Sports? with Katie Nolan is a weekly show about sports and all the things tangentially related to sports. Its friends would describe it as "curious," "fun," and "a podcast." Weekly guests will include sports fans from all sorts of industries: comedy, film, television, science?
Katie and The Union dodge a question about zoom trivia before diving into a vast sea of sports news. Chris Paul in the Protocol (41:55), Lebron’s tweets about NBA injuries (59:40), Reggie Miller’s terrible take (1:07:35), MLB goop (1:24:20), Ronaldo’s water supremacy (1:55:00), a late WCWS update (2:08:00), a very messy slip n slide (2:11:12), and more. Lastly: a question about hiding things from your family (2:21:05).
Katie chats with Israel Gutierrez about who he is and how that impacts his work. Topics include what it’s like to come out publicly; the problem with how we cover women’s sports; the value of authenticity; and, reluctantly, skin care.
Be more embarrassed

Katie and The Union talk break-up songs they listened to growing up. Travis recaps his date (23:20), Christina had food amnesia (35:23) and Myrtle got to sleep with Katie and Dan last night (41:38).

What kind of wizard are you (1:49:30)?
Shoutout To Nobody
It’s Thursday so you know what that means... Katie and the Union gather to FMK social media, discuss dating app experiences, debate changing your last name, and just generally meander through topics that are vaguely related to sports sometimes. We’re not reinventing the wheel here. It’s a free swim.
Katie and The Union come up with hobbies for the summer. Friendly banter about beer (11:35), milk (15:06), and sleeping (18:10),. Katie takes a page out of Travis’ book and has rant about commercials (28:46). Julio kind of wants out of Atlanta (39:13). Frustrated Knicks fans are fun to watch (50:32). What kind of candles do you like (1:09:40)? Bedlam at the PGA Championship (1:29:18). Don’t injure your gearbox (1:48:32). Lastly, when’s the last time you cried from joy (2:01:50)?
Never thought I’d listen to a 2 hr podcast but you guys do a great job keeping me interested. Great topics, stories and comments. Sports? You bet!
On your fox show you brought in a lot of folks you weren't affiliated with sports. Why can't you do that now? With espns connections to abc, Disney, marvel, star wars etc. Please. Your only podcast I've listed to in the last 3 weeks was with Izzy. This is after listening or watching every pod or show you've had for year's. You can handle it, you interact with mina and bomina weekly and they're two of the best. You talking to the union is a waste of your talent
There’s very few, if any, podcasts that I’d listen to 2 hours of “sports” talk, and then another half hour about a show that I’ve never watched, but this is the one!
