He was the face of the Cubs during the most successful run in more than a century, and even if it makes some business sense to move on from him it doesn't make it any easier for the fans. Kyle and Andy discuss the Cubs trade of Anthony Rizzo to the Yankees, whether it's in effect a third of a season loan or if he's really gone, how bad it is that o…
 
How can you poke holes in one of the greatest movies ever made? Well, you don't, mostly. Andy and Mike P. revisit the 1990 Martin Scorcese classic, "GoodFellas" and marvel at what a great, well made, incredibly paced movie it is, while taking issue with just a couple of the plot points. They draw Sopranos parallels, play your favorite clips, give s…
 
The Olympics are here whether anybody's ready or not and Drew Lawrence of The Guardian (and several other publications) stops by to talk about them. Why are they happening? Why are they playing softball on a toxic waste site? The guys try to come up with a better way to pick the men's basketball team, wonder what Mary Carrillo is going to get to ma…
 
A year after the Cubs' inexplicable playoff run and Sammy Sosa 66 homer season, the Cubs were without Kerry Wood (because of Tommy John Disease), but decided the keys to returning to the playoffs were bringing back 40-year old Gary Gaetti and signing Benito Santiago and Scott Sanders. Fool proof. Just one game out of first in June the Cubs plummete…
 
It's time for a Cubs podcast and Kyle joins Andy with Sam out on assignment, and the guys have breaking news to discuss with Joc Pederson traded to the Barves for an enormous prospect (literally.) They play a fun game of "Is he gonna be traded," they try to figure out who to assign blame to for the demise of the Cubs the last few years, and they pi…
 
The Dusty era had ended, Sam Zell was in town screwing up the Tribune and trying to pump up the value of the Cubs so he could sell them to some unsuspecting dopes in Omaha, Alfonso Soriano, Theodore Roosevelt Lilly, Jason Marquis, Mark DeRosa and Cliff Lee were new to town and the Cubs struggled to start the season. Then Carlos Zambrano punched Mic…
 
Former Daily Herald Cubs' reporter Bruce Miles is back to discuss his new blog at brucemiles.net, his new book, "The Phenom" and to talk a lot about the Cubs current and past. Has the Cubs' six-game losing streak given the team permission to sell, and do they have anybody to sell if it did? The Cubs' schedule gets easier and the Brewers' gets harde…
 
All Cubs seasons are fun to re-live (well, most of them) but some are more fun than others and this time the wheel of crap has gifted us the incredible, ridiculous, insane 1998 Cubs. Sammy Sosa homered every day, Kerry Wood struck out everybody, Terry Mulholland and/or Rod Beck were always pitching and Chip Caray was there to narrate most of it--we…
 
The season opened in the land of the rising sun and sunk pretty quickly afterwards. Don Baylor was the new Groove in town and he brought back a mediocre former Cubs catcher and an actual lead off man. Kerry Wood didn't debut until May after surviving his bout with Tommy John Disease but he did it in memorable fashion. The Cubs kept trading for Barv…
 
Chevy Chase says it's his best movie and who are we to argue? We give Fletch the Movie Deep Dive treatment. We discuss the long tortured road it took to the screen in the first place, the differences between the book the movie, the stuff Chevy just made up, and we even mention the godforsaken sequel. We also look at why it's been so hard for Hollyw…
 
It's time once again to spin the wheel of crap and this time it lands on 1996. Jim Riggleman's fighting Cubs tanked down the stretch (surprise), Sammy was bad at the start then great and then got hurt, Ryne Sandberg came back, Doug Jones hit the road, Steve Trachsel was an All-Star. Jim Hendry arrived to start stocking the system with his guys and …
 
When the 2021 Cubs tied the 1977 team for best record in May, it made us wonder what the hell happened to those 1977 Cubs. They had an 8.5 game lead and finished 20 games out of first, somehow. So, Mike D. and I brought in old friend Frank Nova (we needed somebody old enough to remember), and here's your chance to learn more than you ever wanted to…
 
