Representing the DMV (and the shore)
Podcasts are not easy to do well. This podcast already appears to have chemistry, good information, and “hot takes”. They had a different perspective on the “In the Water” doc that surprised me.
The stories shared so far from guests in the DMV are interesting because I did not know about all the ball players that have come out of that area. The stories are engaging because they come from insiders. I thought the story from Walt Williams was going to be how he got one off on Jordan but it was the complete opposite. Jordan stole it, dunked, and trash talked Walt.
I know one of the brothas and he is a good dude. I listen to a lot of podcasts and this has the potential to rival some of the existing sports podcasts. Looking forward to seeing the podcast grow.
