Well it's a bit cringe worthy mate. Especially the Silvagni bit, Carlton still done well this period to nab Setterfield.
Maybe to you and that's all good. That's not something we normally do but we just did something different and people are commenting they thought it was actually funny. But humour can go many ways I realise. As far as pronouncing Shiel and Setterfield...I actually get that. When I decided to do a Podcast I asked my best mate to co-host and he is a big Essendon fan but has a hectic work life ...so he doesn't get everything right and not overly on social media. I wanted him so I was relaxed talking. The key for us was that the guest content was strong and I am happy with that so far. Our numbers keep increasing so we are doing some things right....but we always knew it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. We both work full time so it's just a fun side project that is going well so far. We are always learning however

I’d tune into listen to Kakkle and Boncer doing their own podcast, I really would!

Scooter05 Maybe you could get them to pre-record a segment.

Maybe post a link here so we can check it out!

Well done and keep the episodes coming. The show has been building and improving all year.

Love the fact that you guys have recorded some episodes in the immediate aftermath of a game or event instead of just posting in the autopsy thread. It captures some raw emotion but yes, sometimes does miss the mark.

Keep going. Campaigners always gonna Campaign.

You can't get upset by criticism when you post it publicly.

I thought it was OK but I dmwant to feel like the information is spot on and the hosts knowledgeable.

When one of you guys stated that traditionally GWS have sought points so we could do something there, I literally yelled at my radio because there are no academy players this year and there should be a fundamental understanding of simple things like that.

But yeah it was ok overall

Yeh it was why is said criticism is all good and we are always learning. Fair call on GWS points comment as I kicked myself after it as well...when talking live you can have some mistakes like that....I think we all hear this even with Lloydy on Trade Radio or SEN regularly making factual errors. I think personally I normally know my stuff and talk to people in the know but on occasion I will get a point wrong. I move on pretty fast though to be honest and keep trying to improve. But I study Essendon pretty hard in general and like to evaluate games in detail myself.

But we asked fans who they want to hear from and we try get them on. Managed to get in 12 months ...Xavier, Rob Kerr, Misiti,, Madden, Harvs, Rob Shaw, VFL coaches etc all on the show. We have access to guys in media like Connolly, Twomey, Cherny and Chip Le Grand as well who have all been guests. Like is said...it's just a fun side hobby we do and to be blunt our audience has grown 60% in the last 3 months.

I liked it, will listen in future thank you guys!

You know you made it when real names agree to come on!
Cheers for that. We chat to Ralph Horowitz on the show this week to discuss how the Hirdy and Crawf Podcast came about and the role James has played this year getting back into the spotlight. Show should be online in the next 24 hours