A Cubs season so bad that all of baseball decided to just end the season in August...it's 1994 and that's this week's season to savor on Remember This Crap? Andy and Mike D. look back at Tuffy Rhodes' three homers on opening day, the Cubs not winning a home game until after tax day, Harry Caray falling down in Miami, Ryne Sandberg's first wife's pr…
 
Sam joins Andy for the Cubs podcast and they discuss the strange sensation of seeing a team totally turn things around right before your eyes. The Cubs smacked the Padres around pretty good and started what's supposed to be a make or break June schedule gauntlet with three convincing wins. The guys discuss how much of the preseason "sell off the fr…
 
After some fond remembrances of Andy's time as an official scorer in the Midwest League, he and Mike D. spin the wheel of crap and it lands on...well, a year they can't do because of their only rule, so they spin again and get the Don Zimmer/Jim Essian juggernaut 1991 Cubs. Re-live Dave Smith's season crippling early blowouts, a wild game against t…
 
Neifi saved the season! At least that's what Dusty Baker insisted. We spin the wheel of crap and it lands on 2005 so we re-live Nomar's groin injury, Kerry Wood disappearing early and often between innings of starts, Derrek Lee's should have been MVP season, and a glorious assortment of Cubs bums. It's a very fun look at a team that was only occasi…
 
It's time for a deep dive into the 1998 Coen Brothers' classic, "The Big Lebowski", and at over two hours it's perfect if you're not into that whole brevity thing. Andy and Mike P. discuss the seemingly disjointed plot that all comes together, the perfect performances, iconic lines, casting decisions, how many times The Dude says "man", how many Wh…
 
Andy, Sam and Kyle have reassembled to discuss the Cubs season to date. Everybody's hurt, but it's not serious, you know the same thing that the Cubs training staff has said every time anybody has gotten hurt, ever. They play a fun game of "whose fault is it?" They make fun of Jesse Rogers' math. But they also wonder if the Cubs have actually accid…
 
Andy and Mike D. spin the wheel of the crap and land on one of the most fun seasons in our lifetimes, the Boys of Zimmer, the 1989 Cubs. They dispel some myths about Mitch Williams' opening day tightrope walk, revel in a big moment from a backup catcher, the greatest double play Andy's ever seen and the Luis Salazar Game. They also break down the M…
 
It's a special edition of the Movie Deep Dive Podcast and Andy and Mike Pusateri are joined by a man with an inexplicable love of the 2014 Kevin Costner-Jennifer Garner classic "Draft Day." It's ESPN 1000 Chicago and NBC Sports Net Chicago's David Kaplan. The guys break down the movie, try to figure out why everyone in the movie seems to have been …
 
Andy and Kyle are on hand to do the first in-season edition of this year's Cubs podcast. They take a tour around the roster wondering if Javy is ever going to shorten his swing (he's not), feigning shock at Joc Pederson's early season struggles, enjoying the renaissance of Kris Bryant and (for now, at least) Jake Arrieta. They try to make a fireabl…
 
Andy and Mike D. spin the big wheel of crap and it lands on the Lou Piniella's final full season with the Cubs, 2009. You probably remember it best for Milton Bradley just being a complete psychopath, or for Kevin Gregg kicking his own team in the balls in a must-win game in Miami. It was the year we saw breakout stars like Jake Fox, Micah Hoffpaui…
 
It's time for another Movie Deep Dive Podcast and this time Andy and Mike P. are breaking down the Matt Damon/Ed Norton/John Malkovich/Gretchen Mol/John Turturro classic Rounders. What's with everybody's hair? Does the math in the movie make any sense? Why is that casino such a dump--oh, that's why. We talk about the cast, the backstories, our favo…
 
Once again, our heroes Andy and Mike D. spin the big wheel of crap to see where it will land what Cubs season they will discuss and this time it lands on a gem. Re-live Sammy Sosa's greatest season, a fun but bad Cubs team that spent most of the summer inexplicably in first place, three gut wrenching bullpen losses, one of the wildest nights in Cub…
 
