UK Fans of the Evening Want to Know About Uncensored Podcast

As many of you know, the KSR crew taped a podcast on Friday night that included the Top 50 UK Players in the Post-Probation Era. It was 2 1/2 hours of good times and Drew Franklin, Beisner, Turkey Hunter, Tomlin and Hubby all provided great lines and some of the best stories about UK players you will hear anywhere. We had hoped to release it tonight, but we are having difficulties getting the correct system to actually sell the $2 podcast. You can’t do it on iTunes without calling it an “audiobook” (which we don’t qualify for) and direct purchase via PayPal is not something we yet are certain will work without any hitches. So we are working to get it done and as soon as we find something that is acceptable and not too much of a hassle, it will be ready. Or, we won’t be able to figure anything out and we will just hold it forever and randomly email it to people we know. Because of the content, we hoped to release it only to the true KSR fans, but for now, it is stopped by a common theme of all we have ever done…technical difficulties.

    How about split into two segments at 99 cents each?

    How about making a cassette tape and passing it around via US mail?

    I know this sounds crazy, but how about you put it out like a regular podcast and not charge a penny for it? I know I guess Im a dreamer but come on guys are you already that huge that you need to charge us for something that used to be free? So I gave my 2 cents worh so how about letting me get 1 minute as a free preview?

    Talk to Louis CK’s guys, he just put a video up for $5, via Paypal, and it came off without a hitch. He basically self-produced, and has a reputation for actually returning people’s emails, so it’s worth a shot.

    No, this isn’t spam. It’s actually a good idea.

    Please please please find a way to put this out via itunes. Call it an audiobook. Doug Benson, the comedian, does this all the time for special podcasts. So does Ricky Gervais. You guys can do this…let’s get some MKG spirit going and let’s see Drew Franklyn give MKG-like effort in getting this done. I’ve been waiting for these stories for a LONG TIME!

    I understand the concern for the content – I remember “a wooden leg named smith” – but “true KSR fans” is a ridiculous idea and $2 doesn’t prevent non-KSR fans from purchasing the podcast. It probably is a great way to make money, I’m ready to pay for it, but I just don’t understand why we can’t all be honest about it. KSR is better than that. Sure, after all the jokes about having to pay for content on other sites this looks kind of bad, but I still don’t see any reason to try and call it something it isn’t, because that looks worse.

    I have to agree with a few of the other comments. Sure who wouldn’t hate to make a few extra dollars, but why now? I’ve been a loyal reader since may of 2006, back when the site typically had 1 post a day. Throughout the years there have been a few well known principles the readers could count on: Mark Maggard is a turd, nerd fights are comedy gold, the site will undoubtably go down, mispelings, you will NEVER actually get that tee-shirt you “won”, talking about politics will draw ire of empty threats of no longer reading the site, “news” about Patterson/Lucas and most importantly, the staunch belief paying for any of the above is utterly rediculious and KSR will always be free.

    Sure the podcast may not be directly UK related, but so are half the posts on the site. Which is exactly what 1000’s of others and myself love about this site and what has propelled it to its current reign. Well that and the whole Patterson/Lucas thing.

    I’m not going vow my deflection (where the hell else would I go? Tipton and the leader?), I’m not even going to look upon you guys with any level of disdain or call you a sellout for charging $2 for the podcast. But much like any new age parents failed attempt to punish their child by telling them how disapointed they are, rather than putting the fear of God into them by requiring they go pick out their own switch, I’m a little disapointed.

    To me, it just doesn’t feel like following the roots of what KSR has always been. But push come to shove, sure I’ll pay the $2, seriously it’s only $2.

    It is only 2 bucks. This podcast is huge and they are normally free. Your paying for the bandwidth and the infrastructure..suck it up guys.

    Paypal is easy to work with, and really easy to set up for websites.



  30. Any way

    I don’t care how it gets released I just hope it will get out so we can enjoy it. A small fee is no problem. One of the best things about Matt is his wealth of information and memories about the last 20 yrs of UK Basketball. Well worth the money to listen.

    So, complain about sites charging for articles and then charge 2 bucks for a silly podcast? K

    I think the website bandcamp.com will let you do what you want.

    It’s for musicians primarily to sell songs/albums without going through iTunes.

    Wanted to release it only to “true KSR fans”? How about, wanted to release only to “anyone willing to pony up $2” instead?

    How about making it free, like most podcasts in the known universe?

    Guess the iTunes I downloaded last week in prep for this was a waste of time. Also, 2$ with the non censorship issues (language, and topics) might be good for younger listeners to not be able to get hold of this without parents consent.(not saying it is impossible for under age person to get a hold of it but, it’s a deterrent).

    For those that don’t want to pay, I totally understand…feel free to not buy it. No harm, no foul.

    As for why we are charging, I have explained that it is mostly to limit the amount of listeners and give money to those who participate in the podcast. The reality is that to get the old crew back together (many of whom have families and dont have four hours on a Friday night to record a podcast), we have to be able to pay them. If we didn’t charge, the reality is that we probably would not have been able to do it.

    We have given free things for 6 1/2 years..my guess is that the vast majority of fans do not care if we charge a small fee for something that we otherwise would not have done.

    Ok Matt, makes sense. I’ll pay you my $2 whenever you can figure out how to charge us.

    So, i went out a bought a computer, had Insight come install hi-speed at the crib, and opened and loaded up a new Itunes account in anticipation of a new bargain-priced podcast from KSR. Two dollars, I’d spend 200!
    Maybe you should record all telephone conversations between you guys and sell em for $.75!
    Or better yet, any time you guys all get together to hang out, invite one of us to hang with you, for the low price of $299.99.
