The NBA season is just around the corner, the New York Giants are an unstoppable juggernaut, LeBron's hair comes and goes as it pleases, Derek Jeter ends his career in style, Tony Stewart gets away with murder because the victim smoked pot a month ago, and to top it all off it’s James' birthday!
That’s right, Episode 34 is a “big one.” As big as Charles Oakley's muscles? YOU be the (fourth) judge!
Episode 33 puts the guys in a Patrick Ewing state of mind. Join them as they travel back in time to discuss Biggie Smalls, THE DUNK, Chris Childs, Charles Smith, Charlie Ward — the list goes on and on. It’s literally ENDLESS!
Other topics include The New York Giants' march to 14-2, a Ty Segall live show, teachers sexually assaulting students at Brad and James’ high school alma mater, Alanis Morissette and MORE!
The boys are on short rest this week as they attempt to get back on their classic Sunday-or-Monday-or-maybe-Tuesday-if-shit’s-fucked-up schedule, but that doesn’t stop them from giving it their all.
Join them as they discuss Jim Dolan’s musical career, USA Basketball’s dominance, the New York Giants' march to #ohandsixteen, offensive Urban Outfitters sweatshirts, Howard Stern and MORE!
Do you want to know where Carmelo Anthony is going to sign? So do we! Do you want the Big 3 in Miami to break up? Oh my god, we do too! Do you think the Wimbledon final was majestic? That makes at least two of us!
ALSO THIS WEEK: The Fourth of July SUCKS compared to George Harrison’s masterpiece All Things Must Pass! The Oscar Pistorius reenactment video is COMPLETELY INSANE! And fine, we’ll say it, Seinfeld is NO LONGER FUNNY!
Of course, as always, we discuss much, much more. Join us!
This week in sports: Jason Kidd's miscalculated maneuverings, Phil Jackson's bold restructuring of the Knicks’ roster, NBA Draft observations, Pau Gasol free agency rumors, Tanaka’s greatness, the Yankees’ shittiness, World Cup, and more!.
This week in grab bag: bok choy vs Chinese broccoli, The Act of Killing, the fleshlight iPad holder, subway breasts, and more!
Are Donald Sterling’s apologies sincere? What were Solange and Jay-Z really arguing about? Where should you pee in a urinal to avoid splashback? Have you ever finished the wasabi that comes with your sushi order? The answer to these questions and many more on this week’s installment of The Fourth Judge
Join us, won’t you?
DING DONG MIKE WOODSON IS DEAD (as coach of the New York Knicks — we wish him a long and fulfilling life).
After wallowing in schadenfreude for half an hour or so the boys discuss War on Drugs, Ratking, a very special Who Ya Got?, Easter Pie, and that rapper who cut his dick off and thew himself off a building.
It’s been a wild week for New York sports, but don’t worry, Brad and James are here to elucidate the issues of the day with grace, aplomb, wit, and sensitivity. The Knicks are officially DUNZO. Eli Manning is embroiled in WHITE HOT CONTROVERSY. CC Sabathia doesn’t LOOK THAT SKINNY. What should you think about these developments? BRAD AND JAMES WILL TELL YOU!
In the second half of the podcast the boys review Avey Tare’s new album Enter the Slasher House and Mobb Deep’s triple-CD money grab/”reissue” of The Infamous.
Also — James sings a bunch of Janet Jackson songs. You should check it out.
Knicks’ playoff chances? FUCKED! Phil Jackson's tenure as President of the Knicks? A SMASHING SUCCESS! Stevie Nicks documentary on Netflix? HILARIOUS (for about half an hour)!
As always we cover a metric ton of riveting, hilarious, informative content, but this week’s episode is particularly philosophical. Check it out if you want to live your best life. Check it out if you want to laugh. Check it out if you want to learn how to love again.
We hardly talk about the Knicks at all this week so listen to the whole thing. That’s our advice. Topics covered include:
Mac Demarco, The Men, sesame bagels, Billy Joel, “magic mushrooms”, hangovers, Fight Club, The Toadies, Jesus, healthcare reform, Rick Ross, and MORE!
This week the boys celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and their 10th episode by getting just a liiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit tipsy. Join them as they sing the praises of Phil Jackson, Madlib, and the Dyson Air Blade. Help them figure out if Oscar Pistorius is South Africa’s OJ Simpson, and humor them as they suggest that Cher covering the songs from The Crow soundtrack in the style of Sheryl Crow is a hilarious concept.
It’s been a wild week for the Knicks. Will Phil Jackson join the squad as President of Basketball Operations? Does the 3-game win streak mean anything? Is somebody eating a sandwich on the end of the bench? LISTEN TO FIND OUT!
It’s also been a wild week for NETFLIX REVIEWS, as the guys tackle 30 for 30: June 17,1994 (boring!), Blue is the Warmest Color (titillating and well crafted!) and Shut Up and Play the Hits (pretty dece!).
They also answer reader questions in the mailbag and cover a whole host of HILARIOUS AND INFORMATIVE content. Check it out!
OMG OUR NEW EPISODE IS UP! OMGOMGOMG!
We KINDA talk about the New York Knicks (as much as we can stomach), we DEFINITELY review Schoolboy Q and Beck, and we PRACTICALLY beg Bud Light to sponsor us.
This week we are joined by NOBODY, so get ready for a healthy dose of James and Brad. Will we have other guests in the future? PROBABLY.
This week the boys welcome back NFL and NBA guru Steve “Beve” Guijarro to talk Knicks at the trade deadline and Giants at the combine.
During the Grab Bag (Skip to 40:44). James and Brad talk True Detective, HBO’s Girls, St. Vincent, Guided by Voices, and much, much more.
