FlipCast Episode 78: The great AirPods experiment

June 15, 2019

***NOTE: Users may experience a lower-than-usual sound quality in this episode. An explanation lies in the description***

On this episode: Robbie and Shawn tackle two brand new champions while playing "Gloria" one more (last?) time. They get geared up for what will be pure insanity in the NBA offseason, while also chatting about the Pirates' recent slide, the Women's World Cup and a shortened edition of This Week in Petty. The sound quality for this episode might be below our modest standards at The FlipCast thanks to Shawn and Robbie recording remotely, which they've done before, with Shawn busting out his AirPods instead of his usual microphone, which he hasn't done before.
