Synopsis

Talking About Sports podcast is hosted by a pair of Penn Staters who hail from opposite sides of PA. Each week is a battle of wit, knowledge, and hilarity. It's the right amount of sports passion and humor for any sports fan. A comedian with a gambling problem rants about sports alongside an actuary with a drinking problem. What could go wrong?
