In light of a global pandemic and the absence of sports, we thought it would be a great opportunity to try something new. This is Wildcat Banter: an interview based podcast series with a new Wildcat athlete on each installment. Jackson Boolbol and Lucio Vainesman co-host each episode, taking a deep dive in the lives of Northwestern athletes and addressing their craft at hand.
In our third episode, we talked with Northwestern men’s basketball guard Eric Zalewski. We address voluntary workouts on campus, the path to a return for a Big Ten season, and Zalewski’s amazing journey from student-manager to varsity athlete.
Be sure to listen to him talk about his journey to becoming a Division I athlete and how Coach Collins announced his spot to him and the team.
