9/27/2018

Oh look! It's only football's version of the Joe Rogan Experience but without the Joe Rogan experience. Dangerous ideas explored but with very little hard-hitting interviewing along the way. This week, Jon and Nico are joined by a third Moron, Jamie Hamilton, who comes to us as an emissary of aforementioned Rogan - Joe - to offer something of a defence. During the course of the discussion, we talk: * Jon defends Flat Earthers as 'more scientific in some sense' than the rest of us. * We...
