Different football show

Great show, these guys are hilarious and petty. Not your average football show by any means. Well worth the listen. Favorite segments are td or turnover and the rants at the end of the show. Give it a try!

Informative, Highlight Entertaining, and Slightly Slanderous

I've been listening to and enjoying the show for a little over half a year. Kenneth and Pete know their stuff -- their college and professional football knowledge is borderline encyclopedic. But their knowledge far exceeds just being able to quickly recite facts -- these guys provide some of the best analysis out there. Touchdowns & Tangents also provides a good mix of sports and other forms of entertainment, with insightful social commentary mixed in, so there's something for everyone. Lastly, a significant portion of the "Tangents" portion of the show is pure comedy, like Kenneth's highly relatable bus take from last week's episode. Kepp up the great work!

Best podcast you never heard
