“The Quad with Chris Young” — the weekly podcast series launched by the multi-platinum entertainer at the beginning of 2020 — has hit a major milestone this week, notching over 100,000 listening hours since its inception. Each week Chris, along with his co-hosts and friends Josh, Haley “The Bear” and Ryan, discuss four topics: Sports, Music, Movies and a weekly Hot Take.
The popularity of the podcast has been a welcome surprise to Young given today’s times. “We started it about music, movies, and sports – you know, everything that is basically on hold right now because of the pandemic,” he jokes. “It’s actually been a challenge to get news about those three things. But we have a lot of fun with it, and I’m glad it’s become something people are enjoying.”
This week’s episode will feature special guest Jimmie Allen. “The Quad” also recently chatted with WNBA #1 draft pick Sabrina Ionescu. Fans can listen to all episodes HERE. Follow the show on Instagram and #TheQuadwithCY for more updates and behind-the-scenes banter and weigh in on their Hot Take poll HERE.
