Gleeman & the Geek Inaugural Podcast

Aaron Gleeman and I have noticed that we like arguing with each other about the Twins. Now we get to see if you like it, too.

Last night, armed with several big Twins stories and a pitcher of Surly Furious, we sat down at Park Tavern and talked a lot of Twins. In the sober reality of the morning, it doesn't sound half bad, so we've posted it at The Baseball Pitcher. If you're looking to overdose on Thome, Delmon or the Twins this morning, please give it a listen.

We're looking for feedback, as we are tentatively planning on doing something similar on a weekly basis, so please use the comments below or tweet us at @aarongleeman or @twinsgeek and let us know what you would do to make it better.

This is a good medium for Gleeman. He writes like an arrogant spiteful jerk, but he seems like a good guy talking to you. The baseball talk is great, definitely keep it up. You should get Parker to create some Team Geek and Team Gleeman merchandise.

I liked it. You guys did a good job bouncing off each other. Keep it up.

Excellent podcast guys. Great rapport between the two of you. It's refreshing to hear people talk intelligently, thoroughly and honestly about the Twins.

I listen to a lot of podcasts and a lot of good ones have some sort of trivia or contest at the end of every episode to keep you tuned in for next week. Something like that might be fun.

Good stuff guys! You need a scholar in the mix, though, so give me a call next time... Next time you want to talk about the Wolves or Tubby's crew, that is. :-)

It sounded good! I used to be an engineer at MPR, and I can tell you that it's no easy thing to make a good recording in the middle of a bar. What was your recording setup? Nice job.

If you don't mind a little extra editing time afterwards, I would definitely grab a "bleep" sound effect and swear to your hearts' content during the taping. Bleeps are funny.
