It’s hard to keep up with sports talk radio sometimes. A useful resource for me has been catching up on the local shows in podcast form. Last week the XTRA 1360 afternoon show Jon and Jim brought in Ben Fadden from the Talking Friars podcast/youtube show for a segment.
Fadden came on and discussed what the team will do when Tatis comes back and related it to possibly having it contribute to Eric Hosmer having a reduced role in the lineup. They went through a few other topics and it was a good little check in with a younger person who is hyper focused on the Padres.
Ben puts out a lot of content consistently and seems to be getting attention for it. Am I jealous? Yes, but that’s all my shit. He came on Jon and Jim and was prepared, even making a funny joke about how their show retweets all of Ty France’s home runs.
Being on this podcast journey it has always been interesting to track the way people from traditional media outlets interpret and interact with this side group of independent content makers doing a similar thing. In my experience, all the radio guys (including Jim Russell from Jon and Jim) have been gracious with their time. For example, Ben and Woods have had on our own Dallas McLaughlin. Ultimately, it will be interesting to watch Fadden’s growth as he builds relationships like this. Will local radio shows continue to bring on people from the Padres online community? I hope so.
