ALLEY-OOP! Grab your kicks and hit the court because today we’re joined by writer, puppeteer and basketball podcaster, Freddie Rivas (he/him) to talk about the most elite sport in North America - Basketball! Not a sports fan? Fear not, because we’re getting a beginner friendly crash court in what makes Basketball one of the most beloved sports of all time, from the bombastic trick shots to the grinding defense, the player personalities to the accessibility of courts. We talk about the Raptors championship, why a well made team is like a D&D party (and how the Harlem Globetrotters are definitely bards), the similarities between sports fans and nerds and how basketball team logos feature FAR too many basketballs.
