Sorry for the lack of podcasts this week, but I'm traveling for work. I just happened to be in Columbus though and had a chance to meet up with Andrew in person at my hotel. I looked pretty funny carting my podcasting gear through the hotel lobby, but whatever.
Andrew and I had a chance to talk about sports, music, media markets, technology and a whole host of other topics for about 40 minutes.
It was fun to have a beverage with my friend and chat in person. Hope you enjoy it as well.
I've been meeting a lot of cool new people as a result of the podcast. Recently I had a filmmaker named Peter Barr reach out to me. He makes documentaries and has been a lifelong Cleveland sports fan who is currently stuck in the world of New England sports.
He's also an avid soccer fan, so we talked about USMNT and World Cup 2014 in addition to talking about the Tribe and the Browns draft.
I got Ben Cox to come on the podcast to discuss the 2014 Cleveland Cavaliers. He dubbed it the season of huh.
From the Cavaliers drafting Anthony Bennett, to hiring Mike Brown, to firing Chris Grant to Matthew Dellevedova being the Cavs' best rookie this year.
It was one for the ages.
The fake Jim Kanicki or the real Mike Burgermeister joined me to talk through some Browns topics.
We talked about the 2014 NFL draft, specifically who the Browns should take at #4. Mike Evans vs. Sammy Watkins and talking about three studs on the offensive line.
Finally, we talked a bit about NFL draft cliches.
I really enjoyed my first podcast with @sportsyelling, so I asked her to come back and she said yes.
We talked about Lonnie Chisenhall and his paternity leave, the Cleveland Indians early results, the Browns and if they should do Hard Knocks, the Cavaliers and whether you'd rather have a hockey team and lots lots more.
When will Cleveland sports be about sports again? Well, for right now, there's a lot of interest in issues off the field. I had a chance to catch up with Peter Pattakos of Cleveland Frowns on both the Cleveland Sin tax issue as well as the Chief Wahoo situation.
Spoiler alert! Brian and Craig both enjoyed Captain America 2. We discuss that movie in depth and how Marvel continues to impress with their massive film undertaking.
We also spoke about the viral photo that came out of the first day of Brian's filming of the Chief Wahoo documentary he is making.
