In the last couple weeks, there has been quite a few developments in the world of Kansas basketball. Jack Whitman transferred into the program. Dwight Coleby graduated and decided to transfer out. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk suffered an injury early in the NBA Combine and was forced to sit out the remainder. And of course, now there are holes in the roster to discuss again. I was joined by Steve Fetch in this episode, and while the majority of our discussion was about basketball, we found time to talk baseball and football as well. Make sure you look for my flaming #hottaek during that baseball discussion.

As always, we are still looking for help with the creative side of the podcast. While we have some music that we are using, I’d love to have someone in our readership help come up with something a bit more RCT-focused. And of course we are still looking for some high-quality artwork to use for the podcast as well.
If you are interested in being a guest on the podcast, just shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to schedule an appearance. The topic doesn’t even need to be explicitly Kansas related, but instead could be a topic that our readers would find interesting and/or entertaining.
