In Los Angeles, at the center of one of the most compelling and complicated rivalries in basketball, is Jerry West. Having spent the first forty years of his career with the Lakers, and his last three with the Clippers, West has become an icon for fans of both and a personification of the phantom thread that runs through the city and the sport it loves. Episode One chronicles the birth of basketball in Los Angeles, and how the city may not have invented the game, but created fertile soil in which the modern NBA would take root. Narrator: Keith David. Guests include: Jerry West, George Lopez, Chris Lloyd, D.J. Waldie, Brian Short, Harold Gifford.

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."
