Hi all. Figured would start a thread regarding the new pod under the ByGeorge/Giant Killer umbrella devoted to speaking with basketball players going overseas. Both of us are Mason grads, so we definitely want to speak with as many ex-Mason players as possible, but won't limit the pod to just Mason players. So we're hoping to just keep cranking out interesting content.

As many of you might already know, we've sat down and talked with Tony Skinn and Fallyn Stephens (Adelphi University). We're set to talk with Mike Mo this afternoon, and have another Mason grad lined up as guest #4.

I'm excited for this podcast! Mike Mo was one of my favorite players at Mason.
We have had such good luck with all our guests so far. Tony was an emphatic yes and with his schedule being so busy it means even more to us he was so willing to come on and make us a priority. Fallyn we adore and we're going to have her on again (update is she is in Iceland now in mandatory quarantine).

All that being said, Mike is pretty much as you'd imagine: a friendly guy. We cut down the pod to about an hour and 9 minutes, but we had more. We might post the stuff we cut to our Youtube channel at some point. We could have talked to him for much longer, but we figured we should let him go considering it was approaching midnight in Turkey.

This has been my favorite interview so far. Skinn was illuminating, but Moe is a storyteller. Good stuff. Can't wait to hear what Ike has to say.
I have two teases here:

1) There will likely be a special guest during the Ike Tate pod.
2) We have another great Mason player lined up after Ike. I seriously cannot emphasize how great we have been treated by the former players. We had no idea what to expect just starting out, but pretty much everyone who has been able to respond to our interview request has been like "just tell me when!"

While we're working on our next interviews, we wanted to share with you a few images from Iceland that our friend Fallyn Stephens took while she was quarantined in Iceland. Her first game is coming up a week from tomorrow (so 9/29), and we look forward to catching up with her soon after.

Finished the Moe episode last week, really great interview. Really enjoy how y'all structure the interviews talking about Mason time then going into pro career. I'm always interested to hear these guys experiences in Fairfax as well and if they keep up with the program. I never thought I'd be interested in a podcast on expat ball but you guys are killing it.

We're sitting down with Ike Tate soon, so we like to ask our listeners for questions they would like us to ask. Feel free to respond here in the thread, but best spot for us is on Twitter @ExpatHoops.

Do y'all want to stay away from questions about his current role and the current team or is that fair game?
