Broadcasting from the Capital of the Free World, ZardCast is a weekly podcast revolving around the Washington Wizards. Host CT Schwink and a rotating cast of characters break down the week that was in Wizards basketball, dissecting games, hitting on the big stories, as well as unsuccessfully predicting the future. Of course, the conversation is never completely bound to basketball. Come for the hoops and stay for the discourse, because we're never quite sure where this discussion will go.

Schwink, Malcolm and Mike discuss if they're buying into the Wizards after the team’s recent success, Russell Westbrook’s health, a frustrating loss to the Celtics, competent lineup combinations, uncharacteristically taking care of business against the Timberwolves, a season sweep of the Nuggets paired with a wacky ending, Rui Hachimura’s emergence, if Deni Avdija is in Scott Brooks’ doghouse, the overtime victory over the Lakers, under-the-hood positives from a win over Portland and Drew Goodisms.

This podcast was recorded before a loss to the Grizzlies but that game sucked anyway so who cares?

ZardCast rides again!

Spurred by the news of John Wall's trade to the Houston Rockets for Russell Westbrook, Schwink and Duncan fire up the mics with new co-hosts Malcolm and Mike. The guys discuss their initial reactions to the trade, disappointment after not seeing Wall and Bradley Beal together one last time, why the Wizards chose to move on from Wall, what prevented Wall from taking Washington to the next level, whether the trade makes the Wizards better, what Westbrook brings to the team, and if the Wall era was a success.
