The Un-hiatus: Coronavirus quarantine can't stop us
Happy Quarantine Day! Coronavirus got you down? Maybe the lack of live sports just has you down? KSL's Ryan Miller and Sean Walker are here for you. We'll recap the #CoronavirusShutdown that started with Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz and the NBA, and spread to every major sport in North America (including Ryan's beloved NWSL).

Episode 24: Quin Snyder, Joe Ingles sign extensions, and the Jazz 2019-20 season is here
KSL.com reporter Ryan Miller takes a few minutes on a wild day of breaking news to chat with producer Sean Walker about the upcoming Utah Jazz season, which starts Wednesday night at Vivint Smart Home Arena against the Oklahoma City Thunder. What was a bigger surprise — Snyder's extension to keep him in Utah long enough to finish building a house, or Ingles' deal that will keep the Aussie on the Wasatch Front through 2022? Plus, the guys have some burning hot takes for the current iteration of the Jazz. Is a winless preseason merely a harbinger of things to come, or can the Jazz pull it together in time to live up to lofty expectations by the fanbase (and management)? Can Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley and the rest carry the Jazz to the tops of the Western Conference? What about the rest of the 15-man roster? What roles will Stanton Kidd, Royce O'Neale and Miye Oni play on the team? And finally, Ryan answers the most burning question of all: Which Hogwarts' House will take in each Jazz player, as well as coach Snyder?

Ryan Miller is back in Utah, which means he and Sean Walker from KSL.com break down the United States' recent demoralizing FIBA World Cup finish.

Episode 20: The Slow-Your-Roll Jazz Newcomer Draft
Oh, the offseason. The time of unblemished records, endless optimism and hope — beautiful, glorious hope. The Jazz will enter the 2019-20 season coming off what many see as the team’s best offseason ever. They got their point guard in Mike Conley. They got a versatile stretch four/wing in Bojan Bogdanovic. They found a replacement for Derrick Favors in Ed Davis and even Jeff Green. And got a former lottery pick that could still develop in Emmanuel Mudiay. So, yeah, the Jazz might as well start planning a parade around Salt Lake next June. Or maybe not... This isn’t the first time the Jazz have been hyped coming into the year (though, it’s hard to find a time that there has been this much excitement from national media and Las Vegas for a Jazz team). Some worked out. Others? Not so much. On this week’s Jazz Shorts podcast, KSL.com’s Sean Walker and Ryan Miller draft their teams of the most disappointing players in Jazz history — players that created a buzz but didn’t quite live up to expectations — and give their burning takes on who of the newbies are most likely to be join the list.

Episode 19: Donovan Mitchell for Team USA's Captain America
Is this the worst Team USA of all time? The Ringer thinks so ... but also doesn't? Ryan and Sean discuss this hot take of all hot takes in advance of the FIBA World Cup in China, which tips off Aug. 31. Regardless of level of talent, Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell is poised to be Captain America. Is that a good thing for the Jazz? And how can the NBA help international basketball. In "This Week in Irrational Upsets," Ryan goes off on bananas. Yes, bananas. And Sean has a problem with fantasy football.

Episode 13: Donovan Mitchell is a true American, and the Utah Jazz turn 40
Ryan and Sean are back to discuss Donovan Mitchell's callup to the U.S. national team for this summer's training camp. Will he be selected for the full squad for FIBA play? And if he does make it, should he accept it? These are all questions we need to know. Carter Williams stops by to discuss his birthday tribute to the Utah Jazz, who turned 40 years old this past weekend. What do we learn from looking back at the Jazz's move from New Orleans? And what does the future hold in Utah (hint: a lot, thanks to Gail Miller and the legacy trust)? Finally, is D'Angelo Russell going to join his good friend Donovan in Salt Lake City? Sean hopes so ... but not for the reasons you are probably thinking. And did Sean just agree to buy a parakeet? Download now to find out how Ryan pulled off that accomplishment.

Episode 12: On és al món Ricky Rubio?
Ryan Miller is piping hot with Jazz takes. First, one why Ricky Rubio is telling a Catalan radio station that the Jazz "haven't made him a priority" ... or something like that? Then, he's hot with Utah's mini-camp roster, which produced such free-agent gems as Royce O'Neale and Willie Reed. Then, Ryan decided he was going to get ... mad? .... because Donovan Mitchell is friends with EVERYONE who the Jazz invite to Utah for a pre-draft workout. OK, so maybe he's not mad at that last part. But he's steaming hot. Oh, maybe that's just because the air conditioning at the KSL.com offices has been turned off.

The guys then discuss the four college standouts who pulled their names out of the draft: Utah State's Neemias Queta, BYU's Yoeli Childs, Utah's Donnie Tillman and Weber State's Jerrick Harding.
