On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a few thoughts on Team USA Basketball's loss to the France in the Olympics. The fact that several players are already reportedly fed up with head coach Gregg Popovich's offense is not a great sign moving forward. If things continue to go sideways during this tournament, Pop could get the axe. Later, Jason gives us a full breakdown of the tennis tournament he played in over...

On today’s episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the NFL’s new COVID-19 vaccination protocols. The NFL isn’t mandating that every player get vaccinated, but the protocols are written in such a way that it would behoove you to do so. If guys like DeAndre Hopkins would rather retire altogether than get the jab, then that’s their prerogative. Nobody can force you to do anything that you’re not comfortable doing. As i...

 On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a deep dive into Giannis Antetokounmpo's assertion that he did things the 'hard' way by staying in Milwaukee rather than joining a Super Team. We love Giannis, but he's dead wrong on this one. Staying in your comfort zone in a city where you are adored is easy; Joining a Super Team and accepting the ridicule and pressure that comes along with it is hard. Not every...

On today’s episode, Jason kicks things off with a full breakdown of the Milwaukee Bucks’ NBA Finals series victory over the Phoenix Suns. First, kudos to Giannis Antetokounmpo for putting on an epic performance in Game 6. With this ring and Finals MVP award, the Greek Freak has joined some elite company in NBA History. That said, as great as his performance was, let’s pump the brakes on all the Shaquille O’Neal comparisons. Shaq wa...

On today's episode, ESPN basketball analyst Fran Fraschilla swings by for an extended conversation on a myriad of hoops topics, including: how the condensed NBA season has played a role in Team USA's struggles so far in exhibition play, why the 2024 Olympic Games will be a much better indicator of where American basketball stands on the global scale, why JaVale McGee could be more impactful than you think during the Olympic...

On today’s episode, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a quick defense of LeBron James' new movie - 'Space Jam: A New Legacy'. Is it a great movie? No, but it wasn't supposed to be. Is it surprising that the critics mostly hated it? No, but it wasn't made for them. The target demographic seems to love it, and that's all that matters in situations like this. Later, the guys share their thoughts on ...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the cancellation of Friday's USA Basketball exhibition game against Australia stemming from Bradley Beal's positive COVID test. With the Delta variant running rampant around the world, are we sure at this point that the Olympic Games will go off without a hitch? And assuming they do, who should Team USA call up to replace Beal on the roster? Anthony Davi...

On today’s episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on the Milwaukee Bucks’ victory over the Phoenix Suns in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Khris Middleton had 40 for the Bucks and Devin Booker dropped 42 for the Suns, but the big story to come out of the game was the underwhelming play of the Point God Chris Paul. Paul had five more turnovers in Game 4 – including a critical one in the final minutes – and had arguably hi...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a little story time related to his Saturday morning FOX Sports Radio show. The path to radio, television and podcast glory wasn't linear, to say the least. Let's just hope that whoever takes over the Saturday show cares about it as much as Jason did for the past 6 years. Later, The Athletic NBA insider Joe Vardon swings by to discuss his viral back-and-forth with Gregg Pop...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick thought on the Major League Baseball Home Run Derby. Pete Alonso went on to win the event but the story of the night - as has been the case all season - was Angels superstar Shohei Ohtani. Few players can captivate the imagination of the casual fan quite like Ohtani. Later, Producer Rob G joins the show for a deep dive into what's gone wrong for Team USA Basketball. Th...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by breaking a little personal news - the Saturday morning FOX Sports Radio show is coming to an end. With this podcast in full swing and his role expanding at FOXSports.com, it just wouldn't have been fair to the fans to continue putting together a show that was clearly lower on the list of priorities. Next, Jason takes a quick verbal victory lap following Conor McGregor's firs...

On today's show, Jason and Producer Rob G kick things off with a thorough breakdown of the Phoenix Suns' Game 2 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals. Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges were sensational, but the Suns lost yet another key bench contributor to injury and almost gave the game away late. With Giannis Antetokounmpo rounding back into form following that gruesome leg injury last week, if the ...

On today's podcast, Jason kicks things off with a quick update on the Summer of Soccer. England got a big win in one of the wildest finishes you'll ever see on the pitch, but that pales in comparison to what we've got coming up on Saturday: Messi vs. Neymar - Argentina vs. Brazil - for the Copa America Championship. If you weren't a soccer fan already, tune in on Saturday and I promise you'll become one. Later, ...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off by sharing his thoughts on Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks. The Suns were the better team coming in so it wasn't all that surprising to see them flex their muscle in Game 1. Even with Giannis Antetokounmpo making a miraculous return to the floor following his gruesome knee injury last week, the Bucks looked outmatched; Almost everything wen...

On today's episode, Jason kicks things off with a quick explanation as to why he was physically incapable of dropping a post-4th of July pod on Monday. Sorry, America, but not even the great J-Mac is immune to the aftereffects of a good holiday cocktail. Next, Producer Rob G joins the show to help discuss the bombshell story over the weekend centered around ESPN personalities Rachel Nichols and Maria Taylor. A private conversat...

On today's episode, Jason and Producer Rob G share their thoughts on the Milwaukee Bucks' blowout victory over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final. Unfortunately, without Giannis Antetokounmpo and Trae Young on the floor, the game looked more like a preseason game than a playoff game. Nobody is tuning in to watch Khris Middleton and John Collins; The NBA is a star-driven league and this series is dev...

In a postseason riddled with injuries, no team benefitted more than the Finals-bound Suns. Chris Paul, Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton all had their moments, for sure, but let’s not pretend like the Suns’ path to the Finals was all that treacherous. Los Angeles Lakers superstar Anthony Davis missed time in round 1, Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray missed all of round 2, Utah Jazz all-star Mike Conley missed most of round 3 and Los A...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
