The PTBNL Podcast – Episode 5: A New Approach to Tinder, LeBron James, and Mariner Magic

Intrepid reporters Josh Liebeskind (The Seattle Times) and Jacob Thorpe (The Spokesman Review) join the program for a cavalcade of discussion topics.

From bachelor parties, to dudes tanning themselves on the beach, to LeBron James, to the warmth of Jack Zduriencik’s hot seat and more, we touch on all the things you may or may not care about in Episode 5.

The show really takes off with the return of the Rex Looks for Love segment, which answers the question “What happens when you only send quotes from Ichiro Suzuki to prospective love interests?”


The PTBNL Podcast – Episode 4: Jon Ryan

Is there a better representation of true American heroism than Seattle Seahawks punter and native Canadian Jon Ryan? I don’t think so.

On this week’s episode we welcome the Super Bowl Champion and 2005 CFL All-Star to the show to discuss everything from Bar Rescue, to American Ninja Warrior, to his social media prowess, to actual on-field football banter. And amidst all of that, Ryan will talk you back onto the Seattle Mariners bandwagon, if you aren’t there already.

Matt Mikolas, aka Slickhawk, from Sports Radio KJR’s Mitch in the Morning show joins us as in-studio guest host for the hour. And if you’ve ever had any debate over whether weddings held on the Fourth of July are fair or foul, we break it down from the opening bell.

What in the holy fuck are you motherfuckers doing out there? I mean, seriously. What in the complete and utter shit is this mess?

Here we are 54 fucking games into this godforsaken season and you assholes have somehow only managed to scratch together 24 fucking wins. Your own goddamn manager told us to be patient until the 50-game mark. Wait for 50 games, he advised, before you judge this ball club. THAT WAS FOUR GAMES AGO! And you guys are shit! It’s not hard to see. You. Are. Shit. You haven’t won shit, you can’t hit shit, your relievers pitch like shit, and everyone watching you play feels like shit because of the backasswards bullshit you’ve put us through. It’s a fucking monsoon of pure, unadulterated shit!

Where does anyone even begin when attempting to sift through all the flaws this team has displayed in the season’s first two months?

The PTBNL Podcast – Episode 2: Now 50-Percent More Engaging!

Somehow, we’ve made it to multiple episodes of The PTBNL Podcast, which means this thing might be here to stay.

On this week’s edition of the show, we welcome Sportspress Northwest’s Adam Lewis into the studio, as we discuss many things of non-importance and other things that are slightly more important.

Hot takes include Mariners talk, Russell Wilson on-field and off-field action, the stupidity of crowd funding pro athletes, a discussion around the SODO arena, and a new segment we like to call “Rex Looks for Love.”

Find it all by clicking play up above.

And once you’ve listened, please be sure to coax someone into donating to our Free Tom Brady GoFundMe campaign.

The PTBNL Podcast – Episode 1

With great pride, I present to you the debut episode of The PTBNL Podcast. Never mind the fact that The Podcast To Be Named Later Podcast is somewhat redundant, a la “PIN number,” or that we may or may not keep the lack of a name we’ve employed for the time being.

All you need to know is that Rex Carlin and I have taken our oral talents and turned them into aural pleasure for anyone who dares to click play on that which you see above. If nothing else, it should be a madcap adventure.

Our inaugural foray into this world of hot takes includes discussion around your 2015 Seattle Mariners, the Seahawks’ Bruce Irvin, a commentary on Bill Simmons and media, and features the first of our weekly guests, Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard and reigning NBA Slam Dunk champion Zach LaVine.

Check it out if you dare, and thanks for listening.


Everybody, Chill: The Mariners Are Just Fine

mariners-fan-catches-foul-ball-in-beer-then-chugsYou people are insatiable.

Three games into a 162-game season and you’re flipping out like Drake just walked in the room wearing your favorite team’s jersey. It’s goddamn ridiculous. Get ahold of yourselves.

There are precisely four possible outcomes for a team’s win-loss record after three games – 0-3, 1-2, 2-1, and 3-0. And because the Seattle Mariners haven’t achieved the very best outcome, we’re out here losing our shit on a Wednesday night because THE SEASON IS RUINED.

First of all, cool your tits. Continue reading Everybody, Chill: The Mariners Are Just Fine
