First, Max Charles and Lili Gu come by to talk about the massive BIPOC highlight reel to be released next week and delve into the details of how these things get made and how they hope this will help the ultimate community rise to the current moment.

The madness of a long, hot summer without ultimate is really setting in, as Pat and Tad ponder whether not having tournaments to play this year is an opportunity for personal growth, or like being forsaken by an uncaring god. Maybe both?

The guys take stock of everyone’s chosen ultimate methadone, Disc Golf. Does it scratch the itch for ultimate die hards? Also, Pat commits to eating a lot of eggs for a good cause and weirdo Redskin...

With college season in full swing, the STF guys get on their low horses and program-shame anyone who had the luxury to play on a team with O and D-lines or travel cross country for tournaments.

All that, plus an announcement about an auction and an update on the injury bracket.

The STF guys had a real show planned, but the madness of the offseason took hold and things went off the rails pretty quickly. They touch on winter league, the unwritten rules of playing in gloves, and how to #liveultimate on Thanksgiving in between deep introspection on barbershop masculinity, waiting in line for the bathroom at bars, guys who bring their own weights to the gym, and "not getting punked" as a lifestyle.
