Hosted by R. Cory Smith and Michael Clark, the Pack Pride Podcast is the official podcast of Pack Pride. A syndicated partner of 247Sports, Pack Pride is an independent publication that brings you the latest on NC State athletics. You can find us at www.PackPride.com.

Welp, the beauty of shooting a live podcast is that sometimes things go wrong and there's no way of correcting it. That was the case on Monday night as the first portion was cut off, including a look back at the Wake Forest loss -- which was probably a blessing in disguise.

James Curle and Cory Smith were joined by former NC State safety Brandan Bishop at Amedeo's. Bishop discussed his growing pains as a young player, the adversity the current team is facing and much more.

James and Cory also take a look at the start of basketball season by the end of the show, highlighting what the Wolfpack must do to pull out a win over Georgia Tech.
