Podcast Hot Clock

Unlike radio shows, podcasts are not limited by time. But that doesn’t mean that we can blab on and on. Quantity ≠ quality. Our listener’s time is valuable and we work to produce episodes containing quality content and production value.

Each regular season podcasts runs 45-60 minutes. We make efforts to keep the podcasts PG-13 – you won’t hear anything on the podcast that cannot be said on the radio.

Previous guests include former Panthers players Mike Rucker and Frank Garcia, former Ms. Raleigh Marcie Trivette (also a guest host!), USA Today Pantherswire writer Edgar Salmingo, Jr. and Sean Keenan of the Hero Movie Podcast.

Each regular-season podcast adheres (somewhat) to the following clock:

0:00 – 2:00 – Show opening, (Billboard sponsorship OR “From the XXXXX Studios” sponsorship), podcast preview

2:00 – 10:00 – Previous game review:

  • highlights from the previous game
  • injury report (sponsorship available)
  • Panther Predator Prey of the Game (sponsorship available)
    (we’re still working this out with Panther Predator but we would love to interview him/read his take on the play of the game)

10:00 – 14:00 – Mail Bag OR Guest Interview  (sponsorship available)

Mail Bag: Feedback from our listeners is read on the podcast.

Guest Interview (speaks for itself)

14:00 – 19:00 – Roaring Riot Membership Plug (no sponsorship)

Promotion of the Roaring Riot. May include a 1-2 minute interview with Roaring Riot chapter leaders or members.

19:00 – 24:00 – Game Ball Award (sponsorship available)

The Game Ball Award goes to the player, coach, group, team (or sometimes the fans) for doing the most to help out the team. Each host provides their own Game Ball Award.

24:00 – 29:00 – Towel of Shame “Award” (sponsorship available)

The Towel of Shame “Award” goes to the player/coach/group/team/official/mascot who didn’t really help things. The name of the award originates from Cam Newton draping a towel over his head and sitting on the bench with his head hung low.

29:00 – 34:00 – Scouting the Next Opponent (sponsorship available)

The hosts take a look at the next opponent for the Panthers and offer their predictions.

34:00 – 39:00 – Final Thought  (sponsorship available)

An open forum for the hosts to discuss any topic – from the latest comic book movies to Game of Thrones.

39:00 – 42:00 – (Sponsorship close-out) and goodbyes

 

Offseason podcasts follow a much looser clock:

0:00 – 2:00 – Show opening, 30-60 second billboard sponsorship (Foothills Brewing Company), podcast preview

2:00 – 10:00 – Panthers news since the previous podcast

10:00 – 20:00 – Segment #2 (TBD)

20:00 – 25:00 – Segment #3 (TBD)
