Former Rice football defensive back Gabe Baker joins the show as it diverts from sports to talk The Bachelor’s Listen to Your Heart and music.
It’s been an exciting few weeks for The Roost Podcast. The Extended Offseason interview series continues on with special guest Gabe Baker. We covered a lot of ground with the former Rice football safety, covering more culture than sports for an excellent change of pace.
If you want X’s and O’s and (somewhat) succinct college football analysis, give a listen to last week’s show. Dave Campbell Texas Football’s insider Shehan Jeyarajah joined the podcast to discuss the state of the sport and potential alternatives to a normal football season. Almost every FBS team in Texas got a mention, including several smaller schools.
You can always find previous episodes on the podcast page. For now, give a listen to our chat with Gabe Baker on Episode 32.
