Talking Out The Dead: “Always Accountable”


Thomas Crawford: This episode seemed a little like filler in my opinion. Yes, there was some things going on, yet it didn’t really hold my attention that much either. I’m not going to say I had the problems with it that I had with “Now.” However, there were some points where it was trying to waste a little time in between the last episode and the next.

Talking Out The Dead: “Now”


Thomas Crawford: The beginning of the episode seemed to suggest something crazy was about to start. A wide eyed Rick was running towards the town of Alexandria with a massive swarm of walkers in hot pursuit. Overall though, this episode really had a tough time keeping my attention.

Hyphen Nation – Episode #5: Predicting The 2015 NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl 50


The 50th edition of the Super Bowl is two days away. Panthers. Broncos. I make the final pick that can make or break my 2015 NFL playoff season. A win puts me above .500; a loss, under .500. More importantly, can Peyton win his second ring and tie Eli? Will he retire on top or head to LA next season? Can Cam silence his critics, at least for awhile? I’m really pumped about this game.

Also in this show (because I couldn’t do a 20 minute show just about the Super Bowl): Understanding what I like to eat, whether or not I’m scared of success, my candy addiction, and Go Demarcus and viral video in 2016.

Recommendations: New Girl season 5, Carly Rae Jepsen – E·MO·TION, The People v. OJ Simpson, The Internet – Ego Death.

Hyphen Nation – Episode #4: There Will Be No Sportball Talk Within


I take a break with the NFL and leave the predictions in my other pants pocket. In the first regular episode of Hyphen Nation, I spend time talking about how terrible I am at dealing with change, how I’m trying to use Snapchat more but Android’s version won’t let me be great, how I finally get Seinfeld after 32 years, and I discuss where the real problem with Frozen lies.

Because I watch Frozen all… the.. time.

Hyphen Nation – Episode #3: Predicting The 2015 NFL Playoffs: Championship Round


We’re down to the final four teams in the hunt for Super Bowl 50 and I recap what happened in the Divisional Round (I went 4-0, making me 5-3 this postseason) and pick the two teams that’ll be headed to San Francisco in February.

I also spend a lot of time getting distracted by all the people flying into the Kroger parking lot in search of bread and milk in preparation for Winter Storm Jonas. Considering this was the second time I recorded this episode after a headphone/microphone jack mix up the other day, it’s only right I get to watch the crazies fly in and out of the parking lot while the show rolls on.

Manning v. Brady. Cam v. Palmer. On v. On. Bye v. Bye. Kathy Bates. TV networks must hate me. The not-quite Hyphen Nation podcast. All of these things are discussed in this action packed third episode.

Did I mention I actually recorded this episode once? I was once told everything happens for a reason, so this reality’s Episode 3 must be better than the other Episode 3 you were going to end up with. Let’s go with that one.

Only one more sportball episode to go after this one non-sports fan listeners!

Hyphen Nation – Episode #2: Predicting The 2015 NFL Playoffs: Divisional Round


The NFL Playoffs are rolling along and so is Hyphen Nation! I went 1-3 during the opening round, and it’s not looking much better for this weekend as I picked all the home teams. I doubt I start the Championship Round at 5-3 but crazier miracles could happen.

I also spend some time talking about other things besides sportball, so I encourage non sports fans to check out this episode as well. There’s lot of updates on my current projects and the future plans for the show and my latest plan to be healthier.

I told you this is more than just a sports podcast. There’s also a few errors, so a certified No-Prize to anyone who catches them!
