If you can make me laugh at 5 AM

when all about me are not then you are the man my friend.

Joe, Michael, Ellen, and friends are radio magic. I love them so much I would draft their discarded, broken pop sockets.

Crave Those Crazy Squares!

Despite being the least information-dense podcast out there, The Poscast is quite possibly the greatest piece of entertainment ever created by man. Joe Posnanski and Michael Schur have the type of easy rapport that only comes from years of annoying each other with insane opinions.

How do you know how much you'll enjoy hearing two dudes argue about the proper way to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich until you've heard them do it, in painstaking detail?!? You don't, so stop putting on airs. 1 great sportswriter/biographer + 1 great TV writer/showrunner = 1 transcendent Poscast.

This PosCast Gives Me Hope

I discovered this just as the Coronavirus and stay-at-home orders got started, and it’s become my comfort listen. Seriously listening to Joe and Mike make predictions in 2015 or drafting Taylor Swift songs gives me life.

Thanks guys.

Btw...you didn’t mention in your first Rona ep with Nick Offerman that Mike drafted a viral pandemic as the second biggest fear...and that he’d want Nick to be has pandemic buddy. Not sure what this means, but I pray Mike Schur is never mad at me.
