Title: The Loathed Strangers Podcast
Post by: Costanza on Monday, August 27, 2018, 13:16:08
[This is something that I've been on my mind since Samdy mentioned the other week]

I'm at a stage where I am lucky enough to have an ever growing queue of guests who have agreed to talk to me on the podcast.

I do continue to worry about the sound quality though (any one who has contacted me over the last month will know this). I was really disappointed in myself for the Si Ferry episode as it didn't come out anywhere near to the standard that I wanted it to. Ho hum.

Things don't have to change, I'm really enjoying it and I'll keep going for as long as I enjoy it.

This poll is to get an idea whether listeners would support a small Kickstarter. And when I say small, if 200 people contributed £1 then that would get me the equipment to sort out the sound.

This feels like I'm chancing far too early but the Ferry and Heywood episodes have increased peoples willingness to participate.

Opinions/advice welcomed!

Cheers,

Rich

Thanks, Quagmire!

There's a good range coming up:

- A legend to many
- The very popular
- The fringe
- The handful of appearances
- Ex-staff
- Media

I'm going to have different format for most guests who aren't players - it'll be based around favourite XI's.

Ex-players in the queue are from 80's, 90's, 00's and 10's which is good. I've been really trying to secure players from further back.

The Heywood and Ferry episodes have opened a few doors. I know there are ex-players who are listening ---- WHICH IS NUTS!

No apologies required. The player episodes are good in the sense that theyíre not time sensitive.

Apologies.

RE: raising funds. I still donít know how Iím going to do it. Iíve been busy with life stuff so I was pleasantly surprised I managed to organise something this week let alone set-up a Patreon or something like that.

Iíll have to get on it because Iíve found myself beginning to hold back from talking to some very willing and popular ex-players because *I* donít want to mess it up. That sounds harsh on those who have participated, itís not supposed to, all the people Iíve talked to have been, frankly, amazing.

I've not found it that bad before this one today, but it sounds like the guest is on a yoyo over the mike.

Iím not stoping, far from it :)

Itís funny as Ben is the only guest who records sound from his end and itís created more issues for the reasons you give.

Work is progress. Iím still looking at avenues which means nobody is paying me. I might have found one.

Its a reference to the Nick Hornby book - Fever Pitch and the 1969 cup final when he became aware of the Swindon fans.

Ah, right thank you. I have read Fever Pitch - brilliant book - it was a long time ago though so had forgotten that little passage. Good work with the podcast anyway...

...I love the bit where he says something along the lines of..."I've examined the contract, scoured the small print and there are no loop holes, no way out"... I know I've hopelessly mis-quoted but it really does encapsulate what being a Town fan (or indeed any club) means...

I try to not make them time sensitive (monthly season episode aside) so you can listen days/weeks/months later.

Itíll slow down eventually when the contacts try up...!

As always a really good listen. Most fascinating part for me was Sam hinting about Sherwood's involvement leading up to the final vs Preston. He touched on it and would love to hear more on this. I knew Cooper and Williams relationship wasn't great at this point.

Weren't they the same people who insisted he couldn't be an asset stripper as we didn't have any assets to strip? Shortly before he forward sold the catering for the next decade. TBF, I'm not suggesting he wasn't incompetent, but it's not mutually exclusive. He was just as incompetent at being a shyster as he was at everything else

Totally agree. Made my journey to work fly by!

Just listened to Morshead, really good episode (for sound quality & content). Interested to hear him be almost, almost complementary about Jed.

But yes, Morshead II needs to include the Troy Archibald-Henville beef(burger).

Journalist in liking simple publicity seeker who provides copy on a plate whilst disliking person who doesn't spoon feed stories shocker....  ;)

I sort of feel for the next guest as Sam was always going to be a big number on the listener front and it is a tough follow-up... but he's got a really interesting background away from football (I think anyway) and certainly won't go down as a cheerleader for Swindon Town Football Club. We spend most of the Swindon talk discussing the managers he served under.

