  1. New episode out now. I make the bold (and likely debated) statement of no college hoops this year in one of the more downer episodes we’ve ever dropped. Summer of the corona continues. 
     

    Also side tech note: I stopped recording audio separate of the video and now I just cut the audio from the finished video file, saves me time and effort. However I felt like on the listen back the audio quality might have dropped and maybe I just have too much time on my hands, but if anyone notices any issues feel free to reach out I may always end up switching back.

    Holy sh*t.  This is incredibly sad.

    @The House That Rick Built just posted early this morning that they had a re-watch of the 2000 SLU/Cincinatti game with former Billiken Justin Love and @billikenfan05 that they are going to put up on YouTube.

    Going to be incredibly difficult to watch that now and keep dry eyes.

    Was supposed to actually be up last night but my computer refused to cooperate. Hopefully we can publish that soon. And indeed, it will be impossible to watch that with a dry eye.

    Haha.  I was actually thinking of a way you could get the Tarantino format to work on the Podcast.  The dream would be put all of the Majerus stories together from various Majerus era guys (Evans, Ellis, BIancardi, Daly, etc.).  Take the crazy stories and kind of chop them up and put them into an order that makes it really fun.   Basically an oral history of the Majerus era in Tarantino format.

    I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t look at the idea of making something of a doc/film just for Billikens basketball period, but the amount of time might really be over my head.

     

    Also, unfortunately the blood aspect of Tarantino films would not translate as well to this story..... sadly.

    I'm listening to episode 77 now and not watching so I had no idea what the hell was going on until I decided to look at the YouTube and see if the same thing was happening.  I assumed it first you had screwed something up with the editing.  Not a fan of the random snippets from @Pistol interspersed in the episode.   To be clear, I like having Pistol on there, but not the way you edited the episode.  It is way too choppy and the breaks in what he's saying aren't natural.  IMO episodes should be clear and straightforward rather than confusing the listener by jumping back and forth between an interview about recruiting and the other stuff you and Zach are talking about.   This is a basketball podcast, not a Tarantino film.

    Also, I don’t know about you but any Billikens content we make is a Tarantino film. Treat it with such respect! Lol

    I think it would have been better to just do the Colin (@The House That Rick Built) and @billikenfan05 segment first and then have all of your stuff together as another segment instead of being split up into little chunks and dropped in kind of randomly.

    Edit: Again, love the content and appreciate trying different things, I just don't care for the choppiness.

    Yeah I totally get it no offense taken. Knew it was choppy. Can you tell I am ready for basketball season?

    A whole lot of new coming at you, and there are some can't miss things:

    1) A new regular episode of the show, featuring a new segment from @Pistol (I'm bored and I decided to have some fun, so if you hate it, it likely won't stick long, and if you love it then maybe I'll do more like it)

     

    2) A new interview with Brian Daly in which he drops these great gems:

    - a story about Majerus pissing in a trash can, on the court, during practice

    - Majerus telling Kwamain he could guard Daly if he was laying down

    - plus a whole lot of very candid conversations about situation one and more during the Majerus era

    *This episode will not be available on YouTube immediately

     

    3) A re-watch of the 2000 SLU/Cincinatti game with former Billiken Justin Love and @billikenfan05

     

    The first two are up, the re-watch should be up shortly so long as my computer continues to be nice to me. Links, plus clips down below. Majerus clips from the Daly episode will be up shortly on our YouTube as well.

    I listened to the whole thing over the weekend. Really good stuff and Stuen was a good listen. Really liked the details of the European trip, wish we could have had more honestly. I can't ever remember having a staff this impressive from top to bottom.

    The Europe trip was awesome to hear about. It was also interesting to hear Harriman mentioned. Kind of shows how deep SLU’s roots were in over seas recruiting under previous SLU regimes and how much of a reputation we still have as guys like Stuen continue to look for new talent abroad. 


  9. @DoctorB and for anyone else interested, the condensed edition of the podcast is up now. Stuen can talk so I tried to pick some essential clips to include, and even then it ran up to 20 minutes, but hopefully that’s more digestible than 2+ hours. I’ll make sure to note down the important stuff going forward so I have better clips, but let me know if this is the type of short hand stuff that would make consuming the show easier for people. Also, for everyone that listens I changed the intro for the show, added a video element now so that it translates well to the YouTube form of the podcast. That is also included in this YouTube video, can also be found on our Twitter I will try to attach that link here as well. Thanks as always for following along.

