    Racing Podcasts

    Just had a thought that some of you might know some good racing podcasts that others might be interested in. I've just posted this in the Cheltenham forum but it probably belongs here.... post them and I'll edit this post to make the list more substantial

    Racing Post Podcast x2 (Review show Monday and preview show Friday)

    Final Furlong Now Friday and Mondays

    Matchbook Podcast (Usually Thursday)(Not just horse racing though)

    Monday Night Review (Usually comes out Tuesday)

    Racehour Podcast (Sponsered by BetBright, seems a bit sporadic but good guests when on)

    Horse Racing Ireland (Little snippets in the week and a Friday preview)

    Talksport (They do mostly other sports but they do a Saturday preview...although think it is done live on Talksport in the morning and just gets posted a few hours later

    Only Balls and Horses Nick Goff, Oli Bell and Tom Stanley. Covers NFL, Racing and Football. It's fairly light-hearted and easy listening. (Thanks FM)

    Jumps Racing - https://soundcloud.com/jumpsracing (thanks jono)

    SportingLife Usually Dave Ord, Ben Linfoot, Matt Brocklebank and Michael Shinners (Skybet) - lots of none horse related stuff too though

    Equine Forum A US based show... not many in to US racing I suppose but it was pretty interesting listening to them discuss Mendelssohn - https://player.fm/series/the-horse-r...etwork-podcast


    I listen using "Soundcloud" as an app on my android or just on the website.... I assume they're all easy to find if you have an iphone too.

    If anyone knows any others that are worth listening to, let us know and I'll keep updating

    Kev - I'd recommend paying for Pocket Cast. I have the app set up so that it downloads the podcasts when I have WiFi, meaning I can listen to them even without a signal.

    The only podcasts I haven't found on their are the #MNR (listened to this today) and any Sportinglife updates.

    Listening to all these podcasts, it makes you realise how good the FFP is.
    Emmett Kennedy is head and shoulders above the others in terms of presenting

    I will check that out FM ...

    I can't stand the girl that does the Racing post Monday Maddie... it just seems to be constant awkward interludes about Pricewise moaning or age related 'jokes'.

    I might start one

    Listened to the Racing Post podcast on my way home.

    I feel a little bit angry about it.

    Pricewise, the headline tipster for the Grand National, didn't watch the race. He was watching the football team he supports.

    Now the Grand National is one of the biggest races in the calender, for a man who has a career and salary paid based on his knowledge and ability to tip race horses, top not have enough interest in that race to watch it, I find just staggering.

    Probably shouldn't have annoyed me as much as it has - but people seem to get paid for watching and talk about racing and they like it less than I do

    He annoyed me as well Kev. Not only did he not watch it but he was very bitter about the race, most probably because he couldn't find the winner.

    His whole rant was full of contradictions and left me wondering how he still has a high profile job in the racing post.

    Yeah exactly, seems more and more dispondant about the game, ante-post betting and betting in general over the whole season.

    I think they seem to be a little bit 'lost' in what they're trying to do. The Monday one is hardly ever an actual review of the weekend, more a preview for the weekend to come when really they just name the best horses likely to run. I don't know who that is aimed at?

    Still better than some, and I can't imagine a week where I miss it still....and I enjoy it iwhen all said and done, but it isn't essential listening.

    Is this Tom Segal you're referring to ?
    I saw Paul Kiely took over Pricewise duties the week before, maybe a shift taking place ?

    I know Segal doesn't bet big, I used to know Bruce Millington and he said Segal and the main football man bet in fivers and tenners, surprised me that....
