04 Jun Basketball
Hang time! This week Kyle and Matthew sit down with comedian/sports writer Dave Schilling (Roundball Rock podcast) to talk about basketball, causing Kyle to realize he knows more about the sport than he thought. They discuss the white Jewish origins of the “thinking man’s game,” along with the culture inside basketball fandom and the connection between the NBA and fashion. They also talk about basketball video games, the unspoken alcoholism in Air Bud, and ’90s team logos. Plus, they answer hard-hitting questions: Clippers vs. Lakers? Do pelicans eat other birds? And can a dog play basketball? This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate. Give yourself a geeky gift this month!
