Episode 27 is in the books and the common theme of the day: Hot Takes.
Founder of the The Anti Odyssey and friend (brother) of the show, Jon Saponara, joined the show to discuss his polarizing article that he wrote about The Chainsmokers and if they will be staples in pop music in 5 years. Jon also went to Game 1 of the Cavs vs. Pacers series so we got into the game and the city of Cleveland itself. (Interview starts around 21 Mins)
We then brought in our resident Hot Takes expert, Playoff Gos aka Jared Gosule, to give us his takes on Kevin Durant, The Thunder, and Aaron Hernandez. We might have to call him Skip Gos after this segment. (Interview starts around 44 Mins)
DG, LTS, and Producer Jim also discussed the Aaron Hernandez news as well as the Carmelo Anthony saga.
Shout out to Jon and Jared for giving us two great interviews. Check it all out on our Soundcloud Page.
Another day, another ridiculous and funny episode from the DMR.
We started off with what everyone is talking about, the United passenger. The guys debated if they would give up their seat. From there, the DMR talked about how they went viral (Thanks Sap) so let’s see if they can keep this momentum…maybe.
Other topics include the Fate of the Furious, a great MVP debate between Harden and Westbrook (Fear the Beard) and how we miss the Jersey Shore on TV.
We’ll leave you with this hypothetical: If you could take 3 people with you on Spring Break to form a Wolfpack, who would it be?
For me, easy: Leonardo Dicaprio, Bradley Cooper, and Gronk. Throw me into the mix and we’re cooking with gasoline as we island hop in the Caribbean.
Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud.
Name a more iconic trio. I’ll wait…
DG, LTS, and Producer Jim. Boom.
The boys of the DMR are back after a brief hiatus. We really don’t have a good excuse for it. I was sick one week, someone has work the next, finding a day, etc. Just amateur hour stuff from a amateur bunch of bloggers and podcasters. I call that the DMR Charm.
We had a lot of catching up to do so we did some clean up in the beginning and started with our trip to Francesa Con. What an event. Mike Zaun didn’t disappoint (sort of) and we have a few stories to tell.
The other big story took a turn into the realm of food and in particular, Bar Taco. We debated on which Bar Taco is the best and does it live up to the hype. From there, we took a look at our very own Lord Tree Sap’s “love” life (HUGE quotes on love) and his story of getting a girls phone number. We then took that to the next level and talked about how we approach females to get phone numbers. I’ll be the first to say that we are NOT ladies men so if you think our tactics are horrible, you now know why.
Other topics include a good discussion about the movie, Get Out, and the madness of the NCAA Tournament.
Strap in for a good episode!
The gang returns for another episode with a good friend and fashion expert making her way to the Dungeon, Emma Cunnington. The conversation focuses on two timely topics in the Grammy Awards and Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 5 fashion show amongst other things.
Everyone gives their take on a solid Grammy show, what we liked/disliked, favorite performances and speeches. Everything is great until DG questions Beyonce and the hype around her performance, which sparks defense from Emma as a loyal member of the #BeyHive.
Things then lead into the Yeezy Season 5 fashion show, as Emma helps break down the looks and trends from Kanye’s newest creations. Dan once again channels his inner Skip Bayless, questioning West’s genius as a fashion designer. LordTreeSap quickly comes to the defense of his hero, putting DG in his place.
DG Editor Note: Let it be clear that I like Beyonce and I like Kanye West. Not trying to go up against any armies. For Beyonce, it came down to I didn’t like the song choices and the performance wasn’t for me. Still respect her a lot. For Kanye West, it was more of a gripe against what he put out in the show. I get how fashion shows are supposed to make statements and it’s not necessarily represents what the designer is going to retail. That being said, I took the stance of the little guy. There are probably so many no name designers trying to make it and if their show consisted of what Kanye put out, they’d be laughed out of the building and it wouldn’t be considered creative. It just didn’t impress me, that’s all. Kanye is still a risk taker and a musical genius. He has definitely studied up on his fashion. I’m also sure he could care less about my opinion so there’s that.
The gang returns with Adrian Zidi live in studio for Super Bowl Sunday.
We are back with our second episode of the new year and it was a definitely a good one. The gang welcomes Adrian Zidi into the studio for an in depth interview, and he couldn’t leave without giving us the first Daily Mix Report freestyle session ever. Shoutout to French Prince for coming through!

The boys of the DMR are back with our first podcast of 2017, and we were joined live in studio by Tommy G (DG’s bro), as he gears up to leave for Florence, Italy at the end of the month. Dan and LTS dish out some knowledge about studying abroad as Florence veterans from the class of ’14.
It happens to be the place where the idea for our website was born. DG actually made a huge study guide on the ins and outs of the city, even though its been three years since our departure. We went into some of our favorite places to visit, clubs and threw in some great stories along the way as we do our best to prep big Tom on the journey he will be embarking on.
We also got into sports toward the end as we discussed the NFL Playoffs, Derrick Rose going missing and the state of the Knicks season now.
Enjoy these pics from our trip as well.
Our very last podcast of 2016 featuring the great Amanda Cesario live in studio. Female fans you are in luck. Enjoy.
Our very last episode of 2016. Thank you to all the listeners for rocking with us for the last 6 months. This edition was a goody, as we had out first female guest in studio with us, the great Amanda Cesario.
We covered a multitude of topics focused around the holiday season.Things got heated when LTS brings up his new phone background, which happened to be of someone he knew. Is that a weird move on his part?
DG hits Mike and Amanda with our very first “In The Mix” speed round where he fired off some quick hitting questions like: crushes growing up, 3 dinner guests and favorite Yorktown bar/Pizza.
The edition concludes with some final thoughts on 2016, as we reflected on what the year meant to us and many of the craziest pop-culture stories of the year. We even dropped a few gems about how life can be beautiful at times even when you’re working hard hating how things are going.
Enjoy the episode. See everyone in next year. Be on the lookout for a revamped podcast come 2017.
Merry Christmas from the DMR.
Ladies and Gentleman, episode 20 is here. Yeah, we’re just as surprised as our loyal listeners are that we made it this far.
Ladies and Gentleman, episode 20 is here. Yeah, we’re just as surprised as our loyal listeners are that we made it this far. It’s crazy we’ve actually done 20 of these things, but with this episode we decided to make some changes, as we even took our first ever caller. Shout out to Eric in Stamford.
The discussion begins as we hash out the Grammy nominations, who we think should win and artists that got snubbed. I got your back Travis Scott. We then went into Kanye West’s next move, as the first photo of him out of the hospital surfaced of him with BLONDE HAIR.
It’s playoff time for the Daily Mix Fantasy League, as DG breaks down the matchups and possible punishments he and producer Jim are staring down. The boys also talked about what role Conor McGregor could play in “Game Of Thrones” as the show is joined by Ain’t No Daisy’s Genovese brothers.
We also went over the state of the union for the Knicks, Jets and Giants. DG channelled his inner-Aaron Rodgers telling fans of the Knicks and Giants to “R-E-L-A-X” as LTS goes off on another Jets rant pleading to Woody Johnson, following the pathetic performance on MNF.
Thanks for the support, enjoy the episode.
