Taibbi Talks NFL Draft, Politics with Bill Simmons and Dan Patrick

Podcast discusses football, Chechnya, Wall Street and more

I joined friend and fellow Boston native Bill Simmons of Grantland yesterday on his B.S. Reporthere's a link to yesterday's podcast, in which we talked about all sorts of things, from the NFL draft to Chechnya to the coverage of the Boston marathon bombings to Wall Street. One idea that came out of it was an annual Wall Street version of Bill's famous NBA trade value chart. Who'd be the evil Number One on the list? I'm leaning Dimon, but input is definitely needed. Anyway, thanks to Bill for a fun discussion, and here's the link . . .

Thanks also to Dan Patrick, who was gracious enough to have me on his show to talk about my latest NFL Draft Decoded piece. I'm always intimidated talking to guys I grew up watching on Sportscenter, but it was a fun spot. Here's the clip from yesterday's show:

One quick note: I should have a pretty interesting non-sports story coming out tomorrow online, so check back in here tomorrow afternoon if you get a chance. Until then, thanks for indulging my unhealthy NFL obsession . . .
