The Jazz’s season is over, and it’s time to figure out what’s next.

After a lengthy hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Andy Larsen and Eric Walden went into the office in a quiet afternoon — seriously, we were just about the only ones in the office, as everyone works from home — to record a podcast wrapping it all up and looking forward.
