30 Minutes of Madness is a podcast that broadcasts news and insight to sports fans. The show debuted on March 22nd, 2011 and now airs every Tuesday at 6:30 PM EST. Each episode is hosted by Nick Mandarano and co-hosted by Matt McCullers, JT Volpe, or Dan Spinelli.
Why is it called 30 Minutes of Madness?
When the show first aired, the intent was to broadcast from 6:30-7:00 PM, hence 30 Minutes of Madness. On January 25, 2012, 30 Minutes of Madness was extended to 45 minutes, airing until 7:15. For simplicity's sake as well as the goal of keeping a prestigious name, we decided not to change the name. Instead, we added a 15-minute segment at the end of 30 Minutes of Madness called "Overtime."
