On the podcast, Tony describes his experience covering Caitlin Clark at her introductory press conference as a member of the Indiana Fever. Following a storm of media appearances after the Final Four, Caitlin arrived in Indianapolis to meet with the local media there.

“All the Caitlin’s done since the Final Four — SNL, and then producing a documentary and then [going] to media at the [WNBA Draft] to get drafted and then come to Indy and do media here and then go to Pat McAfee and then go back to school to finish school. It’s like, her life is just thing after thing after thing after thing and answering questions from strangers and being in front of cameras. At some point to me, it’s like — is this gonna be the moment where she looks exhausted? It’s early in the day. She just flew in from a different state, right? Nope. She’s ready to go. She’s excited.”
