May 27, 2020

Ever since sports vanished overnight, the question remains when they will return. As the complex answers trickle in, more questions emerge. On this week’s episode of Talkback, host Cooper Boardman looks across the sports landscape at the road ahead.

The UFC has already made its grand reentrance. WAER’s Gill Gross joins the pod to discuss his conversation with MMA reporter Ariel Helwani about why and how UFC started back up.

Meanwhile, Joel Godett has seen the effects of budget setbacks for college outside the Power 5. The voice of Ball State talked to WAER’s Cory Berberian about the challenges ahead in the MAC and beyond.

Plus, Alex Perlman spent the 2018 Olympics calling speedskating on Westwood One. He talked to WAER’s Jenna Fink about learning the sport and the future of the games. 

Talkback is a WAER Sports podcast produced by Karl Moeglein. New episodes are released every Wednesday.
