Nat and Dan arrive at the studios downcast when they realised the big man isn't here this week. Then they perk up for two reasons: Marek Larwood is here and without Mike they can do a 'Carnage After Dark! Then it's pointed out that seeing as this is summer and all, no matter how late it is it's still light out there. It's ok though, there's plenty of sport to talk about, including the best sport of the 21st century...

In other news: Dan likes dismanteling Nat's air of professionalism; Marek is getting old; Dan suggests social media tactics; Nat's been trolled; Marek talks Volfsball; the NBA Draft is in the books and the Minnesota T-Wolves, via the lottery, snagged the first overall pick in their history and went for Kentucky shot swatter Karl Anthony Towns; the Cavs drafted Sir Dominc Porter, who was knighted by the queen in a private ceremony and has the best name ever ever ever; the NHL Draft has also happened at the BB&T down Florida way, and played out largely as expected - Connor Mcdavid a jinky centre from the Eerie Otters in the OHL went first overall; Edmonton took him – they take every overall first round pick and they rarely amount to much; lots of Bodeans Mailbag goodness and much, much more...

The Iron One is back! And he talks quite a lot about cocks! Turns out he's doing this to assert his dominance, something he reinforces by being in the host's chair this week as Nat is on IR with a screen. Never fear though, Hollywood is in the house alongside long-time friend of the show, TV sports person extraordinaire and third Montreal Canadiennes fan Mr Erik Janssen who joins the gang in basically wondering where it all went wrong...

In other news: the guys talk karaoke for some reason; an extremely serious discussion happens in 3 points, this is rather strange; Dan has done all three of his marathons now, the last two in two weeks and massive thanks to all the 'Carnage faithful who sponsored him; The Golden State Warriors are your 2015 NBA Champions, beating Lebron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers in 6 games - it’s GSW’s fourth championship and their first in 40 years; Lebron has now made five straight finals, six overall and only won two; The Chicago Blackhawks are your Stanley Cup Champions - on Monday night Patrick Kane thumped home in Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Lightning; Gary Bettman praised the greatest dynasty of the modern age as he awarded the Cup to Duncan Keith, or did he. No – the Cup was stuck in traffic, having been kept at the airport during flash floods of the downtown area. The Cup made it 40 mins late. Bullshit. Said everyone; baseball things happen, Mike tells you about them; NFL things have happened, some of them even about football; loads of Bodean's mailbag goodness and a avcracking game which Erik chairs as Dan and Mike square off for the first time ever. all this and the requesite much, much more...

The Big Man is out of town this evening so Nat and Dan rock up to the studio eager and prepared to go all After Dark when who should arrive but star of stage and screen as well as one of the finest stand-ups on the circuit Mr Jarred Christmas! He soon proves that this is going to be an After Dark After All...
 
Dan get offended by lots of things but nowhere near as offended as young people these days; Jarred reveals a strange relation to bacon; the ratio of Hitler documentaries vs. Stalin documentaries gets a heavy going-over; NFL is pretty quiet but this doesn't stop a once-over including domestic violence, rule breaking and crowd noise being pumped into stadia - pretty much like the regular season then; NHL-wise, in the East it’s last year’s beaten finalist New York Rangers against the Tampa Bay Lightning, who tragically beat the Montreal Canadiens, causing Dan and Mike to lose interest in the Stanley Cup for another year; in the NBA one Conference Final is over, one is about to be… the 2015 NBA Championship will be between, oh why don’t you just be patient; the West is the Golden State Warriors, who closed out against the Memphis Grizzlies in 6, and the Houston Rockets, who made it back from 3-1 and two of the worst performances in NBA history, to beat the LA Clippers in 7; Dan brings back Malett's Mallet but with a twist and it's awesome; loads of Bodean's Mailbag goodness and much, much more...

Nat is on IR with an office (don't ask) so Mike slips into the silky seat of ultimate power and hosts the hell out of this week's show. Dan rocks up to help and the guys are joined by All-Pro Man of Many Sports Phil Spooner who brings up an extremely valid modern social point, although mainly because he lost money...

