    Hey guys,

    Was suggested by the other members to start a new thread for this instead of being in the OTL thread.

    We launched a podcast called Talking League.

    Over the pre season we will be previewing each team and also doing positional podcasts in the last week before the start of the season.
    I'll grab a player or coach for the team stuff to give you guys a true insight into the team, i feel alot of media stuff with players and coaches are either heavily edited or have no fantasy relevance.
    I try and ask as much fantasy questions to help everyone be informed in picking their teams.

    So far we have dropped

    Episode 1 which features a seasons prediction with Clarkey and pre season injuries with the NRL physio.

    Episode 2 is the Brisbane Broncos with assistant coach Terry Matterson

    Episode 3 is the St George Illawarra Dragons with assistant coach Matt Elliott

    Episode 4 is the Sydney Roosters with assistant coach Craig Fitzgibbon

    I think i can post links tomorrow, so ill do that and episode guides when I'm allowed too.

    Enjoy TK

    Great rapport with guests without going over the top

    I listened to the Knights one yesterday (and had previously listened to the Broncos one).
    I've got to say, I think these are brilliant - really professional and provide some good behind the scenes insight from key personal (i.e. assistant coaches).

    Really impressed and looking forward to working my way through all of them.
