Here is something from our friends at Stitcher! Looking for a podcast that will make you laugh AND think? Earwolf Presents: This Is Critical. Fearless, sophisticated culture criticism for all generations. Nothing is off-limits, nothing dumbed down. With American culture on the rocks, we’re split into fake “wars” about everything from avocados to bicycles to medical masks. It’s time we took a critical lens to every facet of our shared experience. And that’s what host Virginia Heffernan is prepared to do.
This episode is all about trash talk. The NFL is cracking down on it. Donald Trump can’t stop doing it. And it’s the whole reason for the first rule of social media: “Never read the comments.” Trash talk is uncivil, unsportsmanlike, and not for the faint of heart. But what if you could learn to use it to your benefit? Virginia Heffernan talks to former pro basketball player Dre Baldwin to find out how to trash talk on the court and in life — with some tips and tricks from comedian Mike Albo.
