Rob King and David Ingber, two writers for the sports comedy site The Kicker, put each other on the defensive by forcing one another to take the other side of various debates, as they discuss the biggest, silliest, weirdest, and most volatile topics in sports. With fast-paced jokes and a flat-out refusal to do real research, these two give sports fans exactly what they want: ridiculous hot takes. All while attempting not to destroy their decade-long friendship.

One of my fav episodes to date - What a guy Ed is. From professional Rugby player to Quadriplegic. From never walking again, to scaling mountains a year later. Resilience in spades. Who knew, wiggling your toe would lead to so many adventures. I love his resilience, his willingness to push boundaries, and the ability to say yes, and figure it out a…

Bit of a different one. Whilst we normally associate Anorexia and Bulimia with eating disorders in Women, 1 in 3 men have an eating disorder of some type.

I knew my Aunty had been through some stuff. I never understood the duration/complexities or severity of her conditions, nor how common they were amongst women. This was tough for me. I heard things I hadn't heard before, and it hits closer to home when it's family. It was also tough as I felt guilt for not knowing, and probably not making enough o…

Having known Lloyd for years, it's easy to not appreciate the longevity and what Lloyd has achieved in the Super League. Couple that with him being Welsh, he has probably gone under the radar.

However, the point of this podcast is not to show you how great these pe…
