Excellent Podcast

Nothing compares to this podcast. Mike and Joe break down high school hoops inside and out.

Great Podcast

Just an awesome weekly podcast from two guys that cover Chicago area high school basketball. Nothing like it. It is deeply missed during the summer and fall.

Super Knowledgable

Mike and Joe are the two most knowledgable and plugged in media guys for HS basketball in the Chicago-area. They've got a great back and fourth that makes the pod fun to listen to.

My only complaint: The files sizes for episodes are way too big! Come on guys, lower that bit rate.
