Sports-heavy on The Podcass this week! But first, 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).
Some near-instant response to the Detroit Lions’ 23-22 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football (0:32). Then, our WISE Sports Radio baseball segment covers big wins by the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals in the MLB playoffs over the weekend (16:21). Did you miss those amid all the football action?
First, grievances fuel motivation at the gym (01:29). From WISE Sports Radio, we cover the playoff collapses of the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Philadelphia Phillies firing manager Gabe Kapler. On the football side, we dig into the disastrous Washington Redskins and their dismissal of coach Jay Gruden, along with other NFL Week 6 storylines (07:33). And finally some TV talk on Fox’s Prodigal Son and ABC’s Emergence (31:32).
More Joker talk (01:10), followed by some baseball talk from WISE Sports Radio (11:42), including the Chicago Cubs’ managerial search. Then the show wraps up with thoughts on what’s happened to Sports Illustrated (25:20).
Joker is the big movie release of the weekend and drawing a lot of buzz, so we have a review for you (2:11). Then baseball and football radio segments from WISE Sports Radio. Up first is a preview of the 2019 MLB postseason (15:05), followed by a look at Week 5 in the NFL (27:33).
We get a little geeky, talking about Sony and Marvel realizing they’re better together with Spider-Man (03:06). Then, how about those Detroit Lions, hanging with the Kansas City Chiefs and almost beating them (07:45)? We also review Renee Zellweger in Judy (13:44) before jumping into my radio segments. I appeared on Edmonton’s TSN 1260 to preview the MLB postseason (18:27) and dug into the Cubs-Joe Maddon split and the Angels firing manager Brad Ausmus on Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio (26:36).
Catching up on some movies, we review Ad Astra (01:51) and Rambo: Last Blood (29:07). In between is my WISE Sports Radio NFL segment (10:24) and a couple of corrections from the last episode (37:06).
We break out of “podfade,” recapping our summer absence (3:31), the shutdown of the Amusement Park Podcast (6:55), and a brief fling with an NFL writing gig (15:25). Also, my radio baseball segment (21:00), catching up on what we would’ve talked about over the past four months (30:32), and a handful of sad goodbyes (32:40). Thank you for listening!
No, this is not a glitch. The Podcass is back! First, some baseball, including what’s going on with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals (7:12). Then we hit the NFL, particularly the current mishegas with the Jaguars’ Jalen Ramsey and Patriots’ Antonio Brown going into Week 3 (19:05). Hopefully, we’re back on track and will have a full regular episode next week. Thanks for sticking with us!
Cleaning up on topics from the previous week including Avengers: Endgame and its many endings for beloved characters (04:58), Def Leppard’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and redemption (18:19), the Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera blaming others for his lack of home runs (25:19), and the passing of the legend inside the Chewbacca suit, Peter Mayhew (01:55).
