If you love a couple dudes bantering about Johns Hopkins lacrosse, LaxPower, & a host of pop culture topics, then you are going to LOVE Episode 1 of The Black & Blue Jay Podfidential with Adam Epstein & myself. We finally did it! Our multi-year con as OBJECTIVE JOURNALISTS masked our true goals - finally giving the People the (mostly) Hopkins-specific pod that they deserve!
Adam & I bantered about a lot of topics in our CRISP 81-minute inaugural episode. We obviously talked a lot about the Jays, but we also discussed what’s happening over at LaxPower, the creation of our College Crosse Reddit page, and the new trailer for Sicario 2: Soldado. Additionally, as most of you know Adam’s a TV & film reporter for Quartz, so we went through his picks for the best shows, films, and performances from 2017.
You can listen to the episode in the player below or over on Podomatic. Timestamps, show notes, and links are below the player. Please subscribe to College Crossecast on iTunes and Google Play so you can catch all our episodes, whether they’re about the Jays or the whole scope of college lacrosse! Shout out to Ryan for blessing us with an amazing skin for the pod. I think you’ll enjoy it as well. Thanks for listening and have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
