This week Rich regals us with his experience playing basketball on the Suffolk County Freelancers. A rag tag group of misfits who sometime win amateur league basketball games. Then he moves on to his Bowling league and the creepy sad losers who are different from him somehow even though they all bowl in the same league.
This week Rather Be Dead invites back Dan McInerney to help us go through some news articles we found. We talk Tay the Microsoft twitter bot and how no one but assholes would be twitting it to begin with. Then we talk about a root bear that helps with assisted suicide and shame Mike when we realize the real secret of the article. Rich goes on a rant about breakfast cereal mascots after mentioning that furrie’s tweet at Tony the Tiger and we end talking about the Burger King kids club. Listen now and subscribe.
Rather Be Dead Invited Dan McInerney bad as our expert in music lyrics. Have you ever really though about what “A Horse with No Name” means. Or why Color Me Bad is as serious as cancer. Listen and find out.
Today Rather Be dead is proud to showcase the premier episode of our new podcast Wrestler Film Federation. The podcast where three judges pit two films starring professional wrestlers against each other and decide which one deserves to be the winner. For our first film we could not do better than No Holds Barred. This film is amazing and deserves the title of the first ever WFF champion. Mike “Baby Gorilla Hands” McInerney, Rich “The Million Dollar Brain” Spinello, and “Fatty Jackson” judge and score this movie on our 5 category system. Those scores will be used to compare with our next film to see which film will pile drive the other into submission.
We also take a look at some wrestler cameos in movies in our under-card fights. Can Kevin Nash as Super Shredder beat Triple H as a vampire in Blade Trinity? Or will The Big Show’s Captain Insano defeat Macho Man Randy Savage as Bonesaw and take the whole thing? Listen to find out. http://www.wffpodcast.com
This week RBD is honored to have a member of Riot Game’s League of Legends professional broadcasting team to talk professional gaming and video streaming. Can e-sports break out of the stereo type of people sitting alone in their basements and join the realm of main stream sports? We discuss League of Legends and MMOs in general. Where we see the e-sports going in the future and what will make it easier for the masses to get involved in professional gaming.
This week Rich takes control of the show and brings us a new game he created. Netflix life necessity or bottom abyss of madness. We invite our friend Jay in to compete with Mike in this movie themed game show. We try to come up with titles for movies based on their plots and see how many actors we can name in famous movies. Like everything on Rather Be Dead some how it is religious themes. So sit back and chill as we Netflix.
This week the guys of Rather Be Dead talk Star Wars the Force Awakens, dive into the cannon of the galaxy far far away, talk some sad Game of Thrones news, and some random articles we found online. Is believing in god a mental illness? If you could change the color of your poop what would you choose? Listen and Subscribe
Happy New Years Rather Be Dead is happy to be back and excited for a new year of podcasting. A quick broadcasting note here. RBD will be going back to posting every other week instead of every week. The reason for this is that we will be starting a second podcast. That show will also post ever other week. So if you need a weekly fix of Rich and I that can still happen. More information on the new podcast will be posted here as it comes together. However for now lets jump into 2016 head first in the shallow end.
This week we are trying out a new segment. Clickbait the fake news game show. Mike and Rich invite some special guests tot he show for this special episode. We welcome back our old friend Scott and host of the main event Mike Knapp joins in on the fun and test out this new game.
Listen to the guys try to figure out how many eyeballs a man has up his ass or for what unusual reason two boys hired hookers. If you like the game and want us to do it it again reach out to us on twitter @rbdpodcast or email email@example.com.
Links to all the articles we used are listed in the read more section.

Hey guys RBD’s Mike here. Quick note about this episode since it is the Holiday season and it also happens to be my daughters birthday season things have been busy at RBD studios this past week. Hence the shorter than usual episode. The next few weeks will be a little different for RBD we have a lot of things coming up and less and less time to spend working on these episodes especially me trying to edit these things. So I apologize if they are not up to our regular standards but we will be back in January with all new episodes fresh off the recorder for you. With that said enjoy today’s thrilling episode…
