Ultimate frisbee is growing fast and there are riches to be had - supposedly. Patrick Stegemoeller and Brian Kibler look at some of the people, organizations, and businesses like the Rochester Dragons that got swept up in the excitement, energy, and optimism of an era where it seemed like the sport was one step away from making the leap to mainstream legitimacy, and the reality of what these schemes really meant.

Patrick Stegemoeller and Brian Kibler introduce us to the world of the Rochester Dragons in this first installment of Huck and Hope! They talk about why the Rochester Dragons, a team you may vaguely remember existing anonymously towards the bottom of the AUDL a decade ago, may be the key to understanding how ultimate, the semi-pro leagues, and America got to be where it is in 2023.

You can access the entire show with an Ultiworld mi...

It's Wildwood and STF somehow made it to 150 episodes, so what better way to celebrate than with a wildly indulgent episode about sun, sand, good times, and staring into the void? Before they get to Wildwood, Tad reports from the second leg of the Mid-Atlantic Party Tournament Triple Crown Tour, aka Mars. Then it's down to the boardwalk, Bolero, and beyond as the guys look at Wildwood from every angle with listener emails, dissect ...

Pat and Tad break up their summer sabbatical for an emergency mini-pod on the US losing to Germany at World Games. Who is to blame? What can be done? And most importantly, how fun is it to lob cranky backseat driver complaints? (Very fun) They also cover a lucrative bet Pat made on the game that needs to be adjudicated in the court of public opinion, and Tad guesses which other World Games sports are real and which are some nonsen...

With D-I Nationals returning to Milwaukee, Pat and Tad recall the past two eventful Nationals in the place some have called the Paris of southeastern Wisconsin. On the field and off the field, from the conception of the show in 2015 to their inadvertent stay in an actual murder house in 2018, Nationals in Milwaukee is a key part of the STF tapestry. Also, they throw baseless accusations around about how UVA got food poisoning in 20...

Pat and Tad do their best to cover everything, everywhere, all at once. They talk the AUDL's 10th anniversary season and reflect back on the wild early days of the league, get into the college Regionals pick em' bet they made with Deep Look, and chat about what it is like to ru...

Pat and Tad lament what has become of them as they both missed Fools Fest this year and turn to some first hand reports from listeners of a particularly antagonistic tournament party DJ.

Then the guys assess the college scene and debate what should be done about New England men only getting two bids despite having six top teams. Their answers may shock and surprise you! (And unsurprisingly involves a story from the late 2000’s Metr...

In this grab bag episode, Pat and Tad touch on everything from Winter League finals to a college freshman listener’s first High Tide. Then the guys welcome Edward Stephens on to break down, in excruciating detail, the event of the college season thus far: Mamabird gaslighting that dude on Brown into thinking he caught his own throw in the SMI championship.

Pat and Tad are super excited to have Jamie Houssian and Dan Schneider from the University of California at Santa Barbara on the program to talk about "I Bleed Black," the groundbreaking documentary charting UCSB's journey to Nationals in 2001. They discuss making the film, go into detail on what college ultimate was like twenty years ago, and how they live with the legacy of the film today. Plus, some utterly shameless slander of ...

Pat and Tad nurse the wounds of some near-miss Super Bowl bets, forcing them to confront how sports gambling hollows out one of the last pure pleasures in life. Fun! They also recap some of the sideline shenanigans from Florida Warm Up, including a BYU player doing the coolest thing anyone has ever done in a game. Then, they discuss a listener email that asks them to consider a probably unhealthy temptation: If you could go back in...

Pat and Tad begin the new year by looking back a couple weeks to the weird 2021 College Nationals, with some aged takes that were mildly relevant two weeks ago. How should we feel about this whole event? Do these UNC titles count the same as the rest? How did the Metro East do? Did Pitt men's really not make the bracket?
