Will the real stable genius please stand up? Von Decarlo discusses comedians like Dave Chapelle and athletes like LeBron James mental stability vs President 45, as well as creating a lifestyle in which you live your goals 365 days a year instead of making New Year resolutions that you can’t keep.

NBA All Star voting is debated, as well as Draymond Green’s comments about NBA officiating and replacing all the refs.
It’s Christmas Day on the Coach Von Podcast and Von Decarlo gives her listeners a little stocking stuffer of inspiration to help every lonely heart get through the day. She shoots her shot with Christmas game day predictions, and discusses why she has had a lack of hope in the Knicks despite their current success. She expresses how that lack of faith has been parallel in other areas of her life.
Net Neutrality has a major play in this episode as Von Decarlo discusses how the powers that be plan to control the content of what we can see much like how they control modern day television (news) and cable, and how prior to the freedom of the internet, there were people who could deny that things like policy brutality even existed. Von Decarlo also discusses the difficulty of letting go of people and vices, and Carmelo Anthony’s somewhat neutral and very lukewarm welcome back return to the garden.
Today on the Coach Von Podcast Von Decarlo talks about being “guilty until proven innocent” and our pro athletes being at the top of the food chain when it comes to political correctness and integrity.

She discusses parenting, lonely eating, dating and the upcoming NBA Christmas games.
This week on the Coach Von Podcast, Von Decarlo is in studio with comedian Courtney Reynolds for his podcast “Full Court Comedy”, recorded live on Stationhead. The two go at it regarding age, trial by social media, Stephon Marbury’s career in China, the Knicks, and more. By the end of the show, the only thing they seemed to have worked out for sure, is that LeBron James is NOT a weed head. Or is he?
This week on the Coach Von Podcast, Von Decarlo is on an early morning train ride back to New York City after visiting her family in Pittsburgh. She talks about cutting meat out of her diet when she finds it hard to eat the delicious early Thanksgiving meal with her family. Like Kyrie, she’s just done eating a bunch of animals.

Von Decarlo takes several slices of humble pie to the head as she discusses the Cleveland Cavaliers. While she’s not quite jumping ship on her early predictions for King and company, she acknowledges that right now, it looks as if the King needs Kyrie, not the other way around as she so boldly stated after Kyrie Irving’s departure to the Boston Celtics. She blames her current basketball predictions on her full time commitment to her stand up comedy career and by the end of the show, she is full of pie.
Von Decarlo finds herself wrapped up in a Twitter beef with strangers and a so called friend when her tweets are taken out of context after she calls out the misuse of the hashtag “#MeToo”.
