99.9 The Fan and WRALsportsfan.com are teaming up with ACC Insider & WRALsportsfan.com contributor Lauren Brownlow to air a special eight week podcast series on the supernatural history about North Carolina State University and a possible curse that haunts Wolfpack Nation and its fans.
The first episode was published today along with a weekly column from Brownlow on WRALsportsfan.com. The history of ‘the curse’ will be addressed by fans, local media, and a physiologist. Plans are to feature former players, coaches, and NC State sports personnel, and take listeners through periods of time in NC State sports history where things went terribly wrong.
Regarding the new podcast series, Brownlow says, “Growing up in North Carolina and covering the area teams for over a decade, I’ve long been fascinated with the dedication of NC State fans in spite of a recent string of bad luck, which contrasts sharply with a rich and successful overall athletic history. When I learned about the recently-conceived concept of ‘NC State Stuff – What can go wrong for NC State will go wrong’, and that it had a name, I knew I had to learn more about it. I’ve never believed in it, but I kept an open mind going into this podcast and wanted to figure out, once and for all, if there’s anything to it.”
Dennis Glasgow, Capitol Broadcasting sports radio Operations Manager/Program Director and Executive Producer for the Podcast series says, “We’re very excited that Lauren is taking on this local sports lore that’s been taboo to talk about with most NC State Fans and alumni for decades. It’s one of those stories that everyone thinks they know about, but are in for a wild ride to hear what fans, former players and other NC State alumni think, and if the curse is myth, reality or somewhere in-between.”
