The generation of ESPN podcasts discussed above have been on the final stretch for a while. This rapid decline has coincided with the influx of bigger names. ESPN’s Baseball Tonight, formerly Baseball Today, is now hosted by ESPN.com baseball writer Buster Olney; Football Today is now hosted by SportsCenter anchor Robert Flores; NBA Lockdown, formerly NBA Today, now features ESPN basketball analyst Bruce Bowen. The intrusion of these network personalities has, unsurprisingly, homogenized what was once the last redoubt of distinctively voice-driven and strange content on the network. ESPN podcasts used to be unique, and seemed doubly so given the increasingly monolithic ESPN voice. They’ve since been assimilated, and now seem, mostly, like more of the same.

In 2006, after two poor international showings by Team USA, Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski called a lock-down defensive specialist: Bruce Bowen. They wanted the then three-time NBA All-Defensive first-team selection to be the glue guy the national team had missed in previous tournaments. But he was cut just three days before the start of the World Championship that Japan hosted that year. It seems Bowen hasn’t forgotten. “I’m an american, I had an opportunity to represent my country and I was thrilled about that. It was one of the highlights of that year… Until I was cut”. “It’s not that I couldn’t make the team, I got cut. I still have problems with that”, Bowen said half-jokingly, half seriously in Madrid, Spain.
