HoS Pod: Mike Pesca

Host of The Gist IDs which stories I didn't cover and we discuss, of course, The Media

We’ve ombuds’d with Spike. Can we ombuds’d with Mike? We tried to stay on topic with Mike Pesca, public radio/sports podcasting legend, but we ended up hitting so many subjects outside this here website. Subjects include, but aren’t limited to:

  • I just came back from Florida. What’s the deal?

  • There once was a banana that everyone ate and it was called The Big Mike. Now it’s extinct.

  • I went on Pesca’s podcast to discuss Giannis Antetokounmpo’s “there’s no failure in sports” moment. We analyze why his listeners hated our take.

  • Is it helpful to exaggerate certain societal threats?

  • Mike’s NBA vs. Senate salary comp became a random controversy

  • I’m trying to outsmart Elon Musk. Good luck to me.

  • Is, “Go Woke, Go Broke?” true or false?

  • Mike wonders why I didn’t cover certain stories, like Jon Gruden’s Raiders ouster

  • The conversation about women’s sports isn’t very nuanced

  • Mike asks for my most progressive sports media opinion
