Introducing “Good Morning Pride”, Episode 1

We at Detroit Lions Breakdown podcast are always looking for ways to expand our platform, which has led us to a new segment we have tabbed “Good Morning Pride.”

With the unfortunate and immediate shutdown of the Pride of Detroit podcast (of which, our own Erik Schlitt has been involved with for the last two years), we know Lions fans are looking for more content to consume. That has led us to create this new segment, where Erik welcomes a guest from Pride of Detroit onto the show and the guys record a quicker, more easily consumable podcast for our listening audience.

In this inaugural episode, Erik is joined by POD senior editor Ryan Mathews. As part of the segment’s format, Ryan (the guest) will pick the topics that he wishes to discuss, and the pair chat for roughly 30 minutes.

So without further ado, here is our first episode of “Good Morning Pride”:
