With over 20 episodes recorded, the guest list is a who's who of the sporting world including former Chicago Bull Dennis Rodman, former Chicago Bear LB Otis Wilson from the 1985 Super Bowl team, Brent Taylor from Bleacher Report, and Columbia Radio Department alums Carmen DeFalco (B.A. '97), and Ray Flores (B.A. '09) from ESPN Chicago.
