Best of 2019: Top SANDCAST Episodes From The Beach Volleyball Season

Tri Bourne-Travis Mewhirter-SANDCAST

Every Wednesday, I say the same thing: This was my favorite episode of SANDCAST, the podcast that Tri Bourne and I founded a little more than two years ago.

I’m not even being cute or lying, either. I just get, in the parlance of Kelly Reeves, so “jazzed” about each one that it really is my favorite…until the next Wednesday, when the former favorite is replaced by my newest favorite. However, as it’s the holiday season, and a great many listeners are enjoying some much-needed downtime from work, enjoying a breather with families, I wanted to narrow down our favorites of the year, of which there were 51 but we limited to 15. So if you have a long flight home, a drive back through the woods from the grandparents’ house, or just want to take a long walk and re-listen to one of your favorite podcasts, here are our best of 2019.
