Agreeing Loudly Coast to Coast

My name is Jered Weber and my friends Troy, Bill, Pat and I thought starting a podcast would be a good way to stay in touch as we spread across the country (San Francisco, Minneapolis and New York City). Was this a mistake? Probably. Are we still moving forward? Definitely. So join us as we agree loudly about a variety of topics including politics, pop culture and sports.

Perhaps even more shocking, Pat has his own thoughts about the professional wrestling's biggest show of the year. 

After purging his system from sports entertainment, Pat leads a vibrant sports discussion that includes his thoughts on the NFL/NYT battle royal, Iggygate, and a round of MLB predictions that are filled with plenty of homer picks.
