These days, we’ve always got our ears plugged. Whether it’s AirPods, EarPods, Beats, Bose and more, there always seems to be something blasting our eardrums. For Tiger fans, there is no sweeter sound than LSU sports talk. We’ve compiled a few LSU sports podcasts and radio shows worth listening to in your down time, on your commutes to and from work, and maybe even at your desk—just don’t tell the boss.
POD OF GEAXLD
If you like honest LSU sports discussion, Pod of Geauxld is for you. It was launched in 2017 by a group of former LSU students—Michael Dragna, Brett Wynn and Michael Snyder—who had been chatting up football for years just for fun. Now, they chat it up for a big audience of Tiger fans, breaking down all things LSU football and other varsity sports. They occasionally have special guests and talk Louisiana professional sports—all with some solid Game of Thrones mentions thrown in.
