Episode 9: I Am Not a Role Model

Charles Barkley has always been an ass. In this episode of Sports, Society and Spirits T.J. and Scott trash Chuck for taking cheap shots at Lebron James. We also talk about the Cavs problems, and how J.R. Smith is the key to solving everything, as the Cavs miss his perimeter defense. We also both predict the Falcons win the Superbowl. 

In the society portion of the show we discuss the Trump's immigration policy, and Carolyn Bryant admitting she lied about Emmet Till, which led to the murder of Till, then a 14 year old in 1955. We revisit events in our recent past and discuss how we tend to sanitize or ignore the deplorable occurrences of not only our distant, but relatively recent past. 

Episode 8: Aaron Rodgers is a Wizard

Aaron Rodgers is not human. No way, no how. When he is at his best no one in the game has played the quarterback position at the level he does. In this week's episode T.J. and Scott breakdown round 2 of the NFL playoffs, make some predictions for the conference title game, as well as discussing the end of UFC Legend B.J. Penn's career. We also hit a little bit on the Cavs Warriors matchup, which at the time of recording on Monday had not yet been played. Yes, I still think that game has more importance to fans than players. 

In the society portion of the show we discuss Trump's impending inauguration and his twitter feud with Georgia Representative John Lewis. 

Episode 3: Michigan Still Sucks

Yep, it is 2:30, December 5th, and Michigan still sucks, even with Harbaugh.  In this week's episode T.J. and I discuss the Ohio State/Michigan game, make predictions on the college football playoff, break down why the selection committee got it right. and remind everyone not to worry that Cavs are struggling in early December.  In the final part of the show we discuss the death of Fidel Castro, Obama's participation trophy worthy noncommittal statement and the truth that Castro was a tyrannical, oppressive who killed or exiled anyone who did not think the way he did.  

Sports, Society and Spirits - Episode 2: The Browns Still Suck in Trump's America

In episode two of Sports, Society and Spirits T.J. and Scott discuss the Ohio State Buckeyes' playoff chances including a breakdown of The Game upcoming against that unmentionable school up north Saturday. Episode two also touches on the abomination that is the Cleveland Browns as well as touching on the election of Donald Trump and what this does and does not say about the state of America's society.  Scott may or may not rant on Hadrian's Wall for just a few minutes longer than he should, blame T.J. for comparing America to Rome.
