It’s the end of the week and we’re talking about the week that was.
Once again, somehow, the WFNY crew has given me control of today’s ‘While We’re Waiting.” I’m not sure what Michael Bode was thinking, but, since I’ve got the reigns, why not go crazy. The Cleveland Indians are going to be contenders for the World Series regardless, but they could make a few fairly easy moves
Kicking back and discussing Corey Kluber’s historical place with the Cleveland Indians should he win a second Cy Young Award with WFNY’s Jim Pete. Wait, what? Yes, you read that name correctly.
New writers, virtual reality, soccer, and Pearl Jam? Perfect for a Friday.
Happy Tuesday WFNY! It’s mostly happy, anyway. The Browns remembering how to be the Browns again was awfully frustrating, and pessimistically it was perhaps enlightening. Because really, does anyone know who the real Browns are? This has to be the most bipolar football team I can recall. You have the first halves of the first
It may be January 20th, but Andrew and I just got to our top music of 2013. We used Andrew’s top ten, played some short clips, and then I unleashed some of my favorites at the end in a less-structured way. For both of us, 2013 wasn’t so much a top-heavy year for music, but
Craig and Andrew talk new music including their own insecurities about darlings of critics.

I didn’t cry, but I also wouldn’t have dared speak aloud in those moments as the Tribe were bouncing
Tom Reed is a great reporter and always a really thoughtful podcast guest, so I wanted to get his take on the Browns trade, the mood in Berea following the trade and what it all means for the future. Tanking and how the idea of it ever came to be How did the Browns do
Every now and again we like to talk music at WFNY. Andrew and I are huge fans of Nine Inch Nails and we both had an urge to talk about the latest from Trent Reznor and also how it fits into his career arc. The first good album since The Fragile With Teeth was a
When the going gets tough, the Cleveland Twitterverse helps the Browns replace Bon Jovi to help kick off the 2013 NFL season. Will the concert be cancelled for good? Will an alternate act be brought in to help sell it? Don’t say that we aren’t doing our part to help. Oh and it’s probably not
In the latest of our episodes discussing music, Craig and Andrew decided to take some time to talk about our favorite albums of all time. As always, these are just our own personal picks and not so much a declaration of the universal best albums of all time. With that in mind, we thus implore
Forgive me for bleeding onto this blog, but sometimes it’s just what we have to do when things warrant an emotional response. And, as I recently told a friend in an e-mail, I know that in general, asking OSU fans to give me a break about something Michigan-related is like, uh, how do you say,