It's time once again to spin the big wheel and see what crap we have to remember and this time the wheel commands Andy and Mike D. to remember Jim Lefebvre's exciting 1992 squad. It was Greg Maddux's last year in his first stint with the team, Ryne Sandberg's last really good season, and some guy named Sammy Sosa showed up from the White Sox. Reliv…
 
Baseball season is nigh and man are we excited for the Cubs upcoming season! The baseball crew is back together with Andy, Kyle and Sam and they try to gin up some enthusiasm for what sure looks like the final promise of a Cubs run of dominance landing with a big, wet, thud. If the Cubs can't even pretend to want to keep Anthony Rizzo, what are we …
 
Remember This Crap is back, and if you thought we remembered a bunch of random stuff about the Bears you will be amazed what we can remember about the Cubs. We spin the wheel of death and it lands on...1997. It was a very memorable season for the Cubs, for all the wrong reasons. Relive their horrible start, Mel Rojas sucking what little life they h…
 
Andy and Mike P. give the 1989 classic movie Major League the Movie Deep Dive treatment. Relive the best moments of your favorite baseball movie, learn scintillating facts about the cast and the shooting, and wait until you hear about how they used to figure out how fast pitchers were throwing. Seriously, it's insane. You'll learn fascinating stuff…
 
Andy and Mike Pusateri are back with another deep dive into a great movie. This time it's Moneyball, with Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and...uh, Royce Clayton? You'll find out why Art Howe was so happy with the movie (he wasn't), how different the movie almost was, interesting facts about the cast and how it very nearly had a Bill…
 
Our Bears pod is shuttered (at least until the Bears trade two number ones for Rick Mirer again) but that doesn't mean Mike Pusateri and Andy are done with their podcast. This abbreviated episode is the announcement of the next movie in our Movie Deep Dive series. Enjoy. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/desipio/message…
 
You all remember Cap Boso's turf face. You might remember Jim Harbaugh throwing the game tying touchdown to Neal Anderson's feet. But Blair Thomas will never forget Steve McMichael stealing a sure win out of his hands. It's time to remember a Monday Night Football classic from 1991 when the Mike Ditka Bears took on Bruce Coslet's Jets. Al, Frank an…
 
You thought you were done with the Bears for the season and so did we, but the mind-numbingly tone deaf and just plain bad press conference last week with George, Ted, Ryan, Matt and Ringo deserved a breakdown so Andy and Mike P. are here to do it. They try to figure out just what it is that George does, why Ted is still around and really why was h…
 
The 1984 Bears playoff upset of the Washington Footballers in DC is remembered for a lot of things: the Bears broke a 21 year playoff win drought, they did it with their fifth quarterback of the season, the old school Washington team had a straight ahead kicker, a quarterback with a one bar facemask and male fans who wore dresses and pig noses. But…
 
Word leaked out after Andy and Mike P. recorded the podcast that Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace are coming back, but it's not like the guys didn't expect it. They look back at an uninspiring playoff effort, try to figure out why their Parler passwords don't work, what Nickelodeon was going for with their broadcast, Andy thinks Alabama's quarterback Mac Jo…
 
Sunday's game will be the third time the Bears and Saints have met in the playoffs and the Bears have won the first two. You remember the 2007 NFC Championship game and Andy and Mike D. talk about that, but you probably don't remember much about the 1991 Mike Tomczak-Steve Walsh-John Fourcade barage a tois, so we go deep into that one. It's the lef…
 
The Bears reward for losing to the Packers again is, inexplicably, a playoff spot. Andy and Mike P. look back at the Bears showing improvement against Green Bay and still losing by nearly three touchdowns, try to figure out what kind of defense that was supposed to be, why the Bears refuse to hire running backs, what Mitch looked like against a rea…
 
It's Packers week part deux and Andy and Mike D. are ready to look back at important Bears-Packers games in recent history (there really have been some) they also talk about the Jerry Lewis telethon, Tom Dreesen, Caleb Hanie, Chris Conte, Eddie Jackson returning an interception and hurting his knee, great high school football plays, great (and terr…
 
