We've had our share of famous and semi-famous people on the podcast over the last month, but none is more famous among Coug fans than our next guest, Vince Grippi of The Spokesman-Review.
Vince covered the Cougs for the past five years before "retiring" from the S-R, but that doesn't mean he's retreated to the rocking chair on his front porch to shake his fist at kids trying to run across his lawn.* He's still writing his morning post over at SportsLink, which is a must-read each morning. He's been filling in occasionally on the radio up there in Spokane, and he still follows the Cougs, even driving down from Spokane a few times to check out some practices. He'll be joining Dennis Patchin on the WSU postgame show this fall.
*It's a fun visual, though!
Given all that, we figured it would be awesome to get him on the podcast to talk about the upcoming season, and he did not disappoint.
Click on the jump to find the embedded player for listening. You also can subscribe to our podcast channel on iTunes*, or just subscribe to the feed manually (http://cougcenterpodcast.wordpress.com/feed/) through whatever podcast player you use. BeyondPod is a good one for Android -- the free version is serviceable. You also can find many of our older podcasts here.
*If you use the new Podcasts app by Apple on your iPhone, iPod or iPad, you might have already discovered that it's pretty wonky on a number of levels. There appears to be a glitch with our feed loading the proper metadata within the app. Sorry about that, but I don't know how to fix it. The best workaround seems to be downloading the individual episodes in iTunes and then listening to the episodes through the Music app as you did before the Podcasts app came around. Either that, or get a different app -- here are some suggestions from someone smarter than me.
