Podcast of the Week

Talking Friars: Padres vs Braves Apple TV+ Review

by Nick McCann

I was unable to see the Apple TV+ Game on Friday and heard chatter on Twitter that at least the visual component of broadcast was blowing away the usual offering by Bally Sports. This a topic that is endlessly fascinating to me. Eventually the entertainment wings of big tech companies will likely own the majority of live game rights. But while however inevitable that trajectory is of where things are going, there is a fun period happening right now where we get to watch these new players in the market figure out how to do it in real time.

This week I checked out Talking Friars, a YouTube show and podcast available in the Gaslamp Ball audio feed. Having not seen the Apple Broadcast I was looking for some coverage on it, and host Ben Fadden had a good 20+ minutes on it.

On this episode Ben gives us his thoughts on the play by play call mainly, which wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. His problems with the show were mainly centered around the lack of passion he felt from Orioles Broadcaster Melanie Newman and former player Brian Jordan (Braves, Falcons). This combo fell flat for the host, but he did seem to leave it open that this something that could improve. I guess I wanted to know more about the visual jump that people seemed to react to with the higher level of cameras.

The Talking Friars feed has a lot of content. There are pre and post game shows available, along with cuts that are more focused on one topic. Like Friar Talk and some of the stuff that Padres Hot Tub has been doing, this model of constantly feeding the audience seems to be the way things are going.

Ben is 19 and has sponsorship with Gaglione Bros. He’s doing something right.

Padres vs. Braves Highlights


Friars #NoFilter: Robinson Canó

by Padres Haiku

So the Padres just signed Robinson Canó. Not 100% sure why but we’re here now.

Robinson is part of Players for the Planet, which is pretty much what it sounds like. Here he is cleaning up a beach. Not pictured are the rest of the Planeteers Kwame, Wheeler, Linka, Gi and Ma-Ti.

Robbie going to work in the Tie-Dye Super Work Sweatsuit from Kid Super Studios, in brown naturally. The sweatsuit is pure fire but if those are pre-scuffed Nikes, Imma have to give them a thumbs down.

Not sure how Players for the Planet feels about their representatives getting into massive SUVs. Another banger of an outfit tho.

Robbie played for Estrellas Orientales in the Dominican League. Estrellas Orientales are managed by Fernando Tatis Sr. It’s all coming full circle, wake up sheeple.

…See and then this idiot said pizza crust is replacement level ciabatta, that’s when I notified the FBI.

Went as Katt Williams for Halloween.
