    He has moved around a TON over the past few years. It's really surprising to me.

    Guy who has entire foundations of ethical reality and sense of self gets torched when he realizes he's been engaged in hero worship of the enabler of monstrous sexual violence that makes him if not himself a monster, a weak, passive, morally bankrupt individual, has trouble finding a new place in a crazy mixed up world he had not realized was where he lived?

    This isn't that weird. It just means he's a thoughtful guy. That can be rough on a person.

    I want to like his new podcast but the fact that he uses the title word “passion” in seemingly every sentence is grating.

    Nick Offerman on the PosCast was an all-timer with a draft up there with the holiday songs.

    Yeah, it was great. I love how wildly different Joe's and Nick's PG ratings are.

    Nick's Field of Dreams rundown is absolutely wonderful.

    Parental Guidance.

    Nick referenced that it was a PG or family podcast, but still got way more blue than Joe or Mike ever get. It's funny how even a mild curse can sound so jarring on the Poscast.

    There's a glorious new version of the Poscast up with Mike Schur and Brandon McCarthy that features an extended 'Yankee Minute' following their loss in the ALDS. A great listen for Sox fans.

    In a likely nod to the (near) future, though, it turns out that it is only 'Part 1', with the second half of the podcast featuring the draft only available on Joe's pay site. Probably just a matter of time before all of his podcasts are behind the paywall.

    "Some guys really earning their pinstripes" had me in stitches. Great episode!

    If you're a Michael Schur fan, he's interviewed on Sarah Spain's That What She Said podcast. He talks about his early years as an SNL writer, starting the Fire Joe Morgan blog and working for network TV. It's a great interview.

    His latest podcast, "PosCast Draft: 2nd Annual Holiday Blowout" is one of the funniest podcasts I have ever heard and I'm not even done with it. It's definitely worth checking out.

    It was awesome. Them shitting on Sepinwall's dumb picks was great

    Sepinwall "You're all playing checkers and I'm playing chess"
    Ken Tremendous "Yeah it's a checkers tournament dude. You were eliminated"

    I think the Skype format was a bit difficult with so many involved. I mean, Nick Offerman was silent for minutes at a time. Last year's was probably better (and totally worth going back to check out). But this one was also great.

    They do have technical (sound) issues when more than three join in.

    The Podcast was a Top 10 for the year. Shur going over the Transiberian Orchestra pick from last year brought me joy. It was a great callback, creating a great moment, on the power of last year's perfect moment. It was a tower of brilliance and comedy. Linda Holmes building an army to use her Christmas characters to fight for world domination was sublime, only to be taken out by the German/English army late round pick, which was perfect.

    Truly a remarkable hour and a half. Sepinwall was the only negative. He's a guy who thinks he's funny, and cares so much about it, nobody around him has the heart to tell him he's an unfunny turd. It's pathetic. His Groundhog Day pick was obnoxious. In summary, fuck him, hopefully he's thrown out of the tourney next year, so they can find someone who is actually clever and funny.

    I listened on a bus today and not only laughed out loud many times but was in tears of laughter a few times, too.

    Sepinwall is a villain on the Poscast because of his Yankee fandom. They like to make fun of him as it is and whether it was intentional on his part or not in this episode, he gave them an opportunity to do it some more, so I was fine with that. It seems like someone always has to get slammed by all the others on these holiday drafts - last year it was 'Jetwash' for his TSO pick, this year it was Sepinwall.

    Michael Schur mentioned in the latest Poscast that he will be stepping away for a bit to work on his TV show. He also said he will return some time in 2019 with something new.

    Starts off great but feels like he remembered he had to be someplace and that finish just raced on in.

    No disrespect to Joe, but it's just not nearly as good when Shuur's not around.

    Not at all, but the Gary Gulman episode was decent.

    I agree it was decent. But two-person drafts (even with Schur) are rarely as good as multi-person drafts .
