Get it in your ears.

irst of all, if this is your first visit to the Bet Diary after reading the 2017/18 Report, welcome on board.  Good to see you. 🙂

You know even old fuddy duddies like me can get into ‘new’ technology.  It was only last week that I resolved never to buy a cd again after I discovered the Deezer app and realised that for a small monthly fee I could download and play any music I wanted to at any time.  I could listen in the car, at home connected to the ‘stereo’ (doesn’t that sound an old-fashioned word now?) via WiFi, wherever.  It’s transformed my musical life, and I do like a new album.

And I know this isn’t really anything new as they’ve been going for some years now, but I’ve started getting into Podcasts in a big way.  Getting a hairy beast (the dog, not the wife) has pushed me in this direction; take the dog for a long walk every day, stick my earphones in and listen to the ‘Cricket Analyst’ podcast or any one of a number of Arsenal related pods.  It’s all good.

And then Wayne of Northern Monkey released a short podcast in which he looked at this year’s Derby and it got me thinking.  Why don’t more tipsters exploit this medium?  I think it would be a great way for a tipster to engage with their customer-base.  They could do as Wayne did and concentrate on giving their views on certain big races, or if say, Racing Service B did a pre-Cheltenham podcast I’d regard it as essential listening.

I know our very own Pete here at the SBC has done a number of podcasts, but really the betting world as a whole seems sadly lacking in this area.  If anyone knows of any that are worth listening to, stick it in the Comments section – it would be good to find them.  In the meantime, one for tipsters to ponder perhaps.
