Here’s our 100th DBR Podcast! Special thanks to the DBR Podcast crew for doing such a great job and this time they’ve done something really cool.

Kenny Dennard is the guest. He’s one of Duke’s all-time great characters and is smart and funny as hell. He doesn’t disappoint here.

Great stories including one about how Coach K conceived his third daughter, if you can believe it as well as a tale about the time Coach K wanted to quit Duke. Plus, Kenny gives us his take on what happened in the NC State game and why he is not worried about where Duke is headed this season.
