Fresh Pixel-and-Roll Podcast: Interview with Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post

Over the past few years, I have produced a video and audio show called “Pixel-and-Roll.” Similar to the Wizards raising their game, we have finally upped our own production level. I secured a microphone and have plans on doing a regular weekly podcast show throughout the season. Mr. Truth About It, Kyle Weidie and I, jammed about Washington’s summer going ons that was broken down into three episodes. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). Other recent podcasts have been about Monumental finalizing an agreement with the city of Washington for a new Wizards practice facility and our impressions of Media Day last week.

The newest podcast that just dropped was an interview with Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post. Last season was Castillo’s first year on the Wizards beat, and he provides a fresh perspective on the team.

Topics in our hour-long discussion include: Castillo’s background, covering Derek Jeter’s last season with Yankees, experience on the Wizards beat after a year, dealing with Coach Randy Wittman after he called him out in a press conference, how much he knew about Washington’s franchise history, impressions of John Wall, reporting on Wall at the All-Star game in NYC, how he includes analytics in his NBA writing, reflections on last year’s playoff run, playing small ball, evaluating the off-season moves, the Kevin Durant factor in 2016, a potential contract extension for Bradley Beal, and his outlook of this year’s squad.

The Pixel-and-Roll Show is available in various formats:
