Long intro - We start with recapping our very interesting last few days. We show love to our boys with whom we dined and drank TOO HARD. We talk about sports obviously - duh. Danny tells a story about having to take a shit in his kitchen.


Touched on touchy subjects. Kaepernick overreaction/unfortunate event in our hometown of Cincinnati. 


Then we cheer you up! at the 33 minute mark we share an interview that Danny got in on his siesta - University of Arizona Hockey Head Coach Chad Berman!


This is a unique program in that it's a club team at a D1 school, and one of the largest schools in the nation at that. 



Say hi!

We talked about a lot of things that I will not give away in the notes. We want you to enjoy our content in audio form. 

Mitch comes on at the 25 minute mark if you get sick of our long intro. We had a few beers and aren't sorry.

Dr. Mike Sonne of The Athletic joined us in the wake of our large adult son Hunter Greene’s injury to discuss the problems with pitching arms.

Dr. Sonne is both a good boy and an actual doctor, and it was enlightening to hear him wax poetic on injury prevention, technology, and Shohei Ohtani.

Today’s episode is brought to you by Grillo’s Pickles, we shit you not.


Our guest this week is Steve Hauke of Young Heirlooms! He’s back! Steve also appeared on our very first episode more than a year ago and so much has changed!


Danny was to busy being an industry bigshot to make time for this one so Pasty, our resident drunkard guest hosted by default.


We talked all about the Cleveland Cavaliers this time! We forecasted playoff scenarios and went into detail about Kyrie Driving being a flat earther. Tyler was drunk and said “like” a record number of times and we close by talking about Young Heirlooms’ new record - “The Hammer” which is available everywhere in the ether on Friday, October 20th!


Cincinnati people - YH is celebrating their album release at the Woodward Theater in OTR on Friday, the 20th! Be there, or be a punk.


Song of the week is “Bury Me With My Hammer” and is currently available on Spotify, listen now!


We are The Media and we eat Grillo’s Pickles

Team Canada speed skater William Preudhomme came by to educate us on some truly crazy sportsball.

While we are definitely The Media, our knowledge of Olympic sports is minimal compared to our knowledge of beer brands and Cincinnati Reds outfielders of the past. This was a nice change of pace.

Be on the lookout for William in the World Cup next year.

This episode features music by Circa Waves. Danny is currently out on tour with Two Door Cinema Club and Circa Waves, and because we are The Media we are able to promote who we want. You're welcome.

Andrew Bozymowski of Capstan came by to talk all things NFL leading up to the season.

We are back after several weeks off, we took time away from enjoying our summer to bring you dweebs some fresh content. This conversation took place weeks ago but since Danny is routinely late to every possible occasion - we are presenting this episode to you now. 

In this conversation we preview the season, and get Chris' expectations with the current squad. If you are unaware - CPFC has undergone significant leadership and personnel changes that had us all excited coming into opening day - however, Palace has taken two tough losses to start the season and we are freaking out. 

We recorded a really long introduction and it was unnecessary, the interview start at the 15 minute mark. 

Questions? Complaints? We couldn't care any less but you may offer them @Nayplaypod, @SannyDamet, @NayplayTyler, @ChrisGrierson

The song of the week is called "Judy French" by White Reaper

Tyler took a break from drinking on Florida beaches to visit Danny on tour. Recorded live from Thrice's dressing room in Tampa, this episode features a slew of guests popping in that were unaware of their imminent appearance on the world's most popular podcast.
Reed Murray, drummer of Say Anything and Carrollhood, discussed some of his favorite sports performances and his love of tiki culture and cocktails.
Suge, Thrice's guitar tech, drafted his top five desserts in America.
And then, of course, we talked sports! Your two favorite podcast hosts shot the shit on the NBA Draft in typical fashion- an unrelenting assault of MOLTEN HOT TAKES. Tyler also stole one of Joe Rogan's takes and lit the world on fire in regards to the upcoming Macgregor-Mayweather fight.
This episode features music from Danny's current employer, Thrice. Get to the gig.

James joins us this week to talk all about his passion for Chicago sports! We initially had him on to barf about their draft this year, but he brought us around on the Trubisky trade. From their we talked all about how he celebrated the Cubs in the World Series last year, and Eighteen Visions' new Record "XVIII" which is out now on Rise Records!
