What a ride!!

I actually host this podcast, and while I figured it would be fun to tell stories surrounding the team, there was no way we could have known what drama would surround these playoffs. Enjoying putting these pieces out there, and excited to see what comes next!

A Golden Bounce

Kudos for this timely, informative, and lively analysis of the Warriors’ end game in Oakland and new impending chapter in San Francisco. I learned loads from the first episode about the team’s history. Now I’m looking forward to an examination of its impact and significance to fans and the city of Oakland.
