“There have been a few episodes where I had to talk for the whole time. I remember someone asking me ‘What do you think about respecting the name and number instead of the team?’ and I was amazed, because that’s why I do, I respect them for how they play, not their team,” Tomashoff said.

Tomashoff got the idea to create his own podcast after going to a sports broadcasting camp “Play-by-Play” at UCLA during the summer.

“I heard about Play-by-Play in a magazine and it sounded interesting, I wanted to learn about how to talk about sports,” Tomashoff said.
