White Sox Dave Chugs Milk
The Bears are 1-1 after a massive win against the Bengals. But the real story is White Sox Dave's insatiable thirst for 1% milk and a profound need to prove himself worthy. The end result is one of the funniest moments in RLR history as we kick off our 2nd week of doing two Red Line Radios. We say All Gas No Brakes a lot but this episode is really worth the designation.

MLB Got It Wrong + Chicago Baseball Is Unstoppable
Deep conversation this week about the state of MLB and it's not great. Tyler Glasnow motivated the guys to really dig into why MLB is making these changes. WSD is loaded with evidence that something fishy is going on. Carl has a hunch there will be severe consequences while Eddie and Chief can't help but wonder why MLB can't get out of it's own way. Elsewhere we have some more seating controversy as well as some passionate excitement about the Chicago baseball scene. Two first place teams halfway through June is exactly what this city need.

Vintage classic WSD alongside hard hitting analysis about the White Sox. After that Carl drops some data bombs on the group about how special the Cubs season is shaping up. Some Bulls news.

Carlos Rodon + Joey Mulinaro
Barstool Chicago is joined by White Sox starter Carlos Rodon to talk about his no hitter against Cleveland and 2021 emergence.

Elsewhere, Chief is on an absolute rampage against the Chicago Blackhawks while everyone is willing to declare the Bulls officially dead. After that we have to anxiously await our NFL Mock Draft analysis but Carl is certain the Bears move up for a QB. We'll find out next week. All Gas No Brakes!!!

WSD Hates Tony + Blackhawks With Pat Boyle
Pat Boyle (48:19) joins Barstool Chicago this week to breakdown the Hawks trade deadline and the 4th quarter of their season. Before and after, WSD explains why Tony LaRussa is the worst manager of all time and not fit to lead the White Sox. Carl does his best not to cancel the season 11 games in with the spin zone of the century. The Bulls suck. The Bears are much worse. We're going to be here for you every step of the way All Gas No Brakes!!!
Apr 15, 2021
Cancel The Baseball Season
Barstool Chicago welcomes back the MLB season in traditional fashion: getting WSD worked up about something stupid while Carl bitches about the Cubs offense.

Afterwards we get into trade deadline for the Blackhawks while things are looking up for the Bulls. Don't ask us about the Bears All Gas No Brakes!
Apr 08, 2021
White Sox Dave Is Horny For A Cartoon Lion + OPENING DAY
It's Opening Day and we have a big show to go with it but first we need to figure out if WSD wants to bang Nala from Lion King. It's been kicked around for years and we finally get to the bottom of it. After that it's a heavy baseball show to get ready for the start of baseball season in Chicago and across MLB. All Gas No Brakes!

Mar 25, 2021
March Madness with Cam Krutwig + Tyler Underwood
The Bears sign Andy Dalton so we spend the first half of the show commiserating over that fact. It's awful news that has the room disgusted on so many levels. After that we get into March Madness with two great player conversations with Tyler Underwood (43:17) from Illinois and Cam Krutwig (1:09:17) from Loyola. Get your brackets filled out and let's have ourselves a deep Illini run All Gas No Brakes!
Mar 18, 2021
Barstool Sportsbook Launch Day
It's the biggest day in Barstool Chicago history and we have a loaded All Gas No Brakes podcast to join the news. Blackhawks might get a trade deadline boost but not from a typical trade deadline source. The Cubs and Sox are letting fans in the stadium and WSD is on a quest to make opening day. Elsewhere Carl just plain and simple feels bad for Allen Robinson and awesome for Brad Underwood. The Illini are officially the #1 basketball team in Chicago even if the Bulls are so close to being kind of back!
Mar 11, 2021
Pink Whitney Vs. White Sox Dave
Ryan Whitney joins the show to talk Blackhawks playoff chances with Chief and it's honestly a quite lovely conversation. Then WSD gets involved and things turn ugly for the better as a new rivalry is born. After that we get into the usual mix with a deeper look at the Bulls matchup problems, the slow start to Spring Training, Bears quarterback rumors and the Fighting Illini bulldozing Michigan. Loaded show at a time of the year things are about to take off. We'll be around for all of it ALL GAS NO BRAKES!!!

