ALDLAND Podcast

ALDLAND is finally back with another podcast. Things like work and vacation could only stop us for so long, and now it’s time to get back into the podcast game. We catch up on a lot of things, but mainly baseball and college football. So take a listen and get ready for the return of the best sports podcast ever recorded.

Have you ever thought about Ronaldo and Fred Durst at the same time, or at least in close proximity to one another, thought-wise? Well you’re about to, because the first story on tonight’s ALDLAND Podcast discusses both last year’s Balon d’Or winner as well as the Limp Bizkit frontman. If that doesn’t pique your interest, there is also discussion of an actual sports topic in the form of ALDLAND’s take on the MLB trade deadline.

There hasn’t been much going on in sports lately but that does not mean that ALDLAND doesn’t have things to talk about. We talk peeing on graves, we talk invading countries to take their sports stars, as well as more normal sports topics like soccer and baseball. It’s all here in the ALDLAND podcast.

Even the ALDLAND Podcast is not immune from Lebron discussion, and so we start off the episode with that very topic. Where will he go? Why will he go there? All these questions and more are discussed. But don’t worry, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, we haven’t forgot about you and also predict your landing destinations. Not to be left out, soccer makes its presence felt in this edition of the ALDLAND Podcast as the World Cup final gets a healthy preview.

There is much to discuss on the ALDLAND Podcast this week, and your two favorite cohosts waste no time in getting down to business. First up is discussion of Vanderbilt University’s first ever national championship in a men’s sport, as well as talk about the reasons behind why they won. Also on the menu is the United States of America’s upcoming soccer match against the nation of Belgium, as well as which country has the better food and drink, soccer hairstyles, and whether strikers in soccer are bigger divas than NBA superstars or NFL wide receivers. So dig into this action packed podcast before you go out to support the greatest country in the world, the United States of America.

It’s World Cup time, and ALDLAND is here to bring you coverage of the big event down in Brazil (although not live coverage, because our request for travel funds was denied). We talk surprises, not surprises, the United States of America, and how the United States of America is the most awesome country in the world. We also discuss at length how you should be ashamed of yourself if you were born in the US and root for another country over your nation of birth.

ALDLAND is in finals mode . . . NBA and NHL finals that is! Your favorite hosts are here to break down, or at least pay lip service to the championship rounds in both hockey and basketball. And that’s not all. Stay around after finals talk for a quick discussion on the upcoming Vanderbilt-Stanford series in the NCAA baseball tournament. It’s really the most fun you can have listening to a podcast.

Soccer is on the mind of your favorite cohosts as the Champions League Final and World Cup get closer. Jurgen Klinsman’s omission of Landon Donovan from the US World Cup roster is a hot button issue, and ALDLAND can’t miss the chance to weigh in on it. So come for the soccer, and stay for the discussion of Miguel Olivo biting off part of Dodgers’ prospect Alex Guerrero’s ear.

Coaching changes are happening everywhere these days, and by everywhere we mean in Detroit and San Francisco or Oakland or wherever the heck Golden State is. And since they are happening, ALDLAND is going to talk about them. But we haven’t forgot college hoops, as we touch on the biggest story of 2014, coming out of New Haven, CT. Come for the basketball, stay for the soccer, which is also here in this podcast too.

R.C.M.P.: The Return of Canadian Mounted Podcasts

jdpc

I am not a television critic, and I haven’t had anything to say about podcasts not our own in a long time, but ostensibly uncoordinated events this week compel me to again address the field.

As I described at length a few years ago, I was never much for podcasts until I found The Jalen Rose Show. Although I still check in periodically, changes in my daily schedule caused me to fall off the regular listening (and now viewing) train. I did not think I would find another non-ALDLAND Podcast podcast that would entertain me and hold my interest.

Last year, however, I found two. The first was Norm Macdonald Live, a live video podcast with weekly episodes that started in March 2013. My insatiable appetite for Norm‘s material notwithstanding, I do believe the show worked on two levels: i) it had the basic element of funny guests being casually, unscripted-ly funny, and, ii) by its structure, it operated as a deconstruction of the talk-show format. (If I try to write any more than that, they’ll revoke my liberal arts degree and make me turn in my semicolon license.) After about a dozen episodes, the seemingly successful program inexplicably went off the air in the summer of 2013 with no indication that it might ever return.

The summer of 2013 offered new video podcast life, however, in the form of the (re)birth of the Jay and Dan Podcast. Jay and Dan are Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole, the lead anchors of Fox Sports 1’s Sportscenter-ish program Fox Sports Live. Before joining FS1, Onrait and O’Toole held the same job at TSN on Canadian Sportscenter. Their podcast existed in some form in Canada, but they reinvented it as a weekly video podcast through Fox, targeted at a more heavily American audience. Like Norm’s, Jay and Dan’s podcast regularly makes me smile and laugh. Also like Norm Macdonald Live, the Jay and Dan Podcast inexplicably disappeared with no indication that it might ever return.

In perhaps the first Canadian comedy and entertainment conspiracy of the internet age, both podcasts made surprise returns to apparently regularly scheduled programming this week. While both were a little rough on reentry, it’s nice to have them back on a weekly basis. Watch for Norm Macdonald Live on Monday nights and the Jay and Dan Podcast on Wednesdays.
