As are we! Really looking forward to this initiative.

If you're looking to utilize people calling in, something like Google Voice may be the way to go. You'd just take calls on your computer and queue them up. I'm 99% sure it's free for incoming calls as well, and you can turn on do not disturb during non-podcast times. Just a thought since you said you were still going through some hurdles :)

Thanks for the tip. We will look into this.

CW, not to be nitpicky about all this new content, but when do you foresee the podcast of the Thursday night show and the Friday podcast being available for download? It really sucks when a weekend preview show gets posted late on Friday afternoon and you don't really have a chance to listen to it prior to Saturday's game, since there isn't much point in listening to it afterwards.

I usually have the Thursday show up on the site within 30 minutes of its conclusion.

The Friday show will be from 1-2, so iTunes should have it by 3 at the latest I'd think.

Yeah, I'd second that. Another podcast I listen to does the google voice for calls. They regularly mention that you can call it anytime, it doesn't ring anywhere, just goes to a voicemail box. They also do play them on the air.

Oh, and more CF content?



Plus, I'm getting caught up on other podcasts so I was just looking for new stuff today. More CF will fit in nicely.

"They regularly mention that you can call it anytime, it doesn't ring anywhere, just goes to a voicemail box. They also do play them on the air"

That would definitely be a good option too - super easy to set up and easy to eliminate the troll callers too. I use Google Voice for my standard voicemail box. We could literally call a number, leave a message and then you guys go to the Google Voice website and just listen to the messages.
