PFT Commenter Launching A Podcast Via Barstool Sports And Podcast One
March 1, 2016 at 5:10 PM (PT)
Popular sports parodist PFT COMMENTER is moving his "MMBM" column from SB NATION to BARSTOOL SPORTS, and with the new location comes a new podcast. "PARDON MY TAKE," on which PFTC will be joined by BARSTOOL CHICAGO writer DAN "BIG CAT" KATZ, is debuting via PODCASTONE on FRIDAY (3/4) and will post TUESDAYS.
PFT COMMENTER started as a parody of other commenters on the PRO FOOTBALL TALK website (replete with deliberate misspellings and "hot takes" (or "taeks") and later, after launching a popular Twitter account, began writing longer pieces at SB NATION (including covering the presidential races, managing to get into the picture on MSNBC's "HARDBALL WITH CHRIS MATTHEWS" holding a sign with his eternal, slightly grammatically challenged question "Is JOE FLACCO a elite quarterback?"). He also hosted an occasional show, "THE STEAMROOM" ("finally, a sports talk show FOR MEN"), on SIRIUSXM's OPIE RADIO.
Also launching from BARSTOOL and PODCASTONE is a podcast hosted by BARSTOOL SPORTS founder DAVE PORTNOY. "THE DAVE PORTNOY SHOW" is already available via iTUNES.
“Our podcasts have become so popular. I’m excited to now get in the podcast game, myself, by hosting one of the new shows and helping to make BARSTOOL the King of all podcasts,” said PORTNOY. PODCASTONE Chairman/CEO NORM PATTIZ added, “BARSTOOL SPORTS has consistently ranked among our network’s most-listened-to podcasts. Going from three podcasts a week to five is great for both of us, but more importantly, it’s great for our audience and the advertisers who want to access them.”
