As you might have read on this fine website recently, my pal Travis Ulle and I have brought our weekly Cleveland sports podcast, The Nail in the Coffin, to Waiting For Next Year. For over two years, we have been talking Cavs, Indians, Buckeyes and (sigh…) Browns, with occasional diversions into sports media, WWE and pop culture. In other words, we hit on a lot of the subjects that have drawn you to WFNY. We make no claims about reinventing the wheel in podcasting, but we do try to offer different perspectives in our own irreverent style.
Every now and then, we bring on guests. Some of them are friends who have interesting opinions and just need a microphone to share them with the world. Others are Carlos Baerga, actor Christopher McDonald (you remember him as Shooter McGavin in “Happy Gilmore”) and WWE manager extraordinaire Paul Heyman.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll share some of our favorite episodes from the past two years to help give you a better sense of what our show is and what you’ll be getting from us moving forward. Today, we’ll get you started with our most recent episode, when we brought on WFNY’s own Craig Lyndall to talk about The Nail becoming part of this great site, as well as Craig’s #SellTheBrowns movement and the state of the Cavs.
If you enjoy this episode with Craig, we encourage you to subscribe to Apple Podcasts, Google Play or Stitcher. (And, of course, you’ll always be able to stream every future episode right here on WFNY!) We welcome five-star reviews with open arms, too.
Later this week, we’ll be back with a new episode as we dive into college football’s conference championship weekend. Fingers crossed, we should have an excellent guest joining us.
Thanks for checking us out. Travis and I are proud of the venture we’ve built over the past two years, we’re excited about becoming part of WFNY, and we hope you’ll stick with us now that we’re here. This is gonna be fun.
