Episode 15.5 - Incomplete "episode" with just Jason

I promised y'all an episode, but fell for the sunk cost fallacy and ran out of time for a guest, so you're stuck with just me reviewing the Spirit's draw with Orlando and looking ahead to today's game against Louisville. Guests will be back in the next episode, promise!

Episode Notes

No guests, just one rapid-fire segment talking over why there's no guest, looking back at the Spirit's 1-1 draw with Orlando, and previewing today's game against Louisville

Episode 9 - Andi Sullivan, Andi Sullivan, and Andi Sullivan

Despite cell reception and internet connectivity issues, Andi Sullivan joins the show as a guest for the first, second, and third times, all in one episode. Among a wide range of topics, we talked about the Spirit's trip to New Jersey, the season overall, and her return from injury

There are three different segments, separating two interviews over two different weeks. Apologies for some brief audio glitching about 1/3 of the way through, that's why we had to postpone and try again (and thanks to Andi for being willing to give so much of her time)
