Al Galdi Podcast

I’ve been listening to Al since his early days at 980 and was so happy to hear he was starting a podcast. I’ve been listening to his podcast since day one/episode 1. Al covers all sports in the DMV and does it well.

Love Galdi

Been a recognizable voice in DC for as long as I can remember. Love his comprehensive coverage of all major area sports teams. Defends Snyder sometimes which is most disturbing however. Never defend Snyder! He doesn’t deserve a shred of doubt benefit!

Best Sports podcast

I’m a long time DC sports fan but have moved out of the area. Al Galdi has the best podcast—he keeps me up to date on the ins and outs of Washington sports. Particularly like his analysis and the multiple guests he pulls in to discuss various issues. Most importantly, Best I’ve ever heard who can carry a show solely by himself—doesn’t need a cohost.
