A podcast for those who like politicking, fishing, golfing, eating and boozing. And, generally, just talking.
The McFeely Mess: Tammy Swift turns the tables on Mike and delves deep into his psyche
Forum columnist and reporter Tammy Swift joins host Mike McFeely and turns the tables. Tammy asked if she could be the one asking the questions to learn more about Mike. He agreed. So Tammy fires away. Does Mike think he has a large ego? What's one thing about him that would surprise people? What does he fear? It's like a therapy session, in podcast form.
The McFeely Mess: Dom Izzo on NDSU's basketball attendance
WDAY-TV sportscaster Dom Izzo joins podcast host Mike McFeely to talk about the pair's "Drive For Five (Thousand)" campaign to attract 5,000 fans to the North Dakota State vs. North Dakota basketball games Feb. 24 in Fargo.
There likely won't be anywhere near 5,000 fans for either game, but the guys ask the question:
Why is basketball attendance for the men's team dwindling and what can be done to boost the number of fans at women's games?
The McFeely Mess: Denver columnist Sean Keeler on Deion Sanders being 'a false prophet' for Colorado football
Denver Post sports columnist Sean Keeler joins podcast host Mike McFeely to chat about one of North Dakota State's opponents this fall, the University of Colorado. Keeler recently wrote a column calling Colorado head coach Deion Sanders — you might have heard of him — "a false prophet, the Bruce Lee of B.S., Harold Hill in designer shades."
Keeler and McFeely talk about the column, the reaction to it, and the upcoming matchup between the historically powerful FCS team in NDSU and the upstart and very popular FBS team in Colorado. It is sure to be a game watched intently both nationally because of Prime Time and regionally because the Bison get another chance to play an FBS Power Five team.
The McFeely Mess: Eric Peterson on NDSU's QB recruit, new Bison coaches and MSUM basketball
Forum sportswriter Eric Peterson joins podcast host Mike McFeely to talk about North Dakota State football's latest quarterback recruit Jacob Kilzer, the addition of three new assistant coaches and this year's great success of Minnesota State University Moorhead's men's basketball team.
The McFeely Mess: Clay Jenkinson on America swirling down the drain
Noted Bismarck, N.D., author, historian and humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson joins host Mike McFeely to discuss, mostly, the sorry state of the American republic. The United States is in the hurt bag because of an electorate (mostly on the right) that is stuck in its partisan fantasy land and politicians (mostly on the right) who won't push back on Trump.
Jenkinson is the principal behind Listening to America (formerly The Thomas Jefferson Hour), a weekly podcast/radio program, newsletter, and website LTAmerica.org dedicated to "traveling less visited byways and taking time to see this immense, extraordinary country with fresh eyes while listening to the many voices of America’s past, present, and future."
The McFeely Mess: Tammy Swift on dealing with her mother's illness and writing about it
Forum columnist and business reporter Tammy Swift joins host Mike McFeely to talk about several things, but mostly about columns she's written about her elderly mother's illness. Tammy's columns have been deeply personal, opening the door to thinking about her mom's mortality and her own.
NDSU coverage is great- everything else should frighten you
I believe that Mcfeely is among the most level headed NDSU football talking heads. Interesting reads and thoughtful insights regarding football.
Regarding ANYTHING else…. Run. Run away fast. To be an interesting cultural commentator, you have to be able to call balls and strikes fairly. It’s the hallmark of intellectual and honest journalism. McFeely is the living breathing antithesis of honest journalism. As dishonest as the day is long, and the political gaslighting is breathtaking.
Taking his political playbook straight from big brother in 1984, mcfeely gaslights his readers and listeners into believing 2+2=5. Once you have been brainwashed sufficiently, McFeely whispers “ 2+2 doesn’t equal 5, it’s whatever the democrat party says it is”.
