Dear Canis Hoopus,
We’re back! With the help of Chris Riazi and Dane Moore, two of our writers here, we have revived the old CH Podcast. Download the podcast on iTunes here. You can also listen on SoundCloud (see below).
We recorded this episode on Monday night so there’s no discussion about last night’s putrid performance in Philadelphia, but that’s probably for the better.
As always, we appreciate feedback and certainly hope you enjoy the podcast. We had some technical difficulties with my microphone volume but it’s still fine. I also still haven’t taught my dog how to bark at hot takes, though he did a pretty good job of not ruining the first podcast with his usual puppy antics.
