Are Adam and Nathan heroes? Probably not. But they are hosts of the award-winning weekly Nevada sports podcast Wolf Pack fans needed for too long. Nathan was twice named the Nevada Press Association Sports Columnist of the Year while covering Nevada football, Nevada basketball, and Nevada baseball for the Sparks Tribune. He also hosted his own show on regional ESPN Radio. Adam graduated from Nevada in 2017 after seven or so years of undergrad and shares his knowledge, largely about losing bets and Mackay Stadium tailgates. Relevant guests come on weekly so you can stay current on everything Nevada while the Shoup brothers provide unique, and candid, insights on Wolf Pack sports, and Reno culture at large, that Northern Nevada was missing.
