The prodigal host, our sweet baby boy Josh, returns to the podcast. Immediately, things get weird. Alex Jones impressions are performed, wrestling is discussed, and dick sensations are ranked. We apologize profusely.
This week, the boys are joined by a very special guest: host of Mocking Bird Network's The Gallery and Daniel's fiancee, Claudia Osorio. We talk about her learning to tolerate baseball, Madison Bumgarner's dirtbike misadventures, and play a game where she has to decide if something happened in a baseball movie or in a real baseball game.
This week, Daniel and Ben take it upon themselves to invent a proper minor league team for the Houston area, and stumble upon maybe their best idea yet. Plus, they catch you up on the most important events from the week in baseball, including a condom on the field and crying Rangers fans! Come for the baseball talk, stay for the Dr. Who discussion.
Baseball's back! And we're back! What a glorious day. But alas, only half of the regular crew is back, as Josh has headed back to school. But he is being ably filled in for by one of our favorite guests, Ben Hebert. Join us as we catch you up on the happenings in the World Baseball Classic, welcome baseball back for a new season, and make predictions that are either stupid or wrong.
The boys are joined a final time by the illustrious comedy mind of Kathryn Way as Josh takes his turn to walk everyone through the story behind the notorious incident between Roger Clemons and Mike Piazza in the 2000 World Series between the New York Mets and Yankees.
Seriously. There's karate.
Kathryn Way joins us again as Daniel tells us about the Hog Calling Pitcher, Clyde "Pea Ridge" Day. It's the story of one of the greatest oddball characters of early baseball history.
Kathryn way joins us to discuss her life in baseball and bombs are dropped! We also take some pretty significant diversions from, you know, baseball. Hope you enjooy!
Daniel shares the story of King Kelly, one of the first star players in baseball history. They say half the rulebook was written to keep him from finding loopholes. He was a vaudeville star. A song about him was the first hit recording in American history. We talk a lot of things. It's fun.
Daniel and Josh are joined by Ben Hebert once again as Josh regails the gang with the tale of woe centered on the man known as JR Richard. Sad Astros story, everyone, let's laugh about it!
Dateline: Cleveland, Ohio. City of the Eternally Burning River, they call it. Some point in the '70s I think, already forgot. The most legendary baseball fight/ riot in history.
Improviser/Astros obsessive Ben Hebert joins us to share the story, Let's grab some bats and get in there!
The boys take you on a magical tour of the two franchises vying for the worldest of series outside of the World Baseball Classic. Bring it! Sports!
The boys are back in Thin Lizzy for another round of baseball discussion in Throwing Junk. This week, we talk about Cleveland's injury woes and how to best injure yourself with a remote-controlled quadcopter. We also get back into the long series of indescresions made by Curt Schilling. Come widdit now.
Daniel's taken off his shoes and one of his socks...actually I think he's crying. A large amount of this episode is wasted on Josh trying to keep all sharp objects away from Daniel after the Giants' historic 9th-inning collapse to end their season. They also cover who is left in the playoffs and try to predict who will be headed to the Fall Classic.
HE IS NOT, AND WILL NEVER BE, BIG PAPI.
This week, we say goodbye to the 2016 Astros, and provide some hope for the future. Later, we walk you through the teams that remain and help you determine which one you should root for in the playoffs!
It's our first ever live episode! We take a trip through Dock Ellis' life with comedians Brenda Valdivia and Antoine Culbreath, live from Houston's premier Astrodome namesake brewery: 8th Wonder!
The boys talk about Tebow, obviously. They also get into it about rock n' roll legend Chris Gaines, fake mustaches in baseball, Josh antagonizes Daniel, and they do cool stuff together. It's a baseball podcast and you like baseball.
Daniel and Josh get into it over Japanese hologram robot voice pop stars, illness, Astros selling Cubs hats, and Adam "not Pacman" Jones' comments about racism and baseball. Then, in honor of the start of football season, we cap it off with an interview with football commentator and former Oilers linebacker (wink wink) Dwight Biddle. It's a fun one!
Hello! How was your Labor Day Weekend? That's good! Oh, how was ours? NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
Anyway, we're back from a quick break with perhaps our most exciting episode yet! We've got the hilarious and lovely hosts of Relationshit, Hoja Lopez and Stacey Daniels. It's a Mocking Bird Network crossover! Enjoy our discussion of baseball players, their messy, complicated relationships, and how they can sometimes resemble our own.
The boys talk about their favorite Gene Wilder moments, talk about a near no-no, and then provide a service to the good people of Carolina in naming their brand-new minor league franchises.
Ever wonder why Tony LaRussa is the worst? Ever wonder which major league teams correspond to which American politicians? Of course you did. Daniel and Josh are here to teach you. Just absorb us.