The Blackhawks & Bulls Are Actually Pretty Good
All Gas No Brakes!!!!!
Feb 25, 2021
Eddie Broke His Ankle + JJ Watt To The Bears?
Sad news to start the show as Eddie moves to the 6-8 week disabled list in a walking boot. There's not prospects of a hard cast but we do get into some Chicago snow etiquette that will have you fondly remembering our days on Sirius XM. After that we start cranking the sports content hard with a Bulls round table that should have you double checking which podcast you're listening too. Chief then throws some sauce around the Blackhawks that makes the rest of the room perk up because it's starting to feel different. Carl and WSD do a familiar song and dance around Chicago baseball albeit this time with the tables flipped. And finally there's some rumors about JJ Watt loving Chicago and we're quick to throw some reactions on that. Early drop tonight because the Bulls won by 3. ALL GAS NO BRAKES!
Feb 18, 2021
Rico Bosco + College Hoops + Carson Wentz Reactions
Rico Bosco joins the show to talk about winning the grand prize against Eddie and WSD on the weekend's live stream. We then get real deep on college hoops including the Loyola Drake matchup, Illini futures, Big Ten in March, Northwestern future vs. Mizzou right now and a bunch of other shit about college basketball we normally don't do. After that we get into all the Bears trade rumors, if the Bulls should take, are the Hawks good? and where to WSD and Carl stand shortly before pitchers and catchers report!
Feb 11, 2021
Cowboy Dave + Bears Legend Kevin Butler
Cowboy Dave is back from NYC and he's probably got the most unbelievable story to start the podcast. Like he should legitimately be dead after his trip to New York. The boys get into Eddie and WSD's trip to Detroit for the Super Bowl Electric Chair Show of a lifetime. After that we're joined by Chicago Bears legend and Super Bowl XX Champion Kevin Butler to talk about Super Bowl week, life as a Bear, kicking at Soldiers and some quality Ditka stories. We naturally follow with realistic yet damning realizations about the Cubs. Chief is turning on the 2021 Blackhawks. White Sox Dave is still mad at Jerry Reinsdorf but at least the Bulls are a much better watch these days. Classic Red Line Radio touching all our bases in this episode including the Illini basketball team. Everything's pointing up going into The Big Game ALL GAS NO BRAKES!
Feb 04, 2021
Lance Lynn + Bears QB Rumors
The boys are joined by White Sox standout starting pitcher Lance Lynn about his move to Chicago, relationship with TLR and expectations for 2021. After that we round table the misery of Chicago Cubs vs. the promise of the White Sox. There's major Bears speculation for quarterback but harsh realities with the salary cap. Elsewhere the Hawks may stink but Chief hasn't missed a second and loves some players. Loaded show because the Bulls are actually back and officially in the Red Line Radio rotation. All Gas No Brakes!
Jan 28, 2021
Kris Bryant + Bears & Deshaun?
Kris Bryant joins the show for the 2nd time in as many seasons to talk about life as a Chicago Cub, whether he's still having fun and if he remembers his opening day stat line. For a guy who gets a lot of shit for being vanilla, he's been really anything but that with us. Before and after, we get into Deshaun Watson coming to the Bears, the Cubs pathetic offseason, whether WSD should be mad at Jerry or eager to watch good baseball and exactly just how much the Blackhawks suck right now. PS THE BULLS ARE BACK. All Gas No Brakes!
Jan 21, 2021
The Bad News Bears + Ryan Arcidiacono
The Bears post season press conference might be a low point since the Trestman years and we're here to talk about it. Just absolutely embarrassing stuff out of Halas Hall. We pick ourselves up with a dynamite drop in from Ryan Arcidiacono to go behind the scenes of winning Jim Nantz's tie at the Final Four. Amazing story from the Bulls guard as we start buying more and more stock in the team. After that we get a deep Blackhawks preview from Chief in the wake of the season opener even they don't deserve it. Carl & Dave then breakdown the White Sox offseason vs. some of the potential Cubs moves coming. Loaded show with a little bit of everything for everyone All Gas No Brakes FIRE TED PHILLIPS!
Jan 13, 2021
2020 Bears seaSon comes to an end with a heartbreaking loss to the Saints. We're ready to close the book and move on, even if we don't even know what that means. We just know the next decade can't possibly be as cruel as the last. ALL GAS NO BRAKES.

