A Sports Talks Show hosted by Sal Castaneda and Matt Steinmetz.
No. 127: 49ers, warriors and what's next for both franchises.
What a disappointing season it's been for the San Francisco 49ers. From a play or two from winning the Super Bowl to a regular-old football team with a unbecoming 5-8 record. Sal and Steiny talk about the 49ers' season, and all that's gone wrong. But how do things look in the future. Sal and Steiny talk about that, also.
The Warriors are hopeful to return to the top of the Western Conference this year. Steph Curry is back, and despite the injury to Klay Thompson, excitement is abounding for the Warriors. It's going to be tons of fun finding out where the Warriors fit these days.
And did we tell you about Sal's record collection? Well, we do in this podcast, and we're sure you'll agree, it's impressive.
No. 126: Klay is out for the season, now what? Will we ever see the same Warriors as from the dynasty era? Is James Wiseman going to be the league's next great big man? Will the 49ers eventually get better?
The fellas are back just in time to weigh in on how Klay Thompson's injury sidelines an elite player in his prime. Will he ever be the same? What do fans expect of this team in the 2020-2021 season? Will James Wiseman be the best player on the Warriors in a few years? Will Jimmy G and the 49ers finally get it right next year? Steinmetz and Castaneda also riff on a few extraneous subjects and discuss the future of live sporting events in 2021.
No.125: 49ers back to winning, Sean McVay was a KTVU intern and more
Sal and Steiny are back at it, and so, too, are the 49ers, who beat the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The 49ers had lost consecutive games, and there was much concern among the fans.
In fact, one of the first topics Sal and Steiny address is how our television station and radio station determine how to talk about the team. What are the important aspects of the game to hit? How much time do you devote to certain subjects? How much of the shows are ad-libbed vs. scripted.
Lastly, Sal and Steiny talk about just how much you should tell your boss. Is it better to keep your boss overly informed of what's going on in your life? Sometimes you have to.
No. 124: The bits get back into during the pandemic. 49ers struggling, Joe Morgan tribute.
Sal and Steiny are getting back into the swing of things after a little bit of a hiatus. And, man, have things changed. In this episode, Castaneda and Steinmetz dissect how their businesses - television and radio -- have been impacted by the Corona Virus. Things have changed in a big way and if the media biz interests you, this episode is a no-brainer.
The boys also talk about the San Francisco 49ers, who are struggling just one year after playing in the Super Bowl. The 49ers have always been the sports king of the Bay Area, and many a fan are wondering what in the heck is happening with their team.
It's also time to honor an Oakland and Bay Area icon in Joe Morgan, who passed away at the age of 77. Morgan, one of the greatest baseball players of all time, was an inspiring man who left a trail of good deeds and positivity in his wake. We hope you listen.
No. 123: 49ers in the Super Bowl, Kobe Bryant's legacy, working as a journalist at big events, getting things right and not speculating as a journalist.
In their latest podcast, Castaneda and Steinmetz talk about the Super Bowl and which media members draw the short straw and have to cover it. This year's Super Bowl is in Miami and both fossils say they'd rather be in the Bay Area than in South Florida.
Sal and Steiny also talk about the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, and how the media did its job in the aftermath. Who said what? Which reporter said that? What was real and what wasn't? There are still so many questions about how all of this (mis)information got out.
Hug your loved ones, and enjoy the podcast.
No. 122: 49ers winning and what it means for the legacy of the team, and the stadium.
How did the San Francisco 49ers go from 4-12 last season to 13-3 this season with an appearance in the NFC Championship game? Will the 49ers winning finally bring the Candlestick atmosphere to Santa Clara? The fellas also talk about how these deep playoff appearances and the several recent sports teams championships affect their everyday work lives.
Sal is the perfect good natured foil for the ever Prickly Steinmetz. Great comedic tension, just don’t let em get on the subject of refereeing, golf or Jed York.
I listen every time a new show comes out. Love the conversation. Love the knowledge. Love it when Sal talks traffic. So much goodness. Keep it up guys!
