Tinderbox: Fireside Chat Lions Podcast Options

>> 8.24.2010

For those of you who have—or have not—been listening to the Fireside Chat podcast, there’s now a veritable cornucopia of ways to follow it:

  • First, just click the "Podcast" tab on the linkbar beneath the main banner.  It'll take you to a page where the live stream window is permanently embedded—and a couple all-time favorite episodes are highlighted, too.
  • Second, you can go to the Ustream Fireside Chat homepage, which includes all the groovy chat windows, schedule, archives, etc.  This is the best way to follow the show with all the bells and whistles—including interacting with me during the chat.
  • Thirdly, you can open up iTunes, go to “Advanced -> Subscribe to Podcast”, and paste  in the URL for the episodes’ RSS feed:


The Fireside Chat is currently being reviewed by Apple for inclusion in the iTunes store, but that method will subscribe you whether Steve approves of me or not! As for non-podcast content, more is coming soon.  I’ve been burning the midnight oil on the famous CBA post; my hard drive creaks and groans under its mighty weight.

As for news, it looks like we'll know a lot more about how close Louis Delmas is very soon, as he may play against Cleveland--and we'll see if he'll practice Monday.  Calvin Johnson tweaked his ankle today, but it looks like it’s not serious.  However, Jason Fox’s knee may have led to the Lions’ latest roster move: a claim of just-waived Giants OT Cliff Louis.  In Tom Kowalski’s words:

Lions' right tackle position getting interesting

Michael Schottey dug up a nice little scouting report on Cliff Louis from back in ‘07.  Obviously, Louis hasn’t yet hit that upside, but he clearly was on the Lions’ scouts’ radar all this time.  Is IR coming for Jason Fox?  We’ll see . . .

That reminds me of one last multimedia-related note: Michael Schottey was the guest on The Knee Jerks last night!  Three of my favorite Lions writers all talking Lions; great stuff.  Pop on over to The Knee Jerks to check it out.

Thanks for the getting the podcast feed setup. I gave the show a listen today and I enjoyed it. Just thought I'd let you know.

No problem! Thanks for listening; I'm glad you enjoyed it. Working to make sure it only gets better from here.

Also thanks from me for setting up the iTunes feed. Nice plug for The Knee Jerks, but you forgot to mention that you'll be guest hosting next week. :-)
