Spencer “Shortsnout” Strasmore is back to sniffing in the tall weeds as conflicts build in his hometown, Las Vegas and a tulpa-filled dream world. Is this Evan T. Reilly’s homage to Lynch/Frost? Who facilitated the Ricky-leak? Will ASM be sold to IMG? Does Charles not understand doctor/patient confidentiality? Uncertainty is swirling in the Ballersverse, but we’re here to help navigate through it.
This week is a celebration of reunions—of Mr. Anderson and his brother Julian, of Ricky and Julie, and of the Ballers themselves! That’s right, this week we have a special reunion episode, featuring our initial reactions to “I Hate New York,” a progress report on Mr. Seifert’s job as the Miami Dolphin’s GM, and the latest baller rankings. So strap in, Ballersverse!
After breaking some fresh Ballers news, BOB asks the tough questions about the latest episode of HBO’s smash hit. Is Ballers pivoting to become a show about VR porn? Is the piss man baller of the week? Does Seifert come off as a religious zealot? Is Spence going to betray his friend, investor, and client Vern? We look at all the angles of the latest from the Emmy nominated series Ballers.
Ricky is suffering technical difficulties, and so is Ballers on Ballers. We will be back this weekend with our Baller of the Week (some SD cards have CTE). While Spencer is busy being sort of a dick trying to save Vernon’s contract AND move an NFL team, Ricky can’t remember roses, sex, or his own address (save that to your Uber profile Jarret!). We’re concerned. Luckily Chloe is still falling on the sword for our favorite Ballers.
Rest easy, world, Ballers has been renewed for season 4. But today we’re celebrating episode 3 of season 3 “In the Teeth”. We ask the hard questions this week: Is Siefert a mentor or nemesis? Why didn’t Dennis go to Sin City with the Rickey? Does ‘Glazed and Confused’ still suck? Then, a fan favorite finally makes it onto this year’s Baller Rankings.
All aboard! We bull rush through the latest episode of the Emmy-nominated Ballers on the Taaka Express Train, taking shots at Vernon, Rickey, and Spencer. Our latest Baller of the Week standings will leave you stunned and a bit confused. But stick around for our unanimous Personal Baller Moment of the Week, an accomplishment long in the making.
For Ballers season 2 episode 7 ‘Everybody Knows’, we analyze Charles’ front office acumen, the Jerret family drama, Mr. Anderson’s financial fumble, Andre’s power play and both Spencer and Jay Glazer’s ceaseless downward spirals. Everybody knows that Rashard Mendenhall is a (Super Bowl winning) world class athlete – we discuss the renaissance man’s blooming writing career. BONUS SEGMENT (55:00) – we breakdown the Ballers schedule, mourning the upcoming week off (suck it Labor Day) and fawn over the courageous, baller move of scheduling the final three episodes of season two against NFL Sunday Night games.
Evan T. Reilly may be taking a mid-season siesta, but Ballers on Ballers never rests. This week we discuss our disappointment with Dennis’s meddling (RIP #Ricky2NOLA), Tyrod Taylor trade rumors, Charles’ first assignment (seeya Kovac), give Rob Weiss free advice (Reggie+Joe=profits), cover the temptation of Joe (suck it Andre), and update our listeners on the latest in the War on Ballers (looking at you, ESPN). Then, we give out our Least Baller of the Week, Baller of the Week, and Personal Baller Moment of the Week.
Ballers! What a week. Rhianna gets a career boost from this week’s name-drop, we debate the morals of adopting exotic pets, andNate proves to be a better friend than Reggie – but Joe and Reggie find common ground and begin a beautiful journey of their own. Spencer’s trying to beat the NFLPA and an opiate addiction, but not before beating the arrogance out of Travis on the bench press. All aboard the bus – next stop Pill Farm! BAAAAAALLERRRRRRRRRRRRS.
Ballers on Ballers this week catches you up on the latest Dwayne Johnson news and breaks down all the action from Ballers latest episode, ‘World of Hurt’. We give the show-runners some free advice (you’re welcome), spare some harsh words for Mr. Seifert, hold our breath with Vernon, reveal the latest action in the war on Ballers, and shake our collective head at Spencer’s poor decisions (did you catch the pill-snatching?). It’s a wild week, which wouldn’t be complete without our Least Baller of the Week, Baller of the Week, and Baller Moment of the Week.
This week the boys discuss science vs. spirituality, #Ricky2NOLA, and whether or not Ryan Tannenhill is an elite QB in the #Ballerverse. John and Jesse also debate the moral dilemma facing Vern: should he tell the truth and risk losing his contract or lie and risk losing himself? Plus Spice Adams, trips to Taco Bell, and this week’s Ballers of the Week!
Tensions run high as bitter rivals Spencer and Andre joust for Sizz’s love. We also check in on Charles’ future, Ricky/TTD’s relocation plans (#Ricky2NOLA), Tracy’s crusade against employer bias and Reggie’s thirst for self actualization. Shout outs to Miami-Dade County’s newest NBA legend, The Rock’s burgeoning political influence, Andy Garcia’s filmography, California livin’ and NOLA love abound as we dig into yet another trailblazing Ballers episode.
What is there to say? Ballers. Is. Back. So are your favorite Ballers experts: Ballers on Ballers. Spencer ‘Strasmore’ Darr and John ‘Bill$’ Beisner kick of this season of ballers with an in-depth breakdown of Ricky’s contract battle (pay that man!), TTD’s return, and, of course, Spencer’s epic throwdown with ‘T Sizzle’ on ‘Glazed and Confused’. But those ex-rivals aren’t the only duo squaring off over ‘Glazed and Confused.’ Jesse ‘the Brick’ Laier steps in at 39:45 to catch our listeners up on the Dan Le Batard – ESPN controversy raging behind the scenes of Ballers. It wouldn’t be Ballers on Ballers if we didn’t give out our choice for Least Baller of the Week, Baller of the Week, and Baller Moment of the Week. Guess what? We do.
The Ballers throw dirt onto the Miami Heat’s NBA season, talk smack on the Trash Bros, discuss Karl Anthony Towns’ offseason career as a Twitch streamer, and make a case for the Oklahoma City Thunder’s championship chances.

We experience an Original TTD Joint, Joe checks out commercial real estate, while Spencer checks in on an old peer. PLUS: we check up on Dave from Taco Bell and make plans for the Ballers Finale Pool Party.
We attended weddings. We may have found God. We also may have inadvertently gotten “David” from Taco Bell fired and/or killed.