The dudline day segment was brilliant with Sam. I felt like the Mark Cooper/Luke Williams era was covered quite quickly though, so would like to hear more on that period of time.

The Jamie Pitman one was also very good, I totally forgot about him being sat in the dug out during the Ward/Miller games.

Didnít have time to cover Ling and Williams.... or his stint at Total. Lots to cover in the second sitting (including Cooper).

Jamie Pitman took part with 24 hours notice so will always be a titan of industry in my mind. It was a bit of a mad scramble to prep though.

Hoping to get a few pre-90ís on board.

I'm obviously in the minority because I thought he still came across as a bitter, jilted ex (especially with regards to Power), who doesn't like it when he gets a bit of criticism, (the whining little cunt... ;)).

Really enjoyed that Rich, McAreavy was really interesting. Clearly it wasnít one of our more memorable periods and it sounds like the problems at the club really affected his career. And a really bad way his Town career ended to boot.

Interesting that Matt Heywood liked Kingy but McAreavy didnít. Just shows as a football manager how tough it is to get a large group of individuals to mound as a team.

Keep up the good work Rich. Is that your daughter right at the end of the Podcasts?

Thanks. Yeah, itís my daughter at the end. She may not have an interest in football later but I need her alligence to be with Swindon and not Bristol City.

Itís a battle Iím just about winning. Just about.

Enjoyed the McAreavey episode, and the best sound quality of any episode yet for me, felt pretty professional.

Really interesting picture of King from Heywood, Evans and Paul collectively, clearly had different impressions of the bloke but actually they agreed on most things, just that some of them came off better from him!


Title: Re: The Loathed Strangers Podcast
Post by: REDBUCK on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 13:00:42
Yes I really enjoyed McAreavey, just goes to highlight what a shambles that period was and what i thought at the time that King got things done in 2003 / 2004 more by luck that judgement.

Or how vital man management is. Thereís a reason Eddie Howe is doing so well - his players tend to love him. I think Taylor could have the same effect, whereas I can imagine (on no more than a hunch) that Brown could be divisive. The podcasts really give a sense of what drives a player - something we often overlook as fans.

That would be great! Just had a quick look at his Wiki page, and this line made me chuckle:

Quote
Several English clubs were rumoured to be interested in Miglioranzi after the announcement that he would leave Swindon - clubs included the Town's bitter rival Oxford United. However, Miglioranzi rejected the chance to talk to the Non-League outfit.

I had a dream about this in what pathetic amount of sleep I got last night.

It was in the format of a panel show with Costanza as the host. I was captain of one team and Ty Gooden was on my team. Shaun Taylor was on the other team but I don't remember who their captain was. It was all done in the style of Monty Python film prequels, though (the cutouts).

Then the show came to an end because the studio got flooded by a tsunami (quite standard for my dreams)

Folks,

As the sound quality was poor in his first appearance, Simon Ferry has kindly agreed to return the the podcast for a Q&A session at some point in the near future. If you have any questions then please send me a message.

Also, the Sam Parkin episode will be available from Tuesday morning (UK time).

Cheers,

Just listened to the Super Sammy one. He is a really nice bloke isn't he? It was refreshing to hear someone with a genuine love for STFC.

I felt a bit sad for him at times because he obviously had some personal regrets and problems throughout his career and, surprisingly to me, he lacked confidence in his own ability which never really showed when he played for Town. He was obviously disappointed that he never really achieved the success that was probably expected after his glorious spell at Swindon.

I remember watching him play against us at Orient when he was on loan there towards the end of his career in England and it was quite depressing to see him huffing and puffing around the pitch. Much like when Steve White scored against us for Hereford, I would have been quite happy for him to score against us because I loved the guy. One of the true Swindon greats.

I don't think I'm a million miles away from securing Hazard. We got as far as trying to get through but there were some technical issues and he's had some personal stuff recently.

I'll get in touch with Micky again soon.

I'm always quite reluctant to talk to people still associated with the club. Although the club have been quite good behind-the-scenes with a couple of bits and pieces.
