Am I the only person that likes TalkSport? 

 

If you don't take it too serious and can see beyond the deliberate waffle that is set up to cause a stir, it's not a bad listen most of the time. 

it is what it is, its probably the only station I listen to... its not read from a script like most shows these days

Used to. It's become one giant clickbait radio show now. I find people like Alan Brazil utterly foul and would never choose to listen to him.

 

Adrian Durham has just become so obvious it's painful, it's just all too set-up. 

 

As for the sports bar, well it's even worse than Durham in terms of obviousness. There are too many good football podcasts that actually focus on the sport and not making people angry.

Probably no worse than Radio 5sh*te with the calibre of pundit(?) they now have on, just wanting to provoke a reaction to boost their own egos.

I'm looking at you, Sutton.

Genuine question. Do you guys actually listen to radio? Why not just listen to podcasts or your own music on Spotify or whatever?

I used to but in the last number of years fan media has taken off to the point I no longer listen to the radio. For Celtic content there are a few full time podcasts who produce really, excellent, varied stuff and then for football in general there are tons of free high quality podcasts out there also.

Podcasts are great and I like listening to them too, but they tend to have more of an in depth discussion and go into more detail which I'd sooner sit and listen to in full.

 

I just listen to TalkSport on my work breaks here and there for the 'live' updates or discussions I'm not going to be too fussed about missing parts of.

I used to enjoy it but it's mainly dreadful now. Dull ex-pros, Jim White, Durham all a waste of time.

White is annoying. I think Simon Jordan talks a lot of sense and Durham is actually more tolerable now than before.. he doesn't come across as trying too hard to be controversial, unless that's just the days I've tuned in lol

Yeah - I actually listen to the radio from time to time. Old school or what? (Tried watching it for a while but nothing much happened).

Tried listening to my own music on Spotify as well but all Jimi Hendrix talks about is Liverpool's injury crisis...

Just seems mad to me that radio is such a booming business in 2020, so much so that Murdoch has recently just set up a new station to broadcast his poison 24/7.

 

I'm not joking when I say I don't think I've listened to "the radio" in about ten years. Don't understand how when everyone's got 4G, everything's got bluetooth and there's a bottomless pit of "audio content" (music, podcasts, audiobooks) online that people actively choose to listen to Alan Brazil in 15 minute chunks inbetween adverts for double glazing and the DFS sale.

So it's the medium rather than the message? 

It's just people talking however you access it.
