    Hey guys, I messaged Tursky awhile ago about the sound stuff, but have been away for a bit and just realized he left. If you need any help, shoot me a message. I used to work in recording studios and did plenty of mixes for radio stuff. There are some tricks to make it right.

    I listen to all four and they each offer something different (although TG2 and Monday’s Off are very similar).



    If I’m being constructively critical, however, The Gear Dive is very hard to finish sometimes. The audio quality is often awful, as discussed ad nauseam. Johnny has recently become much better interviewer but needs to continue focusing on asking a question, then letting the subject answer it. Often, he keeps asking the same question in different phrasing, sometimes even offering the answer. But, like I said, he is getting much, much better and I find him affable.



    Clearly, the best interviewer is Williams. He often ventures out of the gear realm but if you give 19th Hole the chance, he does a very fine job... And he can deliver the copy “These guys have the most amazing packages”, without laughing (although we may be hearing take 14?).

    TG2 just isn’t there yet with the new guy, and I think them not being in the same room kills the flow. Really loved Monday’s off but its really suffering without tursky. Gear dive is great but Johnny has to stop interrupting the guest and bringing up his father or wife every show. I wish 19th hole was on its own feed so I wouldn’t even play it on accident, can’t stand it.

    I’m curious what you don’t like another 19th hole? Williams? Guests? Topics? I, obviously incorrectly, assumed that everyone viewed that as the most polished podcast.

    Audio quality would make it easier to listen too, Wrx hosts come across fine but guest are hit and miss. The cobra one was so broken up and jumpy and then others are either quiet or screaming load.

    I’ve said this before but I really dislike the way Williams comes across. To me it’s like he spends half the time bragging about where he’s been and what he’s done and everyone is his best friend. I also hate that he has to reset and remind us we are listening to the 19th hole like we just tuned in on drive time radio or something, very annoying on a podcast. No argument that it’s the most polished but it doesn’t fit with what I like about wrx: the forums, the sense of community and advice and shared experiences. The other pods capture that better IMO.

    I thought they were just going to combine the pods. I prefer TG2, so it's not bad having 2 shows that are similar. Rob's definitely not Tursky, but I will give him time to get comfortable. Not being in the same room obviously does change the dynamic and potential additional daily content.

    I think it would be weird without any intro music. I would try and find something that fits you and rob. Maybe try one week without any music and then try some different intro music.

    As someone who has never missed an episode of any of the podcasts (with the now exception of 19th Hole which I will touch on below) I would like to offer my 2 cents. I do fully recognize that 2 cents may be over estimating the worth. Keep in mind, I am a huge GolfWRX radio fan. Please take this as just one man's opinion. If you change nothing I would still be a loyal listener.



    TG2 - Love the content and the variety. Good mix of forum thread discussion, OEM guys, etc. Yes it was better with Tursky but I enjoyed his dry sense of humor. As others have mentioned it seems that finding your stride with Rob is more challenging when the two of you are not sitting in the same room. I enjoyed the episodes when forum members called in. Always good to hear other equipment psychos chatting about their bags, testing, etc.



    Monday's Off - I was terrified that when Tursky left that this would go away. Thank you Brian for keeping it going. Other than Tursky busting Steve's chops for having a day off nothing has really changed. Having grown up at a golf course I find the golf club culture entertaining with the various personalities. The pain that Steve has to go through while putting a fake smile on his face while Mrs. Havenkamp is describing her string of 3 net bogies on the back nine shot by shot is hilarious. Feel free to dive into more **** member stories, however I do recognize the potential risk for Steve. Always a good reminder for me not to become one.



    The Gear Dive - Johnny, you have the best guests. Titans of the golf industry in my opinion. Good on you for getting these guys to come on. PLEASE stop interrupting them. I could go on with examples from just about every episode. Perhaps it's the audio quality issues, which others have pointed out but not necessarily too big of a deal for me. Maybe it makes communication more challenging. I would have loved to hear Jay expand on the shaft is a spring concept but you felt the need to chime in with your interpretation of a what the purpose of a shaft is. No offense but I would rather hear Jay. Please don't take this as hateful because it's not intended to be that way. I get excited every time a new Gear Dive episode gets posted. I am a loyal listener and will continue to be. May the magic stay with you in regards to the quality of your guests.



    The 19th Hole - I have to be honest and say I have made the conscious decision not to listen anymore. Michael, I don't know your background but I feel that you try too hard to demonstrate that you are a professional broadcaster and not a **** who jumped in front of a mic and started talking. Personally, I don't mind the ****. Sometimes the cheese oozes in great quantity. One example was the Barbara Nicklaus episode. Don't quote me on specifics here but when the conversation turned to visiting or something of that nature the repeating of the catch phrase of "You had me at hello" or something similar was nauseating. Also, I don't need to be reminded in the middle of the episode of who you are and what I am listening to. Maybe it's the content as I am a club guy and the majority of your episodes cover a variety of golf related topics. I don't state this in a hateful manner. Surely there is someone out there who loves the 19th Hole and I am the weird one. It's not you, it's me.

I could go on with examples from just about every episode. Perhaps it's the audio quality issues, which others have pointed out but not necessarily too big of a deal for me. Maybe it makes communication more challenging. I would have loved to hear Jay expand on the shaft is a spring concept but you felt the need to chime in with your interpretation of a what the purpose of a shaft is. No offense but I would rather hear Jay. Please don't take this as hateful because it's not intended to be that way. I get excited every time a new Gear Dive episode gets posted. I am a loyal listener and will continue to be. May the magic stay with you in regards to the quality of your guests.






