After a brief break, the Blazer’s Edge podcast with Tara Bowen-Biggs and Danny Marang is back! On this week’s episode Tara and Danny catch up on reactions from the league postponing play, the delay to Jusuf Nurkic’s return, the unfinished business of this year’s team, what could happen if the season resumes, the possible financial ramifications if the season is canceled, things to do to pass the time and a reminder to help one another and take care of each other!


A bonus feature this week- if you want to see all of the ridiculous faces Danny makes while Tara rolls her eyes at him... now you can!
