Report” (via Twitter)Very cool that Bill Simmons landed Barack Obama for a podcast. Will be up tomorrow AM. Safe to say podcasts have now gone mainstream.

And what will Simmons and President Obama discuss? It is no secret that President Obama is a sports fan. And in particular he is a basketball fan. And Simmons, AKA The Sports Guy, is one of the biggest voices in the world of the NBA.