    I'd keep the longer interviews as just one podcast.

    I'll second Pistol in that on a weekend if I'm working in the yard, mowing the lawn, fixing something around the house, whatever, I can knock out a couple of these longer podcasts

    I’d also add on that episodes which don’t include an interview normally clock in around 45 minutes to an hour, which is a conscious decision on our part to keep things concise, so all we’ve been doing are abnormally long episodes in a row in place of not having basketball to talk about. Your normal listening work load is not much more than 45 minutes.

    I actually wonder if your number of listeners would increase if you split this into two separate pods - each about an hour when you edit and trim some fat?  You could also provide some commentary on the topics covered in each pod at the start and end to build upon the fans perspective of the conversation.  As you have seen, many people shy away from listening based on the length alone.  I feel that you could take this route to still utilize the full interview, increase your pod downloads and provide the content you are looking to provide without sacrificing a large portion of the interview.

    Excited to listen to this and happy to share feedback to help increase your listener base.  The more people interested in the Bills, the better!

     

     

    I’m always happy for the responses from you guys. You are very much correct that our numbers would go up but it’s fluff too because it doesn’t mean our actual audience numbers are growing it just adds consistency to our numbers, especially when it comes to how we can actually use those numbers whether it’s sponsorship or otherwise.

    Also, our numbers would indicate that when I used to split up the interviews into multiple episodes, the numbers were always lower on part two because people don’t always make it back to the second part, so that’s another place we could lose on those numbers. But also at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter that much because again it’s not really growing the audience as much as it maybe just inflated our egos about how successful the show is. Lol.

    All of that being said as always we are happy to hear from people on the board or elsewhere about the show, curious what your thoughts are on changes, and happy to make changes so that this show best fits the audience it’s made for. 

    Also feels like you are assuming a lot because the numbers on the last episodes, some of our longest episodes, have all been some of our best numbers, meaning not too many people are shying away based on length. 
     

    I’m hopeful that posting clips of the full interviews in 5-10 minute segments that are some of the most enlightening parts of the show help people digest the content easier as well.

    At any rate as always I’m grateful for the feedback and continued listens from everyone.

    or any of it, ever.  I doubt if I'm the only one wanting a digest of this material; but if so I guess you all just have a lot more time on your hands.  It was an innocent question, just wondering.  Often HoosierPal and others give a useful digest of the radio shows, for those not able to catch it; how is this different??  I don't get the pushback...

    Not complaining about the feedback at all. It will be something that I will add to our content list, maybe a 10 minute clip with the important takeaways from the show. At least we have a better idea of what everyone is wanting.

    For those of us unwilling to take in 2.5 hours of this sort of thing: any highlights? new info?? updates on players/ summer workouts???  Gimme the 45-second version, please!

    I will be cutting up more clips from the show of important quotes and putting those up on our YouTube channel. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any important information!

    05 and whoever your partner is--------Great job on the podcast with Stuen.  Personally, I just can't listen to 2-3 hour podcast the way you have been doing them, but I just sat through this video version from start to finish and thought it was great, even with the few glitches that you had to deal with.  It was really enjoyable and very worthwhile for any Billikens fan.  Thanks

    Because I don’t say my name at the beginning of every episode. Just giving you a hard time, I’m happy you liked it. As the season comes back and there are video highlight packages I can include and clip into the show, different media elements that can be added etc. First try and obviously as you said there were glitches we ran into. Curious did you throw this up on a tv, or just watch on your computer/mobile device? 


  15. After a few weeks off we are back and trying something new.

  16. Just a friendly reminder that in a little over 5 hours our interview with Paul Biancardi drops. Make sure to check that out, Paul does Monday With Majerus on Twitter every Monday, has a lot of love for a Rick and a lot of great stories To tell about Rick (not as explicit as other interviews). If you haven’t in the mean time check out our other interviews, likely some more new stuff in the pipeline so as always stay tuned here, the way you guys have been listening to this podcast without any actual basketball is truly awesome and it’s very much appreciated. Hope you enjoy.
