It is Monday. Many are mourning the losses — or one loss (no spoilers here) — of characters being walloped to the point of no return in The Walking Dead. Luckily for you, humans, the Relatively Speaking Podcast is here to help you overcome this insane adversity.

Jared and Joseph start the show glossing over the NFL. Both believe the weekend was a bit of a dull. For what it is worth, they did manage to find a new show mascot, however.

This leads us to the best segment in all of podcasting history, Bad Tweets.

Jared uses one that involves calling the San Diego Chargers the second best team in the AFC. Joseph pulls one from those mean streets that is boycotting the NBA over someone else boycotting something else entirely. America is grand isn’t it?

After brand new music, the guys do a deep dive into the NBA. Underrated, overrated, MVP candidates, random Bill Russell talk, all involved in this glorious, if not downright life-changing, preview segment.

Absurd Questions is as absurd as usual this week. Joseph wants Forrest Gump to end with Tom Hanks being stepped on by dinosaur ridden by Christian Slater. Jared wants to know what team from another era would be neat to watch in today’s NBA (the answer is none).

Follow Jared on the mean, dark, cold streets of Twitter @JMintzHoops.

You can do the same with the other host who is less articulate @JosephNardone.
