Episode 27: Doris Burke
Laughter Permitted is in L.A. to catch up with Doris Burke while she's on the road calling NBA games for ESPN. An icon in the world of sports broadcasting, Doris explains how a basketball scholarship to college changed the trajectory of her life and the role "divine providence" has played throughout her 30-year career. She also talks about what it's like to interview Gregg Popovich, the significance of NBA players saying "Thanks, Doris," after she interviews them and the bond she now has with USWNT star Tobin Heath. Perhaps most importantly, though, we learn how to correctly pronounce "Doris."
