The Distraction: A Defector Podcast

Stitcher

From Defector. Former Deadspin writers Drew Magary and David Roth should really stick to sports. Sure, their new indie sports podcast will break down the week in sports: the Mets grounding into quadruple plays, NBA players getting testy on the court and horny on Instagram, Bill Belichick cutting 80% of his roster just to keep himself interested, horrifying takes from sports talk radio that need to be broken down, etc. But these two men and their guests will have their fair share of off-the-field issues they’ll also have to address: stupid Funbag questions, bad tweets from bad people, pointless food arguments, and even less. Every week is a VERY long week these days. We could all use a little Distraction. Head to defector.com for more info.

  • Disappointing

    Most recent episode had some really irresponsible garbage on COVID. Incredibly disappointing.

  • My favorite podcast

    Drew and Roth are fantastic! This is the only podcast I listen to regularly when it’s released each week. My one piece of constructive criticism as a longtime listener - please fix Lauren Theisen’s audio! She’s a great guest, I love every episode she’s a part of, but her audio is markedly disparate compared to the sound quality of the rest of the podcast.

  • Great stuff.

    The only downside is that it’s once a week.
