Knockahoma Nation Episode 59

The WISEst Podcast in America.

This week on the Knockahoma Nation podcast we have our buddy Andy Wise on the program. Andy’s a former consumer investigator and three-time Emmy Award nominee for investigative reporting. With his new operation, Wise Choices, Andy does the work for you: he conducts the research, he vets the businesses and he puts his seal of approval on the businesses you can trust to be YOUR Wise Choices.

Most importantly, Andy’s a huge Braves fan and we’ve become buddies with him on Twitter. He went to Dunwoody High School and grew up a Braves fan and tells us call kinds of cool stories from back in the day.

Josh and Ken talk “big picture” stuff. What are the Braves going to do with all these arms? How good is Ender? What happens if/when Christian Pache starts knocking on the door? Can “Flo-zuki” be replaced?

Also on the show this week – Josh tells the story of “Slaughter’s Mad Dash.” This is a famous play that happened in the 1946 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals. It involved Hall of Famer Enos Slaughter and a few other cast members. The play ended up determining the winner of the series in the deciding Game 7.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 58

It’s early, it’s only mid-May, but the Atlanta Braves are in first place? Will it last? Is this offense sustainable? We talk about this on this week’s podcast. We also wax philosophic about Nick Markakis, out of Young Harris. What’s funny is the narrative being written about Nick’s insanely hot start to this season. Folks are painting the picture that he’s been terrible up until 2018. Well, we set the record straight on this with good ole fashioned facts.

Josh also tells the story of that time the Atlanta Braves drafted Tom Seaver in 1966. True story. By all accounts, Tom Seaver should have been a Brave and the course of history could have been much different for the Braves in the 70’s had that happened. But something weird happened. Listen to find out.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 57

Bandwagon Breakdown

Last week Ken banned Josh from the show for a week. This week he’s sticking to it, sort of. This week Ken is joined by Andy Harris and Matt Chrietzberg from Outfield Fly Rule to talk about the current state of the Braves, to help anyone jumping back on the 1st place Braves bandwagon catch up with the past few years, and to visit with an old friend of Dansby Swanson’s. It’s a ton of fun, Braves chat, and other shenanigans. Ken can’t ever quite keep Josh totally away, so he does drop by with just a few minutes of wisdom from a week of being away. As always, thanks for listening.

Episode 56 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

The days of Ronald Acuña are upon us, Knockahoma Nation. Also, Ozzie Albies is really good, Johan Camargo needs to start, Austin Riley is tearing it up, and much more. This week the boys are joined by Ken’s father in law, Pastor and former College baseball coach Robbie Jones, and Josh and Ken remind folks what this podcast is all about.

Episode 55 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

This week we are joined by our buddy Michael Kelly from House of Cards. You might know Michael from his role as Doug Stamper on House of Cards. But, did you know that Michael’s from Lawrenceville, Georgia and is a huge Atlanta Braves fan? Turns out, Michael is nothing like Doug. He’s actually a great guy and not scary whatsoever.

Me and Ken also do a recap of the week in Knockahoma Nation. We take a moment of silence out for Lane Adams and moments after Ken declares that Brian Snitker should bench Ryan Flaherty (despite his insanely hot start) to start Johan Camargo every day, the Face of the Braves, Johan Camargo himself, wins the baseball game while Ken was trying to record a podcast.

Episode 54 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

The Unexpected Braves

It’s safe to say that the Bravos are better than anyone (except Josh) projected them to be. It’s still early, but so far this team has been fun to watch (even after that weird game in Chicago yesterday).

This week on the podcast Josh and Ken talk about:

  • Is Ozzie Albies the greatest second baseman of all time?
  • Is A.J. Minter the best pitcher? Or the best pitcher ever?
  • Dansby Swanson looks like a brand new man.
  • Josh gets political
  • Ken gets traditional
  • and much more!

Episode 53 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

After a couple of weeks of Atlanta Braves baseball, it’s looking like the Bravos aren’t that bad. It’s also looking Brian Snitker might know what he’s doing. It’s almost like Brian Snitker has been managing baseball players since 1982 or something and none of us have. Very interesting.

This week on the podcast:

  • LIVE and exclusive footage of the 2018 Braves Masturds (a tradition unlike any other)
  • Josh teaches us about UZR
  • Ken talks about the foundation of the podcast and some of the advanced metrics of baseball
  • The boys review this past week in Braves Country

Episode 52 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

Nickahoma Nation

Welcome to season two of Knockahoma Nation. Baseball is back and we’re out of our minds as usual.

This week we are joined by Dan Horton to talk about season predictions for pitchers, a look at the first few games, and an ode to Nick Markakis. With Markakis’ walk off homer on Opening Day Josh and Dan take a moment to bask in the glory of the grecian god of right fielders.

We also get a visit from Braves Options guy breaking down the opening day roster and some of his expectations for the year, a little bit of emotional pageantry, and of course a look at some options.

As always thanks for listening Knuckleheads, and chop on!

Wives & Dinghies

It’s been a year, Knockahoma Nation. One full year. You’ve wasted an entire year listening to us being complete dinguses. Seriously, tho, we hope you’ve had as much fun as we’ve had.

For our one-year anniversary episode, we’ve asked our wives to join us. After Wife Brown spilled the beans on some things about Josh, we’ve now questioned our decision to bring her on. Apparently, Charlie Culberson’s mom used to babysit them both when they were in diapers.

We also attempt to give Ben Durinio and Scott Coleman some relationship advice. Ben used to write for our friends over at Talking Chop, and Scott writes for them now. This past week they got into a heated battle on who hates the Braves more. We offered to have them on the show, but they’ve not responded to our inquiries.

Have fun. Enjoy our one-year anniversary episode. And remember – Don’t take yourselves too seriously. Baseball’s fun.

This week on the podcast, Josh hangs out with the one and only Braves Options Guy! They talk about Jon Heyman tickling Scott Boras tush, Ronald Acuña’s hat, and imaginary racists. Then Ken and Josh talk about the NCAA Tournament, Baby Blue, a deep scientific discussion about elevation as it relates to sea level, and cheering for the Damn Yankees. We also find out who Josh’s celebrity crush is, and what he thinks of Julia Roberts and her money.
