Shorties 60: Unhittable – Sidd Finch and the Tibetan Fastball

The idea of this episode was recorded before the MLB season opener was delayed. Who knows what the fuck is going on by the time this Shorty drops? Anyways. In this Shorty Drew and Bob discuss an ESPN short documentary about the greatest pitcher of all time as reported by George Plimpton. The guy’s name is Sidd Finch and he can throw a baseball at 168 mph. The Mets got him so do us a favor and don’t remember what day it was 2 days ago. More on this DEEP inside of this episode. CUM on in and Keep on Doccin’

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.
