Exciting News From NETimeGambling

Today’s post is more about NETimeGambling than New England Today. It’s Exciting News From NETimeGambling

Announcement #1

Today is our 1000th post!

Oddly enough, the post announcing the 1000th post IS the 1000th post. Ironic, don’t you think? It’s not easy reporting on such a small piece of the country’s casino pie when it comes to the gambling podcast, vlog, & blogosphere.

Exciting News From NETimeGambling

When we started in 2013:

  • Maine only had the Hollywood Bangor Racetrack, Hotel, and Casino.
  • Rhode Island had Twin River Casino (no hotel and no table games), and Newport Grand Slots was still alive.
  • Massachusetts had passed the Expanded Gaming Act and was desperately trying to get Plainridge Park up and running.

It was definitely a fun time to start reporting on New England’s Casino Expansion.

Many posts have been published and put away in the internet graveyard. I saved a few for your amusement:

“The time has come,” the walrus said, “to talk of many things: Of shoes and ships – and sealing wax – of cabbages…” and NETG adding a podcast.

This is not your full-out, “You Can Bet On That” type of Podcast. WordPress has partnered with Anchor. WordPress posts can now easily be turned into podcasts. The New England Casino and Gambling Podcast will extend the website with short audio blasts of the same recent posts. At times, I’ll dip into the archives and bring back something I feel is relevant.

What’s It All About, Binbin?

I’ll be shocked If any episode goes beyond 10 minutes. But you’ll be able to listen to the post instead of reading it. Cool, eh?

The inspiration came from Michael Trager and TravelZork’s podcast ZorkCast. “Got Nine Minutes?” was their theme. Related Post – Why Aren’t You Following TravelZork

Brain Stuff – Your Daily Serving of Smart is the second influence. These podcast episodes are between 4-8 minutes and cover a world of topics, mostly non-gambling.

And so, The New England Casino and Gambling Podcast was born. You can find it on the NETimeGambling website, Spotify, and Apple. More specifics will be forthcoming once I get my feet wet.

Here’s the trailer. Give a listen.

Thanks
