NEW YORK – John Calipari, Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame coach and head coach of the University of Kentucky men’s basketball team, has launched a new weekly podcast in partnership with Midroll. Cal Cast will feature a variety of topics and high-profile guests from the world of sports, leadership, business and entertainment.
“This podcast is a new way for me to connect with people and to talk honestly with high profile guests who all have very interesting stories and bold opinions,” said Calipari. “I’m really going to have fun with this. Sure, we’ll talk basketball, but with many of my big guests we’ll talk about a variety of things that keep life and the conversation interesting.”
Calipari’s first guest was fellow Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Charles Barkley. An NBA league MVP, 11-time All-Star and member of the legendary 1992 Team USA ‘Dream Team,’ the outspoken Barkley is also a commentator on TNT’s Inside the NBA.
The premiere episode of Cal Cast is available now via iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, Google Play and other podcast platforms. New episodes will be available each Tuesday.
FedEx is the presenting sponsor of Cal Cast. In addition to FedEx, the series is supported by exclusive advertising partners — Papa John’s, Blue Apron and ZipRecruiter.
