Stadium Scene’s Main Event

Stadium Scene’s Main Event

There are a lot of amazing stories in the world of sports that you'll never hear about. From small publishers who are members of our StadiumScene.TV Network (Ten Minutes With...), stories you thought you knew (Sports Stories), and interviews with guests that you've heard of (An Interview With...). StadiumScene.TV's Main Event takes that deeper dive into the sports world and looks at the good, the bad, the funny, and the controversial topics that are what we love about sports. Join co-hosts D.J. Fluck, Kate Thompson, and Ralph Schudel as we hear their stories.

It's been well over a year since the last episode of Stadium Scene's Main Event. In this special edition we talk about what's been up, officially welcome our long-time friend Ralph Schudel to the team, and go over the direction of Stadium Scene in 2024 and beyond. Initially, we talked about 2023 and how the law known as "Section 230" and the formal end of the COVID-19 pandemic shifted our strategy. Had the US...

Yes indeed, we still record this show!  Kate had a scheduling conflict, but D.J. runs the show (long as usual when he is by himself) and is joined by Joshua Gupton and Trevor Everette of The Two Pointers Podcast!  The Two Pointers Podcast is the latest member of the Stadium Scene Network and they have easily a top five epic story about how the two of them met dating back to elementary school.  It's very clear their l...

D.J. and Kate are back with the second "Ten Minutes With..." episode of 2022.  Yes, we know the episode is 24 minutes long.  Just like the Big Ten Conference, we cannot count either.  

Today we are joined by Gianna Belcastro, host of "Women's Sports Matter Podcast".  Gianna is another "pandemic created podcast" that has continued on even after most of the pandemic created podcasts have ended.  They feature ...

After a long hiatus, Kate and D.J. are back with the first Ten Minutes With... of 2022!  Today they are joined by Sean and Drew of "Winning Losers Podcast".  We get right into discussing how they met through a mutual friend and what the inspiration was for starting a podcast.  We side track and talk successful college coaches who have flopped in the NFL, stand up comedy, and the most awkward time Sean bombed on stage...

In our next episode of "Play x Play," Kate and D.J. discuss "Lucky Bastard" by Joe Buck.  Pretty much all of us have seen Joe Buck call either an NFL or MLB game for FOX at some point in the last 30 years and he is often one of the more criticized announcers of our generation.  That being said, we discuss the book and overall thought it was very open, honest, and entertaining to the point that when it was released in 2016...

Today Kate and D.J. are joined by blogger, Chelsea Renee of "Chat With Chelsea Renee.  Chelsea is based in the southeastern US and writes about all things Atlanta sports (Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta United, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Dream), along with Alabama sports, and women's sports.

Today we look at the story behind what caused the infamous power outage at Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz SuperDome in New Orleans, LA,, featuring the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers back on February 3, 2013.  We even feature the clip where friend of the show and former Ravens safety, Bernard Pollard talks about being on the field and his reaction to the lights shutting off during the game.  Since most peo...

We're trying something new this week over at the show.  Once a month, Kate and D.J. will be discussing a book on the topic of sports or journalism.  This was NOT a paid review or promotion by the author or publisher of the book.  A list is compiled by Kate and D.J. and the book each month is selected at random.  

For our first episode, "Talking to GOATs" by Jim Gray is discussed.  He is a reporter who just ...

So we said last week when we released episode 100 that it was difficult to edit because there was just so much good material and we wanted to keep the show around the one-hour mark.  We couldn't let all this good material go to waste, so episode 101 is the best of what got cut from episode 100!  Note that some of these segments appeared in episode 100, but we have the full unedited segment.  The first segment is D.J....

It's hard to believe when we started our show as a podcast in February of 2017 that we would ever reach 100 episodes.  In fact, as of 2020, we only had 35.  Add 65 more shows between March of 2020 and today and here we are with milestone episode 100!  We decided the only appropriate way to celebrate 100 episodes is to talk about our previous 99 episodes, take a shot of Malört and visit with our first partners that he...

Kate is at the vet getting rabies shots...I assume for her dog and not for her, which is a bummer because Kate missed out on a discussion with a Wisconsin-based podcast, "In a League of Their Own Podcast", featuring Collin and Austin.  

Collin and Austin talk about how they met and how the show is about to be a family event.  In addition, we get into the local hockey scene in Wisconsin and how they have connections to pla...

With the Tokyo Summer Olympics coming up, we thought it would be appropriate to bring on someone to talk about competitive swimming.  There is always an uptick in interest in competitive swimming after the Olympics.  

Our guest today is Erik Richardson, Assistant Coach for Men's and Women's Swimming at Olivet College in Olivet, Michigan.  Erik was a swimmer for the University of Evansville and has coached at club, hi...

So apparently now Zoom tells you in an AM radio quality audio that your meeting is recorded.  Definitely caught us off guard at the start today and it was too good to edit out, so that's the opening today.

We're super excited to sit down with Ashleigh Binder of Sports As Told By a Girl.  Ashleigh partnered with us in our early days of the site and has published over 300 articles to our site since joining us in 2018!  ...

Kate is back with us today and we kick off our cold open talking about our interview with Phil Schoen from BeIN Sports (skip to 4:16 unless you want to hear Ray Hudson's greatest call ever in D.J.'s opinion).  Phil has been a staple of the soccer announcing community for three decades and covered everything from low-level soccer to professional level, and even the World Cup for ESPN, Fox, GolTV, and now BeIN Sports.
