Episode 82- Tennis Great & Podcast Host Patrick McEnroe
He’s one half of one of tennis’ most legendary sibling duos. He’s a renowned broadcaster. He’s married to a Broadway star. Somehow, we got invited to be part of the same podcast network as him which means we also got to score a great interview with him.
Patrick McEnroe and his show Holding Court with Patrick McEnroe is blowing up the podcast airwaves as part of the MuddHouse Media network. Patrick’s show features interviews with celebrities about their own personal love and experiences with the sport of tennis. It’s a great listen, whether you’re a fan of the court or not, with amazing stories you don’t find in your average interviews.
We chatted with our brother in podcasting about what inspired him to do the show, some of his legendary guests and what has surprised him most so far. His episodes thus far have featured such names as Alec Baldwin, Kyle McLachlan, Ben Stiller and many more. We encourage you to have a listen. It’ll make you want to pick up a racket and feel like you’re hanging out with your famous friends.
We’re pleased to be able to say we’re now all family, which of course, meant we also had to ask what a “Happy Birthday” sing along with the likes of Patty Smyth and Melissa Errico in the family. You know, so we’re prepared when we show up one day for the party.
When not podcasting, Patrick is broadcasting on the sport on ESPN. He and his brother John also run the John McEnroe Tennis Academy in New York. Yes, your kids can learn from legends. We made sure to have Patrick give us some tips on where to start in learning the game and how to practice during quarantine. Grab yourself some tennis balls and a racket and get ready to start hitting no matter how many years it’s been since you played.
We talked to him about his own love of the game and his experiences as a player and his favorite tournaments and moments.
Patrick also made headlines recently as one of the first celebrities to be struck with COVID-19. He touched on his experience with the disease as well as his recovery.
Our chat was fun and Patrick’s stories were interesting and captivating. He was down to earth and great to talk to. We look forward to lots of great interactions in the future as the MuddHouse Media family continues to grow and expand. We’re already envisioning company holiday parties, award shows, and travels with the whole gang.
