The #2 Michigan State, Tom Izzo Podcast

izzo_broadway

At Big Ten Media Day here in Chicago I talked to the leader of the #2 Michigan State Spartans Tom Izzo for 40 minutes, literally. And amazingly, we really didn't get that much into basketball at all. It was more about the media, the changing nature of it, and how social media affects big time college basketball.

I also talked with the Big Ten preseason player of the year Kalin Lucas.
With over 40 minutes of tape to sort through I just thought it best to recap some of the best stories from arguably one of the best interviews I've ever done in a podcast. Because that's a heck of a lot of tape to transcribe.

So without further ado, you can download and listen to this podcast here
