The Answering Machine
Cailey and I will start an Instagram and Twitter where we ask our listeners, to send us any questions, opinions, or even hot takes regarding the world of sports and we will select one or multiple for each show and discuss our opinions and perspectives on the subject as two ladies in sports broadcasting. To make our show unique and more fun, when we pick the questions/takes that we'll be responding to, we will record someone reading them aloud. At the start of each episode, we'll say something along the lines of "let's check the answering machine" and then play the audio as if someone left a message for us.
