Summer Mix 2023

I had this down to two hours of songs for quite awhile, but wasn't sure where to go with it. I like to keep things around 90 minutes if possible. I wasn't sure what to change nor the order it should be in. Then, one night, like a good Connections puzzle, everything suddenly became clear.

As usual, every year, I say I really like how the mix turned out. And I'll say it again! I really like how the mix turned out!

Anyway, it's up on the podcast feed. If anyone wants a full downloadable copy, please let me know. Great job, gang.

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 16. Brock Stewart Fan Club

Hola, amigos. We know it's been a long time since we rapped at ya, but we're happy to be back. We kept things brief this time, but packed in a lot of topics:

-A discussion of some of the food faceoffs on the site recently
-Quick fantasy update
-A look at the season so far
-Surprising players, both on the good and bad side
-What the Twins will need to finish the year

Put it in your ear holes, gang!

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 15. New Guys

Well, there's certainly been a flurry (not "Fleury") of activity on the Twins' 40 man. First, we pause a bit to reflect on the state of the Wild season, then dive into the Arraez trade. We were about to wind things down, but then news of the Taylor trade came in and Nibbish ran across town to discuss that trade with us.

We also had some time to go over some recent videos, such as:

Father John Misty - Buddy's Rendezvous

Radiohead - Let Down

The Specials - Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Summer Mix 2022

Well, at least the 2022 part was correct! Anyway, great job, everyone. Turned out real well. A lot of the songs were pretty heavy on minutes and seconds, so we couldn't get too deep into the weeds on 2nd and 3rd selections. Also, like a Supreme Court justice and porn, I don't know the exact time when a song becomes too long to include, but I can tell you that 15 minutes is probably a bit too long... We've got to keep these things somewhat trimmed.

Anyway, enjoy, everyone!

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 13. Partly Cloudy

We (well, some of us) are back!

We kept our focus on the Twins. Here are our topics!

-For discussion: Which shower beer goes best with your shower Reuben?
-The bullpen: Such as it is.

Also, some video picks!

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 12. Keep On The Sunny Side (Part II)

Sorry it took awhile to get this out, gang. Some of the info is a little stale, but be sure it was hard hitting and insanely on point at the time.
Anyway, to complete the 12th(!) chapter of our humble little podcasf, we take a look at the Wild's season and a look ahead at their postseason.

Also, it's been awhile, so we go over some recent videos:
(Go ahead and give a vote if you haven't already)

Cherry Glazerr – Time to Get Away

Snail Mail – Glory

Rodrigo y Gabriela - Mettavolution

Le Tigre – TKO

Enjoy! We hope to have a reason to come back to you soon.

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 12. Keep On The Sunny Side (Part I)

Hey, gang, it's been awhile since we rapped at you. Spring is soon approaching and things are... looking cautiously optimistic for Minnesota sports teams?

A lot has happened in a short time. In this (half) episode, we delve deep into the storied history of 2022. First we take a quick look at the CBA agreement and then go through a second by second recap of that fateful mid-March weekend (as well as the other recent signings).

We'll have Part II out before long (featuring a look at the Wild), but we wanted to get this out before the hot stove overtakes our takes. Enjoy!
