Method again in January 2016, I launched a podcast.
On the time, I used to be nonetheless technically employed by ESPN however I didn’t have an precise job after Grantland was shut down in October 2015.

So, when my buddy Derek provided me a radio present at an area station the place I stay in Minneapolis, I prompt as an alternative that we begin a podcast. Like that, Celebration Rock was born.
