I dunno man, this space feels like a real community and I like that these guys put in so much effort for no pay to reinforce that feeling. This isn’t fox footy, it’s Demonland. 
 

There’s enough corporate feeling podcasts out there, I personally like that I feel like I’m listening to people that I engage with on this platform. 
 

I’m sure the guys wouldn’t mind constructive feedback, but maybe like the OP, send them a private message. Could feel like a kick in the teeth airing this on public forum that they didn’t ask for feedback on… as again, they do it for free. 

Fair enough mate and can see your point of view with all those points.

Certainly wasn’t meant to be an attack on anyone and hope it wasn’t taken that way. I’m a lover not a fighter!

Oh absolutely - by all means include the questions, they’re often great.

But if it’s just someone going “Hi Andy, love the podcast, I reckon binman is the best thing since sliced bread and my favourite ever player was Rod Grinter. Go Dees etc etc”, that sort of stuff to me is a waste of time and I wonder what the benefit is. That’s just a review and feedback for you as a host, not sure why anybody else would be interested.

But it’s your podcast, and your prerogative to run it as you please!
 

 

DB - as has been pointed out, play those bits at 2x speed or jump forward 15 or 30 seconds.

I personally would prefer if the whole podcast was sung as a musical to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody. 

Surely the Grand Old Flag would be a more appropriate tune. Though the Bohemian start above was pretty promising.

It's likely WCW will end up with more than one arm tied behind her back if she dares visit The Manor. Think below.

 

Both arms tied behind my back AND blindfolded… I’d still take down those two sad-sacks without even raising a sweat.

👊🏼

Note ⬆️ there’s no spaces between the periods in my ellipsis, precisely how it should be. 😉

Uber creepy, Bitters.

In BBO’s world ‘creepy’ and ‘romantic’ are interchangeable 🙃

With all due respect to the contributors, there’s absolutely zero doubt that the podcast would be twice as good if it were half as long.

@Dee Boys I listen on 1.5 or double speed and it sounds fine.

I much prefer the depth to other pods that are very superficial but the time can be hard to squeeze in.

Crickey, this thread has become a little more than UM Rated

It’s free, with no ads, is utterly comprehensive, really good-hearted, long enough for a listen on a big drive, long enough to be broken into daily commute or brekky chunks, calls out Demonland community members (which is great for those of us who enjoy the personalised,  ‘community’ aspect of Demonland), takes on callers (non-judgementally), and sometimes provides great interviews. Um, really the podcast is just critic-proof.

I like it in its current form and length. Fits very nicely with the amount of driving I have to do on a Tuesday. You can always play it at 2x if that suits you better.

If the feedback was actually intended to be positive, thats fine - but did it need its own post? A comment on the pod post or a DM would suffice. 

To echo everyone here, the pod is great. Thanks to those who take the time out of their day to create awesome content for us for free.

I’d much prefer if it was less personable and was narrated more like the Casefile True Crime podcast.

Love the idea of the podcast but guys, you've got to improve your public speaking... too many Ums...especially Binman

Just listen to the Adelaide podcast and BInman's stats Its ridiculous....Sorry I had to turn off just couldnt stomach the Ums

I'll try again next week and see if youve fixed it

Cheers 

What a miserable [censored] you are.

lol at the censor filter that made my post seem more aggressive than it was intended but considering the mean spirit of the OP which could have been a PM or here's a thought just keep your [censored] opinions to yourself.

A bucket of blue paint WC?

Changing it from red to blue would surely be a huge Manor 'faux pas'.

Absolutely disagree. Perhaps millenials and gen z need all their info in short sharp tik toks.

I really like the long form conversations and detailed analysis with the use of stats.

I also love the questions and comments from Demonlanders which provide other viewpoints from the audience and Demonlanders.

I have zero issues with the length and you can fast forward bits if your attention span can't handle it.

The guys put in a lot of work and there is no issues from me in thanking people that take the time to post a review.

@Demonland @george_on_the_outer & @binman don't listen to a couple of sour pusses. I love all the content and the length of the show is fantastic. I consume the show in bits and pieces if I have to to make it last. I crave Dees content and you guys provide it in spades.

Thank you ums and all.

It’s not so much that I’ve got a short attention span, just that I’ve got a young family, have other podcasts I try to also fit in during the week, and consequently barely ever have a free 2.5 hours for it. It wasn’t meant as an insult and glad @binman didn’t take it as such.

For those who are retired or with a bit more time on their hands, I’m sure it’s less of an issue.

The Pod can go for as long as the boys  like as far as i'm concerned.

As long as it finishes by my usual bed time and not after!

I'm even happy to send a coded message in the chat when i'm nodding off so the three amigos know when to wind things up... 

Something really out of left field that only George, Andy or Bin would recognise.

How's about some sort of subtle filler that no one will notice like say "Um" ?

Just say “thanks for your reviews and feedback”!

Imagine if for instance the Fox footy podcast or the deebrief spent half their shows detailing every positive review they received rather than talking about actual footy, how bored you’d get of them.

For me, I listen to a podcast cos I’m interested in the subject matter and I’d assume that would be the same for most people? Not sure I’m saying anything earth shattering. And if you disagree that’s fine too, I’m not trying to have a blue with anyone!

I don't think the fox footy podcast would get any positive reviews :laugh: David Zita groaning at Max Laughton's attempts at humour 10 times a pod. They really should put on two people that don't hate each other. I'd maybe give it another go! Strange one to bring up.

As for the Debrief Podcast: Go Dees! It takes all different types of podcasts for all types of fans in the demonverse and I listen to em all! BUT they are better served spending what I assume is an expensive hourly rate in their rented studio with a producer, discussing the footy rather than the footy AND reviews and guest questions like the DL Pod. Let's let them all be unique in their own ways.

    TROUBLE by The Oracle

    Situated roughly in Australia's geographic centre, Alice Springs has for many years been a troubled town suffering from intermittent crime waves, particularly among its younger residents. There was a time a little while ago when things were so bad that some even doubted the annual AFL game in the town would proceed.  Now, the hope is that this Sunday’s Melbourne vs Fremantle encounter will bring joy to the residents of the town and that through the sport and the example of the participants,

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
