    The Rat Trick: The Legend of the Florida Panthers’ Rodent Tradition (ENCORE)

    The Rat Trick: The Legend of the Florida Panthers’ Rodent Tradition (ENCORE)

    The NHL All-Star Weekend hits South Florida this weekend, but there’s one notable snub. Viktor E. Rat, the hometown Florida Panthers’ alternate mascot, will not be appearing and the fans are UPSET. Because Viktor E. Rat represents more than a costume…he is the personification of one of the most unusual traditions in all of sports: throwing rats onto the ice. It’s a hair-raising tradition that dates back to the ‘95-’96 season, when a Cinderella-esque Panthers team made the Stanley Cup Final in just their third year of existence. Emily Kaplan explains how the Panthers’ rat throwing tradition started, if it may or may not have contributed to the team’s long misfortunes…and the ways in which this generation’s Panthers are trying to write their own tale.

    “A Huge, Huge Mistake.” Meyers Leonard Opens Up on Ignorance, Regret, and Forgiveness

    “A Huge, Huge Mistake.” Meyers Leonard Opens Up on Ignorance, Regret, and Forgiveness

    It has been more than two years since Meyers Leonard last set foot on an NBA court. The former Miami Heat center had his most productive season ever in 2019-20, a season that ended with him playing for the NBA Championship in the bubble. But after a shoulder injury derailed his 2020-21 season, Leonard filled his time playing video games. And it was during one online game session in March of 2021 when Leonard would utter an antisemetic slur that would ignite a firestorm of controversy. Meyers was suspended by the Heat, before being traded to – and ultimately released by – the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jeremy Schaap sits down with Meyers Leonard, who finally opens up about his “huge, huge mistake” as well as the feelings of shame and regret he has felt since. It’s an interview that explores questions of ignorance and forgiveness…and possibly, a path back to the NBA.

    Chiefs Survive, Eagles Soar: Alex Smith Untangles Championship Sunday

    Chiefs Survive, Eagles Soar: Alex Smith Untangles Championship Sunday

    It’s Chiefs vs. Eagles in Super Bowl LVII! The Chiefs escaped with a last second win over the Bengals, thanks to some late game heroics by a hobbled Patrick Mahomes. In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles soared past the San Francisco 49ers, who ran out of quarterbacks after losing third stringer Brock Purdy to an elbow injury, and fourth stringer Josh Johnson was placed into concussion protocol early in the second half. Alex Smith takes us inside the mindsets of the quarterbacks and helps us understand key plays, as we break down the biggest moments from Championship Sunday.

Even if the person we all dream of being is Joe Burrow. So, today, David Epstein, best-selling author of THE SPORTS GENE and RANGE, takes us inside the Yips — and our own brains. Where we learn actual lessons that apply to both the very best athletes in the world, and the people who watch them.

    The QB Battle that Unlocked Patrick Mahomes

    Patrick Mahomes is undoubtedly one of the most talented quarterbacks we have ever seen in the NFL…but there was a chance that his meteoric rise almost didn’t happen at all. Back in middle school, Mahomes was locked in a QB battle with a kid named Ryan Cheatham that lasted for years until his junior season. Mahomes and Cheatham grew up playing baseball and football together, and despite how fiercely competitive they were…they actually became best friends. So Ryan Hockensmith tells you everything about the position battle that made Patrick Mahomes.

I look forward to Pablo’s delivery and his handling of a variety of topics. Always has excellent guests and also like the length of each pod. Also bring a daily pod helps to keep it current and topical. Look forward to being surprised every morning
