64 - Trade Deadline Special
MLB's Trade Deadline is a scant six days away, and AJ Preller has shot his first arrow across the bow, taking booty from the Pirates.

Alas, we move on, and in this episode of Dad's Talking Dads, Joel, and Johnny discuss the generational greatness that is Fernando Tatis Jr, before Tony joins to take a look at potential moves to improve the team. We finish, as...

33 - I Hate Everything You Just Said (Re-released and remastered)
First off, apologies again for Johnny's audio on this one. Audacity and the Macbook were not agreeing when we recorded on 420 (refer to my previous recommendation to get a Chromebook), so his/my audio drops off in certain areas, and at one point it starts having a crackling sound like I'm recording through a phonograph. It's not ideal, but it'll be fixed by next recording.
This is an episode all mostly about starting pitching. We discuss some different trade options ranging from the obvious names to some crazy hypotheticals that turn Tony's stomach. Joel's iPad (seriously though...C...
32 - Ten Game Review
This episode was recorded on Sunday, but I could not edit it until today, therefore there are a couple outdated remarks. Please laugh at me as needed. I also used a different app to record, and I will never make that mistake again. The overall audio quality suffered, and there is quite a bit more sibilance on my "s" sounds than I would like. I will take it upon myself to execute the typical 50 lashes, and commit seppuku, as any podcast host worth his weight in Patreon gold would.
This week's episode is a review o...
