BGN Radio is Returning as BGN Radio

Two weeks ago, John Barchard and James Seltzer split with Brandon Lee Gowton to re-brand “BGN Radio” as the “Go Birds” podcast, which was basically a full-time move to Radio.com and 94 WIP under the Entercom umbrella.

At the time, Gowton wrote that he felt “betrayed,” forced off a podcast he had a hand in creating back in 2013. I was told it was a work-related conflict involving Vox Media – which owns SB Nation – the blog network that hosts Bleeding Green Nation and BGN Radio.

Today, SB Nation/Vox revealed plans for a re-brand of the podcast:

“We are happy to announce that Vox Media is officially launching four new podcasts and twelve new shows as extensions of our four Philadelphia team brands. The Philadelphia sports fan community is powerful and unique and so are these shows, each of which will now be hosted exclusively by SB Nation and can be found on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you enjoy your favorite podcasts.

For fans of the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles, we have built a new Bleeding Green Nation podcast with some familiar names/voices: Michael Kist will continue to co-host the “Kist & Solak Show” with Benjamin Solak, as well as join Brandon Lee Gowton for a weekly edition of the popular “BGN Radio” show. Brandon will also pair with John Stolnis each Saturday to preview that week’s Eagles game.”

Stolnis is the Phillies guy who writes for “The Good Phight.”

The other podcasts are a re-branded “Broad Street Hockey” and a separate jawn called “Flyperbole.” There’s some other amalgamation of three different Phils pods. For the Sixers, Max Rappoport and Jim Adair will bring “The Stepover” to Liberty Ballers. I don’t think their show was attached to another site; I think they had just been doing it independently and hosting on Soundcloud, but I could be wrong.

So there ya go, BGN Radio is back. And we’ve got our own Crossing Broad podcast network, so it would be dumb of me to write about a bunch of other shows without shouting out our own offerings. I personally recommend the latest version of “It’s Always Soccer in Philadelphia.” –

    Is the Steel’s 44.5% success rate on long passes good enough? Feeling Herbers and Fontana should switch. Maybe more Skundrich. Maybe Burke goes to a False 9?

        The more you write the angier they get. Make it 5000 words to really get their monthly flow going.
