Who Are we?

Starting out in 2017, The Crowded Booth was a one-man podcast that talked with athletes and coaches about their experiences in their respective careers.

Fast-forward to now, and we have launched as a multimedia sports network with podcasts, live shows and newsletters. We strive to tell stories at the local, regional and national level.
