I’ve gotta ask, what on earth is the connection there?
Ask him what it was like playing against Bucknell when DP was coaching?
I'm assuming you mean between Fallyn and Vlad? Nothing if that's what you mean. Just as simple as Tony is unavailable and both Tony and I have gotten to know Fallyn really well.
Unless I forgot a game, they didn't play against Paulsen/Bucknell while Vlad was here.
Yep that’s what I was talking about. Looking forward to listening to this.
Vlad played against Bucknell when he was at American.
Welp, I missed the obvious. Back into the prep that question goes! Thanks for pointing that out.
I’m on vacation and not super familiar with Vlad so I didn’t have any questions, but I’m looking forward to listening to the full pod on the way home. My fiancé is not; but I say he who drives controls thy radio tblack chapter 3 verse 16.
Your fiancé may be in luck. We probably won't have the full pod ready until next week as the other half of the pod (the one who does the heavy lifting of editing) is hiding in the woods of Western Maryland at the moment.
One other preview we can get out today, this from Natalie why Mason was the right choice for her coming from UConn.
The full Natalie Butler video pod is up. If you like the video, please hit the like button and subscribe. Thanks!
We've got things...First, Vlad Moldoveanu is posted.
We should be posting our next pod on Monday. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Shaq McKissic, formerly of Arizona State, now with Greek Powerhouse Olympiacos. You won't want to miss his interview, but here is a snippet about how he wound up at ASU under Herb Sendeck.
Do y'all also blast these out to other schools message boards/blogs for visibility? I have no idea who Shaq McKissic is (probably will listen anyway just to see if it's entertaining), but I imagine all those nerds in Arizona would be stoked to listen to this.
That has been part of the strategy. UConn fans really turned out for Natalie on their board and on views. I highly, highly recommend people check out Shaq's interview. He has a super interesting story which we only kind of scratched the surface of. That is something going forward that I've been pondering: doing a preview of our guest to either remind people who they are or introduce them.
But as for Shaq, he is yet another person that we've come across in doing this that I'm just so happy we reached out to. We did almost 2 hours with him and the topics included not only basketball but criminal justice reform, conspiracy theories...he's just a really great guy. He has a YouTube Channel of his own (link below his highlights).
His YouTube Channel:
Our latest episode with Shaq McKissic is now on our YouTube Channel. Shaq went to ASU for college and has largely made a career in Turkey before signing with the legendary Greek Club in Olympiacos. Olympiacos plays in Euro League, which is considered to be the second best league in the world behind the NBA. Olympiacos beat Will Thomas' Zenit St. Petersburg team this past week in Euro League play, and Shaq had a pretty amazing one handed slam dunk (which we highlighted on our Twitter feed).

We have our first of probably a few Expat Extras up today. This is content that is too good not to share, but doesn't necessarily make it into the podcast itself.
Really excited to announce our next guest. He, like Shaq McKissic, is also in the Euro League (which is widely considered to be the second best league in the world behind the NBA). He also happens to be among the members of the Mason Final Four Team.
That's right, get your questions ready for Will Thomas! Reply here or hit us up on Twitter (@ExpatHoops)!
We're going to be posting Will Thomas' interview tomorrow morning. We're also starting up a newsletter format where we're hoping to put out complimentary content to go along with our episodes. Sign up here for that: https://t.co/1PQoNWoSjB?amp=1
