In Season 1 | Episode 11 of The Tedi31 Podcast with Dr. Tedi Villasor, Tedi speaks with veteran sportscaster Noel Zarate. Zarate, along with several other local sportscasters, established the Center for Sports Communication (CSC)  and Newbies Broadcasting Academy . In 2020, he hosts “An Eternity of Basketball” podcast along with Atty. Charlie T. Cuna and Sid Ventura.
During our conversation, Noel shared how he got into the field of radio and television broadcasting, his experience calling the 2013 NBA Global Games at the Mall of Asia Arena, thoughts on the ESPN 10-part documentary: The Last Dance, the July 2020 NBA restart, and stories about NBA Greats like Dennis Rodman, Larry Joe Bird, Steve Nash, Luc Longley, and the late Kobe Bean Bryant.
For (Season 1 | Episode 10) of The Tedi31 Podcast with Dr. Tedi Villasor, I had the opportunity to talk with one of the most decorated players every to grace the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA)–The Triggerman: Allan Caidic.
Coach Allan is a 5-time member of the Philippine National Team, a member of the PBA’s 25 and 40 greatest players of all-time, a PBA Hall of Famer (Class of 2009), and author (My Life: Allan Caidic The Triggerman ).
During our conversation, Coach Allan touched on a number of topics: From his basketball influences, to his pre-game regiments, and even his motivational benchmarks during his playing career.
As he looks towards the future, Coach Allan lets us in on his next move.
During yesterday’s Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 2019 (BBWBS 2019) excursion, an effort was made to produce a Vlog (Video Blog or Video log) with the intention of resurrecting my Tedi31 YouTube channel which has been dormant for several months now. Truly, social media management is a full-time job in itself as documentation, editing, and uploading all take a considerable amount of time. Time that–if we are truly honest with ourselves–would be best spent on other endeavours.
