Well, The Flyers Aren't Mediocre Anymore! (PST Show #350)

The Philadelphia Flyers appear to be…good! Are they? Is it just a ruse? Or can this team possibly become a contender this year? Charlie O’Connor, lead Flyers writer at The Athletic and cohost of the Broad Street Hockey Radio (BSH Radio) podcast joined us to get into it. A ton of Flyers talk coming your way!

But first, as the Phillies full squad has reported to Clearwater, there are a couple storylines we discussed: can Andrew McCutchen replicate his level of play from last season before his injury, and what should we make of Scott Kingery’s lack of a fielding role at this point? (approx. 5:15)

From there, we talked about how and why this Philadelphia 76’ers team is the 11th most valuable team in the NBA. (approx. 15:55)

Then we discussed our concerns over the Eagles linebacker situation as Nigel Bradham has been released from the team. They are certainly thin at this position. (approx. 23:00)

This week on the Highbrow Segment, we talked about sports podcasts versus sports talk radio. We’re gave our thoughts on why sports podcasts – and podcasts in general – are, at times, preferred to the general run-of-the-mill sports talk radio show. And do we see current trends in podcasting and radio changing in the future? (approx. 29:55)


On the Lowbrow Segment, in honor of Phillies player Jean Segura who lost 14 pounds by giving up alcohol, we asked ourselves the question: if we had to give up one thing to be healthier, what would that one thing be? (approx. 45:55)

What we’re throwing down on the Table, is an in-depth interview with Charlie O’Connor from The Athletic and BSH Radio. First, we dove into how Nolan Patrick’s situation affects what Chuck Fletcher does at the trade deadline. From there, we talked about Sean Couturier’s pursuit of the Selke Trophy. Why do the Flyers always seem to struggle in the first period? Plus, we discussed Shayne Gostisbehere’s lost season and who he replaces once he gets back to good health. We got into all of this and much more on the Table! (approx. 55:45)
