Sorry for the subpar audio. Not sure why it was worse than usual but hopefully it won't detract too much from the podcast.

Rod and Eddy Kleinhans will be doing regular video and audio podcasts with us in the near future covering Cal hoops.

I didn't even notice any audio issues. It was an informative listen and I enjoyed having Rod as a contributor. He was always a favorite!

Keep up the great work, Jim.

Rod's audio is less than ideal, but doesn't distract from what he's saying.

Rod is great on the podcast. He brings a different perspective, and I found his takes super interesting. He isn't going to ever fully drink the Kool Aid, and gives real unpolitical answers, and I really appreciate this about him.

That's the style both he and Eddy intend to use when they get up and running with their podcasts.

That's awesome to hear! Thanks for making this happen, Rod seems like a fantastic add to Bear Insider. I'm definitely subscribing to his podcasts going forward.

My son had Rod as his summer camp coach when he was in middle school. Rod was all about making basketball fun and identifying just 2 or 3 skills to focus on (off-hand ball skills and shot selection for undersized guards in my son's case). One of the best experiences he had in youth sports. He kept in touch with him through his pro career in Korea. Very cool guy!
