In 1981, while the “Showtime” era was in the early stages of launching the entire league into the stratosphere of cultural and commercial relevance the San Diego Clippers under Irv Levin, make a final play for NBA dominance when they make the ill-fated trade for center Bill Walton, a San Diego-native. In the wake of that mistake, Levin sells the team to a friend of Jerry Buss’ and the Donald Sterling era begins. Former San Diego Clipper executive Pete Babcock shares the absurd working environment of the franchise during his time in San Diego, until the team ultimately moves to Los Angeles. Special guests: Norm Nixon and World B.

Bob Saget's Here For You

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
