This is the episode that you’ve been anxiously waiting for or dreading depending on if your name is Aaron or Casey. They’re joined by Jeremey, who runs the Jaims VanDer Beek Twitter account and who makes shirts for wrestlers and memes for the entire internet, and Ethan HD, an aspiring wrestler and comedian. They talk about Wrestlemania, and also they talk about sports for slightly more than one minute.
Spike Friedman joins Casey and Aaron for what was one of the best Offspeed podcasts ever. This episode features talk about the morality of football as a spectator sport, college basketball, the Seattle Mariners, and a lot more.
Aaron and Casey are joined by the virile and massively intelligent Matthew Carruth. Matthew is the proprietor of StatCorner, a writer at USS Mariner and Fangraphs, and formerly of Lookout Landing. Matthew talked to two idiots about NFL transactions, the Seahawks, beer, and a bunch of other things. Please enjoy our 18th episode.
On this week’s podcast Aaron and Casey are joined by Casey’s good friend Matthias Kullowatz. Matthias is a stats professor, and one of the smartest guys in the world, and recently attended the Sloan Analytics Conference representing the university he teaches for, and more loosely the website he writes for, American Soccer Analysis. In addition to Matthias’ recent exploits, the guys talked about some controversy surrounding a joke that Aaron told, NFL free agency, soccer, and the value of modern sports metrics.
Unexpectedly alone, Aaron and Casey extended their contrition from last week but eventually made up and got along with each other. They talked mostly about baseball in this episode, including Josh Hamilton, Michael Saunders, and Jesus Montero. They revisited the two Mariners Cliff Lee trades so that Casey could talk about John Jaso.