    He mentioned on the last episode that there will be some changes in the new year. Hopefully those changes include him talking way way way way less. On the last episode he had some guy I'd never heard of but sounded like he had an interesting story about his business but Johnny went on and on about his father and learning to become a man on the golf course or something. Sure, great message and all but people are tuning in to hear insight from golf equipment insiders, not Johnny's golf in the kingdom diatribes.

    As someone who has never missed an episode of any of the podcasts (with the now exception of 19th Hole which I will touch on below) I would like to offer my 2 cents. I do fully recognize that 2 cents may be over estimating the worth. Keep in mind, I am a huge GolfWRX radio fan. Please take this as just one man's opinion. If you change nothing I would still be a loyal listener.



    TG2 - Love the content and the variety. Good mix of forum thread discussion, OEM guys, etc. Yes it was better with Tursky but I enjoyed his dry sense of humor. As others have mentioned it seems that finding your stride with Rob is more challenging when the two of you are not sitting in the same room. I enjoyed the episodes when forum members called in. Always good to hear other equipment psychos chatting about their bags, testing, etc.






    We love talking to the members as well, it is a great insight to who they are and how they got there. Let us know who you would want to have on the show and we can work on twisting their arms!

    I loved the first few episodes of the gear dive with the Artisan Guys, Jeff Sheets, CH3 etc, especially hearing stories about preferences or quirks that different players have. I loved hearing how Ryan Moore stockpiles his XP shafts.



    Seems like the last few are just promo pieces...I had to switch the latest one with Rickie off after 5 minutes because it was just the same question over and over again. Of course there were no challenges or issues with switching the ball, of course it is better in every way the guy just got paid 7 figures to switch!



    I'll still always listen because i'm a gear head, but i'm not quite as excited to see new episodes as I was at the start. Just my $0.02

    Now that Ryan is officially with WRX, why not add him to the Gear Dive Podcast to help flesh out more content. We don't need the Gear Dive to turn into the 19th Hole.

    Johnny Wunder continues to lower the bar.



    I don't think you could have had a more inarticulate guest than Bill Price. With his 3rd grade vocabulary Bill tried to push how "premium" his putter is.



    If anyone played a drinking game off of "premium" theyd be dead from alcohol poisoning before the end of the podcast.

    The PXG guy just washed his hands of their products by saying he just started.

    I'm a big fan of the pods, but I sure wish Johnny would let his guests talk more. His long winded rambling "questions" just take up space. I don't tune in to listen to hear his voice, I listen to hear his guests. The one with Joel Kribel was particularly bad, I was really excited to hear his story and how he got to PXG and after 20 minutes of listening to Johnny try to get out a question, I turned it off. I understand that none of these guys are professional interviewers but abiding by the "less is more" approach might make things a little easier to listen to...

    I'm showing a couple of them from last week - might have just taken the week off.



    That one has always seemed a bit strange to me. It is almost like they are recording an on-air radio show and posting it as a podcast. There are rock music lead-in/lead-outs to a non-existent commercial break. And some "when we get back, we'll have _____ with _____ golf company." But what are you getting back from? The 5 second music break? It has just always seemed a little too overly produced for me.

    I used to think the same, but after listening to Johnny Wunder, I really appreciate Michael William's professionalism.



    Johnny should spend some time with Michael learning how it's done.

    Joel Kribel was the one that killed the episode. Johnny started his line of questions about the PXG equipment, and Joel replied saying he had nothing to do with any of the old stuff. Johnny had no where to go after that.



    Maybe Johnny asked the wrong question

    The new on spec podcast is pretty fun. Anyone know how to reach out and ask a question?
  • Timbo929Timbo929 Advanced Members Posts: 331 ✭✭
    GolfWRX podcasts are my favorite golf podcast by far during my commute. I rate them as below(1 being the best):



    1) Monday's off - super real and funny, solid team.

    2) on spec- really interesting, wish they had a way to ask questions, solid dude.

    3) TG2 - it's good.



    4) gear dive- depends on guest to be on 4 or 5 spot

    5) 19th hole - depends on guest to be on 4 or 5 spot



    how do you rate the podcasts?



    and what are you feelings about them?



    curious to hear the members thoughts..



    thank you.
  • BottleCapBottleCap Advanced Members Posts: 1,201 ✭✭
    Here's my list



    1a. TG2 - I miss Tursky, but this is my favorite, it's like regular guys talking golf.

    1b. Mondays Off - I like Knudsen better than the original host, too much wasted time with Tursky, I really enjoy hearing about what happens behind the scenes and the thought that goes into things at golf facilities.

    3. 19th hole - best radio quality podcast out there

    4. Gear Dive - I think Ian Fraser should be added as a co-host



    Still getting a feel for On Spec, i really like Ryan's YouTube stuff.



    I wish a Geoff Shackelford podcast can be added since he's no longer on a podcast



    I'm really grateful for the GolfWRX podcasts due to all the bad podcasts out there (Fairway Rollin, No Laying Up, Shane Bacon, GolfDigest)



    Other good podcasts out there are Fried Egg, Shotgun Start, Erik Anders Lang, Golf.com

    There has to be someone else who can host Gear Dive. Johnny spends more time explaining his own history or tell players or club makers about their own business than the guests do answering the “questions.” It’s by far the most interesting premise for a podcast relating to this forum it just has to have a better host.

    I listen to a lot of golf but if it's a "recap" of anything, I'm out.

    Again, add Ryan to the Gear Dive as well. Hopefully have 2 hosts versus 1 limits the amount that Wunder can walk over the guest.
