Hey, it’s Adam here. A quick podcast update for you as we near the end of the first week of July, 2021. Here’s a snapshot of what’s happening behind the scenes.
I have two conversations recorded that are yet to be edited. The first features Joanne Borzakian Ouellette. Joanne worked with Reebok for over 16 years. From 1985, as a Marketing and Promotions Manager, before assuming the role of Global Marketing Director NBA Basketball in 1992 – where she spent almost ten years building long-term industry relationships and friendships with some of the biggest names in the game, including Hall of Famer, Shaquille O’Neal. Her family are candidates for the title of Greatest Boston Celtics fans ever – their lineage stretches back almost five decades. We had a wonderful chat about Joanne’s remarkable life in basketball.
The second recording is part one of my conversation with Wali Jones. He starred in college at Villanova, before entering the NBA and earning an All-Rookie selection in 1965 and winning an NBA championship in 1967 as a key member of one of the most-dominant teams in history - the Philadelphia 76ers. Wali discusses his memories of being teammates with the iconic Wilt Chamberlain and much more.
Numerous topic-based episodes are also in the works. Fans of Tom Chambers would be wise to keep an eye on the podcast feed over the coming months. Plus, upcoming episodes will feature authors discussing a range of great basketball books.
In the not-to-distant future, I’ll be updating my website. It will also offer the ability for fans of the show to support the podcast monetarily. Completely optional, of course. You will be able to make PayPal donations, sponsor episodes, or visit an affiliate link - at no cost to you - to basketball-related retailers here in Australia and the USA. Listener support will help offset some of the costs involved in producing the show, which incredibly is approaching its ninth full year.
Remember, you can always reach me via e-mail. All the best and thanks once more for being a listener of the show.
