    EP 17 - Sports Radio Without Sports and Anxiety Chats with Bart Winkler

    EP 17 - Sports Radio Without Sports and Anxiety Chats with Bart Winkler

    The longest sports drought in history - how are SPORTS TALK radio stations surviving?  What happens when one of Milwaukee's most popular sports talk show hosts is faced with a global pandemic, no sports, and a hefty case of anxiety?  Bart called me wanting to talk about it all...and it essentially turned into a therapy session.  Sports fans should listen to this.  Mental  health advocates should listen to this. MEN should listen to this.  Also, squirrels can listen to this, but probably won't.  I think that's nuts.

Great Podcast!

Love this podcast! Riggs is such an awesome radio personality and his podcast highlights his great listening skills. He asks great question and makes us feel like we’re there. Loved the Christmas episode and can’t wait to hear more.

Sweet Jesus!

Riggs shares a lot of insight to everyday life that a lot of us take for granted. He has a lot of great laughing moments, but also talks about serious matters which helps give a lot of perspective. Unique and original. Definitely subscribed!

Love it!! God knows I love Ally and Gibbons, but Riggs’ perspective, comments and jokes always get me-so excited he’s got a podcast now, and I can listen to some Riggs not just in the morning :)
