Paul Ryckert, the Yankees, and Central Park. Does it get any more New York than this?

2 hours, 6 and a half minutes of podcast. Nice surprise.

Edit:

Oh boy, Dan's confusion over neutering vs castration.

I love New York and would love to hear Mr. Rykert's impressions (both meanings) of the Big Apple. Aaaand in the first minute I hear the typical sound of New York sirens and the stereotypical Midwest reaction.

As a non-New Yorker, I have to agree that a Pastrami Sandwich from Katz's Deli is something to be experienced. A pound of decent pastrami is like $13 on its own so $20 is not that outrageous with that context.

Paul Ryckert's presence always a welcome on-off! But as someone who's lived in NYC for the past six years and is originally from St. Louis, this podcast was particularly enjoyable.

Hearing about or seeing places that are regular parts of my life instantly elevates my interest in otherwise mediocre TV shows (eg. Mr. Robot, Broad City), movies, and music (eg. Joey Badass). I wonder what psychology underlies that response.

I don't think I'll ever leave New York, or ever stop loving the fact that Razor is fucking his duck toy for like an hour during this.

If I told you that half of this podcast is dedicated to piss and shit of course you would believe me because it's Dan and his dad.

This podcast was better then it had any right to be. I also don't see why people seem weired out by the bodyfluid talk, it isn't even obnoxious.

@zao: It depends on where you stood in life I guess. Didn't the Ryckerts once owned a store? I know a handful of executives who own their own Franchises and they, with the exception of one guy people persons and very easy people to get around with and that job can give you a lot of wisdom also.

They seem just like your avarage joes and I don't mean that in a bad way. They're seem very nice and easy to get around and the stuff they're talking about doesn't seem outworldly. They seem like my neighbours, nice and helpful people.

The sun isn't fire, its core is actually a continuous nuclear fusion explosion. What keeps it going is that there is a shitload of hydrogen being fused into helium. The rest of the sun is made of super high temperature plasma, and occasionally extra large explosions throw this plasma out into space in the form of solar flares.

That's how I remember it, at least. Been a long time since high school.

The tags really misrepresent what actual topics they talk about.
