Mad Jim Nantz last March

Jim Nantz’s recent NCAA championship as lead announcer is the main topic of this week’s podcast with Andrew Marchand and John Aurand, who also discuss Jay Wright’s first March Madness as a full-time announcer.

Bob Iger said it was “inevitable” that ESPN would be offered as a direct-to-consumer service at some point, prompting Marchand and Aurand to continue the long-running debate about when that would be and how much it would cost.

This is the week that Diamond Sports Group, owner of regional sports networks Bally Sports, is expected to file for bankruptcy protection.

The hosts talk about what this development means for fans.

Other topics include changes within ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” production truck and the trend of NFL hosts posting questionable information.

Marchand and Aurand also answer questions from their mailbag about MLS Season Pass package prices and how to tell when broadcasters are out.
