This is the new podcast. Each week, I’ll bring on a different guest – sometimes live, sometimes recorded- to have a conversation about sports, entertainment, pop culture, whatever. This isn’t sports talk radio. Like the site, we’re not going to discuss what happened in the game, who the quarterback should be, or who the Phillies should trade for. Crossing Streams will be in-depth conversations with relevant guests.
Jeff Bell joined me for a first show. He is the director of the upcoming Sons of Ben documentary, which looks to be a terrific story on how the guys helped found the team. We talk about how it all started in bars and on message boards, how the SOBs would go to away matches in New York and D.C. chanting “Philadelphia” before there was ever a team, and how it was hard – at least initially – for supporters to embrace Chester as the club’s home (and how that has all changed). We also discuss the process of putting together the documentary, getting it to market, and how services like iTunes and Netflix make it that much easier for filmmakers.
We’ll be adding enhancements and some production values as we go on, but I wanted to get this one up there. Enjoy.
