Episode 178: Where Were You Last Night? An Oral History of The Shot (with Blake Murphy, Max Kerman, Sportsfeld, Sean Woodley, Vivek Jacob, Devang Desai, Rob Rousseau, Josh Custodio & Vyas Saran)
This week on the show that gets it to go, it’s a very special episode as a wide array of guests stop in to answer one question: Where were you last night? Writers, podcasters, artists and fans share their perspectives on The Shot — Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7 buzzer beater to keep the Raptors’ playoff hopes alive. Already an iconic highlight in both NBA and Toronto sports history, we break it all down with an examination of the moment. An oral history of The Shot.
This week on the show that didn't have Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant carrying us down the court, improvisor NIMA GHOLAMIPOUR joins the show to discuss his basketball skills, why John should be the next coach of the Raptors, Power Rangers, and what's worse: bad improv or bad stand-up. PLUS: What's the show worth? The CJFL makes headlines for all the wrong reasons! Justin lost his job! And John displays a startling knowledge of MTV's My Sweet Sixteen.
This week on the show that's all of Australia down there, the Real Good Boys take a deep dive into the shallow waters of Action Park, home to America's deadliest waterslides. PLUS: Tim Tebow's curly penis! And Mary Steenburgen's still got it!
This week on the show that dares you to put that in your report, you little pipsqueak, FAKE SHARK lead singer KEVVY joins the Real Good Boys to talk about touring with Marilyn Manson, meeting Limp Bizkit, and writing music for WWE Films. PLUS: Picking Stefan's bandwagon teams in LA! Pooping in the octagon! First concerts! Sending human remains into space! And John and Kevvy announce their new nü-metal podcast The P.O.D.cast.
This week on the show that doesn't know how you cheer for a guy like that, actor / writer / improviser DEVIN MACKENZIE of HIP.BANG and BLIND TIGER joins the Real Good Boys to discuss the futility of being good in the era of Curry and LeBron, his worst sports injury, and the doting fans of Dr. Indiana Jones. PLUS: John is tired! Stefan is wired! Justin expired! The one thing you're better at than every NHLer! And we reveal the prizes for the winners of the RGS Fan Art contest.
This week on the show that's taking that for data, mixed emotions abound for the Real Good Boys, as the Leafs have yet to be eliminated but John's already pre-emptively cool with it if they get knocked out (Ron Howard voice: "They're out."), while Justin's still salty about trading away Zack Kassian and Stefan is about as apathetic and tapped out as he's ever been. I also coulda sworn we talked about Tryamkin, but that must have been before we were recording. Whoops! PLUS: Kevin Costner's Waterworld! Breaking in to concerts! Justin Bieber! And being on the ice with the Queen. What do you mean?
We bring in the big gun to break down Lena Dunham's silent brush with Odell Beckham Jr. at the Met Ball: Hollywood insider and Lenore Denim expert Jesse Farrar, who definitely knows exactly what Lingle Dingle's done this time.

The charismatic frontman of Arkells, Max Kerman visits Real Good Show to dish on his NBA All-Star Celebrity write-in campaign, the Raps' illustrious history of awful European white guys, and why he should never be the one to negotiate the fee. Super Bowl preview! John Scott review! And how much crying is allowable. PLUS: It's an episode full of explosive exclusives, as Max teases Arkells' next album, and John and Justin reveal upcoming RGS guests.
It's the premier episode of Real Good Show, the sports podcast that tries (and fails) to talk about sports. Today's show topics include: introductions, the NBA and NHL drafts, artisanal rollerblades, Lil Bow Wow, CSI Cyber, the rules of cricket, and how to get rid of a problem defenseman.
Has an imminent trade made this conversation already irrelevant? Probably. Will you still have a good time listening to it? Definitely.
