The Philadelphia Eagles have a big game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football so it’s only right that we have an even bigger BGN Radio podcast preview show for this week’s matchup.

You may have seen us (meaning: myself and Michael Kist) previously teasing some EXCITING news for BGN Radio. And now it’s finally official: the legendary Jimmy Kempski is back at BGN! Well, sort of. He’s still writing for PhillyVoice, of course, but Jimmy and I will be your main co-hosts for weekly BGN Radio episodes moving forward. You can check out our first podcast together below:
