This is my go-to source for everything Pistons! Love the show, hosts, and whole vibe
Great content, audio quality needs attention
Love the content guys, I listen to every episode. Great analysis and lots of helpful explanations.
One thing that could improve the podcast a lot is Omari’s mic quality. Not sure what’s going on there but it’s noticeably worse sounding than it should be for such a high quality pod. Hoping you can upgrade the vocal chain soon.
Love all the content. Go Pistons! And also the Red Wings.
