As Nuggets fans, our gaze is usually turned westward, and for good reason. But with 8 out of the next 13 games against Eastern Conference teams — including another good test tonight against the Celtics — The Dig takes a look at the major storylines on the other coast. Included in Episode 5, “Wild Wild East,” co-hosts Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley give some love to the Raptors and Bucks as well as some snark to the Knicks and Sixers. The Dig is also excited to introduce a new segment again this week where the hosts show off their acting chops.

The Dig is a Denver Nuggets podcast by @NickHertzogSBN and @JeremyPoley that tries to put its fingers on the pulse of the most dominant Denver Nuggets narrative every week. To be honest, they play pretty fast and loose with the concept of a “narrative,” thought. In fact, they mostly just talk about whatever they want. But it’s fun! You should listen!

If you haven’t already, check out a special documentary-style podcast called Breaking Basketball: A Nugglife Story where The Dig hosts imagine how the 2019-20 season will unfold. The final episode is coming soon.
