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. 54: Lone Star State of Mind


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What Up Doe, people! The People’s Podcast rolls on and this week is all about the crowning of a new champion, the Houston Astros.

Baseball is a clear theme on this show, and while Game 7 of the World Series was a relative dud compared to the first six games (and all seven of last year’s), this year’s Fall Classic showed the world once again why Baseball will always be king.

Plus, the Lions are still the Lions and Detroit is still Detroit (thanks Cardi B).

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s up everybody. This week, the People’s Podcast remembers Prodigy, one half of the iconic hip-hop tag team Mobb Deep. I’ll talk about my favorite tracks from Mobb Deep, P’s influence on the game, and the fact that he joins a list of rappers gone far too soon.

JSC Radio – Episode 17: Lara Witt (and an update on where I’ve been)


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s Up y’all! So it’s been five months since I updated this blog and JSC Radio has kinda become more of an organized THING. When I first started doing this podcast back in March, my goal was for it to evolve into an extension of this blog and eventually become the “People’s Podcast.” It doesn’t have a set genre by design and that allows me to take on different issues every week. In the Last few months, the show has expanded to both iTunes and Stitcher Radio (Hey, Hey!). I’ve talked about everything from WrestleMania to A Tribe Called Quest to the Detroit Lions to Mass Shootings and the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton SterlingFrom Brexit to the NBA to the Olympics, I’ve been all over the place, but there’s also been a common theme: These podcasts are about giving a different voice to different subjects. I’ve also been lucky enough to have two great guests on the show. The first was Jenee Darden, the daughter of Christopher Darden — who is best known as being one of the prosecutors in the O.J. Simpson Trial — following ESPN’s incredible documentary on Simpson. The second came earlier this week when I talked to Lara Witt, a journalist, blogger, Feminist activist, and sexual assault survivor who grew up in Switzerland but moved to Philadelphia in 2010. The reason I brought her on was to bluntly (very bluntly) address the NFL’s — and football as a whole — treatment of women and how their reaction to violence against women seems to to pale in comparison to things such as refusing to stand for the National Anthem.
