As we’ve been teasing on podcast episodes over the last few weeks, Land-Grant Holy Land is bringing an exciting slate of podcasts to listeners for the 2019 football season. The lineup will feature all of our regular podcasting content and recognizable voices, but we will also have new shows and new talent joining the fun as well.
Throughout the season, we will have eight weekly shows, all of which will have a different focus and perspective to provide all OSU fans with the most well-rounded insight into their teams and school. No other Ohio State Buckeyes podcast will have the breadth and variety of content that Land-Grant Holy Land will offer this fall.
In addition to our weekly shows, the LGHL podcast feed will also have a one-of-a-kind Ohio State football history podcast, which will re-air its first season in the fall, before launching an expanded second season in the spring. Finally, we will bring you unedited audio from press conferences and interviews as often as possible, usually a time or two every week.
Below, check out the full list of offerings, complete with sample episodes where possible. We will be sticking to this publishing schedule as closely as possible, however, since Ohio State does play that weird Friday night game against the Northwestern Wildcats, at least one week will feature a wonky schedule.
State Secrets Recruiting Podcast
Hosts: Matt Tamanini and Mick Walker
Release: Monday 5:00 a.m. ET
On the State Secrets recruiting episodes of the Land-Grant Holy Land podcast, one of our recruiting experts, Mick Walker, tries to educate our resident “old,” Matt Tamanini, about recruiting.
Also, Mick doesn’t like the “State Secrets” name to the show, so if you have a better recruiting-related show name idea, let us know in the comments below.

Outside the ‘Shoe
Hosts: Geoff Hammersley and Meredith Hein
Release: Friday 5:00 p.m. ET

Hosts: Matt Tamanini with Special Guest Lori Schmidt
Release: Saturday 5:00 a.m. ET
Every Saturday (and one random Friday), Matt will bring you all of the essential information that you need to know for game day; from kick off time and what channel the game’s on to that day’s weather and a scouting report for the specific opponent, and much more.
Columbus sports reporting legend Lori Schmidt from 610 WTVN Radio will join Matt every week with a handful of unique insights that only the Mad Hatter can provide.
Hangout in the Holy Land: Game Recap
