I’m not able to listen to his radio show anymore, but I used to really enjoy/appreciate

podcast - local hour + national hour + skipped commercials

it's how I listen

I hope this means Dan can push all the envelopes even further

Really curious where he (and this whole crew) are gonna end up? Will Gotz actually walk away from taller cash to stay with Dan??
Side note, the shows have been pretty average lately, but today's was really funny with the Smokey Robinson cameo stuff.

To each his own, but I though the LeBatard program was terrible. It's bad when you think Colin Cowherd's show is much better. lol

My guess would be starting a podcast and make the cash from sponsorships.

As the son of a Cuban immigrant I can honestly say that this got me misty eyed. I know Papi because he is my dad. He left Cuba so that his progeny could have a better life, and we have tried to prove the theory of his sacrifice correct.

Yeah, sadly, it'll just be panels screaming and arguing with one another, and then Greeny vacillating hourly on who he thinks the best teams are in the AFC and NFC.

I will miss the show...just not sure that I'm up to chasing them down via podcasts.
I do admire and respect his integrity and willingness to walk away from $3mil/year because of how ESPN treated him, his staff and his show.

The closing segment to HQ this afternoon was powerful.

It was a good sendoff

I would have liked to hear from the other guest hosts like Dominique, Izzy, Sarah Spain, Mina Kimes etc

Curious what Dan will do next

.....Soon after that day in Miami, Skipper and Le Batard announced Meadowlark, which can be hard to define for even the men who founded it.

Part media company and part production company, it doesn’t plan to hire many employees.

But it does want to make content, mostly about sports, by a group of Le Batard’s friends and collaborators: podcasts, documentaries, scripted shows and more.

Then it wants Skipper to sell that content to the growing list of platforms competing in the new streaming economy.....
