Participation Trophy Podcast: Episode #21

In our world you’re not 2nd place, you’re first runner-up! Join Abdullah, Jamal, Joe, Neil, and Zain as we school you on sports, media, public shame, and everything else in between. You didn’t get ‘em this time. But at least you tried.

The guys kick off the show with their Valentine’s Day recaps and a good discussion on the banner year of 1996 in Hip-Hop. In Open Gym, we talk John Wall’s much-anticipated return to DC with the Rockets, the Mark Cuban National Anthem controversy, and why the NBA should can this year’s All-Star Game. In Theater, Zain reviews Cobra Kai and The Wilds, while Jamal reviews Judas and the Black Messiah (spoiler-free!). We close by throwing Marcus Jordan and Twitter thieves in Detention.
