Great Pod

This is one of my favorite podcasts, mainly because David and Brian seem so at ease with each other. And Brian’s recent interviews with celebs in the sports and media worlds have been fantastic. One quibble, though Brian: how could you interview Uncle Verne for an hour and NOT ask about the Laetner shot?

NBA Money Maker ,

One of my favorite pods

Great mix of industry talk and friendly banter

Danny, Danny Boy! ,

Only Ringer show better than Bill’s

Curtis and Shoemaker have such a rapport. My favorite Ringer show
