My First (And Last?) 18 holes With Ira Kaufman

Monday, May 20th, 2019

In episode 25 of The Todd Wright TODDcast, Todd offers a first-person experience from playing a round of golf with the great Ira Kaufman. To be clear, Ira is not “great” on the golf course. Not even close. However, the conversation throughout the afternoon was exactly that. Among the topics were Ira’s opinion on what makes golf lessons worthwhile, the argument for and against John Lynch in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Ira’s favorite Seinfeld episode. All of this was obviously done with our friend and colleague Steve Duemig in our
thoughts. Todd will devote an entire podcast to his longtime friendship with the Big Dog in a couple weeks. The TODDcast is presented by Brandon Legal Group and Pin Chasers. The TODDcast is presented by Brandon Legal Group and by Pin Chasers.

Training Camp 2016 Kicked Off & Joe Joined The Big Dog, Steve Duemig

Saturday, May 18th, 2019

Man, Joe had so, so many great memories with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, the great Steve Duemig, The Big Dog, who passed away Thursday.

Joe dove into the Spreaker archives last night for a taste of the JoeBucsFan Hour that Joe had with Duemig on WDAE from 2013-2017. Duemig gave Joe a lot of latitude to take over Duemig’s top-rated show and to challenge him, which is really what made the weekly, 5 p.m. segment unique.

Nobody came after Duemig on the air without getting smacked down or booted. But for some reason, Duemig let Joe keep it real — always.

A July 2016 episode is below:
