62. Herschel Walker (ClinchGear)

December 18th, 2010

Josh talks with 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and 12-year NFL vet Herschel Walker, who won his first career MMA fight in January. Herschel was made available to us by ClinchGear, who makes performance gear and apparel for MMA.

Phil Raintree's Old Timey NFL Spotlight Games for Week 15.

Runs 31 minutes (unedited).

61. Dan Levy (On The DL)

December 15th, 2010

It's an ass-backwards show. We do The Wonderlic and then interview Dan Levy. Then, 43 minutes into the show, we open the show and do news. Phil Raintree performs an encore of last week's picks.

59. Jeff Metzger (The Rogue’s Handbook), The Wonderlic

December 9th, 2010

Josh, Phil and Aaron start the show with a quick rant about tanking in fantasy football, as inspired by this Dan Levy piece. Josh interviews Jeff Metzger, author of The Rogue's Handbook: A Concise Guide to Conduct for the Aspiring Gentleman Rogue. and yes, rape is mentioned. Aaron reads the news, and the show's new NFL trivia segment, "The Wonderlic," debuts...poorly.

Aaron reads the news while Phil sends Josh a disguised link to Meatspin (don't Google that). Josh wonders what happened to Alec Baldwin and Phil delivers the Old Timey Picks, and the last 5 minutes of the show are almost completely inaudible since Josh had the music up too damn loud. Apologies. That's what happens when you take three weeks off.

Recorded December 8, 2010 with Josh Zerkle, Aaron Merrill and Phil Raintree. Runs 64 minutes.

Prizes for "The Wonderlic" were provided by

  • P&G, in association with Take It To The House and the Blogger Fantasy League.
  • Sourcebooks.
  • Recorded December 8, 2010 with Josh Zerkle, Aaron Merrill and Phil Raintree. Runs 64 minutes.

    58. Hugh Murray (Hammer Fisted), Andrea Hangst (F*Ball.tumblr)

    November 18th, 2010

    Did you ever have a project on your computer that was almost finished, only to be suddenly deleted without a trace? That's what I wish would have happened with this show. Don't get me wrong, we did well with a "skeleton crew;" Hugh Murray (@TheLogic) does a bang-up job of reading the news to us, and Andrea Hangst (@OhAndrea) was a delightful guest, but this episode was riddled with tech issues to the point that we actually had to scrap our NFL trivia segment, along with a shit-ton of dead air, leaving us with a paltry 39 minutes of "content." We did manage to save the favorite Phil Raintree (@PhilRaintree) segment of most listeners. As they say in the Navy, "Women, children and Old Timey Picks first!"
