Eskimo Empire Podcast bonus episode (!) covers Eskimos Launch Party 2016

The Eskimo Empire podcast is back at it this week with a bonus episode featuring live recording from the Eskimos 2016 Launch Party.

The Eskimos hosted the Launch Party for fans to interact with players, get introduced to the upcoming stadium changes, see the new jerseys and have a few beers.

The boys from the podcast were able to set up and get some immediate fan reaction as well as some surprise guests. Len Rhodes, team president and CEO, dropped by to talk about the new patio bar coming to Commonwealth, and the choice to move the wall of honor to field level so that LED displays may be installed around the stadium. In pictures, this looked great. He took a moment to discuss the new jerseys and the connection to the fans through events like this.

Tony Washington, Justin Sorenson, David Beard and Nate Coehoorn stop in to say hello and give us their thoughts on fan interaction. They are all pretty excited to get started on the title defense, too!

Last, but definitely not least, a number of fans that have been or will be on the podcast give their thoughts on the new jerseys, the upcoming season, and the excitement of the launch party. Even Section O stops by – all in all, lots of fun was captured in spur-of-the-moment conversations.

A big thank you to the Eskimos, and in particular Len Rhodes, for having the podcast there and joining in the recording. You can find the Eskimo Empire Podcast on iTunes or click on the banner directly below. As always, we will absolutely talk to you in two weeks.