The Cubs traded their best pitcher to the Padres for four bags of teenage beans and whatever the hell Zach Davies is supposed to be and that called for an emergency podcast with Andy and Sam Fels. What the trade says about the Ricketts desire to win is all bad, and while there are defensible reasons to trade a 34-year old pitcher who has had two se…
 
The Bears have inexplicably staggered back into playoff contention and Andy and Mike P. get you ready for Sunday's sure-to-be-memorable tilt with the hated Packers. They go through all of the scenarios, look back at the Jags rousing halftime speech that convinced their team to stop trying, break down how averaging 35 points per game the last four w…
 
The history of the Bears and Jaguars is neither long nor storied, but we'll always have Keith Traylor and the crowning moment of Dick Jauron's 2001 Bears juggernaut. Andy and Mike D. look back on all seven contests between the teams, try to figure out why Jacksonville even has a team, re-live great moments for the A-Train, Peanut Tillman, Chad Hutc…
 
Andy and Mike P. talk about the Bears win over the Vikings and how everything on Sunday broke against the best interests of the team long-term. Will the Bears still be motivated to change the GM or coach? Will Ted Phillips be given a big Publisher's Clearinghouse check to leave and if so, Andy thinks he knows who they'll replace him with. Let's jus…
 
It's Vikings week part deux and Andy and Mike are Remembering This Crap about the Bears and Vikings which includes one of the rarest of all things in Bears history--a road playoff win, by Dave Wannstedt, no less--and tales of famous Vikings like Ted Brown, Jarvis Redwine, Joe Senser, Fuad Reveiz, Amp Lee and Steve Dils. The '94 playoff win at the M…
 
The guys look back at a the Bears first win in nearly two months and hope that it didn't save anybody's job--but it probably did. The talk about Mitch's big day against a terrible, depleted Texans team, about whether they'd rather have the Texans future or the Bears, who Andy thinks should be the Bears QB next year and who probably will be. They al…
 
The Bears, a charter franchise of the NFL have played the Texans four times in the 19 year history fo the Texans and dumped them all. The Texans have prevented the Bears from making the playoffs, contributed to Paul Edinger's only career pass, and ruined a Bears season by scrambling Jay Cutler's brain. The guys also discuss why Bears should try an …
 
Another week another undignified Bears loss and Andy and Mike P. are begrudgingly ready to talk about it. They break down the epic Bears' collapse, try to figure out what anybody was thinking and where defense has gone. They talk about Ted Phillips' rumored retirement, why Ryan Pace can't pick the next QB and the advantages of firing everybody in-s…
 
It's time to remember even more crap about the Lions as they come to town to take on the Bears Sunday. The Lions had the courtesy to fire their idiot head coach named Matt, unlike the Bears. Andy and Mike D. look back the long, illustrious history of Lions coaches, the youngest players in Hall of Fame history (and how that reflects pretty poorly on…
 
The Bears made fools of themselves, again, on national TV at Lambeau Field on Sunday night and Andy and Mike P. are on hand to wallow in the misery the Bears are shedding as the NFL's latest superspreader of suck. The guys tell you what the Bears need to do, and why the McCaskey family is too dumb to do any of it. Mitch Trubisky came back to remind…
 
With the Bears off fighting their Week 11 bye to a draw, the Pointless Exercise podcast takes advantage of having an actual professional actor, Mike Pusateri, on it to go into a deep dive into one of Mike and Andy's favorite movies, Phillip Kaufman's 1983 classic The Right Stuff. Why should you listen to a two hour podcast about a three and a half …
 
It's the one you've been waiting for. Mike D. and Andy Remember This Crap about the Bears and Packers. From the glory days when the Bears never lost to the Packers to whatever things are now, the guys remember Packers cheap shots, Chester Marcol's mad dash and the Bears revenge later that season, Bryan Robinson's jump, Devin Hester's debut, Lovie's…
 
The pod starts with a new sponsor and ends with extensive talk about Theo Epstein leaving the Cubs, but in between Andy and Mike P. do their contractual duty and talk about another Bears loss. How the offensive coordinator search saved the season, the best thing about the game was how quickly it was played, the saddest kind of quarterback controver…
