In this edition of the Continuucast…

Dan does a much better job this time around as he talks about Max Scherzer’s signing, going-ons in Global Baseball (including the Premiere 12 tournament being announced), and also talks about Ichiro Suzuki. Finally, he announces he’ll finally get these on iTunes. Yeah!

Continuucast 2: Electric Boogaloo (AKA: “That Could Have Gone Better”)

 

Dan Glickman’s second foray into podcasting turns into a disaster during the second segment as he tries to tie together pitch clocks, Rob Manfred’s “One Baseball” idea and the Anti-Trust Exemption into something coherent but finds that what sounds good in his head is kind of a bit of rambling when he speaks it. He totally is going to have to write down stuff more in the future, and also expand upon what he was TRYING to say in a blog post.

Also, he said he’d discuss the 2016 All-Star Game being rewarded to San Diego, and ended up not. What a doofus.

Oh well, better luck next time, Dan!

The download link can be found here. The Continuucast will arrive on iTunes and similar services in the near future.

So about the podcast….

So, as you saw yesterday, there’s a new thing added to the Baseball Continuum, the Continuucast! I’ll be doing one every now and then from now on, probably. They will range greatly in time, from as short as five or ten minutes to some installments that may be longer than an hour. So what sort of stuff can you expect to see in the Continuucasts?

Well….

-Discussions of the latest baseball news or thoughts on teams, players, etc. The first Continuucast, for example, has me discuss the Cubs and the Hall of Fame, as well as some brief thoughts on the Ben Zobrist trade.

-Features like Bizarre Baseball Culture. Some of them are semi-previews of future “official” Biz-BCs, others are side-issues, and maybe some of them will be “official” Bizarre Baseball Cultures.

-“Around the Continuum”, where I pay tribute to the vast scale of the Baseball Continuum by taking a look at what’s going on around the world outside of the usual MLB realm of influence.

-In the future… interviews! Other members of the baseball internet, and perhaps other interesting baseball people!

-Mail-Bag! Do you have any questions for me? Send them to djgwriter@yahoo.com!

-And, no doubt, more things that will develop as the Continuucast goes on.

So, listen to the installment from yesterday, and of course, keep an eye open, as I will be adding it to iTunes and other services sometime in the near future (I want to do a few to get on my feet first).

 

Baseball Continuum Continuucast 1: Intro, News and Thoughts, Bizarre Baseball Culture, and a short tribute to Justin Huber

The first Baseball Continuum Continuucast, presented by Dan Glickman. In this episode, you finally hear the voice behind the Baseball Continuum blog as he boldly tries to make a podcast despite having a voice that was made for the written word. Hear his thoughts on the Cubs and the Hall of Fame, get updated on what’s going on outside of North America and MLB as he takes a look “Around the Continuum”, learn about the “Bizarre Baseball Culture” that Dan has never been able to do, and hear a short tribute to Justin Huber.

The podcast can be heard using the player above, or can be downloaded from here. You may need to click “Save Link As…” I am currently working on getting it up on iTunes and similar services.
