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?He has moved around a TON over the past few years. It's really surprising to me.
"Some guys really earning their pinstripes" had me in stitches. Great episode!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.
Thanks for that. You can d/l it here (the date is July 10, 2018):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.
They do have technical (sound) issues when more than three join in.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.
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.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 love Joe and think he's one of the best writers out there, no matter the topic. I have read his Reds book and I am looking forward to the Houdini book. I am a humongous fan. And following him around has been quite an endeavor. Mario WISHES he had Joe's jumping skills.Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Good one.
I mean, you are kidding, right? Dude jumps more than Mario.
As someone that was subscribed to both his blog *and* The Athletic, this is wonderful.As someone who was already subscribed to the Athletic, this is great news for me.
I wasn't paying for his blog, but did miss reading him regularly. This makes the Athletic even more undroppable for me.
Until Joe goes somewhere else, at least.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. Sure he will. And after that he’ll rewrite Paterno and include all the messy stuff.For those of you with The Athletic (and those on the fence) Joe promises to do an updated (4th version) of the top 100 baseball players of all-time. Started this on his blog and was sporadic at best. Now he has a schedule for all 100.