Bears vs. Saints Playoff Show With Ben Mintz
The Bears are in the playoffs for just the 6th time in the last 25 seasons which doesn't sound promising but we love the matchup. Barstool rookie and incredibly knowledgeable Saints fan Ben Mintz ("Mintzy") joins us to get an honest look at the matchup. It's not perfect on paper but it could be worse for the Bears save for it being Drew Brees's last postseason run. For what it's worth, everyone loves the Bears +10. After that we get into the future of Notre Dame, college bowl season (generally), the surging Baby Bulls, Boog Sciambi, Liam Hendricks, Blackhawks, World Juniors and whether or not you should tank or build culture. Probably our best show of all time but we're biased. Huge weekend for the Bears. Dear God please let us win a playoff game ALL GAS NO BRAKES!

BEARS ARE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS! (After Losing To The Packers)
The Bears lose to the Packers, we are off to the playoffs at 8-8 nonetheless. Was it really a 19-point loss or are is there momentum to be had with the 2020 Bears? The Boys debate ferociously with the Saints looming. Is there any reason to care about the playoffs? Or is it just a complete waste of everyone's time? We'll find out next weekend ALL GAS NO BRAKES
Jan 04, 2021
It's Packers Week with the playoffs on the line and it all comes down to this Sunday. Biggest game of the year and definitely Mitch's life. The boys are all sorts of fired up for this weekend. After, we get into the state of the Cubs rebuild, the White Sox offseason strategy, Notre Dame vs. Alabama and the Blackhawks awful failure to protect Kirby Dach. All the more reason we need the Bears this weekend ALL GAS NO BRAKES!
Dec 31, 2020
Bears absolutely thrash the Jags in the biggest game of the year. Allen Robinson is a monster. David Montgomery is star in the making. Mitch made his throws and the Jaguars absolutely sucked throughout the afternoon. A perfect way to 8-7 and now Barstool Chicago can't figure out the playoff scenario or who wants to play Aaron Rodgers. It's predictably a complete mess and we wouldn't have it any other way. Opinions are FLYING on this post game show so grab a notebook and follow along. The Packers are so fucked. ALL GAS NO BRAKES.
Dec 27, 2020
Bears vs. Jags w/ Coach Duggs
Coach Duggs joins Barstool Chicago to preview the pivotal Jaguars matchup this Sunday. Before and after we break down the Bears playoff chances, Ryan Pace's best draft picks (rounds 2-5) and why the 2020 Bears are even more frustrating. Following Bears we close the books on Tony La Russa DUI criticism but not before getting mad at Jerry. Chief and Dave address their championship losses while Carl gets into the ILLINI new hire Bret Bielema. Lots of good college vibes including an appearance from the undefeated SIU Salukis. Thanks to Miller Lite for making it happen. Happy Holidays. All Gas No Brakes!
Dec 23, 2020
We're thinking about the playoffs with the Bears surging to 7-7 with serious momentum after beating the Vikings. Maybe we're suckers but it's a completely different team. David Montgomery was amazing behind a reshuffled offensive line and obviously Mitch looked pretty damn good. All around phenomenal game from the boys and now we're on to Jacksonville.
Dec 20, 2020
Stan Bowman Got A Promotion
Big round table day with the full crew as we get into the Stan Bowman promotion. Chief's not happy about it for good reason. Bears are basically in the playoffs already before we get into some of the best college football talk this side of the Ohio River Valley. WSD and Carl follow with some old school RLR baseball talk about why the owners are blood sucking scoundrels. All Gas No Brakes!!!
Dec 17, 2020
Mitch > Watson?
Bears/Texans postgame show where the boys talk through what they want to happen the rest of the season, Mitch's great performance, the big game next week, and more.
Dec 13, 2020
The Coach K Show + Fire Nagy
The Illini basketball team have saved Carl from a depressing winter with a statement game over Coach K. Later in the show we get real deep into Coach K's roots as a Chicago guy, but not before we put a ribbon on how much the Bears suck. WSD also has some strong words for Adam Eaton now that he has a chance to complain about his team being good. PS Notre Dame is still undefeated ALL GAS NO BRAKES!!!
Dec 10, 2020
Thanks to Miller Lite for being there in a time of need, like when the Bears blow a late 10-point 4th quarter lead. Arguably one of the worst losses in the last 30 years. Matt Nagy obviously needs to get fired but otherwise the boys didn't look to shitty. A perfect game for the perfectly infuriating season. 2020 needs to end pronto. In the mean time we'll be throwing back the lites to get through it. All Gas No Brakes.
Dec 06, 2020
Brad Underwood + Chief vs. WSD
Friend of the program and Illini basketball coach Brad Underwood joins the show to talk 2020 college hoops for his 3rd appearance in RLR history. We also spend some time on the Bears, Cubs and White Sox futures before settling into college football. From there, Chief & WSD have an extremely passionate argument that may or may not get a little personal. Spoiler Alert: Northwestern lost last weekend so obviously there's fireworks. ALL GAS NO BRAKES!
