In which @beeso of Lantanaland and @DrYobbo of the World of Bollocks attempt to further the cause of human discourse by diluting the overall quality of white male contributions thereto. Is it a meta-satire of cliche-heavy sports punditry? Is it a subversion of generational stereotypes around music, media, pop culture and the atrophying effect of age? Is it just another pair of washed-up flogs with a podcast? NO. It's another pair of washed-up flogs with TWO podcasts...
#BALLS: Mostly sport, out every weekend. Think Roy and HG, with more booze and far, far worse takes. May contain #NBAfeels.
#BALLS After Dark: Mostly everything that's not sport, mostly harmless, out mid-week each week. Featuring our After Dark New Music Challenge, where we review two brand new albums and a well-aged classic each week.
NFL openers, AFL and NRL finals, Twiggy's end game, the Rockets get sold, the best coach you've never heard of and Australia v America.
The ArsenalFanTVification of EPL takes, FC Barcelona In Crisis (more than a club in crisis), test cricket upsets and lots of womens' sport. No not you Winx you're a fucking horse remember.
Meg Mac, Dizzee Rascal, Beastie Boys Classic Album Royal Rumble, Beeso tries to kill his manflu with two-stroke under medical supervision (he does, indeed, have the ill communication) and the Doc has SFX in full effect. Spotify playlists in the Omny shownotes. BALLS and BALLS After Dark are also on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/balls-with-beeso-dr-yobbo/id1209722376
League coaching vacancies, the Kyrie-IT trade, NBA schedules, Joyride at Whistler, European football and unnecessary sound effects. Subscribe and review on iTunes for the chance to win the Gold Coast Titans coaching job for a year (runners-up get two years)
The Doc breaks the emergency glass and gets Adamhfoto on to talk new Strypes, old Pantera, man hands, pre-wedding music and Dimebag versus douchebags. Beeso's back next week to argue about Dizzee Rascal, Meg Mac and the Beastie Boys. Subscribe to the pod on iTunes and listen to our album review playlist and 2017 mixtape on Spotify.
In lieu of a guest host with a functioning human voice and/or the ability to correctly record a podcast with someone fitting that description, the Doc talks to himself about NBA scheduling, 1½ weeks of the EPL, cricket, Bledisloe and Crankworx. We're back next week, communicable diseases willing.
AFL and rugby union as a trojan horse to talk a crapload of motorsport with BernieTB, including the FUTURE Future future of Formula E, Le Mans, DTM and V8 Supercars, and the past of Indycars, F1 and Hermann Bloody Tilke, Track Ruiner To The Stars.
This week: Chris Robinson Brotherhood vs the Magpie Salute in a heavyweight brofight that makes the Gallaghers' blood feud look like Gameboy Double Dragon; Sneaker Pimps and triphop's philosophy of drug use as it relates to artistic endeavour; plus fake craft beer, female albums, an unnecessary number of shouts to Dan from At The Drive Thru and a bit too much fucking perspective. Find us on iTunes, and check our playlists on Spotify (album playlist | 2017 mixtape).
Cricket union > Rugby union, Kyrie vs Neymar, early NBA projections, vale Les Murray and Max Verstappen's latest banger.

Last week's After Dark was a re-air of After Dark 21 from our archives, featuring Lana del Rey, the Prodigy, Oasis, Ardbeg and Coke, the Bae of Pigs and a lot of drunken incoherence:
In which Beeso and special guest, sports writer Erin Riley, have a reasoned and intellectual discussion about the changing landscape of women's professional sport and the dearth of analysis and nuance in the Australian sports media marketplace. This reasoned and intellectual discussion does not feature the Doc, who spent the two minutes he saw of the Matildas game tweeting about Butt. Get us on iTunes: itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/balls-with-beeso-dr-yobbo/id1209722376
This week: synthy Future Islands, screamo Alpha Wolf, classic Run-DMC, RIP old mate from from Linkin Park, Tony Hawks' implausible travel adventures and Beeso invents a massively faulty new methodology for reviewing albums. iTunes links and Spotify playlists are in the Omny shownotes.
Selling Rockets to China, not being the Pelicans, the end of the NBA (not bloody likely), the Womens World Cup, liking the Giants and hating the Halo.
Adam hangs around for the After Dark to talk Polish Club's new rock revival revival, Hot 8's bootleg Buena Vista, and Def Leppard pouring sugar on people in the name of diabetes. iOS punters should check us on iTunes. On Spotify: Our regular new + classic album review playlist and our 2017 After Dark Mixtape, as well as AD.100's 2017-to-date and 2015-16 best-ofs. For more on the back story of Beeso's unnatural aural predilections, check BALLS After Dark.10: More Brass Than Class.
Adam joins Beeso and the Doc to talk summer basketball, Origin football, rugby geniuses, AFL crowds, Wayne Rooney's pyjamas, oily Lakers guys, multiple Kevin Bartletts, more tennis than is strictly necessary and entirely too much nude golfer.
Here's the full list of all the albums we've reviewed on BALLS After Dark:
To celebrate 100 episodes of this ludicrous crap, friend of the show and Actual Credentialled Music Reviewer (look!) @AlbionLoveDen joins your favourite shambolic amateurs to discuss their favourite albums of 2017 to date and the last couple of years, before assessing the classic status of the Go-Betweens' comeback The Friends Of Rachel Worth. iTunes contains multitudes (of this podcast). Spotify playlists of the album picks (don't look if you don't want spoilers): 1H 2017 | 2015-16 | Also check out: Our new + classic album review playlist | Our 2017 After Dark Mixtape.
All the NBA free agency winners and losers (hi Knicks fans), Cricket Australia still think they're negotiating with 7-11 workers on 457 visas, tennis discourse is cooked and Sherliggett get pensioned off. Also on iTunes. We guarantee this ep will date better than this billboard.
