Tirico is Back!
Quality, smart questions, engaging interviews. It’s Mike Tirico as its finest, as you’d expect. Great forum for him.
Glad this is happening
So nice to hear the great Mike Tirico stretch out long form. He’s so good hosting all sports but this was really refreshing to listen too.
Awesome podcast and host
Great forum for Mike. His easygoing listening style and engaging interviews remind me a lot from his previous employer’s Friday night The Weekend Blitz podcasts that he hosted during the NFL season. Started listening to him back in 2009 on there and have followed him ever since. Glad he’s back on here now and greatly enjoy listening to him again on here.
