Lupica said, "A podcast is a perfect way for me to talk to people I want to talk to from the world of sports and entertainment and politics in a free-flowing format. And I'm grateful to Larry David, one of the smartest and funniest people I know — and an extremely opinionated sports fan — to be my first guest. The essence of sports is conversation. We're about to begin a great one."
