Justin is a great addition

Justin King has become one of my favorite voices in Penn State media. He combines player perspective, nfl knowledge, talent evaluation expertise, and balanced critique of team strength and weakness. Definitely an upgrade. Tom does a good job of maintaining tempo and topic. I don’t miss the previous negative podcast tone at all.

Episode 201 is 21 minutes I’ll never get back

Why would you publish this episode? It was a steaming pile of buckeyes. Justin goes to practice, doesn’t see anything or know who anyone is. He doesn’t talk to anyone of significance or get any real info. Tom asks Justin repeatedly about what he saw and Justin repeatedly answers “Like I said, I really could see much and I don’t know who anyone was.”
This episode seemed like they were contractually obligated to put out some sort of podcast because of sponsorship agreements. It was 21 minutes long and about 6 minutes were sponsor reads. It was the worst episode they’ve ever produced.

Great work guys!

I enjoy listening to this podcast since it has the perspective of a former Penn State player. They do a great job.
