Crack open a cold one and enjoy this pod
I consume many Notre Dame football pods and this is easily one of my favorite. Frank and Greg bring a different view on ND football. I enjoy their different styles and it fits very well. Enjoyable pod that is fun and informative. From X’ and O’s to beer and food if you are an Irish fan you will not be disappointed. My only complaint is I’m always left wanting more shows. Thank you both for a great one.
Brian VanGoiter’s favorite pod!
Perfection from the Kyle Hamilton intro (that now know by heart) all the way to the nearly forgotten listener reviews at the end.
Love the podcast!
Football season is a Go!
Love the pod
