Wits host John Moe loves sports. On Home Dunk, John and his guests talk about the stories of sports in a smart, friendly way, from the vantage point of people who didn’t necessarily make the team. They will also tell you which NFL mascot would win in a fight. We’re sorry, Cleveland. Part of the Infinite Guest network from American Public Media.
31: Sean Doolittle Throws Into a Sock
John Moe and Mike Fotis discuss Adrian Peterson’s camel-riding party entrance, play Steve Miller Band or NCAA Men's Basketball Coach, and praise John Urschel’s math wizardry. Then John and Sean Doolittle talk rehab and needless apostrophes.

27: Dan Savage’s Advice for the Knicks

This is a sports how for people who don’t take their sports too seriously. John Moe clearly loves sports and he gets some great guests on to talk about everything from mediocre NBA players to the mythological parallels between Greek classic literature and modern sports stars. And if that’s too highfalutin’ for ya, then how about doing “who would win in a fight” between all the NFL mascots?
Fresh Take on Sports
Home Dunk is great listening. John Moe makes sports I don’t even like more interesting. The guests are first rate, and I learn something each time.
I hope John Moe stays in MN and keeps creating excellent content. WITS, Home Dunk, and pledge drive drop ins, he is just great.
