New shows: Hit The Broom (Curling) and The Queens Baseball Convention Recap


Two new shows hit the airwaves this week, both of which are AST Originals.

The first is a weekly show dedicated to Curling.  On Hit The Broom our goal is to help make watching and talking about curling easy, fun, and engaging. Each episode we will feature details about some of what is happening in the world of curling. Not everything – just the things that we think are fun, or interesting to casual fans.

The Queens Baseball Convention is a mid-winter gathering of baseball fans (think Fan Fest meets Comic Con).  On this weekly series we take a listen back to some of the panels from QBC15 including the Retired Numbers discussion, Mookie Wilson, the State of The Mets and the presentation of the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award to Ed Charles.

The first episode of both programs is embedded below.


Brian Posehn, #USMNT preview and an updated schedule!

AST Schedule 11-13-15

I’ve been doing a lot of behind the scenes tinkering with the schedule, trying to balance my desire to expose all the great shows we have with some sort of system so the shows are discoverable and predictable. Hence, the above spreadsheet!

As I mentioned in the last post, we’ve added The Total Soccer Show which is really exciting to me. The latest episode previews the USMNT (that’s the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team aka Team USA for you non-soccer fans) game vs. Colombia. That runs tonight (Thursday at 9) and I snuck in an extra play tomorrow morning at 9am to get you ready for the Friday afternoon game.

The guys at Comedy, Food, Sports have a great guest in Brian Posehn. You can catch that episode at 2pm every day until we cycle in a new one.  Also hilarious is this week’s Sports, Sports, Sports including a great fight between representatives of Boxes and Bags.

Slightly more traditional, don’t miss the live The Bower Show Sunday night at 8pm.  Bower recaps the day’s NFL schedule, and you can interact with him and everything!

The Total Soccer Show joins Alt Sports Talk radio

Total Soccer Show

We’re happy to announce that we added The Total Soccer Show to Alt Sports Talk.
The Total Soccer Show is Taylor Rockwell and Daryl Grove, two friends and soccer writers from opposite sides of the Atlantic who are determined to go beyond lazy observations about the beautiful game and get into the details of how and why things happen. TSS covers the USMNT, EPL, MLS and more, as well as welcoming guests on to the show to play the world-famous Wikipedia Game.


Looking for hockey, soccer and NBA shows

First up, we’ve got an embeddable player for the site which is cool.  Press play to listen (we don’t like webpages that start playing audio either)

And with the end of baseball season we are looking to expand out fall-sports offerings. If you’re hosting a cool soccer, basketball, hockey or college sports show please hit us up at [email protected]

We’re also always in the mood for what we call mash-ups. “Soccer and Star Wars” or “Baseball and Politics” or “Video Games and Hockey” – anything like that interests us.

Thanks for listening!
