From Defector. Former Deadspin writers Drew Magary and David Roth should really stick to sports. Sure, their new indie sports podcast will break down the week in sports: the Mets grounding into quadruple plays, NBA players getting testy on the court and horny on Instagram, Bill Belichick cutting 80% of his roster just to keep himself interested, horrifying takes from sports talk radio that need to be broken down, etc. But these two men and their guests will have their fair share of off-the-field issues they’ll also have to address: stupid Funbag questions, bad tweets from bad people, pointless food arguments, and even less. Every week is a VERY long week these days. We could all use a little Distraction. Head to defector.com for more info.

    WE'RE BACK! WE'RE BACK!

    WE'RE BACK! WE'RE BACK!

    Drew and Roth never could stick to sports and now no one is asking them to, so...THEY'RE BACK! The guys catch up on the sports stories they didn't get to these many months, question the validity of the bay leaf as an ingredient, and try to make sense of this strange season of baseball. Plus, stupid Funbag questions! Visit defector.com to subscribe to their new site.

I missed them terribly...

I missed the Flannel Dipshit and the ALL CAPS LUNATIC very much. So good to have them back. 💕

It's about time!

I've missed the Deadcast more than anything in life since it died so suddenly. So glad you're all back.

I only subscribed to listen because direct injection is not an option

Definitely among the top 3 or 4 most noteworthy formerly-Deadspin podcasts in the game right now. These guys really elevate questions about pooping, condiments, and 45 to another level. Only listen to this if you can handle the smartest people you know having the dumbest conversations you can imagine. 10/10 for listenability and dissociate-ability (sic) from our current reality
