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?

#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.
We pick through the rubble of NBA Finals game 1, rate the worst LeBron takes of the week, ask whether CA are incompetent or just flat-out lying (por qué no los dos?), plus lots of football and motorsport, aka The Inside Of Doc's Brain. Rate us highly on iTunes, if you'd be so kind.
Cavs vs Dubs Finals preview, ACA & CA battling for brands hearts and minds, the ABC shambles their way out of contention for A-League FTA rights, Gronk gets paid (like a Bucks rotation 3-and-D guy), never go to Taco Bell, T20 data-mining and vale Nicky Hayden. Check us on iTunes.
NBA conference finals, all-NBA teams and trade implications, plus CA vs ACA, AFL Wildcards, 'likeable' Chelsea and kia kaha Kentucky Kid. Subscribe and review on iTunes. That NBA 2K17 cover is going to date well eh.
New albums from Gorillazzzz and DJ Format/Abdominal, a #NZMM classic from Supergroove, Lazy Grey vs lazy journalism, the origins of That Sonic Animation Sample and things not to do in a hot portaloo. All the albums are here, all our fave tracks of the year are here and all the pods are here. Get involved.
BAD//DREEMS hark back to the 80s (with a producer to match), the Black Angels' Death Song and Radiohead's OK Computer twenty years on. Also: you can take Beeso out of Beenleigh but you can't take blah blah blah, enjoying without joy and the Doc gets bus lag. Check us on iTunes (words) and Spotify (noises).
Second thoughts from the NBA second round, brought to you by Big Ballsup Brand. Also: Chelsea once were likeable, Sky NZ cannot internet and Newcastle is a thing (apparently). We sound better on iTunes.
In which we get a great many things wrong, including band name pronunciation, Belgian regional geography and the level of production expertise behind BAD//DREEMS' debut album (we'll explain next week). Hypochristmutreefuzz, the Jesus and Mary Chain and Grinspoon's Easy feature. Subscribe to our crap on iTunes, improve your life immensely.
After a week of playoffs and layoffs in the NBA, we tip a little out for the teams and our favourite writers and podcasters who've left us (for now at least). Also: the ups and downs of pro-rel football, netball and cricket pay deals, NASCAR faces life without Dale Jr and tipul ăsta eo bucată de gunoi: the Ilie Nastase story. iTunes linkypoo.
First round of the NBA playoffs, netball implodes, the King of the Kids and live updates from the Euro football semi-final draws. iTunes is a good place to subscribe to and review the pod, if you're into that sort of thing.
Recapping the NBA regular season (and more importantly our season-long team draft beer bet), saluting the fallen and previewing the playoffs. Also: Crankworx does Rotovegas, Alonso swaps Monaco for Indianapolis, and what football is for.
Here's how the NBA season (and our team draft picks) turned out:
