Jewel Osco Live Show With Big Cat

The Red Line crew pulls off the improbable upset of selling out a bar at a Jewel Osco in honor of the single most premium Spirit brand on the planet, New Amsterdam Vodka. This is the full audio from the night's event, which we're turning over to you as a random bonus episode that was recorded, edited and produced from the bottom of our collective hearts. There's nothing related to Barstool Chicago that doesn't get covered in the live show including how Big Cat started the site, why Eddie...


Bears Defense Mauls Rams + Hot Stove's Warming Up?

This week on Red Line Radio the boys absolutely lose their shit over how awesome the Bears defense is. Whitesoxdave leads the charge on what he's hearing the White Sox are doing at the Winter Meetings. Listen to all of this as well as Cubs hot stove, the debacle on Madison street, and more


Peanut Tillman + Shams Charania

***Live Show w/ Big Cat this Thursday 12/6 7pm @ the Jewel Osco on Clark & Division in Old Town*** The Red Line crew is back in action after the Bears dropped a heart breaker to the G Men.

Thanksgiving Hangover + Olin Kreutz

***Live Show Next Thursday 12/6 7pm @ Clark & Division Jewel Osco*** The Red Line crew is joined by Chicago legend and former All Pro center, Olin Kreutz. He is a certified bad ass in every respect and an awesome interview to go behind the 2000's Bears while learning a shit load about the NFL in the process. Around the Kreutz interview, the crew breaks down all their 1st Place Bears excitement, Hawks trade, baseball offseason updates, etc. There's a grab bag, some butchered segments, lost...


Eddie Olcyzk Part 1 + Bears Roll + Behind The Scenes Of Dente Pizza Reviews

The Red Line crew is proud to present it's first Beefsgiving, a new holiday recognizing a beef sandwich meal before recording your Thanksgiving podcast in Chicago. Or something like that. Anyways we got some amazing behind the scenes stories from Eddie and WSD about their 4-hour beef/pizza/hot dog excursion this past Friday night in Chicago. Spoiler Alert: Eddie hates spoilers and Dave was full of them Friday. It's an argument/rant from Eddie for the ages. Next up is first place Bears talk...


Bears Destroy Lions + New Coach, Same Hawks + Guest Ryan Spaeder

The Red Line crew is absolutely FIRED UP about the Bears dominating performance against the Lions. Mitch looked awesome, Nagy is settling in, receivers are wide open, Khalil Mack murdered several people in a single play, and on and on and on it goes. The Bears are ROLLING and Red Line Radio is along for the ride. In the process Eddie explains why no matter how bad Cody Parkey kicks, he's not going anywhere anytime soon. Chief gives a phenomenal update on Jeremy Colliton's debut on the Hawks...


Remembering Joel Quenneville With 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Brent Sopel

Not much else to say here. November 6, 2018 will go down in Blackhawks history for all the wrong reasons. Brent Sopel joins Chief and Carl to talk about what made playing for Q so different, why he was the best, always will be the best and got nothing but a good old fashioned fuck job on his way out of town. But like all good rememberances, we're not here to grieve. We're hear to celebrate. Sopes makes it so damn clear why Stan Bowman is a dead man walking, figuratively. Obviously.


Bears Win + Hawks Can't Win + Machado To Chicago?

Episode 76 is as loaded as your Uncle at an Old Country Buffet baked potato bar. Spoiler Alert: very loaded. The Red Line crew spent some time in Evanston this past weekend watching Notre Dame continue its march to a perfect season against the Northwestern Wildcats and who would have guessed it Northwestern lost. Dave and Chief recount the game and tailgating at Northwestern. "Not Bad," says Chief, disappointedly. Elsewhere, Eddie is back from his week at the spa to explain why the Bears...


Scottie Puppen + Bears Win

The Red Line Boyz are back in action after watching the Bears dismantle the New York Jets. Eddie got laid up in the hospital after some bad car wash beef but is still able to come off IR for solid Bears talk as always. Carl's new dog, Scottie Puppen, is introduced (not really) as the official mascot of Red Line Radio, the first true mascot in Barstool Sports history, allegedly. Later, Chief and Dave go inside and out on Northwestern/ND this weekend with some piping hot takes and lots of...


Brian Urlacher

The biggest episode in the history of Red Line Radio featuring the boys' collective childhood hero, Brian Urlacher. #54 joins the boys to talk retired life, getting juked by Tom Brady, winning without a quarterback and everything else the Red Line guys could throw at him. As always, Urlacher does not disappoint. Around the interview, the boys give their Bears/Patriots reactions lead by Eddie's staunch belief that the Bears are trending up. Also, Chief explains why the Hawks are back but far...


Big Cat + Bears Disgust

Big Cat joins the Red Line boyz to breakdown the most disappointing loss Chicago Bears fans have suffered since week 1 of this year. Not a long time, but still remarkably soul crushing. We have first place expectations, and we will honor those expectations regardless of their validity. Eddie and Big Cat assign blame, talk through their issues and help us move on to New England because God knows the Bears need everyone's help. Big Cat also helps the boys get through some Bulls expectations...


Thomas Jones + Bears Bye Week + Hawks Are Back + Cubs Are Not

The boys are back after a well deserved bye week and holy shit does Carl need it coming off the Cubs collapse. Before he explodes, the boys prepare you for your 1st Place Chicago Bears week 6 game against the overwhelmingly mediocre Miami Dolphins. Eddie has PTSD from the last time they came to town but is still confident this is a Bears beatdown and for good reason. White Sox Dave tries to jynx the season unintentionally but not really because he is a troll. And after done trolling the...

Six Touchdown Passes. Six.

The Redline Radio boys are STRUGGLING after Carl's wedding weekend. It's an All Gas No Brakes Podcast, but they are running on fumes. RLR pulls back the curtain and unveils a new segment called "White Sox Daze" to let the listeners in on all the eyeroll inducing instances that occur when you're working with White Sox Dave. The ONLY thing giving them life this week was that Monster of the Midway Defense and Mitch Trubisky showing signs of life. Eddie is bringing the noise, the energy, and the...


ESPN 1000's Silvy + 1st Place Bears

The Bears are alone in first place and the boys are here to rub the world's best defense in your face. Never mind the quarterback problems, this is Chicago Bears football of course the quarterback is the only question mark. Fortunately Eddie is here to be your spiritual guide as you manage your Mitch Trubisky expectations. On the north side of town, the Cubs are still in first place. Silvy from ESPN 1000 joins the boys to talk October expectations while Carl predicts a 16-inch softball style...


Red Line Radio Episode 3 - All Gas No Brakes: Bears 15-1?

The Red Line boyz have a little extra bounce in their step this week after watching the Bears DISMANTLE Russell Wilson and the once great Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. The Bears defense is back to its rightful Bad Boy status while Mitchy Dual Threat Trubisky proves all the Patrick Mahaolmes Enthusiasts that a Win is a Win is A Win. Eddie and Chief take you through all the Bears highlights before letting Carl and Dave drag their baseball ballz all over the Cubs playoff talk....


Red Line Radio Episode 2: Was It Over When The Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor?

The boyz are here to face the music in the wake of getting tea bagged by Aaron Rodgers on national television. There's no time for crying though because Chicago is in the middle of a Super Bowl run (last time the Bears went 15-1? 1985) and soon to be a deep October run. Or something like that. White Sox Dave has PTSD following the Michael Kopech Tommy John surgery announcement, which is better than how Eddie is faring after Coach Nagy's disappearance in Sunday night's second half. Chief does...
