There has been a Dictate the Game podcast kicking around for quite a while. Alongside the articles we write and cover here we also talk nonsense online so you can listen to it as well. For a long time we had been hosting this on youtube at the DTG channel. You can see we have around 20 episodes covering FM19 if they take your fancy.
We even had a go at live recording via Twitch. If you follow DTG there you can potentially see some of our Football Manager discussions on there too.
The line up has changed as our writing team has changed, and with the launch of FM20 we decided to shake up and change the podcast. We are about 9 episodes in, and have made it to over a 1000 listens, but though it would be good to cover what we have been doing.
New Podcast Format
With rebirth of Dictate the Podcast we restructed the pod to really streamline the Football Manager we talk about. We start off with the Team Report, where we discuss the recent articles released in more depth, often with the author. We then move onto one of our favourite sections in the Opposition Analysis, where we discuss what we have been reading, watchin and listening to in the FM community. Time permitting we have our Match section for a FM inspired quiz. Then we finish it all off we questions from the community, or as we sometimes call it Letters for Luke.
One of the things we really want from the podcast is to make it about the community. What we write and do is only a small part of that and we really enjoy spending the majority of the podcast talking about what other people are producing, and answering/debate the questions the community has been asking.
Dicate the Podcast: Season 2
So far in this new season we have covered getting the sack, moneyball, community owned clubs, Bielsa, youth rankings, public beta’s, player traits, Ryan’s food fetish, anchormen, targetmen and 1000 goal strikers. To name but a few. This has all been during our Match Report where we cover the goings on at Dictate the Game.
Opposition Analysis and #WeAreTheCommunity
We want to be a fairly community orientated pod. After all there’s a ton of awesome content out there and we want to share what we enjoy.
And we want to cover even more. If there’s something out there that you love and we’ve missed, just let us know. We can’t watch/read/listen to it all so we need you to point us in the right direction.
Where to Find it?
As we are using Anchor.Fm to host the podcast you can find it directly on there or by clicking here.
Due to the magic that is Anchor.Fm the podcast is also distributed on a range of other sites to make it even easier than before to listen to our FM20 related nonsense.
