Not sure what could come of a podcast, but it's better than not having a podcast, right?

Just listened to the POD cast and have to say it accomplished one thing with me.

I have always been a solo player that plays modern MLB, historical, and random debut. When Perfect Team first came out i did not think it was my cup of tea, but after listening to the POD cast I have been convinced to try Perfect Team.

Thanks.

OOTP Now - Episode 2 now available!

Hi everyone! Our second episode is now available!

This power-packed episode features two great segments. Up first, an in-depth interview with Out of the Park Developments CEO and Lead Designer Markus Heinsohn, talking about why and how the new Perfect Team mode in Out of the Park Baseball 19 is such an important moment in the company's history. Next, OOTP Head of Community T.J. Lauerman and Perfect Team Community Manager Kris Jardine talk about the incredible first full week of Perfect Team - and make a couple of special announcements that you will not want to miss! Your host throughout is me, Out of the Park Developments Chief Marketing Officer Rich Grisham.

The podcast has been officially submitted to iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify, and we hope to hear back from all of them very soon that they are live on those services.

In the meantime, you can check it out right here (along with episode 1 if you missed it):

Will the podcasts eventually venture into talk about OOTP itself, or is this something which was created mainly for Perfect Team?

They will hit on everything for sure! They tend to be more Perfect Team-focused right now because the mode is new and there are lots of new players asking about it. But as we get closer to OOTP 20 there will be lots of discussions about that, as well as FHM and anything else we have cooking.

OOTP Now - Episode 5 now available!

Happy New Year!

With so many people jumping on the Franchise Hockey Manager 5 train during this year's big Steam Winter Sale (which is still going strong through January 3 with both OOTP 19 and FHM 5 on sale for 75% off!) we brought FHM producer Jeff Riddolls on the show this week to offer an introduction to the game and a bunch of different ways to jump in and play Franchise Hockey Manager 5. Plus! Community Lead T.J. Lauerman and Perfect Team Community Manager Kris Jardine join Rich Grisham to chat all about This Week In Perfect Team, their perspective successes (and failures) in the previous week of Perfect Team, and answer listener questions!

I can't imagine why some people are concerned that Perfect Team is going to become the focus of OOTP development.

As an old school/throw back OOTP player, I am very worried.
