The Voice of the Nation Podcast with Andrew Rafner and David Brickley will guide you through the capillaries and ventricles of the Lakers Nation.

Andrew and David convene for the Wednesday edition of the Voice of the Nation Podcast and are joined by special guest Ramona Shelburne of the Daily News and Papa Bear, Kam Pashai, checks in to debrief the TLN Vegas Trip. David also ridicules Andrew about his fashion sense.

    Ok, guys I hope you reply to this. I am real passionate about sports journalism and it will be my life, this is what I am going to do. So I am always working on my trade. I think its evident that each week we grow and become more and more comfortable with the layout of the show. I know I cant be 100 percent perfect but I personally will continue to work on my trade every single day until one day I become one of the best. So here it is, if you guys can fill out this Voice of the Nation survey I would be very appreciative.

    QUESTIONAIRE for the Voice of the Nation…

    What is the best part of the Voice of the Nation?

    What part do you most likely fast forward?

    Can you think of a segment that you would you like to be added?

    Can you see myself or Andrew suceeding in the Sports Jounalism / Media industry for a career?

    What aspect personally should WE work on? (constructive criticism is welcomed)

    What so far is most impressive?

    Would you recommend this show to all Lakers fans?

    On a scale from 1-10 how professional does the Voice of the Nation sound?

    If you turned us on in the car does it sound like all the other pro shows out there, that have sound guys, producers, etc?

    Other suggestions?

    Many thanks to all those who reply to this comment, and help us out making this cast the best it can possibly be!

    What is the best part of the Voice of the Nation?
    The interviews! I love it when you guys have a guest. More guest would be great to have. Shows off Andy and D’s interview skills.

    What part do you most likely fast forward?
    Andrew’s Yays. ;)

    Can you think of a segment that you would you like to be added?
    Facial hair conversation!!! Hahaha. Just kidding, David. ;) Personally, I’d love more users to call the voicemail but thats something you guys can’t control.

    If ESPN, FOX sports, etc hired me tomorrow could you see me succeeding on a national scene?
    For sure, bro. I don’t even have to think about it.

    What aspect personally should WE work on? (constructive criticism is welcomed)
    I mentioned this in the first podcast to you guys but it’s something very hard to control, to stop talking between eachother. Other than that, yo both are doing awesome!

    What so far is most impressive?
    The chemistry you both have and the basketball knowledge you both have.

    Would you recommend this show to all Lakers fans?
    YES!!! AND TO ALL NBA FANS.

    On a scale from 1-10 how professional does the Voice of the Nation sound?
    9. The last two shows have been the best podcasting I’ve ever listened too. Seriously.

    If you turned us on in the car does it sound like all the other pro shows out there, that have sound guys, producers, etc?
    The editing can be tweaked a bit, I’ve noticed some of the songs start too early but other than that. The podcast is produced and edited great.

    Other suggestions?
    MORE RADIOHEAD! :D

    QUESTIONAIRE for the Voice of the Nation…

    What is the best part of the Voice of the Nation?
    Well I listen to the podcast when I can… I might of missed one or two… but one of the parts I enjoyed was when the fans called in!

    What part do you most likely fast forward?

    I usually listen to the whole podcast but there are times when Andrew gets off topic with his random humor and… I usually fast forward that! but again…. maybe it makes the show! …. just inst to professional!

    Can you think of a segment that you would you like to be added?

    Cant think of one… but the call in segment was pretty cool!

    Can you see myself or Andrew suceeding in the Sports Jounalism / Media industry for a career?

    I def. can see you David succeeding in sports journalism! You have the voice, the enthusiasm, and the knowledge to succeed very far! Andrew has a good view on certain things and a good knowledge on basketball as well… Both of you should strive for your goals!… You both have your own personalitys but if I ran a radio, TV business and needed a host… I would hire David first! But both of you should for sure try to go as far as you can!! Good luck to the both of you!

    What aspect personally should WE work on? (constructive criticism is welcomed)
    The only thing I can think of is Andrew has a sense of humor that isnt to funny to me from time to time! Maybe its just me… but its a lil childish and non professional.

    What so far is most impressive?

    The show overall is great!… It came a long way! In a way I think both of you sound good together! Chemistry seems pretty good!

    Would you recommend this show to all Lakers fans?

    Def! All Laker Fans should Listen to this show!

    On a scale from 1-10 how professional does the Voice of the Nation sound?

    Show has to be at least a 9… Ill say 9 to at least give some room for improvement!

    If you turned us on in the car does it sound like all the other pro shows out there, that have sound guys, producers, etc?

    Yeah… it doesnt sound like a ESPN podcast… but it def. is professional and a great show!… Produced very well!!

    Other suggestions? Hope the both of you strive for your goals!!!

    Many thanks to all those who reply to this comment, and help us out making this cast the best it can possibly be!
