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.

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.

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?"

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.

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.
