Hyphen Nation — Episode #31: Podcasting 101

Who knew I could talk so long about podcasting alone?



Just like Reggie Miller admitted he pushed off of Michael Jordan in the 1998 Eastern Conference Finals, THE WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST is full of uncalled fouls. Not really, but I do spend most of the episode detailing how I got into podcasting and the behind the scenes of the show. Then I talk a little sports before I give a verdict in the MJ v Prince argument. And I explain why this year’s Royal Rumble was better than what most people thought. Outta nowhere like a RKO.

I really need to get around to Run The Jewels…


Bernard King. Steph Curry. Nolan Ryan when he played for the Angels. Hyphen Nation, THE WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST, has reached it’s 30th episode. As promised, welcome to the first ever Q&A show, where I answer all the questions. A lot of wrestling questions but still, all the questions. Question MVPs go to Marcus, Errick, and Mike. We’ll do it again real soon, I had a lot of fun with this one.

Sad Drake

It hasn’t been a month and I’m broken. With all the terrible news that comes out of DC every single day plus the confirmation of DeVos, I’m struggling. I’ve lived with an overwhelming sense of dread since the Inauguration but the past few days have been too much. The tweets, Pence’s deciding vote, Senator Warren being silenced… I just want to disappear into a dark hole for awhile.

It’s also February so I always deal with the threat of seasonal depression. I haven’t had a bad case in several years but I feel like all the warning signs of it coming are here. My mood absolutely stinks and I can’t shake it; even things that normally brighten me up aren’t helping (other than Aaliyah); and my patience is at zero.

I struggle sometimes to understand those who deal with depression daily. If it’s anything like I feel right now, I completely understand why constant depression is so crippling. The second season of You’re The Worst dealt with this, where a depressed Gretchen told her boyfriend Jimmy…

Tom Brady Made A Deal With Mephisto

Only two quarterbacks in the National Football League scare me when they’re behind: Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady. You can throw Aaron Rodgers in there too but unless he’s playing the Raiders, a Green Bay victory matters little to me. I hate the Patriots and I mega loathe the Steelers.

As time ticked on in the second half of Super Bowl LI, I kept waiting for that moment when the Patriots would start creeping back in it. Another score in the second half might have been enough for the Falcons but it never came. As the points started going up for NE, I felt sick with worry. I made a comment to Anthony, my long suffering Cleveland sports fan friend:This is as bad as Game 7.But the Cavs had won Game 7 and it was one of the most important sporting events I’ve ever watched in my lifetime. Now I looked on in horror as everything went right for Brady and the Patriots and the Falcons just continuously shot themselves in the foot.

New England won the coin toss and I knew it was the ballgame. Br…

I Have To Remember

In these crazy times, it’s not just about everything being a black versus white thing. Most of us are trying to resist in our own way, and even if something is taken from a black person by a white person, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad thing. #Resist
