Better Call Saul – Podcast from Baltic Effect
I have received a lot of questions from Tucker’s Hole readers asking me if I was going to continue adding to the site by covering the new “Breaking Bad” prequel series “Better Call Saul”. Well, the answer is both No and Yes.
Due to the workload involved in writing the articles for this site, I couldn’t commit myself to covering “Better Call Saul” with the same depth and be sure that I could follow through for the duration of the series (and I hope it has a long run)! I might write about a special topic or episode from time to time, but I will not be writing about each episode like I did for “Breaking Bad”. That being said, I will still be putting my thoughts and analysis on each “Better Call Saul” episode out there for those who are interested, but through a different medium!
I have been given the opportunity to co-host a “Better Call Saul” podcast with “The Baltic Effect”! This podcast has an excellent pedigree, as it is the successor to the “Breaking Bad Edition” podcast by “Behind the Cutting Edge”. As mentioned in the Breaking Bad Podcast Guide, Behind the Cutting Edge was the first “Breaking Bad” podcast out there, and was the inspiration for Kelley Dixon (film editor on “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul”) to start the Breaking Bad Insider podcast for AMC Television. The Hosts from “Behind the Cutting Edge” formed “The Baltic Effect” when the founder of “Behind The Cutting Edge” decided not to continue podcasting after “Breaking Bad” ended.
I’m quite jazzed to be joining hosts Sadie and Trent to cover “Better Call Saul”. Each podcast begins with a trivia quiz about the latest episode that listeners can submit questions for. We then discuss the episode with our thoughts and insights. This is a free – wheeling conversation, like friends sitting around the living room talking about a show that they love, so it is not a scene by scene recap. We then read e-mail from listeners – and we read every one!
I invite you to join us by listening in! You can download the shows to your iDevice through iTunes, or listen online through TalkShoe. Our first episode (Covering “Better Call Saul” Episode 101 – “Uno” and Episode 102 – “Mijo”) is available now! You can access it from the links here:
“Better Call Saul” from Baltic Effect on iTunes
“Better Call Saul Uno and Mijo” from Baltic Effect – listen online
I will be posting links to each of our episodes when they come out, right here on Tucker’s Hole. You can also friend Baltic Effect on Facebook to stay informed when we release a new episode.
If you want to share your thoughts on an episode of “Better Call Saul” to be read on the podcast, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to contribute trivia questions about an episode, send them to our Quizmaster Sadie at email@example.com. (Don’t send trivia questions to the main e-mail address for Baltic Effect or Trent and I – the quiz participants – will see them before the quiz, and that just isn’t fair!).
“Better Call Saul” episodes air on Mondays on AMC, and we record the podcast on Wednesday evening (at 9 pm Eastern Time) so that is the deadline for quiz questions and e-mails. (Although if you have a late e-mail, we will read it the following week).
Finally, as always, if you wish to contact me, use the Contact / Feedback Form here on Tucker’s Hole!
I hope you’ll listen in!
