Episode 29 – We’re Back!!

Play

On July 12, 2011, we recorded an episode that would have been Episode 29, but we're not going to release it. In addition to being plagued by equipment malfunctions, we just weren't having a good night in the studio.

So, we now present the official Episode 29, recorded five months later, on December 5, 2011. We kept referring to this as the first episode of Season 2, but to keep with what seems to be a standard for podcasting, we're foregoing the seasonal naming and making this the official Episode 29.

In this episode

  • Matthew Barnaby (ESPN / Buffalo Sabres) arrested again
  • Texts from Bennett
  • Mac Lethal - "Look at Me Now"
  • Kanye & Jay Z - "Watch the Throne"
  • Drake - "Take Care"
  • Mac Miller - "Blue Slide Park"
