MGoBlog: The MGoPodcast

The very visual, very professional, and 100% kitten-free podcasts of MGoBlog, featuring the MGoPodcast with Brian Cook, Seth Fisher, David Nasternack, and Ace Anbender, as well as The Teams historical podcast (Seth & Dr. Sap), The Ace Pod, The Michigan Hockeycast (David & Anthony Ciatti), and recorded versions of MGoRadio (Brian & Seth) and the WTKA Roundtable (Brian, Sam Webb, Craig Ross, and Ed Feng)


episode 8: MGoPodcast 12.5: Loves Football, Likes Meat

This episode was recorded before a live Zoom audience from the UM Alumni Club of D.C. A portion of what the people who came paid will go to the scholarship fund.

We are, as always, presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan I might have a very popular podcast on environmental engineering. Our associate sponsors are also key to all of this: HomeSure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, Michigan Law Grad, Human Element, The Phil Klein Insurance Group, FuegoBox, and Information Entropy.

Also my audio turned off in the middle of it, which got screwy.
