It's been since LeBron joined the Cavaliers since I talked to Andrew. A lot has happened since. Here's some of what we spoke about...

I was happy to have Dave Sterling (@dimoko) back on the podcast. We started out accidentally discussing public urination and ended with the breaking news that Josh Gordon's year-long suspension has been upheld by the NFL.
We also talked about Kevin Love and his "decision" to come to the Cleveland Cavaliers. We talked about LeBron James as a recruiter and the fallacy that some sports fans have at times when a great player is out that the team is "better off" without him.
We ended with the #FreeJoshGordon chat. How depressing.
I had Jeff Rosenberg from OJ the Musical on once before to promote his movie. I've been trying to get the Cleveland native back since it's been released on iTunes and other VOD places. To my benefit this time he brought the movie's star, Jordan Kenneth Kamp.
We talked about the movie, what it was like to take it to festivals, and what it was like to be a comedy at the festivals.
We talked a lot about the Cleveland Cavaliers and how crazy an off-season it has been. Jordan tells us about how he attended the draft, bought an Andrew Wiggins jersey and either introduces to or reminds me of the nickname Hot-Wad Williams.
The fake Jim Kanicki who is also the real Mike Burgermeister came on the podcast to talk about the Browns today.
We talked about the following...
Matt Dery from 105.1 FM in Detroit jumped on the podcast to discuss lots of Cleveland sports topics.
We had planned on talking about LeBron James and Kevin Love, but then he considered going down to Ferguson to try and help out with his legal skills.
So, we did end up talking about LeBron James and Kevin Love, but we spent a lot of time talking about what's happening in Ferguson as well.
I got a chance to talk to TD about all three Cleveland teams. That's always a blast for me. Today we spent a good amount of time talking about the Tribe and the season they've put together.
We also talked about LeBron coming home and what that means for a sports family like TD's that is baseball, and football first.
Lastly we talked about Johnny Manziel, the Browns and what it must be like for Brian Hoyer to try and win the starting job. We talked about how even as we expected hype around Manziel that it's surprising just how crazy things are around him.
Oh, and we led off talking about Cedar Point, which rules.
Denny texted me to podcast last minute and despite my beverages, we did it. Great time talking about a whole host of topics including...
The fine people at the Anything to Add Monty podcast were kind enough to have me on to discuss Draft Day a few months ago. I'm a disorganized fool and never reciprocated, but I was more than happy to have Dave Sterling on. When I did that podcast there was really good chemistry as we went from liking Draft Day to nearly despising it as we talked about it.
Here's what else we talked about...
I talked to Zac Jackson at Browns training camp today about coming on the podcast and eight hours later he was on it. I'm a fan of Zac's work and was glad he was willing to come on.
We discussed the following...
I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of things, but it was a great conversation and Zac was on for over 30 minutes.
