Sal and Steiny are hosting a double-header with this podcast, with the focus being none other than those NBA Championship contenders: The Golden State Warriors.
Marcus Thompson II was a Warriors beat writer when Stephen Curry was drafted back in 2009. Since then Thompson has become a columnist but one thing has remained a constant: Nobody in the media know more about Curry than Thompson, who was there from the beginning.
Sal and Steiny go deep with Thompson on Curry -- his habits, his off-court routines, the role of God in his life, whether or not he'll remain a Warrior for the long term. Thompson touches on numerous aspects of Curry's game and Curry's life, including which NBA player would be the best teammate for Curry.
Playing Game 2 of the Sal and Steiny double-header is Sami Mamou, the sports director at KSFS radio and assignment editor at KTVU. Mamou is a 23-year-old Warriors fan, which Sal and Steiny think is a little unfair.
After all, the Warriors history is not good. But the present is magical. Sal and Steiny and Warriors fans of our generation have waited a long, long time for a team this good. We're a little jealous of the young 'uns who just came on the scene.
So we put Sami to the test.

We are back with a hosts only episode to talk about the aftermath of Game 2 of the Warriors vs the Pelicans and what we can look forward to in game 3. We hit on if the Pelicans are actually a threat to the Warriors this round, how the Warriors can be better, and what some of the casual fans who are jumping on the Warriors bandwagon should be studying to get up to speed with this year's team.
We will let you listen to hear the rest.
Historic. Groundbreaking. First of its kind.
They all apply to Episode No. 19 of the Sal and Steiny Show when the duo welcomes into The Shed ... wait for it ... a woman. Yes, a woman. Wendy Thurm became the first woman to appear on Sal and Steiny, and we were proud to have her.
Thurm used to be a lawyer but bagged that when she realized she had no life. So she parlayed her love of baseball and her gift for writing into a new career. She's now a free-lance sportswriter, with her work appearing in The New Yorker, Deadspin, ESPN, the Wall Street Journal, etc.
Thurm, a monster baseball fan (seriously, her knowledge is scary), spoke to Sal and Steiny on a variety of topics, including why baseball's future appears bleak, why Buster Posey is no Stephen Curry and whether or not to be concerned with the San Francisco Giants slow start.

Sal and Steiny are back in the shed for a hosts only episode. We start off talking about how good this Warriors team is and get into the Mark Jackson comments about Harden being the MVP and Bogut's reaction. Then we wind our way to Baseball with Opening Day upon us and Sal skipping school to get to Giant's Opening Day. Stadium issues come up again and we talk about fans and the new stadiums in particular Levi's.
Also how tentative the Warriors exit from the Eastbay will be and how the Front office has to walk a thin line when leaving. All around fun episode and we hope you enjoy it!
