    Idea: Breaking Blue Podcast

    I've been thinking recently about how shitty Toronto baseball talk radio is and then it occurred to me that we have some pretty funny, informed and interesting posters on this very board. I'd like to float this idea.

    Framework:
    -Weekly podcast, evening, approx. 1 hour
    -Cover weekly Blue Jays news (I intend for it to be Blue Jay centric)
    -Cover news around baseball
    -Segment called "Orioles Hangout suxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" where we delve into that shit hole and laugh at dumb posts.
    -Fantasy discussion that for once focuses on deeper 7x7 leagues. This section includes bantz and trash talk re: DDL. Discuss hot/not, the whole deal.
    -When it gets big enough, take fan questions.
    -Weekly guests, either board posters or, if we get the clout, someone like Barry Davis. Dream is Gibby. Maybe real life celebrity Roy Firestone or weams!

    I'd like to have around 4 regulars that are a good mix of funny, knowledgable and interesting but that each bring something different to the table. Some suggestions (not at all limited)
    - Laika
    - Dinger
    - Queen B
    - J4L69
    - Silvergun (even with his TDS, he's interesting funny and knowledgable)
    - P2F
    - Greenwood as the token contrarian.
    - z3r0s
    - King
    - Terminator
    - and more!

    Of course, there will be times we will need a fill in, so the lineup wouldn't be set in stone.

    Potential guests (or perhaps even regulars if they are up for it):
    Vdub
    Spats
    JimCanuck
    Statman
    LTBF
    International Wok
    Spanky99
    Hurl
    Gruber
    Ang
    The Dogg
    Nox
    North
    Cyborg
    Big Cecil
    John Havok
    Grant
    Jaysfan2014
    BBBB

    And more!

    Tell me what you guys think. I'm just at the idea pitch stage right now, I think it would be just fun and require only a small amount of time per week.

    I feel like the size and scope you're suggesting will cause it to fizzle rather than reach the heights you want. I think you would want to have a site/blog with pregame and postgame writeups, minors articles, etc at minimum to complement it. That would help generate and keep the interest.

    I could see making appearances if it got off the ground. You'd need 1-2 co-hosts that you have good rapport with.

    Boxy, Silvergun, and Greenwood sounds about right to me.

    I bet Boxy, Dinger, and J4L19 would have an interesting conversation.

    I don't hate Silvergun, I just had to block him for being too much of an asshole. If he stops being such an asshole then I have no qualms. He's funny and knowledgable.

    I'm looking for guys who would be committed to this. It would only be an hour per week and that hour can be flexible.

    Yeah I wouldn't mind doing a write-up of the podcast but since this won't be daily, I don't feel that blogging about each game is necessary. I'm not looking to make any money from this, it would be just for fun.

    If there could be a prospect segment hosted by Todd this could really take off

    I would consider it. Not sure how good of a host I would be. This would also be a fair amount of work to be good. We would need regular segments and would need to have some sort of outline of topics for each show.
