Podcast: A to Z - Zoom Party!

June 17th, 2020 · Comments

Part Z and our Final Episode of the "A to Z" Anthology Series is our culminating "Zoom Party!" featuring our co-host Kevin on the Cape and a bunch of other good friends who were on previous A to Z shows:  John in Orlando, Ron in NJ, Mike in North NJ, Andrew and Karen in Denver, and representing Gerry from Piscataway's appearances is his baseball coverage partner Ari in Philadelphia.   First, the gang looks in suspended disbelief at Dave's hair on the Zoom feed, then we segue to favorite TV show themes, things we discovered during the shutdown, movies we last saw in the theater, favorite "pandemic drinks," and many other topics - including pancakes.  We wrap up and reflect on our favorite moments of the anthology, then offer other reflections on an unusual but notable time in human history.

Podcast: A to Z - John and Mike - The Golf Panel

April 1st, 2020 · Comments

Part J of our "A to Z" Anthology brings back John and Mike, our Golf Panel, to look at how Law School and work are going for them via the "work at home" route.   We share some quick thoughts on Coronavirus, then recap the short PGA Tour so far and look ahead to what possible events can be salvaged after the Coronavirus pandemic runs its course.  Later we recap highlights from Peter Kostis' interview on the "No Laying Up" podcast and segue to a conversation of how leagues and teams are sugar coating coverage of their respective properties.  Lastly, Dave tries his own random question for John and Mike, with a focus on the movies.

Podcast: A to Z - It’s Da Bread

March 31st, 2020 · Comments

Part I (the letter "I", not 1) of our "A to Z" Anthology series brings us an old friend, "It's Da Bread," otherwise known as John in Brooklyn.  It has been quite a long time since we last had him on the show, so we catch up with Bread and see how his family is doing during Coronavirus.   Bread shares the scene he has at the family home upstate, the situation back in Brooklyn, his Law School in progress, and other details.  Bread and Dave lament the lack of Pro Sports in the USA, comment on how great the Lakers chances could have been or could be to win the title, plus we revisit some of the projections for when Pro Leagues start back up.  Speaking of old friends, we bring back an old podcast tradition in the middle of our show, and Kevin on the Cape sends two more Random Q's for Bread.
