WLP NFL DRAFT COVERAGE

The NFL Draft will be #NORTHWESTERN central this year!

Not getting your NU fix from the usual talking heads? We have you covered!

First, we sat down with Defector Media writer and Northwestern’s own Kalyn Kahler to dive into the 2021 NFL Draft, what she’s hearing from behind the scenes, and why this will be NORTHWESTERN’S draft! You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.

Last week and this week, we’re making guest appearances on the Winning Cures Everything podcast w our boy, Chris Giannini!

You can watch on YouTube (links below) or download the audio on your favorite podcast app by searching “Winning Cures:

Sam on the 1st round last Tuesday

John on underrated guys last Thursday

Scuzz on evaluating past drafts this Tuesday

Lastly, as we’ve done for the last 10 years, we’ll be recording an UNHINGED live draft pod with the Gary & Chris from WCE, and BROADCASTING LIVE on Thursday night! Join us live for a full-bore celebration of the (hopefully) two Northwestern 1st round picks, send us your questions & comments live — we’ll be having a lot of fun throughout the night. THIS is the link to join the live feed on Thursday night.

For a taste, here’s the link to last year’s mayhem… we promise to be on time this year!)

#GiveNoQuarter and GO CATS

Supporting Our Communities this B1G Season

A listener (Thanks Sam!) reached out to ask us about local pandemic-related charities to support while enjoying the return of the #B1GCats. This got us thinking about what we can do to support our community: we’ve decided to donate meals through Soul & Smoke each game week this year. We’re really excited about supporting this local Evanston business with deep Chicago ties — since March they have provided over 100,000 meals to those in need in the Chicago area, and are serving a critical need in our communities. Please read below and join us if you are able to give, either to Soul & Smoke or another community organization of your choosing.

Summer (Fall?) Preview Redux!

Now that the B1G is back on the calendar, we are revisiting out summer preview podcasts, running down each and every team in the conference. We think the initial previews we recorded in June and July have held up pretty well – there have been some opt-outs and of course the schedules have changed – but they’re a great place to start your binge-prep for Oct 24th.

We’ll be releasing our final two previews in the next two weeks, and will also revisit the new schedule and key player changes, before finally digging deep on the B1G Cats the week prior to the start to conference play.

Below are the links to the 1st 10 preview episodes – immerse yourself in B1G Cats prep and send us your feedback and your questions!

Cheers, #GiveNoQuarter, and Go Cats!
