DIAR Episode #012

This show launches with the southern hip-hop sounds of Bubba Sparxxx. That leads to a conversation about race and rap. Somehow the lovely Kennedy (former MTV VJ and current Fox Business host) is brought up. Getting back on track, the dudes dig deeper into the shenanigans of the likes of Kanye West and Oprah. They eventually get into flame wars online, such as the Huffington Post Facebook page. Was Mike right for weighing in on the Biggest Loser extreme weight-loss controversy? Find out how a den of HuffPo readers responded. The dudes call out the show as a farce. They argue being skinny doesn't equate to health (since factors like drugs and smoking can curb appetite). Later, Mike tells a story about how he stood up to some jerk who tried to cheat at a contest for football tickets. Also, they chat about negativity in the media and entertainment. Stick around and you'll hear the dudes' take on Jerry Seinfeld calling out politically correct garbage. Near the end, Coke gets called out.
