Fantastic Finebaum Episode

Absolutely loved the Finebaum episode. Great content and awesome questions asked along the way!

Big Fan Stan ,

Angelo Cataldi

Great interview with Angelo Cataldi. I had (unfortunately) never heard of him, because I’m not from Philly & not a Philly sports fan, but his insights were great. Interviews like this are why I listen to sports media podcasts.
