Perfect pairing

This podcast has married my love of Top Chef and basketball and is a perfect companion to the show. Great guests and insights from a different perspective which is something I never knew I needed until now. Honestly I use Overcast to listen to podcasts but I came on here in the hope that this podcast continues for seasons to come. I can't wait for the next draft!
