After a two week layoff, Joey and Zach are BACK with a massive episode 6 of The Tweener Podcast. The show is headlined by a great interview with Marc Stein, an NBA Reporter and popular media personality for ESPN. Stein is a massive tennis fan who shares his perspective on the sport. We compare pro tennis and basketball players, talk Davis Cup and much much more. Later, Joey and Zach talk about Maria Sharapova testing positive for PEDs and what it means for doping in tennis as a whole. We also touch on the Nick Kyrgios drama before discussing our Indian Wells fan competition. As always we’d like to thank Stick It Wear?! for their sponsorship and hope everybody enters so they have a chance to win a free shirt!
