With 2019 now ended, I have moved the podcast to YouTube and discontinued it at Buzzsprout.

I’ve just finished production on the final episode of the podcast and uploaded it to Buzzsprout. Season 2, Episode 10: “Endings” explores the impact of the Triangles and some of their players on both sports and the Dayton, Ohio community. The final episode is scheduled to drop on Thursday, October 17. I hope you’ll check it out.
“Triangles” returns with Season 2 on Thursday August 15. This season will cover the Dayton Triangles’ National Football League years.
