The Podcast returns as I sit down and chat with Tommy G following UC's 62-54 victory over Rutgers. One of the more entertaining podcasts in the history of the ITBP. Really, I can explain the podcast all I want, really this incredible artist rendering of all the topics covered by our guy Shane Harrison explains it all.

As for my attempt to explain, we flip the script on Mr. Gelehrter as we take the questions he's been peppering to the freshman and sophomore players in his Know Your Bearcats series and play Know Your New Media and Broadcasting Director. Before that we touch on the stress of buying new glasses, the #JustinJacksonMeanFace Twitter contest/subsequent prize package the wild goose chase for a bike on Wednesday night and, of course, Fred Savage.

We also talk plenty of Bearcats, we hear from Mick Cronin while talking about mentoring players, the first/second half debate, Cashmere Wright and plans for National Signing Day including the possible return of critically acclaimed Fax Cam!

If you aren't interested in all our delightful, witty banter you can scroll to the 6:40 mark when we delve into UC hoops, though, I can't think of a reason you would want to do so.

Enjoy. And don't forget to subscribe to the podcast through your iTunes account by following the link here, opening it in your iTunes and clicking subscribe.

The Inside the Bearcats Podcast -- now officially on iTunes! -- returns this week as I sit down with the Voice of the Bearcats and GoBearcats blogging colleague, Dan Hoard.

DHphoto.jpgIt has been a while since we sat in the bleachers at Fifth Third Arena in early December and Dan made fun of my less than spectacular setup. Well, he was welcomed into the new, improved New Media Suite/Podcasting Studios (otherwise known as commandeering Tommy G's office space) on Thursday to see how far this feature has risen.

Always great to have Dan on as we chatted about what happened to the uptempo offense, the injuries to Cashmere Wright and Jeremiah Davis III, Marquette, the odd state of the Big East beyond Louisville/Syracuse and what the heck is going on with the struggles at home.

Of course, as always we struggled to stay completely on track. We veered into odd Hollywood couples, how exactly Russell Brand became famous, a statement that may force me to turn in my man card, the Syracuse meal itinerary and Dan's time in college spent playing alto sax in the pep band.

Again, to remind everyone, you can now have this podcast come directly to you on your mobile device, notebook or whatever.

The Inside the Bearcats Podcast returns as I head to the ESPN1530 studios to chat with UC football/basketball engineer/play-by-play/talk-show host and versatile member of the Cincinnati media, Mo Egger.

We dissect all things UC basketball right now from the comfort in being discounted nationally, what evolution of Shaq Thomas could mean, impact of Justin Jackson's benching and the never-ending topic of the effect of the schedule.

Also, we veer off into Mo's brush with Dennis Rodman, the concept of the double-dip buffet, Charlie Manuel's texting ability and the grand honor of winning the Atlantic Division.

Much thanks to Mo for his time, which ended up being more than he probably bargained for, and I'm extremely grateful. Of course, you can read his blog here or follow him on Twitter here or listen to him on ESPN1530 pretty much every day from 3-6 p.m. Enjoy.

Thumbnail image for TGbobble2.JPGThe Inside the Bearcats Podcast opens the new year by welcoming back Tom Gelehrter, UC Director of New Media and Broadcasting as we discuss the football season that was, wild Belk Bowl, Travis Kelce's future, football storylines for 2013 then jump into basketball for the second half of the program to talk about the win against Pittsburgh, the David Nyarsuk development and home games against St. John's (Saturday, 4 p.m.) and Notre Dame (Monday, 6:30 p.m.).

Also, we tangentially touch on Tommy G's bedazzled mic, the three-stimulus listening method, tweeting self-baby pics and, the latest bobblehead to grace Tommy's collection. As you can see here, TG received a bobblehead of himself and it seems I look remarkably like Travis Hafner. So, this photo is merely a dramatization of what the podcast actually looked like.

For reference, football talk goes until about the 24-minute mark and the final 14 minutes focus on basketball and other random ramblings. Enjoy.

With The Crosstown officially in the books, we must rehash what it all means going forward. Thursday I decided to do that by bringing in national columnist from Zac Jackson for the first 20 minutes as we talk about UC's suffocating defense, where they rank among other teams in Ohio and how run down a phone battery in under three hours.

For the second 25 minutes of the podcast I chatted with Rick Broering of to talk about the future location of the Xavier-UC game. It appears Xavier wants it on campus and UC will fight for it to stay at US Bank. Rick and I share this podcast to discuss how both sides feel about the issue and what will ultimately become of this rivalry going forward.

Thanks for reading and listening -- enjoy the podcast. And as always shoot any questions, comments or suggestions to me via email to or hit me up on Twitter at @pauldehnerjr. And yes, I'm working on this being downloadable to iTunes and am very close to making that happen. Things are happening, the wheels are in motion.
