The Big Podcast With Shaq
PodcastOne
Much bigger than sports, the show is fun, topical, and slightly irreverent. Shaquille O'Neal talks news, entertainment, controversy, and the crazy life of the Diesel himself. He and his sports sidekick, John Kincade never know who will show up to shoot the proverbial shh..uh, well, you know. To access the archive, go to PodcastOne.com.
Shaquille O'Neal opens the show by talking about the wildly popular Netflix documentary "Tiger King" and the character named Exotic Joe - and how Shaq came to know him, and make a cameo in the show. We're also joined by the owner of the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban, and he and Shaq speculate about the return of the NBA, Mark running for office in the future, whether he ever considered trade Dirk Nowitski, and the fallout from the current pandemic. We also joke about the fallout from No-bama prank, of course we get Borderline, and since everyone is trying to home school their kids we test the guys' elementary school knowledge in a round of the Home School Game.

It's been a rough week for everyone, and Shaq is finally able to check in with the crew from Orlando to give us some updates about how he's weathering the Coronavirus, his status at TNT and what he knows about the pending status of the NBA. John also promised to deliver Barack Obama to the show this week - and despite promising it was not a prank... of course it turned out to be a prank... which set Rob OFF and spun the show wildly out of control. Once we recover, it's the audio of the week, and we select our Final Four for the 2020 Borderline Bracket!
