December 19, 2018

Episode 60 - Colton and the Cubs Are Dead
If you like high-energy, positive podcasts, this is not the episode for you. If you enjoy the sadness in other people's lives and the depression that follows a blown season, THEN YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. We record literally minutes after the final out of the Cubs' Wild Card loss to the Rockies and Colton couldn't be more down in the dumps. We try and talk other things too but Colton is depressed the whole episode because the Cubs blew a great season and didn't give a glimmer of hope for fans after the 162nd game. We then bring up the Ryder Cup to make Colton even more sad. Seriously. So, so sad.

Episode 56 - The Best WNBA Semifinals Coverage on the Internet
This isn't really one of our bet ones so if you just want to play it a few minutes, then download it, delete it, and then redownload it, I would understand. We talk sports and then nothing really after that. It's bad. But thank you for listening. I love you.
August 29, 2018

We don't even talk about Rockford Day (815 Day), but whatever, I want to name the episode that, OKAY?! We talk about the scientific fact that Tiger Woods is back, some SPICY MLB talk, HOT NBA chatter and DOPE NFL news. To be honest, I just tired and don't want to type too much more about this episode. Its awesome and hilarious. So just fricken listen to it. FRICK.
August 15, 2018
Episode 53 - Featuring Special Guest: Drunk Jake
Welcome to our very first "Improv Episode". We didn't do any preparation for this one so it is a dooozy. Drunk Jake joins the show for some awesome insight.

August 8, 2018

July 11, 2018
Episode 48 - I Dropped the Ball On This One
Okay everyone, so here is what happened. After we recorded this episode the night of July 3rd, I went out to the bars to celebrate this great nation's Independence. I may have had a few drinks and forgot to post the episode when I got back. After that, I did not have a need to look at my computer until Saturday and here we are, now realizing that the episode has yet to be posted. That one is on me, hand up. It takes a real man to realize that and admit to the internet. So after all of this, we just realized that I am a true hero and somebody that people should idolize. I honestly don't even think that is too much to say. It just one humble and handsome man's opinion/as close to a scientific fact that you can get. "Don't be bitter, be better." -Jim Harbaugh. So here you go. We talk Lebron and basketball and some other sports and some other stuff. It's pretty dope.

Episode 45 - Green Bay Packers Defensive Lineman Dean Lowry
It took us 45 episodes to finally get the big man himself, Rockford's very own (and Green Bay Packer) Dean Lowry. Such a great interview that it set Colton's apartment building on fire. Other than that interview, we still bring the heat. This is the first episode that the three men (not boys) are physically together recording and I must say that this coul be our best episode yet.
May 16, 2018
