About a week ago, Prashanth approached me about doing a series of weekly Q&As where we basically went back and forth about the upcoming and previous week's games in a literary format. We could also address the larger context of college football as a whole. The idea was that we could share our thoughts in a more conversational manner than the traditional story format. That discussion led to a suggestion that we cut out the middle man, embrace technology, and jump on the podcast bandwagon. Neither of us had ever done one on our own (I participated in a few last year when ODB kicked off), so I needed a little time to gather information on how these things are done.

Satisfied that the technological aspect is not prohibitively unwieldy, I am now pleased to announce that we're moving forward with the idea. My hope is that the podcast for each week will go up Wednesday (for a Saturday game) and devote equal time to the two games (preceding and upcoming). By that point in the week our opposition research should be mostly done, so we should be armed for bear. The key word in that sentence is should. Like I said, neither of us have ever done this before. There will be growing pains a-plenty. The podcast will probably begin with just the two of us, but as we become more familiar with the format, I plan to bring in guests and perhaps another host.

I knew SBNation would back the idea because of their recent emphasis on different modes of multimedia. They would probably prefer that we do it through video, but I didn't want to subject you guys to that. I've been told before that I have the proverbial "face for radio." If Helen's face launched a thousand ships, mine would send them screaming back into the harbor.

I'll share more details as we put things together. Until then, there is something you can do to help. We need a name for this little endeavor befitting of ODB and the Baylor Bears.
