It’s a little bit of a different episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast this week. Nick Coffey is still away, and Aaron welcomes two guests to the show. First, Aaron is joined by KSR’s T.J. Walker to talk all things college hoops. Then, Aaron’s radio partner on Fox Sports Radio Arnie Spanier hops on to tell old-school radio stories. Starting with T.J., he and Aaron discuss:
The Wendell Carter Drama at Duke: How did Duke get themselves in this mess, and how likely is it that Mike Krzyzewski wasn’t honest with the Carter’s during the recruiting process? Also, Aaron explains why John Calipari never seems to find himself in these messes. Plus, how much will Duke miss Jeff Capel now that he’s gone?
The Charles Bassey Drama at Western Kentucky: The latest on Charles Bassey at Western Kentucky, after his own high school principal questioned whether Bassey ever even received a diploma or not. T.J. explains the details of what went on behind the scenes at Aspire Academy, and the guys agree that the real victim here is actually Bassey himself.
Finally, what’s the buzz at Kentucky with the addition of Reid Travis: Finally Aaron asks T.J. his thoughts on Kentucky now that Reid Travis is on campus. How good can this team be? And is it fair for Aaron to state that the Wildcats are the title favorites entering 2018-2019?
Next up, it’s story time, as Aaron is joined by Arnie Spanier. Arnie hosts Fox Sports Radio with Aaron every Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. ET, and they discuss the following:
Arnie’s beginnings in radio: Arnie explains how a trip to watch his brother play high school basketball started his career. Also, how he got offered his first job in Vegas, and where he has worked since.
Some of his craziest stories from his time on air: How Bryan Colangelo (yes, that Bryan Colangelo) convinced him to go bungee jumping and why the Lakers were furious with him for joking about a Kobe Bryant injury. Also, how he met his wife doing a segment for his show.
