We’re back! Talking! Podcasting! LIVING!

After a raucous success chatting with voice of the Brooklyn Nets Ian Eagle, we decided… well, not to do podcasts for a while. Sorry about that. But today I had the pleasure of chatting with other voice of the Nets, YES Network Play-by-Play announcer, and co-host of ESPN New York Radio’s mid-day show, Stephen A. Smith & Ryan Ruocco, Ryan Ruocco about all things Brooklyn Nets. Ryan isn’t just a stuffy play-by-play guy — having the pleasure of talking to him today makes it clear that Ryan knows the game of basketball inside & out.

We got to talk weather, Brooklyn, the roster, P.J. Carlesimo, and playoff previewing. For your convenience, there’s a schedule below, as well as a link to download the podcast directly and play it wherever you’d like.
