Drew Magary from Deadspin/GQ (whose latest novel, The Hike, drops on paperback in July) by this week to talk Big Summer Camp, Fargo, and whether sports reporters are more obnoxious than film critics. We also talk Netflix’s Roger Stone documentary, Get Me Roger Stone. Is it not ironic that the guy who brought the “cuck”-shouting alt-right to national prominence was once run out of Washington over a scandal about letting other men have sex with his wife? Why do all of the bad things seem to come from Nixon? And what the hell is going on with the guy’s skull? Naturally, we finish off with the Royalty Freestyle. Frot on and enjoy, donate at Patreon dot com slash Frotcast.
