The richest, most compelling podcast about ultimate to date, giving center stage to the attitude, extraordinary stories, and peripheral weirdness that makes ultimate its own. Hosted by Tad Wissel and Patrick Stegemoeller.
Sin The Fields: The Hex -- A Revolution or Complete Nonsense?
On the week that would have seen Pat and Tad convalescing after Nocturnal Decisions instead sees the STF guys get into the hottest not-so-new thing in ultimate: The Hex Offense. Is it the way of the future or just some trumped up European hipster b******t? Pat and Tad look to both sides of the Atlantic for answers, and weigh in themselves. All that plus deciding the stakes of the ten year bet, introducing a new member of the STF family, and bringing some heat on T/T/F.
Sin The Fields: Eurotrash
It’s an intercontinental pod crossover spectacular as STF welcomes Ravi and Liam from Eurozone to the program. They discuss the differences between European and American party tournaments, and give recommendations for tournaments that post-COVID American ultimate players should check out.
All that, plus a very special Eurocentric T/T/F.
Sin The Fields: A Requiem for the Metro East
It's an all Metro East show this week as Pat and Tad peel back the layers on one of the defining questions of their lives: Is there a method to the madness of the Metro East? To get to the bottom of this, they bring in two heavy hitter guests from the annals of Metro East lore: coach Bryan Jones and the Metro East's lone Callahan winner Lindsey Goldsmith-Markey. There may be no bottom to the Metro East, but if there is, this is the group to find it. There is all that plus a 10 year bet, some dad content, and an all Metro East TTF.
STF Special: Betting $15,000 In Gold On The Future Of The Republic
Isaac Saul -- PoNY Captain, Pitt alum, notable heckler -- bet Frank Huguenard $15,000 in gold that Joe Biden will get inaugurated. He comes on STF to fill Pat and Tad in on all the details of this somehow real wager (and a possibly weirder almost bet that nearly went down).

Sin The Fields: The STF Holiday Party Spectacular
Pat and Tad are snowed in at the STF Subscribers Only Lounge over the holidays. Luckily, several friends are on the way to save their lives, and more importantly, the life of the STF Holiday Party.

Sin The Fields: Lucky Number 7?
Following USAU's big announcement, Pat and Tad take a break from staring into the void of Christmas this year to look forward to some actual ultimate that might be played at some point, specifically college ultimate that might be played by 25 year old adults in their seventh year of eligibility. They also discuss the distressing state of online ultimate culture and react to the breaking vaccine news.

Basically the best worst thing there is.
Gornado, not appreciated in its own time.
Everyone is a genius in their own specific thing. Pat and Tad are geniuses at the psychology of people who waste their prime years. They understand the mind of the slap, the career league captain whose self-worth is tied to their drafting potential, the man-children whose parents would be shocked at the frequency of their mostly-accepted public nudity. It is bonkers that they are in the same segment consciously the least and most rational voices on social and ultimate issues. I recommend the pod to everyone who will listen, but I also would trust Pad and Tat to make the wrong decision if my life was at stake.
Show or drug? 👍
I listen to this is the Democratic Republic of Congo, where life is crazy. I use this to help me forget my problems and laugh hysterically, which also helps with stress. I guess it’s like a drug but with much more manageable side effects. Thank you for providing this important public service.
