Episode 128: 30 for 30: Jordan Rides the Bus

So it was, the end of Listener Request Month and all this listening has worn us out. Oddly enough our most requested 30 for 30 happened to be the next one in our order. How kismet. Kind of surprised that this one got so much compared to others, but who are we but submissive to your demands. You hold the whip, listener, and we need to be told one last time because Drew and Bob break down the listener requested 30 for 30 documentary “Jordan Rides the Bus” by Ron Shelton. What is the greatest basketball player to do after winning a third championship in a row. Why not retire ten days before the season starts and go try to play major league baseball? There might be more to it than that…allegedly. An odd time for any sports fan who lived through it. Sport Dork Drew and Regular Dork Bob tell the story of Michael Jordan’s sudden career change. And truly, where exactly was Richard Jewel in the summer of 1993? SRSLY

Shorties 59: Forest Man

Phew. After some of the depraved shit y’all have demanded for Listener Request Month, this requested Shorty is a welcome respite. No incest. No sociopathy that we know of. The opposite of that. It’s about compassion for the earth and environment and what one man in India can do to change an ecosystem for the better. Jadov Payeng has planted a forest on barren land in northeast India one seed at a time ever since 1979. What he has created has earned him praise all over the country, but will the politicians listen to his advice on combating erosion and climate change? I bet you can guess that last part. Ginger and Bob are discussing the short documentary “Forest Man” by William Douglas McMaster and narrated by Jitu Kalita. Roll up some trees, Doccalo. Hell Yeah. Sheeeyit.

Forest Man.

A flawless education. No need to vet.

One of the few, non-cancelled, TED Talks.

Shake it to this.

Episode 127: Stevie

Grab your snakes! Put them motherfuggers in yer pocket! Ginger and Bob took YOUR Listener Request Month request this week and what a documentary this is! Director Steve James went to go visit a former ward from the “Big Brother” 10 years later. The boy had troubles and a tragic life, and now the man is grown, wild, and dangerous. How does Steve James deal with the compulsive idiocy of a man who may have contributed to vicious cycles of abuse? You can find this requested documentary, “Stevie” by Steve James, on Tubi or Prime. There’s enough Mountain Dew in this flick to drown a small town in southern Illinois. Also…depravity. Memorable sayings. More depravity. Dancing. Peoples Changes they say. Don’t get crazy on that weed and whiskey. Keep on Doccin’

No surprise that one of the dumbest websites involves people answering each other’s questions.

Dance for me one more time.

Please dance for me again. I swear this is the last time.
