The Podcass 018: Mini-Pod! Brady, Harbaugh, Cam, NFL Week 8

The week got away from us, schedule-wise, so it’s kind of a mini-Podcass and posting a day later than intended.

More sports than expected on the latest Podcass with Canadian friends and cancellations creating more time to talk baseball in anticipation of the World Series beginning.

A four-game sweep was a surprising result, considering the path that the Nats took to the postseason, through the Wild Card playoff against the Milwaukee Brewers, then a shocking NLDS win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, who had the best record in the National League.

Naturally, the Nats led off our baseball segment on WISE Sports Radio, with the Los Angeles Angels hiring manager Joe Maddon, and the ALCS between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros also among our topics. Wednesday’s show was hosted by producer Jordan DeVere, filling in for the vacationing Pat Ryan, along with Asheville High coaching legend Charlie Metcalf.
