Pondering a volleyball coaching podcast

For a little while now I’ve been thinking about developing a volleyball coaching podcast. Podcasts have become quite popular in recent years. I subscribe to a number of them across different subject areas myself. It’s a great way to learn new things, hear different perspectives, and generally engage in one’s interests.

I haven’t come across many volleyball podcasts, though. The one I do listen to is The Net Live. It’s very much US-centric, but it covers good ground and is entertaining. There are even some good coaching discussions at times, but it’s not a coaching-specific program. It seems to me there’s a gap in the podcast market that is worth trying to fill.

What do you think?

I’d really like to hear what you have to say on the subject. Please use the comment section below, or Facebook or Twitter, to share your thoughts on opinions on things like:

  • Frequency (weekly?)
  • Length (60 minutes seems common)
  • Subject matter
  • Number of primary presenters/personalities
  • Examples of similar types of podcasts
  • Groups/organizations I could link up with for guests, promotional support, listeners, etc.

And of course most importantly –

Would a volleyball coaching podcast be something you’d be interested in listening to on a regular basis?

Thanks in advance for your input.

P.S.: It’d be great if you could spread the word to coaches you’re in contact with so we can get input from as many people as possible.
