    Game of Zones Co-Creator, Adam Malamut - Going ISO

    Game of Zones Co-Creator, Adam Malamut - Going ISO

    Adam Stanco & Noah Coslov go ISO with Adam Malamut, the co-creator of the enormously successful Bleacher Report series Game of Zones. Malamut reveals everything you always wanted to know about the show, including why it ended, which owner they angered, and why meeting Sam Hinkie was awesome (and awkward). He shares hilarious childhood memories of getting suspended for drawing a sexually explicit cartoon about his teacher and explains how Philly’s sports talk radio station, 610 WIP, influenced his impressions. Malamut also details his career in animation and how Game of Zones actually got started. Plus, he gives us a hint at what’s next for him and his brother (Game of Zones co-creator) Craig.

    Going ISO - Josiah Johnson

    Going ISO - Josiah Johnson

    Adam Stanco & Noah Coslov go ISO with acclaimed TV creator and the king of NBA Twitter, Josiah Johnson. They discuss how Josiah was a Bruins ball boy with the 1995 NCAA title team and how his father (UCLA legend Marques Johnson) starred in White Men Can’t Jump. Josiah also shares hilarious stories about his playing career at UCLA, including LeBron stealing his locker, T.J. Cummings dating a member of Destiny’s Child, and why summer pickup games with Magic Johnson were infuriating. He talks about what went into the six-year process of creating Legends of Chamberlain Heights and where he was when the show finally aired on Comedy Central. He explains how he’s become such a successful Twitter personality and why his style is impossible to duplicate. Plus, he reveals what its been like to work with Ava DuVernay on a new Colin Kaepernick project for Netflix.
    If you’re not following Josiah already, you can find him on Twitter @KingJosiah54.
