Chris Walsh joins the podcast as a guess. Walsh has reported on Alabama athletics for several media outlets in Tuscaloosa since he arrived to work at The Tuscaloosa News in 2004. He and Ben Jones talk about the changes in journalism since he came to Alabama, his time covering pro football and baseball, as well as stories from Tuscaloosa. He talks about the first time he was called into Nick Saban’s office and the time he agreed to take a punch from Deontay Wilder.

Here’s the story Chris mentions about the players from Tuscaloosa killed in the Marshall plane crash.
