I keep tuning in....
I love tennis and I love tennis podcasts. I'm always excited to tune into this program because you have great guests. But oftentimes I don't make it to the guests because I get so distracted by the music bed that is playing during the first several minutes of the podcast. The music is not for me, but even if I were a fan of it, I find it very hard to hear your introduction. It seemed to last a particularly long time on the Casey Dellacqua opening. I want to like this podcast more and really wish I could turn that music off. It's a trivia complaint but it distracts from the experience I'm hoping to get. Thank you..
I’m such a fanatic and this podcast goes behind the game to the lives, careers and history of the sport. Also, a history of Tennis broadcasting - especially from the perspective of the women behind the mics.
My favorite tennis podcast ever
First, full disclosure: I’m big fan of Racquet Magazine. The podcast complements the experience of the magazine. And it’s fun and insightful in it’s own right. A must to all tennis lovers out there.
