ESPN's only Father/Daughter duo team up to laugh and talk family, pop culture and sports.
Super Bowl Rih-Rihview - Timeout 75
There was a Rihanna concert interrupted by a football game last week and the Flems are here to breakdown every aspect of Rih-Rih’s iconic, chill-but-empowering performance — from the high-flying choreography, to the fashion, the set list, the baby bump reveal, a bizarre (gross) theory about the theme and even a full, detailed breakdown of Rhi-Rhi’s Fenty Beauty pre-show routine from … Dave, of course. Trust us, this ep shines bright, like a diamond.
Hip Hop Hooray - Timeout 74
The Flems break down the Grammys, perhaps the greatest awards show in history, starting with the incredible tribute to 50 years of Hip Hop. After a new segment called Ally’s Corner, featuring an epic recap of Ally’s first job fair (sponsored by: Secret Antiperspirant) the Flems break down the Grammys as only they can with dad-daughter debates on fashion (Harry Styles’ Rainbow Fish jumper); vibes (Lizzo, LL Cool J, TayTay, Jay-Z, Ben Affleck); plastic surgery (Madonna); conspiracies (Cardi B and Harry Styles’ stage snafu); and, of course, music (the moving story behind Bonnie Raitt’s winning song).
Back to Back and We’re Back - Timeout 73
After a (brief) hiatus, a ski trip and a national TV appearance, the Flems are back (again) and better than ever with a full ep dedicated to championship football. Get the inside scoop on the Flems trip to LA to watch the Georgia Bulldogs win (another) Natty featuring Ally’s network TV debut. The Flems then breakdown everything you need to know about the Super Bowl, meaning: the Mahomes family social media, Rhianna’s Halftime Show and, of course, Ally’s expert pick for the game. For ITO listeners there’s also an exclusive reveal of the first review of Dave’s next book - and it’s a doozy!
A Big McSteak: The Flems Try the McRib - Timeout 72
With the McRib about to be permanently retired (for the 4th time) and Ally home for Thanksgiving, the Flem's provide you with some much-needed Thanksgiving travel comic-relief by sampling the McDonald's "classic" while catching up on the #Georgia Bulldogs run at another National Championship, Dave's story on the 10th anniversary of the New York #Jets Butt Fumble, the #Budweiser snafu at the #WorldCup, the Flem Family's annual Turkey Trot 5K and much more. While the jury is still out about the McRib -- a "restructured meat" sandwich rumored to contain bits of Loch Ness Monster fin and the inspiration behind what Ally calls "A McRib Butt Fumble" -- as far as the rest of this hilarious ep goes, we're sure the ITO Fam will be Lovin' It.
So This Is Us Standing In Front of You Sayin We’re Sorry for that Pod - Timeout 71
After a near-revolt by the ITO & TayTay fams the Flems reconsider their hasty and slightly harsh initial take on Swift’s 10th album ‘Midnights.’ Tune in for a smart, nuanced, insightful (mea culpa) and re-review of TayTay’s latest work as well as Dave’s current ESPN feature on a behind-the-scenes look at the crazy Astros fan “Mattress Mack” who is now just 4 wins away from cashing in on a record $75 million World Series bet. And be sure to check out the shows INSTA page for a collage of faux ‘Midnights’ covers.
Wrong Way TayTay ('Midnights' Instant Review) - Timeout 70
The Flems instant review is in for TayTay's 10th album 'Midnights' and it's a shocker. Instead of continuing on in the 'Folklore' vein or returning to her pop glory days of '1989', TayTay split the difference with a restrained, dreamy, electro-confessional concept album that left the Flems, well, underwhelmed. While every other so-called critic on the planet raves over 'Midnights', tune into this week's ep of ITO for the real tea on TayTay and to find out why the Flems, two of the biggest TayTay Stans around, dared to give this wildly over-hyped (and, uninspired) effort a ... C+ after their first listen.
It’s a pod story baby just say 5 stars.
I started listening to the pod after listening to your episode on ESPN Daily and I’m so glad I did. A podcast combining two of my favorite things in one place, Queen Taylor and Sports, sign me up! You have such a special relationship as father and daughter and it translates so well via the airwaves. I’m excited to keep listening, keep up the great work :)
Great escape :)
Timeout is fantabulicious! — Caleb
