SSA Podcast - The Fezcast

Hi all

Very quickly, those of you on twitter may have already seen, but a couple of volunteers (one being me) are aiming to produce a Saracens-based podcast under the SSA's branding. No doubt many of you are bored of listening to the likes of Andy Goode and Danny Care's views on Sarries so hopefully we can produce something that focuses on the positives of Sarries (while not avoiding the problems entirely!) and may occasionally be a rose-tinted escape from the people who don't like us very much.

Aiming to get the first one out Saturday morning, and every couple of weeks in mid-week during the season. You can follow the podcast's Twitter account, and listen directly on the mixcloud app (links below). And get things off your chest directly on the email address fezcast.ssa@outlook.com.

Might be a bit rough and clunky to start while we find our feet but bear with us if its something of interest - want to do a few things to show the best and sometimes unseen things around the wider Saracens network.

Excellent idea. I had been thinking about this for a while myself, great to see this happening. If you need any help, I am happy to do so. My university degree is in audio production, so if you need help with that, just drop me a line.

All the best with this. It sounds like a great idea.

Barty II: Is there an RSS link to be able to listen in other podcast apps, or just mixcloud?

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast
Barty II 18 August, 2020 19:51
Believe its just mixcloud for the time being but I'm not the tech savvy one! Will get it out elsewhere eventually I believe.

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast
nedrichards 18 August, 2020 19:54
Cool, don't forget to let us know again when it is, since I *will* forget to open the Mixcloud app for just one feed ;-)

It's a great start though, thanks for this.

Always good to get some feedback so will do my (our) best to give it a nudge on here - you'll also get an email if you're an SSA member which I must encourage!

Aiming to do it every fortnight to start with so will be reviewing the Bristol & Quins games in one go, potentially with a special guest or two.

Well done Barty very interesting especially the dog 🐕

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast
Barty II 19 August, 2020 07:16
Think we'll have to make dogs a regular feature after Steve's cameo canine

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast

I enjoyed it. I'll look forward to how it develops over the season.

My one suggestion might be about when you release it.
I don't know about other people but I listen to a lot of pods whilst commuting. I wonder even if you record it on saturday if it might be better to release it on sunday night or monday morning? Just a thought.

What is this "commuting" of which you speak?

Comm.. what? (Sm22)

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast

Cheers OM - hoping once we get into the swing of things we can put it out thursday/friday. As we've all got things to do its recording a few bits here and putting it together by the end of the week. As an example, earliest we can get together to go over the Quins match is the following thursday afternoon, so needs to be a quick turnaround to get something out before the next match. Hopefully further down the line we'll get into a bit of a routine and can make it part of people's commute, whatever one of those is!

My podcast library thing is Castbox, which I believe is one of the most comprehensive on Android. Will it be available on there?

I was actually considering doing a Sarries Pod and was possibly going to call it Fezcast. I'm so glad you guys got there first 😁👍



Here we go! Dah. Dah-dah-dee-dah....

Whens the next one? you whetted my apetite and now I feel like I'm enduring cold turkey.

Should be ready to go on saturday morning. Bit of a lengthy one as we had a great chat with womens team scrum half Eloise Hayward about all sorts of things, she was great, well worth a listen.

Fantatsic Barty.

I share do my chores on saturday morning then brew up and unpack some biscuits.

Caught up with it on Saturday another very good podcast and enjoyed listening to the intreview with Hayward.

One funny thing (in the absence of dogs in the background) was it just me or after talking about the papers mixing up the Vunipolae did the podcast then mix up Mako and Marler? (Sm102)

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast
Barty II 01 September, 2020 15:20
No, Jez was genuinely talking about Joe Marler (for some reason!)

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast
OldMarovian 01 September, 2020 15:42
His passing game ... ok.
Still very enjoyable listen. Well done guys.

Great chat, thanks for the content - and the great interview. Only technical feedback is that the audio levels are somewhat diverse which means I had to put it up a bit too high for the interviews and conversation before being temporarily deafened by the prerecorded "the fezcast" bits (which are very nicely done).

Yep, got that straightaway - i'm not the techy one but as far as I understand there's a bit of an exporting problem between things recorded via zoom calls and the local files which is causing the volume issues. Altering the pre-recorded bits downwards for the next pod. And hopefully not an issue at all once we can do things a bit more face to face. Similar issue to the delays on the line when there's three of us trying to have a conversation. Not ideal!

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast
Barty II 09 September, 2020 14:37
We'll have another one out on Saturday. No need to guess what we'll be discussing!

New COVID restricitions?

Re: SSA Podcast - The Fezcast

Another good POD with an interesting discussion re Farrells sending off. I still think its a bit of an error to talk about poor tackling technique in the sense that he is trying to do a specific thing, dislodge the ball, with those hits. The technique is correct for that aim and indeed in the same game he got two turnovers using that type of tackle. The risk however is simply too high both to others and to him in terms of consequences.
