Denver Nuggets Podcast

The Dig is a Denver Nuggets podcast by Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley that tries to put its fingers on the pulse of the most dominant Denver Nuggets narrative over every 2-week period. It’s actually a re-branded project that was meant to bring famous artists and rich peeps together that came to a head when Nick tried to throw a music festival in the Nuggets training facility only to find out that it didn’t have the infrastructure to keep a chipmunk from an oblique strain.


THIS WEEK’S THEME

The Nuggets are currently running full-steam ahead through the last quarter of the season and into the playoffs. Like a Fordian Western protagonist walking into a saloon, it’s time to size up who are the fakes and who are the real challengers in the way of the Nuggets’ success.

This week’s theme is: Know Your Enemies
