They dig into the start of the NFL season and everybody’s favorite pastime – fantasy football – with the Fantasy Guru podcast. Plus, Val shares how much she loves the Real Housewives as they listen to the brand new Girls In Heels podcast featuring Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The First Annual BlogTalkRadio Fantasy Football League

In an effort to get you the best fantasy advice, 10 shows got together to compete in a fantasy football season. You can hear the experts employing their different strategies. You can hear the weak attempts at playful smack talk. You can hear the utter disdain when things don’t work out. The good folks at volunteered to host the league (they are the home of FFToolbox and other fine fantasy podcasts). This is a recording of what happened on that fateful, draft night:

These are the participants of our First Annual BlogTalkRadio Fantasy Football League. The draft was merely the beginning. Download and listen to these shows all season long for the best fantasy advice around and find out who finishes on top.  

John Hansen representing Fantasy Guru

Online since 1995, is one of the oldest and most connected fantasy information sites on the planet. Merged with in 2008, they offer quality information and professional analysis from a staff that is predominantly comprised of individuals who cover and analyze the NFL full-time. The episodes featuring regular guest, Greg Cosell, are not to be missed. Even if John ran into a few issues drafting, I fear he’ll be a competitor to watch for.  

Matt Chatham representing Football By Football

A players-only roundtable discussion of NFL and college football topics offering listeners unparalleled insight into the game. Experienced. Real. Football insight by football players!  Matt really broke down the players as the draft went on. Always good to have a “real football” analyst in a fantasy draft.

Gary Davenport representing The Fantasy Sharks

There are two types of Fantasy Owners. Sharks and Chum. Which are you? Gary Davenport and Walton Spurlin look at which players fantasy owners should be marrying this year and who they should be asking for divorce. Gary was drafting with us, but couldn’t join us on the podcast. Which is a shame because I would have liked to hear why he drafted Teddy Bridgewater.

Dennis Farrell representing The Fantasy Sideline Show – 

Dennis Farrell is joined by some familiar old faces and some new ones to bring the Fantasy Sideline Show back to the top in fantasy sports entertainment. Dennis had to disappear early in the draft to take care of his kid, only opening the door for an excuse later this season when I beat him.  

Jeff Ratcliffe representing PFF Radio – 

PFF Radio provides award-winning football and fantasy football analysis for the thinking fan, powered by Pro Football Focus. Much like Matt, Jeff was also providing valuable breakdowns for all the players on his draft board – and he got to speak for Dennis once as well.  

Joel Henard representing The Fantasy Insiders podcast –

Host Joel Henard will sit down with co-host Mike Hilbig (@TheFantasyDR) from The Fantasy Insiders and get you up to date on the latest news and notes from around the baseball and football world. Hey, wait a second. Baseball??? What is baseball???

PodVader representing Next Fan Up – 

Next Fan Up is a twice a week check in with the people who know their NFL teams the best, the fans. We have 32 SuperFans, each representing one of the 32 NFL teams. And we speak with the occasional guest. I also drafted Mark Ingram much too early and I’m still willing to trade him for rather cheap.

Ramona Rice representing The Sports Gal Pal

The Sports Gal Pal is a show to help the novice fan find their team spirit and embrace their love of sports. If that isn’t enough you’ll at least learn why the sports fans in your life go a little nuts once in awhile. Ramona believes fantasy football is one of the best ways to initiate new fans into football.

Ashley Williams representing Her Fantasy Football

The Williams’ sisters – Ashley, Courtney, Brandon – are women talking to women about fantasy football. They’re the hosts, analysts and competitive. Except for Ashley, who drafted nothing but Denver Broncos for her fantasy team.  

Mark Morales-Smith representing (home of FF Toolbox) –

Since 1997, smart players have turned to FFToolbox for the best in fantasy football information on the ‘Net. They cover the latest news, topics and trends – all aimed at helping you dominate your fantasy football league this season. And one last thank you to for hosting our league this year.

At the end of this season, PodVader will be crowned champ <ahem>. I mean, someone will be crowned champion, complete with bragging rights and a spiffy trophy!

Cooper Lawrence and Real Housewives Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea launch “Girls in Heels” podcast with BlogTalkRadio

BlogTalkRadio is proud to announce the launch of “Girls in Heels” on Tuesday, August 25th.

“Girls in Heels” is an exciting project by prominent New York radio and TV personality Cooper Lawrence, with twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea, two of the stars of the iconic reality TV show “Real Housewives of New Jersey” on Bravo TV.

“We’re delighted to add Girls in Heels to our lineup at BlogTalkRadio,” said General Manager and Chief Architect, Andy Toh. “Their provocative discussions lead to conversations that are highly relatable and will resonate with a wide cross section of listeners.”

Cooper Lawrence commented, “Since the three of us first met and discovered our chemistry, we’ve been looking for the right project. The growth and intimacy of podcasting is perfect for us and BlogTalkRadio offered the right combination of independence, revenue generation and favorable terms that indicate their sensitivity to the needs of talent.”

The first episode of the show includes a report from the twins on a recent barbecue at the Giudice home and how Joe and the kids are doing while Teresa Giudice is in prison. Teresa G is currently serving 15 months at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT after she, and her husband Joe, pled guilty to bankruptcy fraud.

PodVader’s Geeky Summer

In case you missed it, summer officially arrived last week.  Some may argue it kicked off with a bang a month or so ago with the blockbuster movie, Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.  In any case, summer is here and whether it’s a movie, TV show, or comic book, our hosts have your inner geek covered for the summer.

How do we keep up with all these big comic book movies? The Marvel Cinematic Universe comes to the rescue, talking about all the latest news out of Marvel studios.  So if you missed the episode on Avengers 2, just go back and review it.  Plus, Matt and Jeff will get you ready for Ant Man in July.  And if you’re wondering what is going on with your favorite Marvel TV shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Daredevil, you can hear all about it on The Marvel Cinematic Universe.  

Speaking of TV, whether you’re in the mood to reminisce about the cartoons you watched as a kid like Jem and the Holograms or maybe something more recent in pop culture, The GeekCast Radio Network is a must-listen.  GCRN was founded by Steve Phillips and Mike Blanchard in 2009, as the two friends bonded on Twitter over their love of the Transformers cartoon.  Their mission is to “Unleash the Geek in YOU!”.  Steve talks about the decision to join BTR: “BlogTalkRadio has allowed us to grow beyond our current limitations. They know how to market podcasts, how to grow them, have connections with iTunes the rest of us only dream of, and can help us reach that next level.”


Comic books haven’t been just for kids for a long time now, often dealing with much darker topic matter than just whether or not Superman could beat the Hulk in a fight.  Seth Everett brings you The Hall of Justice.  His mission is to delve deeper into the social impact of the stories being told by comic book creators like Scott Kolins and Giancarlo Volpe.

One of the reasons I was a big fan of the radio growing up was the ability to tell stories and let my imagination play in the theater of the mind. Dopple Avenue Hurt, is a podcast featuring original fictional stories that is brilliantly produced by the guys at Sharkdropper Studios.  Jonathan, John, Nick, Robert, and Kyle all met in January of 2014 to discuss the vision and direction of the Sharkdropper production studio. Now, they are writing, editing, acting in, or hosting 10 different fiction / non-fiction podcasts.  Kyle says about joining BlogTalkRadio: “It can be hard to find your niche out there when there is so much content. We believe BlogTalkRadio will help us stand out in the crowd.”



Those are some of my favorite geeky shows.  Tweet @therealpodvader or @blogtalkradio some of your favorites.  Have a geek-tastic summer!  (Yes, I just typed that…)
