About Us

A new look on college basketball coverage.

How we started

As two high school teachers and coaches, Coach and Phil became best friends at their very first job. The school provided faculty housing. The two spent countless hours mulling over every possible sports situation. Once the two went down separate career paths, they kept their tradition alive by doing a zoom call once a week. The podcast was born. One day while they were both respectfully surfing the web on their favorite sports media sites, they realized that they could create their own content to share to the world. Mental Dimes was born.

What Does Mental Dimes Actually Mean?
