Welcome to Episode 69! This week, Chron’s John McClain and Sports Radio 610’s Jeremy Branham join us to talk Houston sports on The Weekly Brew, the Voice of Houston.
John McClain is no stranger to The Weekly Brew, having joined us on no fewer than four other occasions. He calls in to talk a little Texans, a little Baylor, this and that. Listen, the guy is one of the most veteran, locked-in voices in Houston sports, and he can talk whatever he wants, even if he does throw cold water on the Chad Morris-to-Baylor storyline.
Jeremy Branham is also an old friend of the show. He is a sideline reporter for UH Football, and he shares some insights from the huge upset victory over Louisville Thursday, and delves into Tom Herman’s future with the team and the impact of yet another UH victory over a top-5 squad. Branham is also now the play-by-play voice of UH Cougar Basketball, and will be hosting coach’s shows with Kelvin Sampson every week, and he talks a little bit about what to expect from the team this season (hint: NCAA Tournament berth) and the long-term trajectory of the program under Coach Sampson (hint: future is bright).
As usual, terrific guests with terrific takes get into anything and everything Houston sports. That’s, after all, why we’re the Voice of Houston (according to us, and we would know: we are the Voice of Houston), and to the listeners, we say both thank you and you’re welcome.
But hark – there is one thing you can do for us, and in fact, should. In these uncertain times, people look to symbols of certainty and stability, and for a podcast, that equates to iTunes reviews. We need them. Go to iTunes and click Ratings and Reviews and leave a 5-star review with a little blurb (if you’re on a mobile device, use the magnifying glass in the podcast app to search for The Weekly Brew, and you can do it from there), and we will actually read it aloud to our thousands of listeners. And you’ll be our favorite listener of the week, like, UHCoog2010 is this week.
And remember guys, no matter who you are, where you go or what you do, always, ALWAYS brew responsibly.
