    You can almost hear in Sarah Koenig’s voice that even she thinks the Bowe Bergdahl case is a stinker. :lol:

    Why not just call this episode of WTF “You’re Not Interested, Kevin”.

    Also, an eating disorder? How much of a beta male is Marc Maron?

    Comedian Nikki Glaser and Marc share a bond that might be deeper than love: They share an eating disorder. Nikki and Marc talk about how they’ve both struggled, where they’ve found support, and what they needed to fix elsewhere in their lives in order to make progress. Also, Marc…

    I was actually fascinated by it, it was brutally honest.  Also, she’s apparently a big porn freak.

     

    You know what sucks?  Skype calls on podcasts.  Fucking make a west coast trip Gilbert.  I need 2 hours of Ileana Douglass sounding like she’s underwater like I need a third ball.

    For some ungodly reason I listened to Robert Wuhl interview Sean McDonough

    Told of how an Aunt came back into Saint Willie’s funeral and claimed to have seen Whitey outside the church – “I’ve known him all my life and I can never forget those eyes.”

    Sean doubled down by saying a cousin or some such (think Ferris and 31 flavors) asked Whitey about it while he was locked up down in Plymouth and Whitey confirmed the story.

    Also claims that his father really wasn’t that close to Bulger (the Globe book claims will used to brag about visiting Jimmy in Leavenworth when the Sox would play in Kansas City) and that he was far more friendly with “President” Bulger.

    In a Ray Clayborn related twist, Sean claims he almost came to blows with Danny Ferry over some alleged disrespect thrown Sean’s GM brother’s way.

    I’m only half way through, but Maron did a heck of an interview with David Simon.

    Maron’s 700th with Julia Louis Dreyfus is great. Psyched for the second half with Louis CK

    SUPER deep dive into Horace & Pete.  Very interesting though.

    Patton Oswalt’s wife died last night.  46 years old.

    Listened to Kirk and TEC.

    The Bedard quote was great.

    Tom also mentioned that in his opinion Bert was being contentious with BB for the sake of being contentious “merit badge” from other media members.

    Felger doesn’t like the fact that he’s “demonized” when Mike claims he is only trying to do his job I found hysterical.

    I hope TEC is the one who writes the book about the entire BB/Brady era – either on his own or in collaboration with Tom or Bill.

    Also liked the part where Curran takes apart the bullshit sports radio mentality that Minihane has to pretend that a bad pitching change in April is the end of the world.

    I should have thought better than to listen to the Lore Podcast while  walking my dogs in the would. At least I’d have a chance against the vampire chipmunks.

    Meanwhile the Lore podcaster says he is in development for a tv series with the walking dead folks

    Id watch it.

    Austin has material for one podcast a week but an obligation to do two a week.

    Working backwards through the Dollop archives. The “Cereal Men” episode around episode 40 or so guest starring Patton Oswald is outstanding.  The “big reveal” hit Gareth like the Red Wedding hit unsuspecting Game of Throne fans.

    That’s one of the great one….re-listened to it on my way to a thing a couple weeks ago.

    Going back to the well of baseball was great for this week’s on Disco Demolition Night.  They have had some great baseball stories: The Rube, 10 Cent Beer Night, Lenny Dykstra, the Yankee Pitcher Swap.

    They really need to do a Darren Daulton one, what with the drugs and the UFO shit.  Also, the Dock Ellis no hitter, but even Gary might know that.

    Half way through season 2 of Bosch. I never read the books.

    I love Amazon Video because you can cache shows in the iPad app to watch on a plane. Good to have on and fall asleep to.

    One thing I have to say-Titus Welliver does better acting in those ads he’s in.

    If you’re looking for a Serial rip off, you could do worse than Finding Tammy Jo, about a Jane Doe case outside Rochester in the late 70s.  Episodes are like 10-12 minutes.

    Also, my cousin’s girlfriend is involved somehow in the production.  She does features editing for the local paper.

    Upon further reflection, the most amazing thing about the Boston Marathon Dollop episode is that some people are in shape enough to have an argument about relationships while in the middle of running a fucking marathon.

