We are living in strange times. As the COVID-19 pandemic makes its mark on Texas and the rest of the world our small, tight community of water polo athletes, fans, coaches, families are dramatically affected too. We discuss what we know as of Tuesday knowing full well that events
On this week’s episode: Austin College wins four straight on the road, a conversation with Thunder, ODP, and Braswell Coach Sabrina Carlile, and Joe loses his voice in San Antonio.

It’s been a monumental year for water polo in Texas. We re-cap the top stories of the year, good and bad. Plus, there’s so much growth going on we have to cover it. And we share a few new year’s resolutions that there’s little chance of us actually following.
This one is for everyone who has asked, “why don’t we hear more podcasts featuring someone driving up I-35?” You’re welcome. It’s the week before Christmas, which means the sport goes largely dormant. But that doesn’t prevent James and Joe from vamping about on-the-ground efforts to grow high school
A “watershed moment” is how we described the UIL’s decision to officially make water polo a legit high school sport in Texas. Monday’s approval is only about 72 hours old and the celebrations rightly continue, but are tempered by some entirely understandable questions starting with the big one: what
