This week, those crazy nerds in that smelly gym receptacle are doing things a little different. Bucking format, they spend the entirety of the main topic answering questions tweeted at them from the cheap seats…or Twitter I guess.
This week’s episode is so unconcerned with routine that Brian isn’t even here. He’s off covering the World Tetherball Championships while J.C., Elliott, and “Our Neighbor” Adam take over the proceedings. They answer your questions, they sort through the headlines, and they decide who in sports this week might be a cyborg. In addition, they take you through their predictions for the first few games of the college football season.
The guys do such a great job without Brian that he might just find himself experiencing the uncomfortable notion that he is completely unnecessary to the the success of the podcast even as he writes this sentence. Err, um, listen to the episode!
