  • Gleeman & The Geek on KFAN!

    More Twins talk on the radio!

    I’m pleased to announce that KFAN 100.3 and Pickpointz are teaming up to broadcast the Gleeman and the Geek show Sundays from 4-5 PM starting Sunday April 15th. Based on the record-breaking weekly podcast, hosts Aaron Gleeman and John “Twins Geek” Bonnes will dissect the minutia of the games, relate minor league news, evaluate front office decisions and prognosticate the results of the upcoming week for their Pickpointz competition.

    In addition, they’ll tack on an extra half-hour “unplugged” to the show’s podcast, which you’ll be able to download from KFAN.com or on iTunes. PLEASE tune into KFAN 100.3 FM Sunday from 4-5 and let us know what you think!

      So will the unplugged part be podcastable or only the first hour?

      I read the next line and answered my own question.

      With this dedicated hour of Twins talk on KFAN, that will bring the grand total each week up to one hour (hyperbole intended.) More Twins talk; always a good decision.

      During the season, I think you'll hear quite a bit of Twins talk. PA does a LOT on the Twins, especially during that 11AM FSN hour. Common also talks about them quite a bit, especially with Rosen. Barreiro has Coomer and LaVelle on regularly. I'll grant you: it's never enough, and they won't talk about it as much as ESPN1500 who carrie the Twins, but I think you'll get quite a bit of baseball talk on KFAN.

      Great! Congrats! Just hope the "Bigs" don't compromise the spontaneity of the weekly podcasts - I have become addicted! (Well, maybe addicted is a bit strong.)

      I should clarify that my real point was that KFAN didn't have the kind analysis that you and Gleeman offer. I understand they are the Vikings network and are consequently going to talk about them all year 'round, and they do talk Twins to an extent, but your show will be a good addition for them. I moved out of state last fall and still podcast Barreiro and Common regularly. When you only get Fox Sports and ESPN national radio, you quickly start to miss local sports talk which is another reason the Gleeman and the Geek podcast was valuable for me. Congrats on the new gig.

      How will this effect the weekly ITunes Gleeman and the Geek Podcast?

      KFAN will put out much more object analysis then 1500. Unlike Phil Mackey and others, they will probably not take shots at their listeners for being dumb and misinformed.
