Top of the class: Podcast and video debuts

Students recently produced their first podcasts and video reaction posts on their blog topics. Both of these mediums are challenging and rewarding, and the only way to improve is to keep practicing, or “get reps,” as they like to say at ESPN.

Here are some of the top podcasts and videos from the class.


  • Hoops Talk podcast: Jim Alexander and Ameya Banks on the Clippers, Cavaliers and NBA

  • Full Court Press podcast: Ben Rains and Mariah Woelfel on the state of Chicago pro basketball
  • Crosstown Podcast: Nicole Hack and Juan Pimiento on Manchester United, the Chicago Fire and the state of soccer in the U.S. and abroad
