“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

A few months ago, I was asked by Padres Jagoff of Gwynntelligence if I would be interested in doing a guest spot on one of their podcasts. I said, “Sure. Why not?”

Many weeks went by. Change the Padres moved to the East Coast. Padres Jagoff forgot about ever asking me. I forgot Padres Jagoff ever asked me.

Then, suddenly, we both remembered that he asked.

After some tense negotiations about who and what we would eventually talk about (re: nothing in particular), we finally recorded it.

Here, then, is that podcast. Over the course of about an hour of mindless chatter, we sum up our feelings on the Padres 2015 season in general, the changes to the radio and television broadcasts for 2016, the state of the Padres blogosphere & Padres twitter, and whether or not the McRib is actually just an unnatural way of cleaning out your digestive tract on an annual basis.
