Ep. 63- Huge News on Hughes with Two Views and You
< 1 day ago
Episode 63 went from being completely planned (twice) to over-crowded, to a bit shorter than normal, all within the space of a week. In the end, though, I’m more than happy with how it came together and thrilled to have gotten the chance to connect with so many wonderful people in such a short time.
The span of the last 7 days (I’m writing this about 7 days and 3 hours after Pellegrino was sacked), I’ve done more guest podcasts and TV appearances than in the past 2 years combined.

Nonetheless, this week we have two separate, shorter interviews, and 4 voicemail messages sent in from listeners reacting to the hiring of Hughes and the win in FA Cup Quarter-final clash against Wigan.
The way the show is structured this week is a bit different. First we’ll have a listen to some fan opinions on the hiring of Hughes, then speak with Saints’ fan and fellow Podcaster Dave Lee (on Twitter @AODavelee) about how he became a fan, the season and the hiring of Hughes. Originally Dave and I were supposed to watch the Swansea City match and record a full episode with all the normal stuff while we were at a conference in Southern California.

We talked for much longer, with no mics around, and enjoyed a few beverages as well (getting ready for the trip to England, in my opinion).
I also had the chance to chat with a podcaster and presenter I respect very much. Jim Salveson hosts and writers “On the Left Side: The Alternative Football Show” along with Ant McGinley, for Abrupt Audio.I spoke with Jim a bit about his show (iTunes link here) and about his thoughts on our new manager Mark Hughes. Lastly, I was lucky enough to get a voicemail from Dan Jarvis (I won’t lie, I actually asked him to send it in) with his thoughts on the Wigan