Dec 03, 2020
The Bears Suck But At Least We Have Miller Lite
Really no other way to put it. The Bears suck but at least we have great tasting less filling Miller Lite to fall back on. That's our silver lining as the Bears' defense gets absolutely gashed for 41 points. No one would be mad if the McCaskey family sold the team tomorrow, that's a fact. And while the season's not mathematically over, the Bears should probably just fire everyone and move on already. Start the rebuild. All Gas No Brakes.
Nov 30, 2020
Happy Thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving from Barstool Chicago with a classic 4-man show that starts with Carl & Dave at each other's throats about the Cubs impending rebuild. The Bears play Sunday with a chance to win back Ed's prediction that the season is over. Chief thinks Notre Dame can win the national championship. WSD feels the same about Northwestern. Gravy is a side All Gas No Brakes Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Nov 25, 2020
Big Cat + Reags
Big Cat joins the crew to get over the devastating Theo Epstein news and it totally sucks that we're moving on from our leader. Making matters worse, the Bears have lost 4 straight and we don't know who to blame. We're just a broken and confused group of guys that want to watch our teams do better. We follow our pity party with some heavy college football and a good look at the NBA draft with the internet's #1 college basketball expert, Bobby Reags. We get into Patrick Williams as a Bull, his career at FSU and whether Karnivore just struck gold. We're hanging on by a thread but we'll get through it. All Gas No Brakes!
Nov 19, 2020
The Bears Offense Is A Complete Joke
Another week in the books for the 2020 Bears and another embarrassing loss at the hands of the offense. This time it's probably the worst offensive game since Craig Krenzel took the snap. We're devastated after a 5-1 start to find ourselves in this position. The offensive line is atrocious. Quarterback play is atrocious. Nothing seems to work as the Bears move into the Bye Week on a 4-game skid. It's basically win or go home at this point and that's a bad thing with our remaining schedule. Does Nagy have a miracle in him or is 2020 over? Tune in for our reactions. All Gas No Brakes.
Nov 17, 2020
Olin Kreutz + DUI Expert From Arizona
It's pretty much win or go home for the Chicago Bears and honestly nobody's talking about it because Tony La Russa got another DUI. This week we break down both with Criminal Defense attorney and Arizona DUI expert, Jeff Mehrens and Bears' legend Olin Kreutz. Mr. Mehrens takes us inside the legal road and challenges ahead of TLR that should help everyone get a better grip of what's going on. After that Olin joins us for what you'd call a Very Honest Conversation about the 2020 Chicago Bears. We get into Ryan Pace's future, baffling offseason decisions and whether Ted Phillips should update LinkedIn. Thanks to Miller Lite for making it happen and congrats to Notre Dame on beating Clemson. It's National Championship or bust for the Irish. All Gas No Brakes!!!
Nov 12, 2020
The Bears Suck
Not much to say you don't already know. The Chicago Bears got destroyed by the Tennessee Titans and it wasn't even close. Matt Nagy might be at his rock bottom with the Bears but it actually feels worse. O-Line is embarrassing. Quarterback play is arguably worse. Somehow this team is 5-4 and still marching towards the playoffs but it actually feels impossible. God Bless all the believers out there. Lots of football left but we need all your prayers. All Gas No Brakes.
Nov 08, 2020
Taylor Lewan & Will Compton (The Boys) + Ron Kittle
Taylor Lewan and Will Compton from Bussin With The Boys join the show this week to preview Bears vs. Titans from the comfort of a Tennessee Titan off day. We go behind the scenes of what it's like to prepare for the Chicago Bears including some shit on Akiem Hicks you literally won't believe. Good luck to Taylor in his recovery and thank you for the amazing Khalil Mack reference. After that we're joined by former White Sox All Star Ron Kittle to talk about the Tony La Russa hire. Kittle played 484 MLB games with the White Sox, all under TLR. He has great insight into Tony's strengths and should have everyone feeling positive vibes. Huge weekend for the Bears and the Irish and sure maybe even WSD's Northwestern Wildcats. All Gas No Brakes!!!!
Nov 05, 2020
Bears Lose Heartbreaker To Saints
Miller Lite is delicious and this podcast title says it all. Bears lose in absolutely devastating fashion after dominating almost all of the 1st half. Lots of finger pointing but end of the day the Bears played hard and the playoffs are very much on our mind. We have to bounce back and we know the Bears will. Huge game next weekend in Nashville. Lots of room for improvement but this squad is up for the challenge. All Gas No Brakes.

