Air Buds is a basketball lifestyle podcast hosted by Jamel Johnson, Peter Moses, and Mike Benner where they have stupid smart discussions about the NBA.

Rank #1: Air Buds: Adam Friedland

Podcast cover
Read more

The Buds are back and we are NOT playing around! We talk about general NBA gossip, Doc Rivers getting stripped of his powers, Kyrie trade rumors, and NBA Live versus NBA 2k. We also fix the NFL. Then we welcome comedian Adam Friedland (Cum Town podcast, etc.) to have a wide-ranging conversation that covers a lot of basketball topics and beyond. This is probably our longest and most entertaining pod, but also the audio peaks a lot. Sorry. We'll fix it next time!

Then we go down a long and winding road with Andy about working at Tinder, fighting misogyny on dating apps, and nightmare dating stories. This is a Fun episode, guys.
