Episode 6: Ending The Drought
July 10 2018
Episode 13: A Swoosh and a Stance
September 18 2018
In Donald Trump's eyes, NFLers who don't stand for the national anthem shouldn't be playing and, maybe, "shouldn't be in the country." But Jeff and Stephen believe it was the league, not the players, who created the current us-against-them climate. They are joined by Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for New York Times Magazine and author of Big Game: The NFL in Dangerous Times, to take listeners behind the scenes of NFL ownership and crisis management in Trump's America.

Episode 10: Clubhouse Culture
August 08 2018
When a team is out of playoff contention, does its clubhouse culture change? Thirteen-year MLB vet and Kansas City Royals colour commentator, Rex Hudler, joins Jeff and Stephen to discuss just that. What did he do to keep his teammates motivated when losing? How does an in-season managerial change impact a club? And how do teams handle negativity in the clubhouse?
