Episode 295 – Laughs, Legends, and Late Trades: Unpacking Fame, Strategy, and Survival with the Mariners

RUNDOWN

 

Achoo! How can sudden fame affect you? Don’t ask Richard Pryor’s clean comedy for any Hawk Tuah. Mitch and Hotshot discuss clean comedy, sneezing, and fame without spitting on any “thang.” But on to more serious topics, like “Mumford Physical Education Department.” And of course, let’s discuss the Mariners’ strategy approaching the MLB trade deadline (what’s Jerry DiPoto doing?).

Continuing the deep dive into the Seattle Mariners, approaching MLB All-Star Week, Mitch chats with Danny O’Neil, Seattle writer and talk show host. More Mariners talk continues with Joe Doyle and Brady Farkas, as the Mariners show signs of struggle.

And a little morning inspo in that cup of joe, Mitch invites you to listen to a powerful segment from an archived show, chatting with a POW survivor of 2,103 days in an 8×8 cell, US Navy Captain Charlie Plumb.

Heading over to the other stuff segment; WNBA “herstory” triple-double, MLB history, Julia Roberts, Swifties, and a few things we’re better off not writing down…

Episode 294 – Can You Say Social Faux Pas?

RUNDOWN

 

Let’s discuss everyday irritations and social faux pas (the ups and downs of broader societal issues). Also, did you hear about the coach that apologized to the reporter? And the one where Kelly Stafford gets candid about a prior hookup? All this before we chat about the Mariner’s rapid decline, shrinking their lead.

In the first of three interviews, a fan favorite, John Bracken, tells about his random two-day golf outing with Michael Jordan between games 2 and 3 of the ’96 NBA Finals! Mariners No-Table says au revoir to Churchill as the Mariners wave goodbye to a 10-game lead. In the last of three interviews, Kevin Pelton joins Mitch to discuss the whispers surrounding the NBA expansion to Seattle. 

If all that wasn’t enough, the Other Stuff Segment covers everything from notable father-son duos to NBA draft controversies. We’ll toss in a few career downfalls along the way.
