It’s a Throwback … Monday? The boys are back at their classic time for an old-school edition of The Flip Side.
They start with high praise for friend of the show Lauren Smith, who became an official Ironman this weekend. That eventually segues into talk of a New York Times story showing how Trump voters view the NFL, how tribalism is affecting our world and how partisanship is a hell of a drug.
The main topic is Twitter - or, in Galen’s words, why Twitter has no chill. Brian thinks Twitter feels very different than it did even a few years ago and that it is becoming less vital. Galen still believes in what Twitter can be, even if people take everything on there way too seriously. There’s no answer to be had, but it’s a good discussion on the present state and potential future of social media.
They boys also talk about the baseball playoffs and why they are both awesome and interminable.
There is also the potential of a live in-kitchen show next week.
Brian’s beer: Bisonberry Ale
Galen’s beer: Burning Hands IPA
