Inaugural Episode of the Providence Friarcast

The podcast has a new name! Shout out to Mike Gormley who suggested the name on Twitter last week. The inaugural Providence Friarcast features our full cadre of myself, Brendan McGair of the Pawtucket Times and Chris Grenham of BigEastCoastBias.com. Despite some technical issues on our first episode together we had a nice chat about the 2K Classic and Providence’s next game against Belmont. I also took a quick look ahead at the Friars game against Boston College on Saturday. Chris also interviewed BarstoolReags, the college basketball writer at barstoolsports.com, over the weekend. Also, check out Reags’ podcast Fundamentally Sound with former Wisconsin player Ben Brust.

Go ahead and give it a listen:
