I wanted to create a podcast that was for me and people like me; people that love sports, design, technology and creativity but crave a higher level of conversation about it. Conversations that are more objective about the branding, design, copywriting, advertising, technology and creativity of sports rather than the subjective level a fan might bring to the conversation.
