    Frank Reich Trivia Night (with Lucas Hazlett)

    Frank Reich Trivia Night (with Lucas Hazlett)

    What a fun show chatting about Frank Reich. He's one religious, German guy that Bill Polian once called the greatest backup quarterback in NFL history. Yeah, Nick Foles and Charlie Batch got something to say about that, but still, no one is arguing with the comeback. All time great, and don't forget those 7 starts with the Jets and the first TD pass in Panthers history.


    Lucas Hazlett comes on the show and we talk about Fox News, friendship, Frank Reich's name, Frank Reich trivia, Nickelback, answer Bring In The Backups Voicemails, 80's football and basketball, NFL playoffs and more.

    Happy Holidays From a Podcast

    Happy Holidays From a Podcast

    On this episode of the podcast, I cancel the podcast because my grandfather died and this is just a podcast. But I talk for ten minutes, so hopefully that doesn't suck.


    I give a quick shout-out to my friend Ryan Neser and his great show at The Cellar Door in Frederick, MD. I also talk about an appearance I made on MTV talking about my late grandfather. I also question if Bobby Hebert is French, getting a stomach bug, old episodes of my show, and starting 2022 off with a bang.


    You can now leave a message for the show at 323-716-6072. Call in and let me know your thoughts. As always, support the show at ErickHellwig.com. Leave me a five star Apple podcast review if you haven't already.

    Joey Harrington‘s Thxgiving REVENGE!

    Joey Harrington‘s Thxgiving REVENGE!

    Joey Harrington is a name that will ring our in glory on Oregon forever. Not so much in Detroit, and that's because the Lions front office and organization as a whole is insane. Luckily for Joey, and the world, Thanksgiving 2006 was Vengeance Day, and we got the deep dive here.


    This pod is a solo episode that covers the college career of Joey Harrington, his Ted Talk, not crying and talking at the same time, the YouTube page with Backup Quarterback Highlights, how to pronounce Justin Herbert's name, Dre Bly being a bitch, gluten free pumpkin pie, how to plan Thanksgiving dinner, Detroit Lions coaches, Dan Campbell's looks, spending time in the hospital, and Joey Harrington's Miami Dolphins smacking down the Lions on Thanksgiving in 2006...the ultimate revenge game.


    I also chat about my time in the Boston Comedy Festival and getting into SF Sketchfest. Support this podcast at ErickHellwig.com.

    Nick Foles Made Me Hug My Dad

    Nick Foles Made Me Hug My Dad

    The day has finally come. Nick Foles has his first stand-alone episode of the podcast. Big Dick Nick himself. Obviously I didn't get the real Nick Foles on the podcast, but I talk about him a lot on this one. I also talk about Aaron Rodgers, how little I know about COVID, Henry Ruggs III, driving drunk in college, the Army vs. Air Force game, Loudermilk, Ritch Ruiz making burritos, the CFP, Barely Making It LA and my upcoming trip to Massachusetts for the Boston Comedy Festival.


    This is a mindless podcast but I had a good time making myself laugh. Support the show by reviewing it here. Support me by following my tour dates here. That is all. Nick Foles Forever.
