BALLS.128 Trust the Spocess: NBA season preview 2017-18

Who will win the NBA regular season, and more importantly, the series of six-pack bets Beeso and the Doc have laid on the final standings in each league? Is Australia the new America? Has Thibs really learned nothing? Is Kyrie just an internet edgelord with handles? Will Beeso get Knicksrolled again? All this and much, much less within.

BALLS After Dark.104 BALLS After Dark.104 Siren song of the angry disaffected inarticulate white Cletus

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.

BALLS After Dark.103 Bros before Crowes

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).

BALLS.119 Kyrie-over champion

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:

BALLS.118 For-Erin Correspondent

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:
