The Tennis Addict Podcast

Hosted ByMichael Lanich, Eric Lanich, Michael Gathagan

A tennis podcast featuring 3 guys sitting around and talking tennis. We may not have the cache of other tennis podcasts, but we do have the passion.

Hello.  My name is Michael Lanich and I am one of the hosts of The Tennis Addict Podcast.  Well over ten years ago I fell headfirst into the world of tennis.  On a warm summer day and knowing little about the rules of the game, I watched Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer go head-to-head for the 2006 Roland Garros title.  Two titans of the game, in their prime and there I sat, just trying to keep up as my brother and cousin attempted to fill me in on the basic rules of the game.  I was entranced.  I was enamored.  I would never be the same person after that spectacular day.

After years of watching countless tennis matches and engaging in conversations with my tennis-obsessed kin, we decided to hop aboard the tennis podcast train.  We are not former pros and we don’t have access to some of the game’s top stars, but what we do bring to each episode of our podcast is passion.  We always wanted to do a podcast and there came a point a couple of years ago where we were either going to do it or not.  So we jumped in and we haven’t looked back since.

The Tennis Addict Podcast was always intended to be a podcast made with a visceral sense of passion, and done so by tennis fans, for tennis fans.

We record an episode weekly and also produce some extra content like our “Player Profiles” for our Patreon subscribers where we break down the life and career of some of the sports biggest names throughout history.  So if that sounds like something you would be interested in, go to www.patreon.com/freakinggeeks

While we love to sit and talk about all things tennis-related, the podcast is not just about our thoughts and feelings.  This is just as much your podcast in many ways as it is ours.  We enjoy creating a conversation with people that listen to our podcast, which means that we need your feedback to help make this podcast as great as it can be.  If you have any thoughts, opinions or criticisms regarding the podcast, players or current tennis events, please feel free to write into the podcast at: tennisaddictpodcast@gmail.com
