Episode 143: LeBron, Politics Intersecting with Sports and Racism In Star Wars Fandom

The Jerks discuss all the champions crowned this week, from the Warriors to the Caps to Justify, plus we break down where LeBron James could play next season, CM Punk getting “Shreked” in his latest UFC fight and President Donald Trump’s compulsion to involve himself in sports and sports issues. Plus, Jared Leto is getting his own Joker movie, a Game of Thrones prequel is on the way and a deep dive into the ugly (racist, misogynist) side of fandom, especially Star Wars fandom. T2J — high-brow subjects, low-brow humor!

Volume 8, Episode 7: RIP Muhammad Ali, Captain America in Hydra and Fanboy Butthurt

The Jerks remember The Greatest, break down the next phase of MLB’s “Just Stay Open” plan (rule changes!), and Dana White’s strong-arm tactics with the media. Plus, new footage for the Batman v. Superman Blu-ray, a new director for The Flash movie, and a new wave of fanboy vitriol over Ghostbusters, Captain America and DC: Rebirth! It would take 700 episodes of the leading podcast to equal the funny in one episode of Total-er, T2J!
