Matt Maiocco continues to get some can’t-miss guests for his podcasts, be it former GMs, executives, or players affiliated with the San Francisco 49ers. 49ers hall of fame quarterback (and one of the greatest to play the position) Joe Montana is the most recent guest, and there’s always more to learn about the 49ers great.

It’s a bit shorter than Maiocco’s usual podcasts, but there’s a lot of great stuff here. Most of the interview centers around Dwight Clark who will be the Levi’s Stadium guest of honor Sunday for Dwight Clark day. A lot of his former teammates will also be on hand to honor the 49ers legend responsible for The Catch.

The time stamps are below, but it’s definitely worth a listen. Montana comes on at the 03:00 mark. Before the interview, it’s a recap of The Catch, with audio clips from Montana and Clark at a recent gathering.
