Entertaining & easy listening

Nick & Brenden are both knowledgeable and without home team favoritism. Their history together adds to the flow and enjoyment of the podcast.

Great coverage of UM/MSU

Great pod that I listen to as I commute (40min - hour 1\2) depending on traffic. The long form model works great and the variety of guests, topics, and listener generated questions are a welcome change from most of the podcasts I listen to every week. Glad to see the gang back together, keep up the good work!
