It seems as though every week John Calipari is enjoying his new podcast — “Cal Cast” — more and more and doing more and more promotion.
He’s been teasing UK fans about the podcast he did with Louisville coach Rick Pitino that is “in the can” and still has not been released.
Caliipari said Friday it’s no secret how he got Pitino on with him.
“I have numbers of coaches and they have my numbers. Rick has my number and I have his. If he needs to talk to me he picks up the phone, and if I need to talk to him then I pick up the phone. I’ve said it before, we don’t send Christmas cards to each other,” Calipari said.
“We’re 90 miles from each other of whatever it is, and it’s a competitive environment. I just said, ‘Hey why don’t you do this Cal Cast with me, the podcast I’m doing, and we’ll have some fun with it.’ He said, ‘Sure I’ll do it. When do you want to do it?’ I said, ‘This afternoon.’ It’s in the can.”
Next here came the promo.
“There are some things around it that you’re going to want to hear. I don’t know yet when it’s coming out because if people keep asking I’ll wait another week,” Calipari said.
And one last nugget to entice fans to listen when he does decide to post the podcast.
“The stuff with Rick, other than the scuffle, was fine,” Calipari said.
On that part, Calipari was joking — I think.
