JSC Radio Ep. 68: Balling for Dollars


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — The 68th Episode of the People’s Podcast is here and, it’s entering March like a Lion going all Hoops — College & Pro.

First, we hit on the FBI’s investigation of numerous college hoops programs — including North Carolina, Louisville, Duke, USC…and Michigan State. Yep, the Spartans got caught in the net. But, instead of going after the players or the programs, this show goes after the NCAA whose antiquated and hypocritical culture is largely to blame for this foolishness. We go after why the players need to be paid — in actual money, not in “clothes” or “education” or gum — and how that can start to fix this mess.

Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban is suddenly the small fish in this shark tank.

Then, we hit the Dallas Mavericks situation where yet another poisonous case of office culture had been exposed as the NBA gets dinged by the #MeToo movement. A toxic, misogynistic office culture has made Dallas the NBA’s poster child for harassment and they become the litmus test for how the league will handle cases of this. The league has said it will create a confidential hotline for anyone who has been harassed. The Mavericks hired Cynthia Marshall, a former AT&T executive who led some of their diversity initiatives. While that seems like they’ve learned their lesson, the red flags still exist.

Plus, the Big Ten Tournament is in New York City. Why, tho?

JSC Radio Ep. 65: Flipping The Birds


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — This was a hell of a week to be in Philadelphia.

What up doe, People! This has been a hell of a cool week here in Philly to be honest. This week’s episode — another landmark at No. 65 — hits on the aftermath of the orgasm of happiness that was the Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl.

As I’ve said multiple times the last few weeks, Philadelphia is a different kind of place when it comes to their sports teams — particularly the Eagles. The Eagles are to Philly what the Red Sox are in Boston, the Cubs are in Chicago, the Saints are in New Orleans, and…yes…the Lions are in Detroit.

This No. 9 found a way to take command and win big games for the Eagles.

The Eagles last won an NFL Championship in 1960, predating the Super Bowl by seven calendar years. They wouldn’t reach their first Super Bowl until after the 1980 season, where they got laid out by the Raiders. It would be almost 25 years before they got back to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Patriots in Jacksonville. The Lombardi Trophy, much like it is in Detroit, was an obsession in Philly. It was the holy grail. It was the Precious. Well, last Sunday, the Eagles obtained the Precious. And they did it in a way that few would’ve ever figured, especially after Carson Wentz’s knee went kaboom on Dec. 10 in Los Angeles, with lightly regarded journeyman Nick Foles out there throwing flames like he grabbed a Fire Flower and a pissed off defense. This week’s show talks about the Eagles influence on the city, the wild celebrations/riots that soon followed, the epic parade featuring one of the greatest promos every by Jason Kelce, and why these Eagles have all the things the Lions wish they had.

Plus, the NBA trade deadline basically turned into the Great Cleveland Massacre. 

Here’s Episode 65. Let’s Have Some Fun, y’all.

JSC Radio Ep. 48: #RetroReview – SummerSlam 1997


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s good people! After last week’s rather heavy episode, it was time to shake things up and change the vibe. As y’all know, this show doesn’t have a set format, per se. But this is definitely a big Pro Wrestling (not “Sports Entertainment”) Spot here at House JSC. And I decided a few weeks ago to try something different.

Episode 48 is the first official #RetroReview, which will be a quarterly show that reviews one of the classic “Big 4” WWF/WWE Pay-Per-Views: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series. After Episode 28 looked at Ric Flair’s incredible win in the 1992 Royal Rumble and Episode 36 looked at my all-time favorite WrestleMania matches, it was time to go all in and review a full PPV, and no better place to start than going back 20 years to SummerSlam 1997, when things were definitely changing in the World Wrestling Federation and in the business in general.

JSC Radio Ep. 46: Hard Headed


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s up everybody. The push to Episode 50 continues after last week’s well-received episode. This week, the People’s Podcast talks about a new study on CTE that yielded astounding results and further showed that football has a ticking time bomb in its midst.

Plus: Kyrie Irving is sick of being in LeBron’s shadow, and Lucky Whitehead got fired on his day off.
