Really enjoy Jason and Peggy’s insight into Chicago sports.
1st time listener, long time fan!
I've followed Peggy's career for 47 years, mostly because my mom made me, but I have always loved her work in sports. Sorry it took me awhile to jump on board of this cool podcast.. I blame COVID. I enjoyed hearing both the boomer and millennial perspective on current topics. I'm glad to see her love for journalism has passed on to the next generation.
I’ve followed Peggy for years, even since moving away from Chicago and I’ve been aware of this podcast for quite some time. But it was that Goofy idiot Kevin Matthews that finally got me to tune in to my first SAHS podcast- and the first of many more to come. Loved it!
