Brews On The Balcony 5/29/18 – Adapt or Sink: How the World of Media is Changing

With the recent growth of the fan base and the kind words that the show has received over the past few weeks, the guys from the Brews On The Balcony Podcast have decided to expand from two shows a week to three.

The plan is to continue the same show twice a week, but then add in a “bonus pod” in the middle of the week. The bonus pod will mainly be in depth discussions about one main topic. Eventually that slot will be open for interviews once those start happening on a regular basis. The podcast currently releases a new episode every Tuesday and Thursday, but will be switching to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the next two weeks.

In this week’s “Bonus Pod”, T.J. and Nick discuss how media outlets are trying to change with the times… Which outlets are hitting it out of the park and which are falling… The way that media is consumed in this day and age is great for the creative world… It’s very inexpensive for people to get their content out to the public nowadays… We don’t know what direction our “business” is going to go, all we know is that we enjoy doing this stuff and will continue to do it…

Submit topics and give your feedback to T.J. and Nick by leaving a voicemail (314-877-8597), tweeting at us (@BalconyBrewsPod), or emailing us (tjweber@fromthetapsports.com)…

Big Web’s 2018 Preakness Picks

Good afternoon ladies & gentlemen, Tony and T.J. Weber live from beautiful FAIRMONT PARK Collinsville,IL….
It’s The 143rd running of The Preakness Stakes!!!! Oh Baby, we’re loving Justify…

That’s right boys & girls looks like the odds are going to be short, but there is no reason that this horse should not repeat. In fact, I’m betting the exacta repeats as well.

Let’s take a 5 horse box for fun….
Justify, Good Magic, Sporting Chance,
Quip, and Lone Sailor. $1 ticket for $60

Let’s take a $30 exacta Justify over Good Magic, and a $10 exacta Good Magic over Justify.

Sporting chance and Lone Sailor will improve their chances in this shorter field vs the one they faced in the Derby.

Total investment $100. Good luck!
