Episode #37: Ross Geller Is Terrible At Relationships
I hate fantasy football. I lost 5 players to injury in Week 4 and I have 4 players with byes this week. I should have taken that year off. And Derek Carr and the Raiders got hit with some cheese that could doom one of our last seasons in Oakland. After I cry for a little bit, I revisit my time back at U92 for their 35th anniversary. I take some time to memorialize Tom Petty and break down the good and bad of Hugh Hefner’s 91 years. I accidentally think I caught my neighbors going at it in...
Episode #36: Terminated
Back from a solo hiatus, THE WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST touches down with great authority. Wasting no time, I announced the formation of the Hyphen Podcast Group, a new Morgantown, WV based podcast collective. From there, I deal with all of ESPN’s problems this summer including their most recent issues with how they’ve dealt with Jemele Hill sounding off on Donald. I get into a little WWE action as I go back and forth about whether becoming a cord cutter was worth it, all while previewing...
Episode #35: Bobby Shmurda Anybody Ya Heard Of (Costarring Marcus “ShowinmadLov” Robinson)
In an episode that had to happen, THE WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST tackles what has now come to be known as 4:44, Jay-Z’s latest album. Joining me for the ride once again is Marcus “ShowinmadLov” Robinson as we break down the road Jay took to get to this album and pretty much review it track-by-track. Is it a classic on the level of Reasonable Doubt and The Blueprint? Or did Hov throw Tidal fueled bricks a la Kingdom Come? I also offer a very special apology to someone who I've trashed pretty...
Episode #31: Podcasting 101
Just like Reggie Miller admitted he pushed off of Michael Jordan in the 1998 Eastern Conference Finals, THE WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST is full of uncalled fouls. Not really, but I do spend most of the episode detailing how I got into podcasting and the behind the scenes of the show. Then I talk a little sports before I give a verdict in the MJ v Prince argument. And I explain why this year's Royal Rumble was better than what most people thought. Outta nowhere like a RKO.
Episode #30: The Questions
Bernard King. Steph Curry. Nolan Ryan when he played for the Angels. Hyphen Nation, THE WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, has reached it’s 30th episode. As promised, welcome to the first ever Q&A show, where I answer all the questions. A lot of wrestling questions but still, all the questions. Question MVPs go to Marcus, Errick, and Mike. We'll do it again real soon, I had a lot of fun with this one.
Episode #17: Make Me Wanna Holler
“Crime is increasing Trigger happy policing Panic is spreading God knows where we're heading” - Marvin Gaye & James Nix Episode #17: Make Me Wanna Holler
Episode #11: Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler (Costarring Errick Greenlee)
I start the episode by myself, where I try to compare Shawn Michaels and Kanye West. Then I called Errick Greenlee on Skype, where we had a short conversation about our daughters and families off podcast, then we get down to business. But what I thought would be more fantasy booking turned into an all out discussion of Captain America: Civil War, which we both saw on its opening weekend. This episode's cover image is brought to you via Errick's favorite Captain America speech, (which he...
Episode #9: Knock On Wood
On a very special day, Hyphen Nation 9 is born into existence! Today’s topics include the 2nd birthday of my daughter Aaliyah (that’s the special day, take that smokers), my experiences as a “single” dad, why I’ve been so lazy creatively lately, the tough decision between my Android and becoming one of those iPhone users, and an update about those lifestyle changes I keep saying I’m going to make (the elephant scale at the Smithsonian Zoo wasn’t impressed). Plus: I predict the 2016 NBA...
Episode #7: Welcome To The Disney Movie Review Podcast
You take one day off and life gets in the way. So what do you do? You wait until the next opportunity presents itself and you keep the podcast train on the tracks! Enclosed within these audio walls, I question whether I'm a bad husband, I talk about Aladdin and the Little Mermaid and my differing opinions on both (Welcome to the Disney movie review podcast!), this episode's cover girl Ronda Rousey's confession to considering suicide after she lost to Holly Holm, and getting better at...
Episode #6: The Case of the Stale Fudge Rounds & Cherry Pop-Tarts
So with the professional footballs officially put away for another season, it's time for Hyphen Nation to blossom into its final and best form! Or something like that. Contained within these audio walls, I discuss why the day after the Super Bowl should be some kind of national holiday, I compare my experiences with the OJ Simpson trial as a child with what I know today, the story of gas station snacks that spawned this episode's title, my eternal struggle with never being able to catch up...
Episode #3: Predicting The 2015 NFL Playoffs: Championship Round
We’re down to the final four teams in the hunt for Super Bowl 50 and I recap what happened in the Divisional Round (I went 4-0, making me 5-3 this postseason) and pick the two teams that’ll be headed to San Francisco in February. I also spend a lot of time getting distracted by all the people flying into the Kroger parking lot in search of bread and milk in preparation for Winter Storm Jonas. Considering this was the second time I recorded this episode after a headphone/microphone jack...
Episode #2: Predicting The 2015 NFL Playoffs: Divisional Round
The NFL Playoffs are rolling along and so is Hyphen Nation! I went 1-3 during the opening round, and it's not looking much better for this weekend as I picked all the home teams. I doubt I start the Championship Round at 5-3 but crazier miracles could happen. I also spend some time talking about other things besides sportball, so I encourage non sports fans to check out this episode as well. There's lot of updates on my current projects and the future plans for the show and my latest plan...
