Sports & Recreation Podcasts >

The Touchdowners Podcast" aims to provide a sports casual (focusing mainly on the NFL) podcast that is both philosophical and humors. We offer a prospective that differs from the typical talking heads by digging into the "Why" of current sports-takes instead of the "What". Topics are explored in their larger social contexts outside of the sports that contain them with undercurrents of religion and socialism mixed in. Episodes are broken into 4 segments with 2 segments being lighthearted, humors, and relateable while the other 2 segments cover weekly news in the NFL or other sports. Topics have ranged from Colin Kaepernick, Derek Carr, Houston Nutt, and the NFL Draft to Spirit Animals, Splinters, and Artificial Intelligence. Host, Philip Dean, has had experience with sports (specifically football) playing high school, collegiate, and semi-professional football. Philip currently work as an Athletic Director and Football/Track coach at a rural Missouri school. Philip also has a Master's Degree in Athletic Administration. Co-host, Tyler Swezey, has worked for the NFL's "Red Zone" and currently edits for Magical Elves Productions on various reality television shows. Tyler has a degree in Sports Broadcasting. Each host provides a unique regional prospective with one being located in the middle of rural Missouri while the other has been based in Los Angles the last 7 years. The hosts' 14 year best friends relationship adds to the dialogue as we like to take jabs at one another while respecting each other's reasoning.
