#SuitUP is a news magazine and variety program that covers the business, law, politics, and wider societal perspectives behind sports delivered with music, style, and pop culture. 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 airs on ACast and exavierpope.com.
