On the latest episode of The Dropcast, semi-professional podcaster and cultural commentator Chris Black provides some choice feedback on the week’s hottest news. Ball Boyz Ian Servantes and Kyle Hodge offer piping hot takes on arguably the most-talked about Nike campaign of recent times, which of course is the company utilizing Colin Kaepernick as one of the faces of its 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign. Listeners weighed in with some spicy opinions of their own.

We also talk about the adidas Stan Smith, and how the legendary tennis player it’s named after has cheekily come to terms with the shoe’s global popularity. That’s evidenced in his new coffee table book with adidas: “Some People Think I’m Just A Shoe.” Also if you have no idea who Mike Kelley is, listen up to hear why he deserves to be called so much more than just a “Supreme collaborator.”