In other news: Phil is upset about something called cricket but doesn't want to talk about it; some general election stuff gets talked about but only in passing; Dan talks documentaries and socail media; Mike talks box-sets; deflate-gate is a load of... puns mainly - bad ones; the draft gets some deconstruction and Dan reckons his Colts have made their offence too good; in the NHL the Western Conference final will be Blackhawks and Ducks in a very one sided set of ornithological conference semis;  in the East it’s game 7 between the Rangers and the Capitals tonight and game 6 between the Lightning and the Canadiens; in the NBA Conference semi finals Atlanta and Washington have been going back and forth for the last week; Nat sends an MLB round-up in but HdP folds to popular pressure and lets Mike read it; loads of Bodean's Mailbag goodness, 15% more nonsense and much, much more...

Nat, Mike and Dan have been missing you guys, especially seeing as HdP has been keeping them away from you with his sordid "hey guys, got to finish building the studio, y'know" antics. The good news is threefold: it's draft day's eve, draft expert Matt Phillips is in the house and the guys remenisce about the second time they ever did t hings with a lady. No, I didn't want to know either...

In other news: Nat and Mike had a classy lunch together and it turns out Mike has a cocktail named after him; Dan says the word 'hubris' in the best way ever; Matt brings some Steinbeck to the table; Dan lays the moral side of his life bare, it's horrible; Matt delivers a cracking NFL draft round-up; Mike runs a mock draft; the Ducks sweep the Jets; the Canadiennes are 3 up; social media smack-talk gets an outing; baseball is more than back, it's back on the show and Nat runs you through the important bits; the NBA play-offs are properly underway and the Raptors are getting wailed on even after being dropped; Kevin Love has a deeply horrible injury which is hard enough to say, let alone have; loads of good stuff from the Bodean's Mailbag and of course, much, much more...

Mike and Dan assemble in the secret underground lair to go over their plans for world domination and how they're usually ruined when HdP gets drunk and loses the key to the CarnageTank or something* when who should rock up but a man who has the whole world domination thing sorted - people just give him all the shit he could possibly need - Mr Ben Isaacs!

In other news: Dan accepts gifts from people who accept gifts from companies and is conflicted in more than one way; Ben buys something with his own money and boy does it feel good; Dan talks documentaries you need to see; Mike talks the movies of Jason Statham and the guys get surprisingly excited; March Madness is over and Mike tells you all about it; FIghtMadness is also over and we have a winner - listen to find out folks; a rare quiet week in the NFL means just drugs charges and murder trials to compete with the beginnings of draft-frenzy; NHL is coming to the sharp end of the season and it's all abit mental; NBA is coming to the sharp end of the season and it's a bit boring - well, less mental than hockey but them's the breaks; lots of fun in the Bodean's Mailbag and the requisite much, much more...




*There is no CarnageTank, go back to sleep and dream happy dreams which don't involve a thousand foot high war machine implanted with Rex Ryan's brain.

Nat and Mike get to the studio to find two things which please them greatly - HdP's microphone is broken and Dan hasn't arrived yet. They plough straight in then have to do that 'aw, hey buddy, you made it...' thing when Dan rocks up and HdP talks anyway.

In other news: Nat's kids pretend-phone Mike; Mike talks sitcom actors on stage; NFL things happen but less that usual - a rare drop off the radar for the 365-league; March Madness is getting good - you guys have the ESPN player, right...? Dan talks basketball pros and some hockey, including a deeply prescient look at how the Las Vegas team's crowds will be procured; there's a strangely high-brow game which gets low-brow quickly; loads of Bodean's Mailbag goodness, plust the requesite much, much more...

Nat and Mike are so sad that Dan isn't here this week that they plain forget to celebrate, something which is very strange indeed until you realise that all-pro 'Carnage favourite and master of all things sporting MR Erik Janssen is in the house and his hypnotic presence has the guys enraptured...

In other news: for some reason the budget gets discussed; Erik is in fact a creepy step-relation but has the world's greatest collection of sports crap in his attic; NFL free agency keeps happening and ther's a hell of a lot to get through; defences have been the main winners but don't stand still near Chip Kelly, he'll trade you; we talk to our mate Andrew Joseph in Arixzona about March Madness; then we talk about more March Madness and #FightMadness; Erik does hockey, then tests the hell out of Nat and Mike with the first ever guest-made game.
