Aaron Rodgers Owns Us + WSD Interviews Mike Squires

Red Line Radio

The boys are reeling from a brutal Packers game and there’s no better way to recover than debating more wedding snake draft drama. We start with a recap of the conflict before settling down into our Bears vs. Packers recap which is mostly just acknowledging that Aaron Rodgers owns us. Even if the refs blew it hard, beating the Packers feels impossible. Nice thing is the club is getting 13 points this week in Tampa. Bad thing is the Blackhawks are downright despicable to start the year. But even so there’s reason to be happy - Mike Squires joins the podcast for an exclusive sit down with WSD about his relationship with John Cusack and what it means to wear the uniform. One of our favorite interviews ever. All Gas No Brakes.You can find every episode of this show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or YouTube. Prime Members can listen ad-free on Amazon Music.
