The Distraction
A Defector Podcast
Defector's flagship podcast about sports (and movies, and art, and sandwiches, and certain coastal states) from longtime writers Drew Magary and David Roth. Every week, Drew and Roth tackle subjects, both serious and impossibly stupid, with a parade of guests from around the world of sports and media joining in the fun! Roth and Drew also field Funbag questions from Defector readers, answer listener voice mails, and get upset about the number of people who use speakerphone while in a public bathroom stall. This is a show where everything matters, because everyone could use a Distraction....

Would give this pod 10 stars. So fun, entertaining, and knowledgeable. Drew and Roth’s chemistry is off the charts. Only to be ruined by Producer Guy’s constant interrupting. Thank god for the skip button. So, only 5 stars. Added bonus, there’s sandwich talk!

So good! Less producer!
Love the show. Please don’t let your producer talk. Breaks the mood!

They’re Back, They’re Back
A funny, absurdist take on sports, sandwiches, and other nonsense. Well worth the limited mental space it occupies. The less Producer Eric I hear the better.
