That Newcastle United Podcast with Taylor and Besty


What’s all this then eh?

December 23, 2011

No production meetings, preparation lunches, planning schedules or any of that hoo har, just two mates, two mics and some ill informed opinion. We started doing this podcasting thing as a bit of a lark, a jape, something to pass the time of day, but it has evolved into something which we didn't expect. Over 3 years have passed since our first effort, Taches and Nonesense, and I'd love to be able to say we've grown and improved as both broadcasters and people, but we haven't. We're basically doing the same thing we've always done. Hit record and go "eeerrrrrm" for an hour. But, people have listened. We didn't expect that.

Somehow, in the last few years we've had our little podcast listened to by nearly 100,000 people, popped up in ITunes top 100 sports podcasts on a number of occasions, raised over £2000 for charity, played at St James' Park, Interviewed a genuine NUFC legend and had a bloody good laugh in the process. I'd love to be able to say this is all part of the master plan of world domination, but sadly this is not the case. We've bumbled our way through and have come out the other side still not really sure how we got to where we are. Hopefully, 2012 will be equally as surprising and entertaining as this year has been. Lots of love and saveloy dips. T&B xxPodcast1Large.jpg
