Giddy Up!

In this, the penultimate episode of the Bandwagon 'cast before summer break, the gang ruminates on marathons, the Kentucky Derby, and invites U of I softball standout Nicole Evans to the studio for a chat. (Spoiler alert: She accepted the invitation & you get to hear the results)

Sports to the Sportsth Power

If you’ve ever wanted an episode of Bandwagon where John, Brian, and Lisa interview someone about their job operating a camera during the Final Four, tell a story about an actual Jim Nantz selfie, grump at Geno Auriemma, and ponder the proliferation of the OSP (Overbearing Sports Parent)… well, this is that episode.

On a (Coaching) Carousel

The Bandwagon crew goes full nerd for NCAA basketball, with much discussion regarding the coaching merry-go-round, PLUS bracket talk with ESPN analyst (and U of I alum) John Gasaway. Some professional soccer is thrown in for balance.

Who You Calling Granny?

The crew devotes some serious minutes to the virtues (or lack thereof) of baseball's intentional walk, and goes long on granny style. Yes, we know we're mixing our sports metaphors.

Aussie Blues

An interview with a journalist from the Daily Illini about an epic longform piece he wrote regarding concussions in female athletes; #Fedal and more at the Australian Open; why the Williams sisters are such an intriguing sports rivalry (hint: sisters); defining "over". BANDWAGON AT FULL STRENGTH, Y'ALL.

Just Say Maybe

The Bandwagon team is once again Better Tate Than Never! Discussed: The effects of the election on pro sports, and the use of marijuana (as opposed to opioids) as a painkiller by athletes. Um, no relation. There's a rivalry and some social media discussion, too.
