Scottish Football

as a scot who has grown up in the states, hearing the scottish prem and weather is all it takes to make me want to move out of the sun and back to the place that i’ll always call home.

Petty, Ill-Informed and Brilliant

The first time I head Off the Ball was “a real JFK moment” (Thanks, Tam). I still tell people the joke about the blacksmith asking the boy, “Have ya never shoed a horse before?” That was in the autumn of 2006 and I’ve rarely missed a show since then.

Stuart and Tam have that magic ability to welcome anyone into their studio and bring out the best in a guest. Stuart’s intellectual insights parried by Tam’s lightning quick comedic timing and encyclopedia of jokes makes this a highlight of my commuting week. Ya can repeat it but ya cannae beat it!

I try not to miss

Funny, smart, Scottish what’s not to like. As a born and raised Detroiter I miss a joke or two never a show. I laugh and learn. Top 10 podcast on my list.
