A sad day has befallen the PODcast. Ryan Mathews, longstanding cohost, has finally lost his streak. Always first into the gym and last to leave, Ryan has failed to appear due to issues with his internet. This forced the PODcast in a different direction, and a new crew to show for it.

This week, Kent Lee Platte joined the show to talk about the draft. He’s good about talking about the draft. You’ll want to hear his advice, because the Lions have virtually backed themselves into a corner with linebackers, and Kent’s got the skinny on the best ones.
