Week 2 vs. Dallas
Jamie and Matt react to a loss in the home opener in their usual calm, rational manner, asking not just IF coaches should be fired, but which ones and how soon it can happen. We do keep relatively on-topic this week, but also ask: Why has Jay Gruden declared war on Adrian Peterson? What is the point of Dean Blandino? Is this team even worth watching? And more, probably.

Preseason Wrap-Up
Jamie and Matt put a bow on this year's Redskins preseason. One of them is cancelling DirecTV and planning fall weekends out with his family while the other is as optimistic as he's been in eight years--and you may be surprised by which one is which! (I mean, you won't be now that we've put that thought in your head. But you would've been otherwise!)

Preseason Week 2 vs. Cincinnati
Jamie and Matt stay remarkably on topic for the first half of the episode, although the topic is unfortunately a dull-as-hell preseason football game. Then they go on for even longer about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (with spoilers), the value of good curation, and a bunch of other stuff. Then they talk about Colt McCoy and fantasy football.

Preseason Week 1, @ Cleveland
Jamie and Matt look at the first preseason game of 2019, wonder if maybe the starters should play more, continue Preseason HoF watch, admire Jimmy F’in Moreland, and move away from the Skins to discuss Quentin Tarantino, Euphoria, and the sad news about David Berman.

Game of Thrones Recap and Skins Draft Wrap-Up
Jamie and Matt do a perfunctory wrap-up on the (very good!) 2019 Skins draft, and then (at about 9:20) go full SPOILERS on Sunday night’s Game of Thrones, which Matt really, really didn’t like.
27:28
April 30, 2019
🚨🚨EMERGENCY DRAFT DAY 1 AND AVENGERS:ENDGAME AND GAME OF THRONES POD🚨🚨
Jamie and Matt must’ve taken their Ritalin today, as they actual stay more or less on-task, assuming that the task includes talking about Game of Thrones (including speculative SPOILERS) and Avengers: Endgame in addition to Washington’s surprisingly successful first round of the NFL Draft.

2019 NFL DRAFT EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!!!!!
Jamie and Matt provide their traditional level of deep football analysis on the upcoming NFL Draft, which is to say that they mostly seem aware that football players are a thing that exists.

Late, lackadaisical 🚨EMERGENCY🚨 Landon Collins / Bryce Harper pod

Week 17, 0-24 vs. Philadelphia
Like the end of Rogue One, Jamie and Matt attempt to extract a vague promise of hope out of this hallway massacre of a season. Like the end of the making of Rogue One, that hope proves to be pretty tenuous and based almost entirely on special effects and self-delusion.

Week 16, 16-25 @ Titans

December 24, 2018
Week 15, 16-13 @ Jacksonville
Matt is miserable about a 16-13 win, while Jamie still has joy in his heart and light in his eyes. It’s like a Hallmark Channel holiday movie, except that Matt stays grouchy right through till the very end.
46:55
December 17, 2018
Week 14, 16-40 vs. New York
Jamie and Matt yet again get a little punchy this week. Rather than breaking down the latest stupid game, they spend most of the time talking about who to fire, when to fire them, what former players should replace those people, and if anything will ever improve ever. It is more cheerful than all of that sounds.
26:11
December 10, 2018

42:59

35:29
November 14, 2018
Week 8, 20-13 @ New York

42:25

Week 7, 20-17 vs. Dallas
