The virgin voyage, y’all!

Okay, so you knew this was gonna happen eventually… just enjoy it.  We did!

And so in this Podcast…

Jeff introduces Chicago rock phenom and avid Cubs fan, Johanna Mahmud to the RSBS family.   When not front-manning the intoxicating alt-rock group, Meqqa, Johanna manages to drink Jeff’s beer and fantasize about a team made up of twenty-five Alfonso Sorianos.  Okay.  That second part may be a lie… but this part ain’t: when these two guys start talkin’ baseball, it’s all fun and games.  Among the topics of discussion: Roy Oswalt’s bulldozer, Lou Piniella’s preggers look, the Brendan Ryan pornostache hysteria, Hanley’s lollipop and much, much more.

    Galifianakis. Good one. It’s definitely the beard… Johanna’s has small woodland creatures living deep inside it.

  2. redstatebluestate

    Hmmm. Your browser is behaving badly, Sue. Smack it in line! Sure, the Cubs are the bane of my existence… but I live in Chicago. Can’t avoid them. And there are a few decent Cubs fans out there. Okay, maybe just one.

  3. rrrt

    My browser doesn’t seem to like the “Click me to listen!!” link. Nonetheless, you’re talking to a Cubs fan?? Am I in an alternate reality this morning? I thought the Cubs were the bane of your existence.

    Thanks Jane! Next time I might have an idea… but I can’t guarantee it. I can guarantee that it’ll be entertaining though 😉

    Only the Red State/Blue State crew would dig deep into the bowels of the multimedia and produce not only a entertaining but informative podcast of epic proportions.
    Next will come the EP with the title song to the podcast and a secondary selection.
    But people order now, they will get a set of Jeff’s used Ginzu knives, a additonal copy of the “Jesus Hates the Cubs” video and as an extra bonus….An hour of Alan telling us why Justin Verlander is a prophet dressed as a baseball player.
    Congrats on the purge into semi-conscious reality multimedia fandemonium.

    Emma — Listening to the game now as I type this. Beat the sCrUBS, please 🙂
    RR — I like your plan. Sounds like a winner!
    Austin — Good call. In the future we’re gonna aim for a half hour show… and thanks for the verification on the boot, brother!

    So I figured I would listen and comment at the same time… Jeff, we can’t smell anything on the podcast, so you can drink, eat or make smells of your choice without worry…. okay you gotta get over the fact that the LOLstros swept your guys… your just picking on Oswalt… yeah he might punch you…doh! see now we need vision too… I wanna see that technicolor yawn… okay you need visuals.. maybe it’s time to achieve a goal of MLBSoup…. you know like ‘WebSoup’ or ‘The Soup’ or ‘Tosh.O’ yep definitely we should campaign to MLBNetwork and get a fans show MLBSoup…. there we go the POO-Holes sound like that even when you say it…

    okay enough… gotta do something else… i’m with you AL baseball is for *******….


  8. redstatebluestate

    Peter, good ideas! And you probably just don’t like the American League ‘cuz your team has a hard time handling the American League (wink, wink).

  9. bklyntrolleyblogger

    I’m half way through and you guys are killing me!!
    Maybe bulldoze Inter-league games with Oswalt’s rig?!
    Yes!!! Bring back high sox! And C’mon!! A 164 game season? LOL : D
    I’ll be listening to the other half in about an hour after some dinner. Hysterical boyz!

    Thanks, Jeff. You just fed into another major geek realm for me: Podcasts! Love ’em! Got plenty of friends and acquaintances doing them – to varying degrees of success and mayhem.

    It sounds good. You and Johanna had no qualms about speaking your mind (just like the MLBlog). Love the flow between you two. Not gonna jump in on what you said, though – or, correct you. The Pinella imitations are hilarious, though!

    One suggestion: on iTunes, if you’re gonna curse, put up the Explicit Content codon for the podcast page. You can toggle it on your settings – somewhere. I’ll ask a podcaster friend about it…

    Kudos, Jeff…now, when will Allen get on the second mic? I’d to hear that conversation!

  11. redstatebluestate

    Mike — Thanks man. You are right on point! Me, Johanna, Al and Martha will make it an even better experience for ya next time 😉
    Randy — Thanks for the tips. This is new territory for us so thanks for your patience while we sort it out. I’m gettin’ into this “geek realm” too, brother!
