Karate Emergency Ep. 33: Great Debates and Top Eights


In the wake of joining the Ian and Puck Show on KJR (you can listen to our hour segment here), consider this the “after show.”

Pointed discussions on Myspace, the Mariners, and the greatest sports debate of all-time envelop the conclusion of last week’s ménage à talk, grumpiness, and This Week in ’90s History.

Listen to both segments back-to-back for maximum effect. Please consult your doctor if anything lasts longer than four hours.



Karate Emergency Ep. 32: The Devil’s Triple Play



Esteemed stand-up comedian, sports savant, Offspeed Podcast creator, and friend of the program Casey McLain joins the show this week as a fill-in guest host for one of the lost Karate Kids. Casey provides valuable insight on married life and goes into detail on his uncomfortable love affair with former Mariner John Jaso.

Speaking of love, Kelly reveals a deep, dark secret about her past love life — which in turn begs this question: On a scale from 1 to 10, how many people has Kelly slept with simultaneously?

The answer to that question, plus a Mariners update, I-5 Rivalry nostalgia, and another edition of Tindermonials on this week’s Karate Emergency!

Karate Emergency Ep. 31: Feuds


From baseball players to local media members, seemingly everyone has a beef to work out this week. We set the record straight on every feud you want to hear about, bat signals included.

Plus, a new segment debuts that combines dating apps, DMs, and a special guest narrator. The lines you’re about to hear won’t disappoint.

All that, some general grumpiness, a crippling “injury,” and the current state of your Seattle Mariners on this week’s Karate Emergency!

Karate Emergency Ep. 30: I Want It That Way


Should the NBA legalize gonad-kicking?

Will Chris Taylor ignite the Mariners’ downfall?

Did Slickhawk really send fan mail to a pop star?

Is Geoff Baker going to get his ass kicked?

What are married couples buying at Costco that have the Karate Kids up in arms?

And what exactly prompted one sports radio troll to delete his Twitter account?

All these questions answered and more on this week’s Karate Emergency, where we’ll never show you the meaning of being lonely.

Karate Emergency Ep. 29: Bat Signals and Breakups


Meerkats rejoice! Two-thirds of the KE cast has found their way back to Tinder in the wake of equally harrowing, though completely unique, breakups.

Plus, was Rougned Odor’s KO of Jose Bautista a great thing for baseball or the greatest thing for baseball?

All that and more, along with all your Beyonce news, on this week’s Karate Emergency!

Karate Emergency Ep. 28: Vacate This

Sonics Rally

We’re in mourning over the death of Sonics Arena this week, at the hands of the evil Seattle City Council. In the aftermath of the execution, reaction has been decidedly negative. Is the vitriol warranted?

Seattle’s favorite quarterback weighs in on the arena news, but does he really deserve praise for backing the movement?

And the first place Mariners, winners of 14 of their last 19 games, are finally refusing to lose. What’s next for the hometown nine?

All of that, plus Slickhawk tries his hand at glamping on this week’s Karate Emergency!