WSD Has COVID + Kyle Long + John Scott
The Red Line Radio crew is back again this week over zoom because WSD has COVID. We start with a full breakdown of the disease and whether WSD's immune system is stronger than the Bears' offensive line. To fully answer that question we bring on former Chicago Bear great Kyle Long. In an extremely candid conversation we get into the nitty gritty of the 2020 Bears and whether #75 has a comeback in him. After that we're joined by NHL legendary enforcer John Scott as Chief continues to bulldoze awesome hockey interviews. In and around we talk college football, World Series reactions and whether it really matters the White Sox may/may not hire Tony La Russa. All Gas No Brakes!

The Bears Got Destroyed On Monday Night Football
The boys are reeling after the Bears got absolutely mollywhopped by the LA Rams on Monday Night Football. Just a putrid game all around from offense to special teams to quarterback play to Nagy's play calling. One of the most disappointing and disgusting games in recent memory but there's good news. The Bears are 5-2 with 9 games left en route to the playoffs. A couple quick fixes and this team can do some damage. We just need to talk ourselves out of this humiliating loss first. All Gas No Brakes.
Oct 27, 2020
Stan Bowman + Brandon Thorn
Arguably the biggest show in Red Line Radio history as we're joined by Blackhawks General Manager Stan Bowman to face Chief's music. It's an unqualified must listen interview and landmark moment in both Stan and Chief's lives. Much respect to Stan coming into Barstool Chicago HQ.

Bears Beat Giants. Hooray.

The Bears are back in the win column after beating the New York Football Giants 19-14. It's the Giants smallest margin of defeat of the year and their 7th loss in a row, but that won't stop the boys from finding some silver linings in this win.

Bears Down In London

Bears lose 24-21 and there's a lot of finger pointing to go around. We try to keep it together in the midst of a 3-2 start. Everyone had this circled for a win and instead we're crushed going into the bye week. The schedule doesn't get any easier while the O-Line needs to get much better.

Bears Beat Vikings 16-6

BEARS WIN BEARS WIN BEARS WIN. Thank God. 3-1 feels soo good after everyone was ready to jump after Week 1's offense. Big items this week are no Roquan Smith. No Mitch. No Gabriel, Long, Hicks and on it goes but doesn't matter. The Monsters Of The Midway dominated the Vikings yesterday and that has the Red Line Radio boys dancing in the street. Is Chase good enough to keep defenses guessing? Or will Mitch be missed way more than we're already admitting? Is Kwaitkowski as good as White Sox Dave says? We do some schedule look ahead, announce our watch party for next week and of course take a great voicemail from Gas Money Bob about the 1985 Bears week 4 cruise over the R-Words. All Gas No Brakes. Thank you Miller Lite.

