The Philly Frenetics Podcast

By Joe Greenwich and John Saeger
The Philly Frenetics Podcast is Philadelphia's hottest new sports podcast. Well, Philadelphia's newest sports podcast, at least.

Hosts Joe Greenwich and John Saeger dive head first into the latest Eagles, Flyers, Phillies, 76ers, and Union news each week, mixing insight with a dash of irrationality – as is the Philadelphia way – and a strong sense of humor, because in this sports town, it's the only way to survive.

The pair will also share their thoughts on the general sports news of the week in addition to sharing their experiences as life-long Philadelphia sports fans with their listeners.

The Gang Talks About Your Philadelphia Union
The local professional soccer team has made it impossible to ignore its success, so Joe gets to hold court for an entire segment to wax poetic about the Union advancing to the MLS Eastern Conference Final (9:40).  Speaking of holding court, Joe shares his experience after being summoned for jury duty this week, and of course, the guys put the Eagles on trial for impersonating a football team on Sunday at MetLife Stadium (33:09).  The verdict: guilty as charged.

Good Vibes Only (Frenetics' Version): Eagles, Union, and Bryce Harper
The Philly Frenetics are back and they're...happy? What's that all about? Well, the Eagles dominated the Saints thanks to Jalen Hurts, Darius Slay, and, dare we say, the coaching staff (4:54). Joe then makes a pair of bold predictions (20:03) before waxing poetic about Jakob Glesnes' match-winning goal in the Union's playoff victory over the weekend (25:16); John then does the waxing, this time about newly-crowned National League MVP Bryce Harper (40:24).

17. 12/08/20: The Phillies are Gonna Do What Now?
Jalen Hurts finally replaced Carson Wentz this week, and the Boo Birds have thoughts (6:24); the guys also go deeper on whether the 2020 season can be salvaged and what that even means at this point (12:30), the life and times of Carson Wentz (16:51), and the situations of Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman (24:25).  Then, John takes aim at the Phillies after they were rumored to be shopping Zack Wheeler amid an offseason of not actually doing anything (32:12) before the guys discuss the front office situation (40:42), guys who will be back (49:24), and guys who could – well, theoretically – be added (54:37).

16. 12/01/20: The Best Philadelphia Sports Movies
The Eagles didn't play until Monday night, which means the guys avoided Eagles talk on this week's episode.  Instead, the guys (mostly Joe) take the NFL to task for its handling of recent COVID-19 cases in Baltimore and Denver (9:59) before they (entirely Joe) go after MLS for its handling of its postseason bracket (16:30) and segue into a brief discussion of the Union's historic season (24:12).  Finally, John breaks down his list of the best Philadelphia sports movies that he wrote for The Philadelphia Globe (30:33).

15. 11/24/20: Union Playoff Preview with Matthew DeGeorge of the Delco Daily Times
In a packed show, the guys talk about the Sixers' recent transactions on the trade and free agency markets (7:33) before giving the Eagles' loss to the Browns much more attention than it deserves (18:52).  Then, a new feature is born as a listener tweet sparks a discussion about which Philadelphia coaches, past or present, the Boo Birds want to see throw hands (21:55).  Finally, Matthew DeGeorge of the Delaware County Daily Times calls in as the pod's first-ever guest and goes deep with the guys about the Philadelphia Union's quest for the MLS Cup title, which begins Tuesday night in Chester (31:00).

14. 11/18/20: Third Downs and Lockdowns
As Philadelphia begins to prepare for a second set of coronavirus-related restrictions, the guys talk about the Eagles' low-energy loss to the Giants on Sunday (8:00).  They also debate the likelihood and the merits of a potential James Harden trade for the Sixers (23:49) before a little Masters talk wraps things up (35:17).

13. 11/11/20: Good Bye Week
This week, the guys fail miserably in their attempt to put out a shorter episode during the Eagles' bye week.  After the usual pleasantries and beverage-related buffoonery, the guys take a few minutes to reflect on the passing of legendary Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek (3:00) before discussing the Union's win over New England on Sunday that clinched the first trophy in club history and the team's playoff prospects (9:03).  Then, since there was no Eagles game to talk about, they decided to take an in-depth look at where Carson Wentz ranks among NFL quarterbacks (25:40).

12. 11/03/20: The Least Infuriating Thing You'll Listen To Today
While you're on your way to the polls, or while you're waiting in line to vote, or if you've already voted, take a break from the political talk and join the Boo Birds as they discuss the excitement of Daryl Morey joining the Sixers' front office (6:12), the frustration of Kevin Cash overmanaging in Game 6 of the World Series (21:59), the fury of seeing Justin Turner on the field after the game despite carrying a positive COVID-19 test result (31:42), and then the contractually obligated discussion of the Eagles-Cowboys game (46:08).  Plus, John tries a new beverage, and the effects are noticeable (4:56).

11. 10/27/20: Beasts of the Easts
The Eagles are back in first place after a win over the Giants on Thursday Night Football (7:05).  They're not the only ones, though, as the Union took Toronto FC behind the proverbial woodshed on Saturday night for a 5-0 beatdown that vaulted the local MLS side into first place with three matches remaining in this most irregular of regular seasons (31:48), and you best believe Joe talked about it at length.  Finally, the guys talk about the preposterous finish to Game 4 of the World Series (45:14).  Bet you didn't think you'd hear the name "Enos Slaughter" today, did you?

6. 09/30/20: Yes, Donovan, There is Tying in Football
In the newest edition of The Boo Birds Podcast, the guys do their best to briefly unpack another rough week.  The Phillies needed one more win over the final week of the season but couldn't get it (4:06); other than the bullpen, what went wrong?  Then, the Eagles had an arguably worse outcome on Sunday, playing to a tie with the Bengals; the guys try to make heads or tails out of a performance that had its ups and down (17:21).

The guys take another distressing look at the Eagles' issues after their Week 2 loss to the Rams (5:17), including trying to place the blame for the loss and a discussion of how things could change for the franchise if the season doesn't get back on track (22:00).  Then it's time for John to lay out the case for why he thinks the Phillies need to make front office changes (29:10) before the guys share the best ending to a game they've seen in person (48:52).  Spoiler alert: you've already heard about Joe's before.
