The Podcass 025: Relaunching from quarantine! With proper social distancing!

We’re back! This is not a hoax. Not a drill. And not a case of deciding to do a podcast with unexpected free time in COVID-19 quarantine.

After an ashamedly long hiatus, we recount the past four or five weeks (2:03), look at how closely the coronavirus crisis has hit (14:15), and dissect baseball’s completely wacked plan for playing a season (27:33). Thank you for checking back in to listen!

The Podcass 019: Movie tickets rant, Springsteen Cowboy, Astros awaken

The Podcass 018: Mini-Pod! Brady, Harbaugh, Cam, NFL Week 8

The week got away from us, schedule-wise, so it’s kind of a mini-Podcass and posting a day later than intended.

We’re all sports this time around with our NFL segment from WISE Sports Radio (06:45). We discuss the possibility that this is Tom Brady’s last season, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh shooting down speculation that he’ll return to the NFL, whether or not the Carolina Panthers could trade Cam Newton, and other Week 8 storylines to watch.

The Podcass 017: Zombieland 2 and a baseball triple tap

More sports than expected on the latest Podcass with Canadian friends and cancellations creating more time to talk baseball in anticipation of the World Series beginning.

But we do break up the baseball talk with zombies, more specifically a review of Zombieland: Double Tap (11:31). I feel like I’ve often been a zombie during October staying up late to watch these games, then getting up early to work (and working out before that). As mentioned, we preview the World Series with Edmonton’s TSN 1260 (03:21) and Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio (18:58). Then we close out with a chat on Baseball America’s report of a proposal to eliminate 42 minor league teams (28:00).

The Podcass 016: Double Will Smith, NFL Week 7, and the Nats!

We’ve been sports-heavy on The Podcass this week. Hey, October is packed with playoff baseball, college football and NFL, along with the beginnings of the NHL and NBA seasons. So I guess that’s reflected here.

But we break up that sports talk with a review of Will Smith’s double-take in Gemini Man (23:38). And it’s a week with two segments from WISE Sports Radio on our Friday show. First, we preview the big storylines going into Week 7 on the NFL schedule, including Jalen Ramsey getting traded to the Los Angeles Rams (04:37). Then, we close out with baseball talk, focusing on the amazing, improbable run of the Washington Nationals and the Yankees-Astros ALCS (33:59).
