No putts given?


Recommended Posts

I was doing 6 hours of driving today, so I thought I'd download a few podcasts to listen to. Noticed that there hasn't been a NPG since the "free fitting" episode. I know I found that one hard to listen too, but was it so poorly received that the podcast ended?

Take this as a member, not a mod as I have zero insight into the workings of and the goings on with NPG. However I did notice that Miranda has been taken off the staff list on the main site. So I would imagine that has something to do with it as she hosted the show/podcast. In addition I think the Christmas and Holiday break would have had something to do with it. I would imagine we will see more or another new episode soon after all the 2022 releases have come out recapping a lot of it and going into other topics.

I believe last year they took a long break during the holidays? Not sure if that was Covid related or what but I don’t believe a new one was really up until products started to launch so right around now?

I have a little inside knowledge but don’t know any details.   As was mentioned it appears Miranda isn’t on staff anymore nor is Matt (the audio/video guy).  They have been interviewing video people to replace Matt; there was a job posting by MGS a month or so ago.

Thank you! This is so helpful. I've been seriously wondering were it went and asked the question a few times on the live donor giveaway.

I've have had to rework my podcast schedule for the work week, and can't wait for it to come back🤞

Shame, she brought a great dynamic to NPG.  Hopefully she has moved on to bigger and better things, and will be replaced by someone equally as good.

I hope she is well and wish her success in whatever the future holds.

I agree with Pandaman.  She toned down the testosterone and golf industry insider elements a bit and got everyone to contribute.

The “free fittings” show of No Putts Given was the worst episode by far in my opinion and revealed a few things about MyGolfSpy that I found troubling.  

Sorry to hear that Miranda is no longer involved.  Wish her the best in her future endeavors.

I really hope the format doesn't change too much, this was one of my favorite podcasts and I only recently discovered it! I agree with the others that Miranda added a great dynamic and I think having a female helped the podcast out tremendously.

My guess is she found a new full time gig.  She was an internal reporter for the Patriots prior to appearing on NPG and it always seemed to me that her joining NPG was a coincidence of opportunity where Adam didn't want to appear on NPG anymore and "Harry's wife" needed a job and had the perfect skill set to host a podcast.  She did a great job and I liked that she brought a loose structure to the show and made sure everyone was engaged.  She probably also did all of the planning and stuff that goes into it each week which is why they can't just keep doing them without her.  The other guys all have a full plate....

I am missing these podcasts, they really added an awesome layer to the great information they put out on the website. Most wanted driver testing coming out will hopefully push them to get these going again.

She was. Although she didn’t appear to be a golf nerd and a few of her questions didn’t add a lot, many/most of her questions did broaden the discussions with good effect. Hope she’s on to bigger and better things - I gather she'd like to land in broadcasting/media. It appears MGS was a side hustle all along (nothing wrong with that BTW).
