The Rotunda #130 11/27/17 - This episode has a little something for everyone! Wanna know what the reaction was to last week’s episode about the Pawtucket transfer station? What about Al Franken’s SNL cast mate’s defense of him, how would that have played if he were not a Democrat Senator? And you DEFINTELY don’t want to miss Scott’s takedown of virtue signaler extraordinaire Lena Dunham, who gets called out on her hypocrisy in the first segment.
Scott’s joined by the fun loving, irreverent chair of the RI Libertarian Party, Pat Ford. Why be an L, as opposed to an R or a D? Listen in and decide for yourselves, and learn where their next fun meetup will be!

Psycho Sports #244 11/28/17 – In this hour of sports, insanity has hit the show. News broke that Eli Manning of the New York Giants was benched, which has Ryan screaming for GM Jerry Reese and HC Ben MacAdoo’s head and vehemently blaming them for Eli’s struggles this season (warning NSFW language). Though Tyler disagrees with the benching, he dropped the hot take saying that Eli is a below average NFL starting quarterback. Tyler stated he could name 16 other better starting QBs (even though he's yet to name all 16 QBs though), which brought the Pal on air to defend Eli Manning.
Also with this past game with Miami Dolphins, is it easy to say that the New England Patriots are far and above the best team in the NFL right now? Or are the Dolphins that bad? Tyler and Ryan have a hearty discussion on that matter.
Joining the show first is Jake Marrocco of the Independent to breakdown the upcoming big college basketball game between URI and PC. Which team has the advantage this time around? Which player is going to be an impact? Jake answers those questions plus more that Tyler tosses his way.
Then towards the end, they are joined by John Boccacino of SB Nation Buffalo Bills to give an insight of the Buffalo Bills before the upcoming Bill-Pats game this Sunday. What was the locker room like after the benching of starting QB Tyrod Taylor for Nate Peterman and then the loss to the LA Chargers in Week 11? Did the victory over the Chiefs change people’s perspective about the Bills team? How has the defense fared since the trade of DT Marcell Darius during the NFL trade deadline? John and Tyler discuss that and more.
Demand the Truth #59 11/27/2017 – After getting a little rest and turkey, Will Turbitt is back on the trails exposing lies and corruption. This week, he’s joined by independent freelance journalist David McDonough as the two break down the human mind or rather, what makes a person a psychopath, a sociopath, a narcissist. Are there people that are psychopaths, sociapaths, or narcissists in our government? Are there groups of people (i.e. The Bilderberg Group) engineering these to take advantage of the masses? Will and David discuss that and more.

Tyler and Ryan first break down the number one team of the region, the New England Patriots, and their impressive blowout win over the Oakland Raiders down in Mexico City in Week 11. Was the blowout win due to poor conditioning of the Oakland Raiders (not preparing themselves for the high altitude) or costly mistakes that doomed the Raiders? Or was it because the Patriots were just the superior team, playing at a high level in all aspects of the game (especially defense)? The duo discuss that plus give a small peak about the upcoming game against the Miami Dolphins and doing their 2-Minute Drill.
Joining them are two special guests to continue the Boston sports talk.
First up is Skyler Wack of SB Nation Bruins. Does backup goalie Anton Khudobin deserve to start more games over Tuuka Rask? How have the young Bruins players fared during their playing time?

Then to talk all things Boston Celtics, is SB Nation Celtics writer Bobby Manning. How impressive have the Celtics been in the early goings of the season? Are they ready to take that next step to become champions or are there still things they need to work out? Can the Celtics still ride on their defense to glory? Which player has provided the biggest surprise for the team and to fans? Bobby and Tyler discuss.
The Rotunda #129 11/20/17 - Scott mixes sports and politics in the first segment, taking both Marshawn Lynch of the Oakland Raiders and President Trump to task over their actions pertaining to the recent Sunday night football game in Mexico City.

We also hear about the passing of Charles Manson, and the searing mark that he left on the American psyche.
