The Jester’s Court Podcast: Building The Kings Herald (with Blake Ellington)

How we made the sweetest lemonade from the lemons that were savagely thrown at us.

We are back! 

Lots of work went into The Kings Herald, but none of it would have been possible without Blake Ellington and his team behind the scenes. 

We go over all the work that went into the site from inception and where we want to go from here. We also learn a little bit about Blake's past covering the Kings. 

As always, thank you for coming with us to our new home! We will be back soon!

Blake, thank you for your outstanding work! The Kings Herald is fortunate to have you on board. Would love to hear more about Kosta Koufos’s humor. 🙂

Enjoyed the podcast, Bradley!

Ideas:

VIDEO:

Since you guys are talking about video work: how about some zoom interviews with people? There was a short discussion in one thread about having the Herald staff do a mock draft of the all-time NBA greats. If that’s too much work, how about an video interview with Rob Hessing so he can show us that infamous Kings memorabilia shrine he has in his office?

PODCAST INTERVIEW GUESTS:

Grant Napear: I mean, it sounds like I’m joking. But why the hell not extend the olive branch. At least then we can say, “Hey, we gave him a chance to defend himself….but since he didn’t, have at it with all of your jokes about him”

Slamson: I’ve never heard a word from him! If not Slamson the Lion, maybe the actor who plays him, to give us a behind-the-scenes look at th work involved.

Walt Williams: I saw he’s active on Twitter. If not him, any other Kings from years ago.

CONTESTS:

How about some weekly trivia games? Or it could be a one-time Zoom interactive trivia night thing opened up to all the members of TKH. Give away the new TKH t-shirt as a prize!

MISCELLANEOUS:

An Ebert-Siskell (or Roepert) styled review show of basketball movies, starring Bradley and Greg.
