Masthead Free Podcast, Ep. 12, Belated #Hottakes


Hello dear readers/listeners,

We come bearing the gift of Tottenham Hotspur takes of the hottest variety! You want thoughts on our new manager? You get a hot take! You want thoughts on who goes and who stays on the roster?? You get a hot take! Want to hear about developing talent in North America (wait what)?? You get a (probably unwanted) hot take!!

Time stamp:
Pochettino and managerial takes (1:40)
Rosterbation and ints/outs (19:50)
Clash of cultures - Development of players in NA (48:30)

Brix and Cry bring the heat as always and we'd like to take the time to thank Willman for once again coming through and dropping the knowledge on us in the best possible accent ever. Me and A1 were predisposed (him for adult reasons, me because I was kidnapped and drunk) but couldn't be happier than to listen to our pod mates wrap up our first season. Special shout goes to Inverted FB who really is the backbone of this small, but really fun operation. Given the abject madness that sometimes ensues due to our weird "comedy" bits, we are edited. Not always a ton (except "The Hatchet Job", that has like 30 mins cut!) but enough to keep him busy and on his toes, and we couldn't do it without him.

We would also like to thank all the people who have listened, supported, and provided constructive feedback in this, our first year. We hope that we made you laugh a little and remember why you love the club. Despite our banter, pessimism, and eye rolling, that is why we do this little project--we absolutely love Spurs. Forget our differences.

You may notice, for those paying attention, that we are lacking an episode 11. Well, we aren't really. There is one. It was recorded after the West Ham game, but there was a real injury in the crew and we couldn't publish it in a timely manner. Maybe one day we will release the lost episode. Spoiler alert: it's pretty good, but not too relevant anymore.

In ending, I'm not going to lie, this episode has some weird sound. It's something we still work on given our budget ($0) and are fully aware of. If that turns you off, we understand, but don't assume we aren't working on solutions. We are working on it, and will continue to do so.

First off season episode should be out soon after the first round of the World Cup.

Anyways, here is the twelfth episode. Links to iTunes (you can also just search us in their store or Podcast apps), Podomatic, and Soundcloud are all up and running. As always, here is the RSS feed/xml.

Enjoy and thanks for the listen!
