Episode 271: BOOM! Dave delves into his trip to San Antonio with Dr. John Carlos to speak to the Gregg Popovich and the Spurs about the 1968 Olympics. Dave was impressed by the intensity with which battle-tested champions practiced and how much the entire organization has bought into what the coaching staff is selling them. Dave and Coach discuss the recent media spat between Stephen A. Smith and Kevin Durant and what it can tell us about the relationship between players and the media. Dave talks to Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck, the director & writer duo of the new poker film, Mississippi Grind featuring Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds. It’s also the last show for Daniel “D.C. Dan” Baker behind the board.

Episode 268: BOOM! It’s our NFL Season Preview, but first Dave discusses the great Williams’ sisters after their recent U.S. Open Quarterfinal matchup and the NYPD mistakenly handcuffing former #4-ranked player, James Blake. Dave goes through his “10 Things I Think I Think While I Drink” and Mark tells him if his predictions will come true or not. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper preview without Dave and Mark making their Playoff picks — the two only agree on three of the eight divisions — and major award candidates. It could be a good year for quarterbacks who ply their trade in Pennsylvania.
