Ep 118: War on the Past (w/ @KashannKilson)

Past

Bring em all down

Welcome to episode 118: War on the Past

This week’s guest, Chicken Social political contributor Kashann Kilson, talks to us about the shake up in Trump’s White House: Steve Bannon is out and back to Breitbart. Has anything changed? Also, there’s a lot of momentum right now to take down the country’s confederate monuments. Not only does Kashann give us a history lesson on them, he also shares our disbelief at how easy they are to take down. Will we win the war against the past?

In other news, the secret service is already out of money to pay agents. How has this happened and what does this say about Trump’s treatment of his security detail?

Last, but certainly not least, the preseason college football rankings are out. As usual, they’re ridiculous but some rankings are more egregious than others. Which rankings are the most inexplicable? You’ll soon find out.

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep 117: Nazis Suck (ft. @chachuck0 and @EricTrillman_)

Nazis are trash

Welcome to episode 117: Nazis Suck

This week’s episode takes a deep dive into the serious and the not so much so. First, Obes and Cha look at this past weekend’s Nazi violence in Charlottesville, VA from 3 angles: 1. The Unite the Right rally itself and the Nazis’ Tiki torch march the night before; 2. the police response and lack thereof, and; 3. Trump’s non-condemnation of the white supremacy his political life relies on.

We then had two (2) guests: show contributor Eric Trillman and newcomer Chuck, to talk about Season 2 of Last Chance U. They also partook in our time honored tradition of bashing the films of yesteryear as we took down The Breakfast Club (again).

Your Favorite Film is Trash: The Karate Kid

Written by Eric Trillman

Young Person here, Obes and Cha were kind (and patient) enough to let me contribute to one of the best series online right now, YFFIT. As a young person, I find 80’s movies to be terribly overrated. There’s like 8 good movies made in the 80’s and 6 of them star Eddie Murphy. In a decade full of trash, it was hard to choose just one film to disparage but I ultimately settled on The Karate Kid. So, without further ado, let’s get into why what some call a “classic film” I call trash.

Ep 116: Kaepernick, Greater Than Flacco (w/@Cianaf)

Kaepernick

This week’s guest wrote that 7>5…turns out it’s pretty demonstrably true

Welcome to episode 116: Kaepernick, Greater than Flacco

Yes, that’s right. Cian Fahey (aka Connor McFootball himself) joined us to talk about his latest article, “Colin Kaepernick is Better Than Joe Flacco”. He also told us about why he likes Cam Newton so much and what he expects to see from him this season.

We double-dipped on the Trump Administration with 2, count em, TWO Trump related topics. First, we discussed why the Trumpkins are so hellbent on losing on healthcare reform. After that, we looked at the comically brief run for WH Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci.

Last, but certainly not least, Kyrie Irving was just seen laughing at Lebron James’ expense? What does that mean for him going forward?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep 115: OJ Simpson is a Free Man (w/@KitTalksSports)

OJ Simpson

The Juice is Loose

Welcome to episode 115: OJ Simpson is a Free Man

Kit Wren joins us this week to discuss OJ Simpson. As the legendary running back/probable double murderer gets ready to leave prison, how do people currently view him? Additionally, why does a certain segment of the population refuse to let that 1995 murder case go? Kyrie Irving has demanded a trade from the Cavs…why? What’s going on that would make him want to leave? Also, Trump had it downright Hitler Youth-esque at the Boy Scout Jamboree. What are the potential ramifications of this?

Last but not least, Obes and Cha look at the upcoming HBO show, Confederate, which looks at what life would be like if slavery continued into modern times. The two of them wonder why our movie futures always have racists winning and discuss the best alternate futures that could be made into films or TV series.

Ep 114: No Love for Deez Balls

Balls

Hate is not the way

Welcome to episode 114: No Love for Deez Balls

This week, Chicken Social political correspondent @BostonJerry joins us to discuss New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s unusual fashion statement, as well as the future of the Trump Administration.

So, about those white receivers and running backs…

We then look at the newest source of hate for Big Baller Brand: professional athletes. Is this just common hate or is something else at play?
Finally we report with broken hearts that our hero Mike Vick is dead…and has been replaced by a sambo shucking and jiving on Fox Sports. How could this have happened?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep 113: Don Jr, Fredo of the Trumps (w/@FourVerts)

Fredo

Really, all 3 of Trump’s adult kids are Fredo but Don Jr. is the Fredo-est

Welcome to episode 113: Don Jr, Fredo of the Trumps (w/@FourVerts)

On this week’s show, we’re joined by Charles McDonald from the Setting The Edge podcast. He talked with us about what he expects to see from Cam Newton this coming season, why NBA players make more than their NFL counterparts, and so much more.

We then turned our attention to the Trump Administration and discussed how Donald Trump Jr. may have set his father’s impeachment into motion with his own stupidity.

Fredo Trump strikes again

Last, but certainly not least, we look at James Harden’s fantastic summer of 2017.
