This week on the blog I am introducing an audio channel. This SoundCloud page will be the home of weekly Flying Knee Podcast episodes, featuring your host, me, T.J. Hitchings. This will eventually become a weekly discussion hour where the hottest news and current events in the sport will be broken down from the fans perspective. I am very excited to begin this portion of the site, as podcasting has become one of the most popular mediums of sports and entertainment media. Below is a quick intro to what this podcast will contain, and why I am starting it.

Creating this podcast has been an interesting experience so far. I have never been a fan of listening to my own voice, but this venture will force me to get over that. Listening to podcast’s like “The MMA Hour”, “The Fighter and the Kid”, and “The Joe Rogan Experience”, I have picked up on a lot of tips for how a good podcast should sound. I am excited to get to work on hot topics to start each week’s show, as well as looking ahead to the next major MMA fight card. Using SoundCloud as a host service I will be able to share my audio tracks across a number of social media outlets, as well as here on the FKMMA home page.
Using Audacity to record the intro was not a struggle for me as I have experience recording with it in the past. I enjoy the editing process and actually find it quite therapeutic. I am so excited for whats to come with this podcast, and I really feel it will be the standout piece from this site.
Next week on the podcast I’ll be breaking down the UFC 209 fight card, headlined by Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson. Be sure to check back to on the FKMMA homepage to be the first one to hear it!