    Finally Stone Cold has a guest I’m interested in: Robbie Knievel.

    Then it turns out that his bitterness towards his father isn’t as strong as I had hoped, so it was just okay.

    God help me, but I haven’t found a single episode of Minihane’s podcast I haven’t found informative and enjoyable.  (Well, Sheppard did whine way too friggin much)

    Curran, Jackie, and Gorman were all really good, especially the last 2 since I’m quite a Celtics neophyte.

    The Sheppard one was worth it just for the fact that for seven months he drove to Ordway’s house and essentially didn’t get paid.

    100%. I felt bad for Pete more than mocked him. I mean these guys have no skills other than what they do (or did) so i’d be doing the same pathetic dog and pony show hoping the show succeeds.

    Holding my nose, it’s the one podcast i look forward to right now. I really cannot wait for the Borges, Andelman, Bob Lobel ones.

    Peter King’s voice might be the worst on radio. You cannot go more than 8 minutes listening to him. That low level croak in his voice is awful.

    Peter King’s voice might be the worst on radio. You cannot go more than 8 minutes listening to him. That low level croak in his voice is awful.

    I think King’s now enemy number one in my book, simply for being a jackass coupled with holding a position of considerable influence on what the conventional wisdom will become on a story. I’ve listened to most of the Minihane podcasts, and enjoyed the ones I listened to with the exception of Fatty.

    The other guests, sure it doesn’t take long to regarner the hatred (like when Shanks says of KPD, “He’s the best, he’s the best” or calling Judge Berman a fanboy), but every now and then they say something interesting (like Jackie talking about what a weaselly little cunt Jim Paxson was) or something you agree with (like Shank saying Kraft’s the neediest sports figure he’s ever met).

    A running theme with all the Globies Kirk interviewed is the self-entitlement. While their unfettered access (especially Ryan) is what made them so much more interesting to read back in the day, they all act like as Globe sports, they’re supposed to be treated like kings. Like it’s their prose that made the players, rather than the players making them. It really is no wonder the Globe takes such exception to New Media; they remember when they were pretty much the only game in town, and it irks them no end that they have to fight what’s in their mind the lesser media, and sitting next them way above courtside no less. I carry the same attitude as Shank toward Thornton’s weakass fanboy bit, but I love that his existence on EEI bothers Shank so much.

    …and just like that, I eat my words.  Minihane’s podcast with Artie Lange sucked.  Same old stories, a little good semi Stern bashing, and a plug for his $ pod.

    Artie was funny, but I’m pretty sure Kirk would have blown him if he asked.

    Not sure why Artie is still so deferential to Stern. He refuses to answer his calls for years?

    At one point I was convinced I had listened to the episode before. He repeats stories almost word for word.

    The Sheppard one was worth it just for the fact that for seven months he drove to Ordway’s house and essentially didn’t get paid.

    Listening to Sheppard one now. Wow, he’s completely delusional in what his actual skills are and what he believed he brought to The Big Show (“People told me I was the straw that stirred the drink”).  And even after it’s plainly clear to the rest of us that neither EEI nor 98.5 want any part of him, he’s still this pompous dickbag thinking he’s a commodity to be desired.

    I understand the urge to feel sorry for him, because he is the ultimate sad sack constantly failing and not understanding the forces that keep him down. Of course, those forces were that he was an unintelligent, quick-tempered, profane, illiterate, stammering flash guy who thought he was the talent. Gee, such a shock people thought he might not be good for radio. Plus he was always the first one to throw the “in your mother’s basement” or “flipping burgers” shots at callers. His downfall was karmic justice.

    At the tail end of the podcast, Pete and Kirk are laying odds on whether the podcast will actually air, the premise being Pete’s such a bomb-thrower there’s no way thin-skinned EEI would allow it to air. My theory is EEI was thrilled to air it, because it makes Pete sound exactly like the loser they think he is.

    I was just looking at Patreon, and the Dollop is bringing in $5,300 a month.  I know the research and writing takes a lot of time, but that’s a pretty good haul.
