    November 24, 2021
    It's a week of wins! The Trail Blazers win every game this week and Dia is thrilled to bring back the unicorns--at least for a minute. Damian Lillard wins player of the week for the Western Conference, Lebron gets suspended, Larry Nance Jr and Jusuf Nurkic are making everyone talk and Greg Brown makes a killer dunk.
    Dave and Dia talk about all of this--as well as the ongoing investigation into Neil Olshey and why he's problematic--and more on this week's episode.

    Dave & Dia: The President Steps Down, Dame Deals with Injury and Line Up Mash Ups

    November 17, 2021
    It's a new week and a new podcast, but the same record the team seems to have each week-- two wins and two losses. Dave and Did discuss the ongoing ups and downs of the team, the road games versus home games, the current adversity the team is facing, Damian Lillard's injury, the president stepping down and Neil Olshey. But in true Dave and Dia fashion, there's also some fun!

    Dave & Dia: Dame's slow start and the Blazers' Roller Coaster

    Dave & Dia: Dame's slow start and the Blazers' Roller Coaster

    November 4, 2021
    The season has just started but for Portland fans it feels like it's already been an eternity. We aren't even 10 games in and already the roller coaster ride is a doozy. Dave and Did break down the last 4 games (2 wins and 2 losses, obviously), and discuss Damian Lillard and his current "slump" (and by slump we mean still scoring over 20 points a game most nights). Philadelphia fans break into chants of "We want Lillard" and CJ McCollum says "He's still here". All of this and more on this week's episode.

Good

I like the blazers takes and he is definitely tied in to what is going on. There is a lot of lip smacking and plosives into the mic though which is annoying. 5 stars if the audio/voice gets cleaned up.

Dietary insanity

Why do I suddenly find myself eating chicken and waffles for dinner tonight….

playday rider ,

Dia… you’re too close to the mic!

Content is good, but not wanting to hurt anyone’s feelings but Dia sounds like she’s a 16 year old student wanting to grow up to be 20. She’s too loud and tries too hard to dominate conversation. I also question her NBA player knowledge. Dave sounds good and knowledgeable. And no, I’m not chauvinistic and I support women in sports broadcasting.
