PODCAST: The Silence of the Fans

The download for the OBR's Tuesday night radio program is now available. If you haven't listened in, check out the always-free radio show download and podcast file. We hope you'll find it a refreshing change from other Browns talk shows...

Inoperative telephones didn't stop Barry, Jeff and Fred from talking to Browns fans through email and the chat room, as the gang talked about the Browns 1-4 start to the season. The team's offensive coordinator, Mo Carthon, was a major topic of discussion.

The show is available for podcast download on the OBR's fan-driven Muni Lot at:


We think this program is a real alternative to the normal sports talk fare. AM radio call-in shows tend to be filled with anger and venting after a loss, but the OBR program is fortunate to have some of the most-informed and clear-thinking callers around. It's a show where the callers actually add value to the program rather than just erecting a soapbox for the show hosts.

No one gets cut off, no one gets yelled at. It's sort of strange if you haven't listened to it before, honestly.

Fred Greetham and Jeff Schudel, both of whom have more than two decades of experience covering the Browns, lend their insight to the caller's questions and comment on the analysis offered up by fans.

The OBR radio program has put together the highest-rated shows in the history of SportsTalkCleveland.com, a figure which includes the years when the internet station was aligned with local sports-talk mainstay WKNR.

Give the podcast a listen and hear for yourself why Browns fans have been turning to an alternative which relies on insight, observation, facts, and the occasional stab at humor rather than loud arguments and slick soundbites.
