Ready to hear MORE from John Calipari? You’re in luck, because Calipari just announced on Twitter that he’s starting his own podcast.
“I’m always looking for what’s next and how we can be first. It happened with Twitter, Facebook and having a world-class website. I was approached to do a podcast. My answer was, ‘What’s that?'”
Seriously, Cal? Even you should know what podcasts are now.
“When I was told it was another chance to separate our program, be about more than basketball and have conversations with good friends, I said yes. It will only be 30 minutes per week from my house. Ellen had to approve because it was her time. First one coming up this week.”
I’m sure Calipari will use this as an opportunity to talk basketball with his buddies Larry Brown, Bruiser Flint, etc., but I really wish he would go off the rails with it a bit. I mean, who wouldn’t want to listen to Calipari talk about “Alaskan Bush People” or cuts of meat for 30 minutes? Hopefully Calipari will discover the secret to podcasting success is talking less about the actual subject you’re covering and more about everything else.
Regardless, we’ll all be tuning in, especially since KSR is hearing two of Calipari’s first guests are Drake and Lebron James. Because even kids listen to podcasts these days. (UPDATE: Hearing those two aren’t really Cal’s first guests, but that he has something pretty major lined up.)
