    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.

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.
