The Rafters Podcast Episode 1


As promised, we actually followed through and began our weekly podcast just in time for this week’s tipoff of the 2012-2013 season.


Expect the podcast to be a free flowing conversation, often straying off topic but reeled in before ever jumping the shark. Actually, we have a whole tank of sharks just waiting to be used as props to our shenanigans. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.


The Wineka ‘Broughs (see what we did there?), Sam and Benn, will lead you through love/hates of the week, the “Starting Five” topics we find most pertinent to speak on, a look around the ACC and national basketball scene, what to look forward to in the upcoming week in sports and pop culture and what to check out on The Rafters. Again, don’t expect this to be the case every week.


For Episode One, The Rafters was joined by fellow UNC Alum, Yankee RB – Ryan Barry – while we got out all our pent up summertime basketball talk and went on about everything from new Tar Heels in the NBA to NC State, of course a couple digs at Coach K and what we expect from the freshmen (Or do we have to call them first years? Damn you, gender neutrality!) and the rest of the season and ACC.


Get comfortable, the first Rafters podcast is a doozy at an 1:26 runtime.


Enjoy, and don’t forget to send us suggestions or tell us how awful we are  over at Twitter @TheRafters.
