The Distraction: A Defector Podcast

SUBSCRIBE

From Defector. Former Deadspin writers Drew Magary and David Roth should really stick to sports. Sure, their new indie sports podcast will break down the week in sports: the Mets grounding into quadruple plays, NBA players getting testy on the court and horny on Instagram, Bill Belichick cutting 80% of his roster just to keep himself interested, horrifying takes from sports talk radio that need to be broken down, etc. But these two men and their guests will have their fair share of off-the-field issues they’ll also have to address: stupid Funbag questions, bad tweets from bad people, pointless food arguments, and even less. Every week is a VERY long week these days. We could all use a little Distraction. Head to defector.com for more info.

Drew and Roth never could stick to sports and now no one is asking them to, so...THEY'RE BACK! The guys catch up on the sports stories they didn't get to these many months, question the validity of the bay leaf as an ingredient, and try to make sense of this strange season of baseball. Plus, stupid Funbag questions! Visit defector.com to subscribe to their new site.
