Podcasts are awesome.
It’s not just that it’s a growing medium for audio-based entertainment, it’s that they are also becoming increasingly sophisticated and convenient. Instead of being at the mercy of whatever your local sports talk radio station is providing for content that day, podcasts allow you, the avid Phillies fan, the ability to pick and choose which voices you want to hear and when.
And sometimes, it’s the only time you get to hear some Phillies talk.
Here at The Good Phight, we have developed a robust podcast network that brings you the very latest Phillies news, engaging and entertaining conversation on the team and sport as a whole, as well as funny as hell looks back at the history of this franchise, all in one podcast feed.
The Good Phight Podcasts. It’s good stuff, kids.
Last week, I had manager Gabe Kapler on my podcast “Hittin’ Season,” and I routinely speak with Phillies beat writers, broadcasters and national baseball scribes as well as fellow bloggers and podcasters, like TGP Head Guy Justin Klugh and Yahoo Sports’ Liz Roscher.
Liz and Justin have a wildly entertaining (and NSFW!) podcast they call “Continued Success,” which also examines the Phillies and the larger baseball landscape as a whole. There is the often-hilarious, always-informative and award-winning pod “The Dirty Inning,” hosted by Justin and Dr. Trevor Strunk, a podcast that was recently named one of Philly’s Best Podcasts for 2018.
You can listen to these podcasts in your car, while you’re out for a jog, mowing your lawn, washing your dishes, or anything else on the go. If you have a mobile phone, podcasts are a cheap, easy and fantastic source of content for everyone.
But if you’re unfamiliar with the medium, here is a primer. First you have to pick an application, the most common of which is Apple Podcasts.
If you have an iPhone, Apple Podcasts is built in to your phone. If you’re on a computer, it’s an easy install (download here). It doesn’t offer the same robust features as other applications, but it’s easy to use and it’s free. You can also subscribe to your favorite shows for automatic download, limiting the work on your end.
To find The Good Phight on Apple Podcasts, simply type the name into the Search bar at the upper right-hand corner of your computer screen or in the search bar on your Apple Podcasts app (the pic below if from our SB Nation Eagles pals, Bleeding Green Nation, which is why you see their name in the search bar, however, type The Good Phight to get our fabulous pods!).
Once you select from the results, hit the “Subscribe” button underneath the logo (and notice all the 5-star reviews while you’re there!).
You’ll see hundreds of ratings for TGP and all our podcasts, so you know you’re getting quality content and that you’re making a very smart decision.
If you’re on Android, Google Podcasts comes already installed on newer phones. If you don’t have the latest Android phone, it’s an easy install (click here).
The rest of the process is simple: Search “The Good Phight”, click on us, and you’ll get this screen. Click “Subscribe” and you’re in!
You might know Spotify as a music streaming service but it supports podcasts too. This is great if you still want to listen to music before and after your podcast of choice and don’t want to have to switch applications. Just like the others, the process is a couple of clicks and you’re on your way to enjoying TGP.
There’s a trick about the media player we use in every podcast article. You can use it to subscribe from whichever application you’re using.
Here’s how the media player displays on a regular article:
But you can access the show page and bring up the podcast on the app of your choosing by clicking on the green icon from inside Megaphone. It’s that easy!
If you use Android, Stitcher is another method for finding The Good Phight.
Again, if you get to the main page of Stitcher and need to search, just type in The Good Phight into the search bar, hit that Subscribe button, and you’ll get every episode!
The bottom line is subscribing to BGN podcasts is easy, and we are dedicated to giving you a healthy mix of hard Phillies news and analysis, expert guests, and lots of fun and Phils history as well.
So get in on the act! Subscribe to TGP podcasts today!
