What makes a good basketball movie? The moves? The odds? The coach? We can’t say for sure, but join Kalvin and Nick this week as we give out Basketball Movie Superlatives! From super teams to superstar players, both alien and human alike, we talk about the magic of basketball movies and what makes them so special. Whether it’s the Monstars squaring off against the G.O.A.T and co. or Coach Carter whipping a team of wayward youth into shape, there is a little bit of everything.
This week Nick and Kalvin are joined by Karla from the Go Postal podcast to discuss obscure sports. We each pick a weird and wild sport and dive deep into it’s history and present.
