    Shorties 53: Black Sheep

    Shorties 53: Black Sheep

    Week two of February shorties and Eldridge and Bob thought maybe it’s time to get really really f*****g sad. Unfortunately, Chris Farley is nowhere to be found in this one. A 10 year old Nigerian boy is stabbed in London and a scared Nigerian family move to Essex to escape the hub-bub of big city drama. Of course we’re talking England outside of London so what is this Nigerian teenager seeing? Whiteys. Whiteys and their janky faces. Cornelius can only take two much of the racism until he decides to join up with those who hate him for the color of his skin. Eldridge and Bob discuss the Ed Perkins documentary short he made for the Guardian called “Black Sheep”. (Hence the Chris Farley reference.) Layers and layers of sad. Even the Pillsbury Dough Boy is crying. Cry laughing actually. That thing is f*****g scary now that I think about it. But not scarier than racism.

    Episode 121: Strong Island

    Episode 121: Strong Island

    Long Island or the Deep South? They might have more in common than you think. Angela picks up the true crime baton to join Bob on a sad tale where the attempt at justice barely exists. Yance Ford refuses to led the narrative of his late sibling, William Ford, be controlled by anybody else. When William was shot, unarmed, in a Long Island garage it seemed very clear very quickly that the shooter in this scenario was gonna get slapped on the wrist with a pillow. Long Island courts paint a narrative of William that Yance refuses to accept. A new look at a decades old tragedy. Sad as f**k. We maybe cried in this one. Our mascara really ran. You can find this on Netflix if you want to be sad with us. Keep on Doccin’

    Shorties 52: Period. End of Sentence

    Shorties 52: Period. End of Sentence

    Just what the world needs. Two dudes discussing periods. Punctuation and Menstruation. We’re not sure where the usual women co-hosts are. My guess, as a man, is that they’re on their period? (Waits for laughter. Receives none.) Eldridge and Bob unite like a lame Voltron to discuss all Shorties for the month of February and to start us off we go to a small village in India where mentioning of that time of the month results in giggling and pretending you’re talking about something else other than girly bodily fluids. We tackle the Netflix short documentary “Period. End of Sentence” by Rayka Zehtabchi. You can’t just walk into small-town shops in India and find pads and tampon, so who do you call? The Pad Patrol and their Uncles think they’re making diapers or something. Men…they say the darnedest things. Ruby and Jackie be trippin’

    Episode 120: 30 for 30: One Night in Vegas

    Episode 120: 30 for 30: One Night in Vegas

    Get raged up and check your....beef? It’s 30 for 30 time so Bob and Drew reexamine another crossroads between sports and music. Tupac Shakur and Mike Tyson were fast friends with a lot in common and in Reggie Rock Bythewood’s 30 for 30 film “One Night in Vegas” their bond is posited as parallel lives leading to the death of Tupac on the same night Mike Tyson regained the WBC Heavyweight title. Also, the surprise reveal that Drew is something of a 2Pac connoisseur, whereas Bob was more concentrated on Notorious B.I.G. growing up, means they are forced to fight to the death using only the freestyles that come out of their heart and mind and also a fork. Podcast is mostly an audio medium therefore you can't see the copious amounts of blood and sperm. What the f**k is going on with these episode descriptions?

    Shorties 51: The Anti-Mascot

    Shorties 51: The Anti-Mascot

    Drew and Bob lay their vaguely sports themed shorties to rest for January and we end it all on nothing less than the mascot world’s very own version of Jesus Christ. The 1984 San Francisco Giants were in the toilet for the season. A silly television commercial starring a touristy San Fran mascot reject became an on-field sponge for fan hate. A mime named Wayne + A hand full of batteries ÷ director Colin Hanks and you have a short documentary appropriately titled “The Anti-Mascot”. Grab your water balloon full of fun and prepare for the most hated crab in Giantsland. It got body slammed by the San Diego Padres for our sins.
