Bonus Episode: Eulogy for Jontay Porter's Sophomore Year

Rooting for Mizzou sports is like having your heart ripped out of your chest, set on fire, urinated on, then shoved down your throat, ripped out of your stomach and finally cast into hell.


Bonus Episode: BAMA Ft. Alex Schiffer

Alex Schiffer joins me to talk about a heartbreaking loss to South Carolina, the upcoming bloodbath in Tuscaloosa, the commitment of Mario McKinney and Mizzou's pursuit of 5 star hooper Josh Christopher.

Former Mizzou linebacker Mike Scherer joins me to talk about the current Tigers football team as well as look back on his playing days on and off the field in Columbia. Brought to you by:


Episode 54 "Mizzou Football's biggest game & the 40 yard dash seen round the world"

Barry and the Boys head to Purdue for the biggest game of the season (2:35-15:35). I ran the greatest recreational 40 yard dash of all time in the face of all my haters (15:45-23:10). Lock of the Week #1 missed and the 2018 streak has begun! (23:15-28:55). The Cardinals are making a playoff push while doing a disservice to Adam Wainwright (29:05-39:10). Asking Schmidt featuring a Ringer vs. Barstool debate caps off this week's episode (39:15-53:25).


Episode 32 "I return to Mizzou and the Tigers return to Earth"

Mizzou basketball returns back to Earth after getting eviscerated in Utah (1:15-24:15). The Raiders are the lock of the week (25:00-28:00). I celebrate a glorious weekend in Columbia (28:00-37:00) and Asking Schmidt closes us out during which I predominantly talk about sucking at gambling (37:00-1:00:00).


Episode 31 "College Basketball Preview ft. Matt Cox"

COLLEGE BASKETBALL IS BACK! Matt Cox of the Three Man Weave Podcast joins me (3:20-50:45) to break down Mizzou and SLU's seasons, and whether or not Grayson Allen has ruined "Everytime We Touch" for generations to come. In Sharps, I randomly & blindly select the Dolphins +9 as my lock of the week. In Asking Schmidt I receive and all time voicemail from Jay Blossom and give him an all time response (1:05:00-1:14:00)


Episode 30 "Best Fans in Baseball & top 6 Halloween candies"

Three decades of podcasting in the books. Two new segments helped kickstart another milestone episode for TSP. "Best Fan in Baseball" (3:20-14:10) breaks down the World Series and why it's hard for Cardinals fans to still care about baseball. "6 Columns" (14:20-21:40) ranks the top 6 Halloween candies and they are not up for debate. "Sharps" (21:50-31:40) discusses the anonymous bettor who made $10 million off the WS. Additionally the lock of the week is a GUARANTEED winner this week. In...


Episode 29 "I'm a terrible gambler & bad Snapchat habits"

This week's episode starts out with a combo TFTW and The Saviors (1:24-23:30). I suck at gambling in Sharps(23:32-26:30). Hilarious Beef of the Week, targeting bad Snapchat habits (26:40-34:12). Brand new segment highlighting some of Satan Kroenke's biggest haters (34:19-39:19). Asking Schmidt closes us out, with a voicemail left by (possibly)Jesus Christ (42:17). Bill Self is a coward.


Episode 28 "Mizzou vs kU Basketball is BACK! ft. Aaron Reiss"

THE RETURN OF THE BORDER WAR (KIND OF). In honor of Mizzou and kU playing each other again, Aaron Reiss of the Kansas City Star joins me to talk all things Mizzou hoops. I also talk about the legendary speech I gave at the Windler wedding over the weekend, and why being in the wedding party is simply the best.


Episode 27 "US misses the World Cup & the pitfalls of block parties"

Episode 27 features the inevitable pitfalls of a block party in TFTW. I try and talk about the state of soccer in the U.S. in Scorched Earth. Whether I did a good job of that or not is up to you. I also discuss the power struggle between the president and the NFL, and celebrate my first lock of the week hitting in Sharps.


Episode 26 "SEC > B1G & the offseason hype of Mizzou Basketball"

I'm back from my trip to East Lansing where the SEC once again established its dominance over the B1G. There are surprising developments going on in and around the Mizzou basketball program that I cover in The Saviors. In Sharps, I talk about coping with being on the receiving end of the biggest cover of the year, and the Seahawks are a lifesavings guarantee to beat the Rams this week. Asking Schmidt is an inferno so listen at your own risk.


Episode 25 "Flag protests & Rick Pitino's greatest scandal"

Episode 25 features a totally revamped format courtesy of executive producer Michael Weaver. I talk flag protests and ponder why people care so much. In a new segment called "Amateur Hour" I discuss Rick Pitino and the most widespread NCAA scandal of all time. Tales From The Weekend features a 24 year old asking for underwear for his birthday. I also talk comedy television shows, bad bets & how to recover, what the NCAA scandal means for Mizzou & potential recruits (see Ramey, Courtney) and...

I go Scorched Earth on Bill Plaschke and the double standard for Rams fans in LA vs. Rams fans in STL. Lastly, in Asking Schmidt I discuss a woman eviscerating my soul at the wedding this past...


Episode 23 "Koozies are in & the first TSP voicemail segment"

Tales from the Weekend, Satan and Friends, Sharps, and Barry and the Boys are the segments that lead into the first ever dual Asking Schmidt! Questions were split from Facebook and the Talking Schmidt voicemail box. And, the koozies are in! Enjoy one of my best pods yet.


Episode 22 "Little League World Series is stupid & The McDonald's hangover cure"

The Fight was dumb but entertaining, much like this season of Thrones. Both topics lead off this week's episode. In Tales From The Weekend I talk hangover cures #McDonaldsMethod. I FINALLY give the Little League World Series the Scorched Earth segment it deserves, and Ann Coulter provided the heat for this week's Furnace.


Episode 21 "Blues Eyes White Dragon in GoT & Summertime Chicago"

Late breaking, special edition episode 21. I break down the the impossibilities of Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 in a very random, rambling way. In Tales From The Weekend, Chicago is a very expensive and the Uber drivers are idiots. Very entertaining Asking Schmidt as usual.


Episode 20 "TSP reflection & MPJ vs. Marvin Bagley"

The milestone Episode 20 is finally here! I reflect back on my experiences in the podcast industry. I also briefly get on my soapbox in regards to Charlottesville. Segments include, Tales from the Weekend, TV Timeout, Sharps, The Furnace, and a comprehensive breakdown of MPJ vs. Marvin Bagley.


Episode 19 "Bachelorette Finale & Greatest GoT episode"

New segment "TV Timeout" is introduced where I discuss the Bachelorette finale along with an all time great GoT episode. Jontay Porter's trolling of Mizzou's fanbase is covered in The Saviors. Additional segments include Beef of the Week, The Furnace, Charred Earth (as opposed to Scorched Earth) and Asking Schmidt.

This week's episode talks Thrones, bar fights, the constant daily struggle of men trying to say hello to one another, how it's STL vs. everyone when it comes to Imo's and the greatest SLUH athletic class of all time.


Episode 17 "Mizzou football aka Barry and the Boys"

I fought off yet another illness to produce a quality podcast. Segments include Voldemort and Friends, Beef of The Week, The Furnace, and my brand new Mizzou football segment, Barry and the Boys.
