Tuesday The Hoop Collective Brian Windhorst, ESPN NBA Insiders
Wednesday The Lowe Post Zach Lowe
Thursday The Mina Kimes Show, Featuring Lenny Mina Kimes
Friday The Elle Duncan Show Elle Duncan and Gary Striewski

First Draft

The godfather of draft analysis, Mel Kiper Jr., joins tape-grinding do-it-all host Field Yates to break down the top prospects in the coming NFL draft.

The Hoop Collective

Brian Windhorst is joined by Tim MacMahon, Tim Bontemps, and other ESPN insiders to sort out life in and around the NBA world.

The Lowe Post

ESPN’s Zach Lowe uses his unparalleled combination of reporting, data analysis, and film study to provide a smart but accessible look inside the NBA.

The Mina Kimes Show featuring Lenny

Mina Kimes combines intense film study with sharp data analysis – plus her trademark humor and insight. She’s joined each episode by a guest from around the league. (This podcast is in partnership with Omaha Productions).

The Elle Duncan Show

SportsCenter anchors Elle Duncan and Gary Striewski are professionals at talking about sports, but they often end up talking around sports – the drama, gossip, and stories that happen adjacent to the on-field action. They’ll get back on topic eventually. Maybe.
