Are Adam and Nathan heroes? Probably not. But they are hosts of the weekly Nevada sports podcast that Wolf Pack fans have needed for too long. Nathan was twice named the Nevada Press Association Sports Columnist of the Year while covering Nevada football, Nevada basketball, and Nevada baseball for the Sparks Tribune. He also hosted his own show on regional ESPN Radio. Adam graduated from Nevada in 2017 after seven or so years of undergrad and shares his knowledge, largely about losing bets and Mackay Stadium tailgates. Incredible guests come on weekly so that you can stay current on everything Nevada, and the Shoup brothers provide a unique insight on Wolf Pack sports, and Reno culture at large, that Northern Nevada was missing.

Thank you guys!

Shoup Squad! Thank you guys for giving Pack fans something to listen to on the way to work that actually matters to all of us here in Reno. I appreciate all that you are doing and the hard work and dedication it must take, especially with neither of you in Reno full time anymore. You two are definitely the best “not a math or geography” podcast out there and we love you here in Reno. I’ll be down in Vegas for the MW tournament, hopefully I see Nathan (and maybe Adam) there so I can buy him a beer as a way to thank both him and Adam for the amazing content they provide us twice a week.
Thanks guys and Go Pack!
