    HoS Pod with guest Jesse Singal: How to Deal With Criticism

    HoS Pod with guest Jesse Singal: How to Deal With Criticism

    So, to warn the sports contingent of subscribers, this one isn’t a sports podcast. It is, however, about the broader issue of how to deal with criticism.

    HoS Pod with guest Jonathan Tjarks: What's the Meaning of Life?

    HoS Pod with guest Jonathan Tjarks: What's the Meaning of Life?

    At age 33, with a wife and young son, The Ringer NBA writer Jonathan Tjarks was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He’s reacted with remarkable stoicism to this news, even if he didn’t feel all too stoic at first. Jonathan’s a fascinating guy and someone who’s totally unique in sports media. I loved getting his perspective on life and hope you will too.

    HoS Pod with guest Wosny Lambre: On Twitter and Politics

    HoS Pod with guest Wosny Lambre: On Twitter and Politics

    Wosny Lambre of The Ringer fame stops by the HoS to discuss the prompt, “Is Twitter real life?”

    I’m not sure we fully answered that question, but we got into a whole range of issues I wasn’t expecting, including Wos’ takes on AOC, Nancy Pelosi, and whether he’d actually broach his misgivings about Obama’s presidency to Barack in person. Obviously, if you aren’t much for the politics, this pod could be outside your wheelhouse. Still, I’d recommend it for all because Wos just happens to be so damned engaging, thoughtful and b******t-free. Enjoy.

    Narrated Article: Nike's End of Men

    Narrated Article: Nike's End of Men

    Hey audience. So I keep hearing from people that, these days, they prefer the audiobook experience to reading. Rather than mourn how we’ve degenerated into philistines or whatever, I’m here to serve the damned need. Since this article appeared to strike a nerve, I wanted to start with it and make it free for all listeners. Future narrated articles will indeed require a subscription, though. And yes, this is my voice doing the reading, for good and for ill. I take a sick amount of pride in doing my own stunts. It’s your money and I intend to work hard for it. Thanks for reading, listening and supporting the site.

One of the best

Ethan is one of the most intellectual nba writers and fits well as a podcaster. More Ethan, more Amin, more Tom please.

Disappointing start.

I’ll give it a few more listens because Ethan has built up that respect over the years, but there were some seriously garbage takes on that podcast with Woz. It sounded like a discussion on Reddit.

Really wanted to like this podcast because I enjoyed listening to Ethan on another sports podcast

But was disappointed to learn that this is just like the myriad other anti-woke and reactionary podcasts out there that are now a dime a dozen. There is sadly a seemingly bottomless market for these takes but it’s lazy, tired, and self-interested. Bummer.
