Welcome back to the Buddy Ruski Show. This is episode 12, the first episode of 2020... and WOW, what a 2020 it has been. Geez! Like some of you, I have a lot more free time on my hands than I expected to have two months ago but I am grateful to be at home safe and mostly sane during quarantine and I hope you are too. So much has already been said about the impact of COVID-19 on our society so I won't spend too much time talking about it here because I will undoubtedly be writing about it more than once in the near future. I think what we need most at this moment are ways to connect to each other and not let the threads of our community unravel. My goal with this show, as it has always been, is to create connections and tell stories. With that in mind, let me know who you want to hear from during this time! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can find me on social media @buddyruski. Slide into those DMs, people, but keep it professional. Except you, Sammy...
My guest today is David Delaney Mayer. David is a longtime friend from my days in the legendary Watts-Hillandale neighborhood here in Durham. He comes from an accomplished family of basketball players including both his parents, his twin brother Michael, and his older brother Paul. After graduating from Duke University, David now works as a documentary filmmaker. We chat about life in Durham, hoops culture, and what people are missing when it comes to documentaries.
As always, thanks to Jeremy Rist, aka Funkleberry, for bringing us in and taking us out. Special music provided by DRS! Check out their new release on Raund Haus. Shout out to Raund Haus, always!
This episode also marks the first show recorded over ZOOM. You may notice a couple of minor glitches but overall, I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Without further delay, let's tip-off with David.
