Chris Kluwe (Minnesota Vikings, Tripping Icarus), Matt Detura (HoP Legal Analyst)

July 21st, 2011

Vikings punter Chris Kluwe stopped in the dōjō last night; it was the first time we've had an NFL starter "live" for a podcast recording. Kluwe has been outspoken on recent NFL policies and the recent CBA negotiations, and we asked him about that and a few other things.

We also spoke with HOUSE OF PUNTE legal analyst Matt DeTura, who discusses the NFL CBA and gives some great-if-a-bit-dated insight into the Roger Clemens mistrial and Casey Anthony verdict.

Matt Cassel (KC Chiefs), Will Brinson (

July 19th, 2011

Episode 83. Taped 7/13/11. Cassel interview taped 6/23/11. Runs 81 minutes.

Rob Iracane (Big League Stew/#HEIST), Diana Klochkova (WTF Panama), w Special Guest Phil Catelinet

July 8th, 2011

51 minutes. Taped 7/6/11.

Episode 82 was a bit of a trainwreck. Phil Catelinet was good enough to sit in for Amber Jones who was (no shit) at a Britney Spears concert. We had a chat with Diana Klochkova, who used to intern with the Oakland Raiders and now lives in Panama (and chronicles those adventures here). Apparently the internet in Panama blows. Good to know.

We also had connection issues with Rob Iracane, and I don't mean the wireless signal; Rob totally forgot about his interview. We did get the phone line sorted out in time for him to tell us about the #HEIST happening in DC this Saturday. Aaron Merrill and I might see you there.

Shakey and Phil Raintree make appearances as well. This is the second show for which we did video chat, but I forgot to turn on the recorder, so none of those images will ever see the light of day. Bask in your own awe of what a high-tech operation we're running here. Remember, the first five minutes are the toughest.

May 4th, 2011

Dan Levy, formerly of On The DL Podcast, makes his first podcast appearance since closing down his own show. Dan returns to podcasting as special guest co-host for Episode 76. Can he get through the entire show without mentioning SB Nation? MAYBE!

Brian Bassett from The Jets Blog checks in and discusses the draft and Rex Ryan's stampeding of the NFL media over the last two seasons. And then we all play a game called "NFL DRAFT PICK OR REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER?"

April 26th, 2011

Bryan Douglass (Twitter, Tumblr) until recently was managing editor of Gunaxin's sports page. Bryan also did some fantasy writing for Fanball and for other outlets. We discuss whether or not NBA players are actually using cocaine these days, as well as some of the recent happenings in the blogosphere. And for a fantasy sports guy, Bryan really has it in for those sabermetricians.

Maggie Hendricks (Twitter) of Cagewriter, Fourth Place Medal, and NBC Chicago tells us why Chicago being so corrupt is okay and how she got involved in covering MMA. She also relays a comparison between Lovie Smith and a car salesman that struck us as spot-on.

Aaron takes the helm in the trivia segment and quizzes Josh on his new hometown. Shakey reads poetry. Phil does an Old-Timey Newsreel. It's long and hard, but yeah, we're back.

John Ezekowitz (Phoenix Suns)

February 9th, 2011

John Ezekowitz, a stats expert in the employ of the Phoenix Suns. John is also co-president of the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective and a contributor to College Hoops Journal. I ask him how a sophomore in college gets hired by an NBA team and his newest brainchild, called Free Throw Plus.

Amber Jones reads the news. Aaron Merrill compares my head to somebody else's body part. Phil Raintree does the first NFL Old-Timey Newsreel, complete with new "sponsor."

Ines Sainz (TV Azteca), Ashley Burns (With Leather)

February 4th, 2011

Episode 67, Part II.

Ines Sainz was again the star of the NFL's media day. This is her seventh Super Bowl, and I ask her what the big deal is. I also ask her if the Jets issue has finally been put to bed, and we find out when Ines started spending more time on her appearance.

Ashley Burns has been helping me at With Leather for many months now. I found out that he runs a pageant magazine, which I think is the closest legal thing in this great nation of ours to pimping.

Jason Witten (Dallas Cowboys), Dan Levy (On The DL, Press Coverage)

February 4th, 2011

Episode 67, Part I.

Is Jason Witten the best tight end in the game right now? I ask him that, plus who he thinks belongs on that upper eschelon of elite NFL tight ends. I also ask him about the probability of a lockout in 2011, and whether or not he'd be willing to sit out an entire season. He has a site.

Dan Levy and I discuss his kid's bleeding penis and some of the storylines for the Super Bowl, including the media day and the weather. He also mentions his young son, and eventually Ben Roethlisberger is worked into a "To Catch A Predator" analogy. Dan does a podcast, also.

Ken Dilger (Indianapolis Colts, Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

January 28th, 2011

We talk to Ken Dilger, who played ten years in the NFL with the Colts and Bucs. Ken tells us what it's like to get ready for a Super Bowl, and what it was like to play with Peyton Manning.
