#SuitUP is a news magazine and variety program that covers the business, law, and wider societal perspectives behind sports delivered with style, pop culture, and positive sports stories not seen anywhere. We cover the suits off the field about the guys who suit up on the field, to the suits in the boxes. We bring the heat and we slice it like deli meat!

#SuitUP Podcast is tailored for your ears. You can listen to the entire podcast for the complete listening experience, the three-piece suit, tie, tie clip pocket square, and lapel flower, or it can be accessed piece by piece under each segment.
