Today’s podcast is up and features some quality moments, including an awkward encounter with a fellow media member, a surprise call from Ramel “Smooth” Bradley, and of course, Matt’s interview with Joker Phillips, which starts at the interview starts at the 22:19 mark. (The feed cut out for a bit right after it starts, so excuse the technical difficulties. We are who we are.)
Without spoiling it, I’ll just say I found the interview incredibly interesting. Joker was as passionate and animated as I have ever heard him, and at times, seemed downright angry about the negativity surrounding the team. He didn’t back down from Matt’s questions, at one point calling out our fearless leader for not believing in the program, and challenged him to double his bet with Clay Travis on how the team would fare this season. I’ll be honest with you, you’re going to enjoy it.
