The Details

The City of Houston is hosting the 2023 NCAA Final Four (and as a high school basketball coach this is my dream!). We'll be sending more details about the Houston Live Podcast Tour as we get closer to the event. In the meantime, go ahead and apply using the "reserve your seat" button. The event will kick-off with a cocktail hour at 2pm CST on Wednesday, March 29th, 2023 with the event going from 3pm-7pm CST at Hotel Zaza Museum District. So be sure to be in town before then. But please feel free to get in earlier than that! My wife Jamie and I will be hanging around for at least an hour or two before the event for those who want to hang out early.
