Frotcast 298: Guest PFT Commenter Explains The Secret To Crafting The Hottest Sports Takes

Listen on the player above, or download as an mp3 here (right-click, save as).

From genius Twitter parody of your average moronic sports-blog commenter to political prankster and critically-acclaimed host of his own podcast (Pardon My Take), the controversial, divisive, mysterious internet figure PFT Commenter joins the Frotcast this week for his first live appearance. The leader of the “Internet Commenters For Trump” movement explains what goes into crafting the hottest sports takes, how he dealt with the cease and desist letters he received from ESPN and Mike Florio, and disputes SI writer Rick Reilly’s recent claim that Kate Upton having three boobs would be bad. Comedian Matt Lieb (Viceland’s Flophouse) also returns this week, along with me, Brendan, and Bret. Matt sings fully-improvised songs set to royalty-free music, we discuss the OJ 30 for 30 documentary, and answer your emails. We also talk about Ice T and Body Count’s new cover of “Institutionalized,” and offer an abbreviated “Crystal Corner.” Enjoy.
