We’ve got a new show hosted by:
- beloved ex-Eagle Brian Westbrook
- former 97.5 the Fanatic host Eytan Shander
- former 97.5 the Fanatic host and longtime Eagles writer Geoff Mosher
- Sixers Outsiders co-host Krystle Rich
It’s a web series and podcast called For the Record and it’s pretty straightforward – just four hosts sitting around and talking about sports and culture for a full hour without commercial breaks or useless phone calls via “Bob from South Philly.”
Phone calls like this:
Host: Bob from South Philly, you’re up.
Bob: Yeah? Hello?
Host: You’re up.
Bob: Oh okay, let me take you off bluetooth.
Bob: Yeah, hi? Can you hear me?
Host: I can hear you.
Bob: I want to talk about the Eagles. I think they should bring back John DeFilippo.
None of that on this show.
The first episode touches on Eagles/Cowboys, the Jimmy Butler and Joel Embiid thing, plus a top-5 rappers list and some dating stories. Krystle went Jay-Z, Biggie, Tupac, Nas, and Black Thought with her five, which is pretty solid. I would drop Black Thought for DMX and throw an honorable mention to the entirety of Wu Tang and the criminally underrated Bun B.
It is my understanding that the show will incorporate social media and emails moving forward, however people like “Bernie from Broomall” will not be chiming in.
All of these hosts will continue to do what they already do. Westbrook is a 97.5 contributor. Eytan is also doing FOX 29 and the Derailed show with Harry Mayes. Geoff has his Patreon site and also co-hosts the Inside the Birds podcast with Adam Caplan and that guy who went to Pitt.
