Harold Kuntz once covered Bob Stoops and Mike Gundy with KOTV in Tulsa. He’s moved on to Fox 4 in Kansas City, which means he has moved up to covering Patrick Mahomes, Taylor Swift and multiple Super Bowl runs by the Chiefs. Harold details life inside Chiefs Kingdom on this episode of Mind Games, starting with how the world’s biggest pop star has made this Super Bowl run the most interesting. Is it the most tiresome run for neutral fans?

Harold comes to terms with that fact, though it has more to do with Mahomes and the Chiefs’ sustained excellence than a Swift effect that gets a bad rap. Before leaving, Harold tells listeners why the Chiefs should win another title next week, why the Jayhawks might just win the Big 12… in football!… next year, and where barbecue connoisseurs must eat in KC. 

Episode highlights:

2:20: The Belldozer enters the Taylor Swift discussion… That is, his wife does

5:55: Proof that Taylor Swift has provided the NFL a lot of new fans

8:30: “Chiefs fatigue” has less to do with Taylor Swift than Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid

18:00: Why the Chiefs are the pick over the 49ers.

31:20: The shock of Kansas as a potential Big 12 football favorite
