The other day, I had the privilege of talking with Tara Biggs of Blazer’s Edge. Tara is the co-host (along with Kendyl Bennett) of the WHAT (Women’s Hoops and Talks) Podcast.

I was excited to join Tara to cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • The ongoing harassment scandal and how we move forward in covering the team while also responsibly covering the scandal;
  • 2011 Championship memories, in which I talk about how I became a Mavs fan and Tara remembers the Brandon Roy game;
  • That time (the one and only time) I broke a Mavs story (hint: it involved having it all) and that time Mark Cuban went a little crazy in my direction after that really bad Clippers loss;
  • The challenges in covering a tanking rebuilding team, and how we write while still keeping things fresh and interesting
  • And much more.

Tara and Kendyl are really awesome and I’d encourage y’all to give it a listen! Please feel free to make fun of me for forgetting some silly details (like what exactly Wes Matthews’ big injury was) while we were recording in the comments below.

And be sure to give them a follow: @tcbbiggs, @kendylbennett16, and @HoopsAndTalks!
