Introducing “The DEGEN-F-L Show” – A Weekly NFL Podcast For Degenerates, By Degenerates
By: Alex Marcheschi
After struggling to make it through the dog days of summer, the blog is finally starting to heat back up for football season. We’re excited to get some podcasts going, and the first show we’ll be producing is “The DEGEN-F-L Show: A Weekly NFL Podcast For Degenerates, By Degenerates.”
The model of the show will be very similar to last year’s “Two Bros One Podcast” that I did with my friend Conor Ralph from OU. Thanks to everyone who listened to that show, it was fun, especially toward the end when people were interacting with us and submitting questions. For those who didn’t listen last year, here’s what to expect…there’s one BIG change:
I will function in a host/moderator type of role with Conor bringing the fantasy advice, crude jokes and Patriots hate as per usual. However, this year we’ve brought in our friend “Boots” to be the third member of our Big Three. Boots is a former college baseball player, he lives for a nice spread and an even nicer payout, and he’s got the hot takes we need to keep the fire blazing. He’s truly one of the funniest people I’ve ever met and I’m excited to have him aboard. They both know me as “Cheese,” so be prepared to hear me addressed as such on every podcast.
We’re still not completely set on what the show will entail, but you can definitely expect:
- A quick roundup of funny notes and observations from the prior weekend’s games
- A short fantasy preview of every game, every week
- Picks against the spread for every game, every week
- Comedy segments to end the show
So far, the segments include:
Tom Petty’s “Free Money” Pick of the Week ( A Free Fallin’ Remix)
We like to have Tom bring us in for the “lock” pick of the week. The free money game is the no-brainer pick of the week.
The Poop Game of the Week
The poop game of the week is the game that’s not even worth watching, we’re here to spare your eyeballs the torture.
The Must Watch Game of the Week
The must watch game of the week might not necessarily be on Sunday or Monday Night. We like to tell the people which under the radar games will be worth watching.
Ed Werder’s Hot Take Corner
Ed has the lowkey hottest takes around. We’ll just go over what he had to say about our beloved NFL. Here’s what he’s had to offer lately:
Fantasy “Pop, Lock and Drop It” Picks
Pop – An under the radar player we expect to perform well
Lock – A reliable, safe play for the week
Drop – A good player you should bench
The Thick White Dude Game of The Week
Any game that involves Blake Bortles or Big Ben
And much, much more. It looks like the NFL show will drop every Thursday morning just in time to get you ready for the weekend. We’ll also hopefully have some 1-on-1 interviews and a Cincinnati Tri-State Football Podcast on The PUP List Podcast Network too.
Right now we have a SoundCloud profile set up for the show, you can subscribe to it here – The PUP List Podcast Network. I’m hoping to figure out how to get it on iTunes soon. Thanks for reading and tell your friends!
p.s. The Podcasts will be brought to you by the usual sponsors – Empress Chili Bridgetown and Waygr. Waygr is a Cincinnati based app to easily “place and track sports bets with friends.” They are updating the app now and it will be on the iTunes store in September.
