Legendary ESPN college basketball analyst Dick Vitale joins the Glass Half Empty podcast this week! We discussed:

- Raising money for the V Foundation to benefit cancer research; you can donate, purchase raffle tickets for a luxury car, or buy an autographed book for which all proceeds go to charity at

- Seth Davis's excellent recent profile at The Athletic, which went through the highs and lows of his life growing up, in coaching, and in broadcasting. Why do losses hurt coaches more than wins feel good? Amidst the emotional ups and downs, are there middles for Dickie V?

- How Vitale landed at ESPN and when he realized it was going to be a juggernaut.

- The underrated precision of elite play-by-play broadcasters.

Hope you enjoy!
