the pudding after just a few months, and those podcasters who have joined us are already becoming household names in the hockey world. (Yes, I love it when a plan comes together! 🙂 )
In closing for this week, I urge listeners to visit all our podcasters’ pages, so that you might be able to put a face with each voice. Those hard working ladies and gentlemen show hosts would also like you to comment on their pages.
