Soo glad the Poscast is back!
Joe is not only one of my favorite sports writers, He is easily one of my favorite writers. Listening to The Poscast offers a unique view of Joe's personality and thought process.
Bring on more abstraction!
Episode #4 was great, just like the previous 3. Would have liked to hear a reference to Buzz Lightyear's line, "To infinity, and beyond!" in the discussion on infinity and as an example of a perfectly written line.
The Poscast is the best
Any day there's a new Poscast is the best day. Can't get enough of these two. The sports discussions are intelligent while still being accessible for casual fans, and the drafts are incredibly funny. So glad this is back.
