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.
Let It Rip
It's Wildwood and STF somehow made it to 150 episodes, so what better way to celebrate than with a wildly indulgent episode about sun, sand, good times, and staring into the void? Before they get to Wildwood, Tad reports from the second leg of the Mid-Atlantic Party Tournament Triple Crown Tour, aka Mars. Then it's down to the boardwalk, Bolero, and beyond as the guys look at Wildwood from every angle with listener emails, dissect beer garden etiquette, and crown the best team name of Wildwood 2022. It's arguably the richest and most compelling episode yet.

The World's Game
Pat and Tad break up their summer sabbatical for an emergency mini-pod on the US losing to Germany at World Games. Who is to blame? What can be done? And most importantly, how fun is it to lob cranky backseat driver complaints? (Very fun) They also cover a lucrative bet Pat made on the game that needs to be adjudicated in the court of public opinion, and Tad guesses which other World Games sports are real and which are some nonsense Pat made up.

It's hot as hell and we love it. Summer is officially here, and after discussing some of the scandalous moments of summer leagues past, STF has an important message for those of you who may have been wronged in your summer league pursuits. You may be entitled to compensation! Call today! Pat kicked off the summer at Windmill this past weekend, and has plenty to say about the ecstatic experience of the tournament, crazy European team rituals, and the truly confounding band that played the tournament party. All that plus Simon Pollock, your favorite ex-frisbee writer's favorite ex-frisbee writer, stops by to deliver a guest trash in TTF.
Pat and Tad welcome Ravi Vasudevan of the Eurozone podcast onto the program to preview the return of Europe’s legendary Windmill tournament. It’s Pat’s first time going -- what does he need to know to survive the weekend? The guys also breakdown College Nationals and read an email from a PT about weird patient stories.
Back to Milwaukee
With D-I Nationals returning to Milwaukee, Pat and Tad recall the past two eventful Nationals in the place some have called the Paris of southeastern Wisconsin. On the field and off the field, from the conception of the show in 2015 to their inadvertent stay in an actual murder house in 2018, Nationals in Milwaukee is a key part of the STF tapestry. Also, they throw baseless accusations around about how UVA got food poisoning in 2015. Discerning minds want to know.
Many Things, Most Places, Nowish
After a brief hiatus, STF is back. It's a busy time on the ultimate calendar, with college Regionals, pro seasons, and club tryouts all kicking off at once. Pat and Tad do their best to cover everything, everywhere, all at once. They talk the AUDL's 10th anniversary season and reflect back on the wild early days of the league, get into the college Regionals pick em' bet they made with Deep Look, and chat about what it is like to run club tryouts. Also, thoughts on the end of an era on Ultimate Twitter with the Being Ulti guy moving on, and also some elk stuff. Oh yeah, there is elk stuff.
I love this podcast, But we need more Rumspringer oriented content. Nobody really cares about any other aspect of frisbee culture. Thank you.
Basically the best worst thing there is.
