    I dont consume any ringer content except for the prestige tv pod.

    Im not too proud to admit my friends and I were big fall out boy fans back in the day. There's a ringer pod debating My Chemical Romance v Fallout boy that my friend sent in the group chat Listening now.

    IDK who Charles Holmes is, but he is hilarious. Big fan.

    No interviews, respect my decision

    I just finished. Great pod. Love those three together.

    120 mark with Slow Ride was fantastic. Rewound it a few times.

    MCR no question, but Fall Out Boy has some bangers. Both bands hold up imo

    Bob Ryan talking about centers like Embiid wouldn’t put one of those guys in hell was hilarious to me.

    I forget who he was taking about (maybe Havlicheck) but was discussing one on one vs Kobe and he said Kobe because the other player was more of a team player instead of one on one.

    This would be a cool historical pov for some kind of media form.

    You could probably make a damn good comedy sketch of Bob Ryan hanging out with Harden till last call at a strip club :pffft:

    After Larry hurt his back tarring his own driveway — by the way something you kids would Never (capital N, italicized) do today — he had to give up lap dances.

    it's weird how out of the "nfl media" circuit bill barnwell seems despite being the most established espn guy. anyone else feel like his pod is pretty irrelevant?

    he's been doing just one show a week all offseason but i figured things would change as the season drew closer. and he's seemingly last to talk about the hot media topics (mike sando and qb tiers, the LAR writer and stafford's arm, etc.)

    maybe he's more focused on just the nfl season and game recaps but i have been surprised at how little he's done this summer

    Granted I've had very limited exposure to him, but I would consider the possibility that he appears to have the personality of a toad.

    also Bill after a guy scores a 2 yard touchdown:

    my question about barnwell wasn't an endorsement of him but more an inquiry as to why he's so inactive relative to his peers at other companies

    barnwell once proposed a herbert + derwin james + rashawn slater for trevor lawrence + 3rd round pick trade. i don't think he's very intelligent.

    I think it was when he was working for Grantland, he was living in a condo on the strip and the word was a hooker robbed his ass including some slips for some big futures bets he had made
