Should The U.S. Boycott The Rio Olympics?

Oh, hey, looks like Olympic organizers in Rio won’t be able to clear the water of raw sewage in time for this summer’s Olympics. How much danger does poop water present to our athletes, and should we consider, you know, NOT making them compete in poop water by boycotting the whole thing? That’s just one of the many subjects in this week’s Deadcast.

But there’s more! Marchman and I also discuss spices (exciting!), weird baseball managers, glass snobs, apple meat, and more! If you have any tips you’d like to submit the podcast, just send it in to with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
