In the Time of COVID-19 Handball Podcast Options Increase Exponentially

Handball Podcast Options Expand Dramatically

For many years handball fans had limited options for getting their handball fix via podcasts. I started occasionally doing podcasts with this website back in 2006 and then the (Un)Informed Handball Hour arrived on the scene in 2017.

Now with many folks trapped at home and Zoom and other platforms making the task of creating a podcast a lot simpler there are now several podcasts to choose from. Here are four new options to check out.

Straight Handball Talk

This new podcast is the brainchild of New York City Team Handball Club’s, Bini Moustafa, and he has already dropped 24 episodes seemingly out of nowhere. The podcast features 1 on 1 interviews with a mix of U.S. and International handball athletes and personalities including some big names like Laszlo Nagy and Jerome Fernandez. The theme of the podcasts is the power of handball to connect people and create friendships through competition.

Shootin’ Straight

Shootin’ Straight is a joint effort of Ohio State Coach and Columbus Armada GK, J.D. Orr, and Detroit Handball Club’s, Joey Williams. This podcast is broadcast live on Twitch on Saturday nights and also can be seen later via YouTube. As a weekly podcast they typically have a variety of topics and they’ve even experimented with some non-handball guests talking to get some feedback from other sports about how to grow handball in the U.S. Also, of note: as a live broadcast it’s even possible to interact directly with the hosts.

Alberta Team Handball Federation Podcast

Alberta Team Handball has been creating content for years on their social media channels, often with Video Logs (Vlogs) highlighting their overseas trips. Recently, they started a podcast with ATHF Director, Mike Nahmiash interviewing players like Greg Chauvet about how they got started with handball and playing in Europe.

Danilo Rojevic Instagram Interviews

While not branded as a podcast, San Francisco Cal Heat‘s Danilo Rojevic has conducted several interviews recently on Instagram. I enjoyed listening to his interview with Dallas Team Handball‘s Sascha Kiehne.
