Cameron J Clark ,

Great analysis, could be better overall

These guys do a great job breaking down games, making predications, and addressing concerns with the team. They can be a bit monotone sometimes, which is one of the few improvements I’d love to see. If show shifted away from NPR and adopted a little more personality like a Barstool show might, it would excel. GS students/fans/alumni can all identify with a wild element that the school and team have. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little fire in this show too. Either way, I’ll be listening weekly.

GATA!

Thanks so much for doing this podcast! Awesome info for those of us who don’t live anywhere nearby!

GATA is not pronounced “Gotta”, guys. Jeez

It should sound like “Gat(like cat)-ah”. Fix that and you’ll have something here.
