Not for me
I’ve been looking for more Bengals coverage since the season is upon us. The Bengals Beat Podcast isn’t for me. Not sure who at the Enquirer is signing off on this production but it has to be questioned. This podcast reminds me of what it would sound like if NPR made a football podcast. I looked up the host. Not sure what media credentials she has except she tweets A LOT or just retweets other people’s work. The actual journalist , Tyler, seems to be informed and has good points but it didn’t hold my interest. There was another kid on there but wasn’t sure of his role but he at least sounded eager and not like a scripted robot like the host did. I prefer host that aren’t afraid to say negative things. Host that challenge ownership or question coaching decisions etc. Overall, there are much better Bengals Podcast out there.
Not worth the time
This podcast was top notch when PDJ was on it, but it’s not worth listening to now. Lindsay Patterson and Tyler Dragon are unbearable.
I tried but After listening to this podcast it became pretty obvious this group doesn’t want to hurt their chances/access with the Bengals Organization. Here’s a hint. If you want people to listen to your podcast then you need to be critical of an organization that deserves criticism. Take the rose colored glasses off and be real.
The host, Lindsay, sounds like a know it all cheerleader who can’t formulate a real take. It’s almost like she practices her lines before recording. Add in her annoying accent/pronunciation and bland cliche points and it makes me want to turn off the podcast. Tyler seems to be somewhat in touch (he’s the actually reporter) but I don’t sense he’s been around long enough to understand the history of being a Bengal fan. He can’t relate.
Overall, I feel like I could go to Applebee’s and get more insightful opinions from the bartender. There are too many other quality Bengals Podcast to waste time on this one. It’s sad because I used to love this podcast when Paul and Jim where running the show.
