About Us

Since Everyone Else Has A Podcast, Why Not Us Too?

One of the things I’ve wanted for us to do here at is to get into the habit of a weekly podcast. Thought it would just be a natural extension of our writing, and with advances in technology so that interviews can be done with others remotely without sacrificing sound quality, should be a fun thing to do.

So because social media has lost its mind with what’s going on with the election, I decided to take a few hours away from all that and set one up via the good people at Anchor. It can be listened to on their site, and can also be heard via Spotify. As we use the interlocking DD as our logo, it’s name was stolen from Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and The Sea,” only in this case, I’ve swapped DD for sea because it rhymed.

Plus I had no other idea what to call it.

So give it a listen. As I note in the podcast, you have to do a first one to get a start, then grow from there. If I learned anything from this first episode, it's that talking by yourself for 15 minutes is a bit more of an effort that sitting down and writing a 1,000 word story. This initial podcast talks a little about sports journalism and also looks at four key ACC Football games being played this weekend.

The link to Anchor is here. The link for Spotify is here. Within the week, we are hoping to have episodes added to Apple Podcasts so they can also be listened to and subscribed to there.
