We love Richie!!!!

Richie came up on my FYP and his tik tok and podcast are wonderful (he also happened to live on my freshman floor and be my bff so maybe I’m biased)

Like hanging out on the couch

I love the casual flow of this podcast. These guys talk real sports, leaving behind all the fake headlines and focusing on what’s actually important. They make players into real people and you can tell they’re just a couple of down to earth guys talking sports as if they were hanging on the couch

Well done

Rich and Tim have put together a good show. The camaraderie is excellent. I’d recommend listening if your a fan of any sports league.