Carl and Dave follow with the next step in their ultimate rebuild team: Manager. Chief squeezes in some Blackhawks talk for the diehards around a grabbag designed to transition you from childhood summer in to childhood fall. No promises but keep your eyes open for a White Sox Dave punt pass and kick contest. All Gas No Brakes!!!

To that, we're joined by 670's Bears beat writer, Chris Emma for early observations on the Bears training camp so far including Khalil Mack's first time preseason practicing as a Bear. And of course Carl gives the Cubs the love they deserve after a big Brewers sweep this weekend. But before all that, we have intern DC in studio to talk about his 14 hour assignment at Lollapalooza this weekend as well as the Barstool Chicago Putting contest and Eddie's first time at a club in over 10 years. DC sticks around to tell a classic WSD story before we really get into the big sports stories from this week. No voicemails which is your fault. 224. 544. 9194. All Gas No Brakes!!!

Is Stan on the hot seat Or Not? After that we bring on Coach to talk Wildcat football and then visit with Carl about how he thinks the Cubs are trying to get to him with all this shoddy bullpen play. After, WSD defends his stance on cupsnakes and why he's extra salty about Rick Hahn's offseason which has absolutely NOTHING to do with Machado. Hint: look at the Twins. After that we got a small grabbag and some delicious All Gas No Brakes Beefs to obviously be washed down responsibly with some ice cold Miller Lites. Heyhowyadoin!

All Gas No Brakes!!!!

Jul 23, 2019
Kris Bryant + Cup Snakes

The most controversial Red Line Radio to date follows the aftermath of Wrigley Usher LigmaBallSack getting fired for talking Cup Snakes on Dog Walk. And spoiler alert - it's total bullshit. The boys recap the chaos then turn it over to a brief yet insightful interview with future Hall of Famer Kris Bryant. It remains to be seen if the Cubs fire KB for coming on our show much like they did to LigmaBallSack. In and around that, we get an update on the Humboldt Park Gator and a bunch of other shit but honestly does any of that matter with Ligma out of a job? Does Kris Bryant like to cuddle and eat pancakes with his wife? Tune in this week to find out. All Gas No Brakes!!! 

Jul 16, 2019
Live From The Nosebleeds

GMA&E Chicago Sports Fans - this week we're joined by Craig Button, the NHL's Mel Kiper to break down all things Blackhawks and NHL draft with our very own Chief and they do not disappoint starting at 39:20 to close out the show.

Before that, we open with light Bears updates before going into Bulls draft chatter with Eddie blowing Colby White's cover at 7 overall. After that Carl and Dave get into White Sox / Cubs Crosstown talk for a solid chunk including a mini Carl rant about why WSD is being a coward before he goes off the deep end and explains that it was a positive 2-5 road trip for the Cubs. WSD closes the show with his own grabbag that makes everyone uncomfortable especially Eddie. All Gas No Brakes!!!

After, WSD (17:02) gives us the best White Sox talk we've heard in a long time and introduces the White Sox Dave playoff meter. Opposite that, Carl (33:10) talks Cubs/Cardinals sweep, Kimebrel and the Cubs bullpen, and why this team is a lot better than anyone else gives credit. Chief (48:50) gives his game 7 Stanley Cup preview and what's made the series so good and so bad at the same time. Why have the Bruins sustained a dynasty and the Hawks haven't? Here's a hint: Stan Bowman sucks. Then we get into possibly our best VM ever and an A+ round of beefs!!! #AGNB 

Jun 10, 2019
Draftin' a Fool
Baseball heavy episode.  The Chicago Crew breaks down the new gambling laws in Illinois, the 2019 MLB Draft, and Lucas Giolito becoming one of the premier pitchers in all of baseball on one of the *spoiler* hottest teams in baseball, the Chicago White Sox.  Do they have a chance to make the playoffs?  Will they be buyers or sellers at the deadline?  Does Alex Colome fit their long term plans or will he be donning the Blue and Red on the North Side before the deadline? The Cubs just got swept by St. Louis but, as Carl says, "whatever".  Their bullpen is clearly the weak link and Eddie, Carl and Chief are waiting on pins and needles for Theo to start making moves to fortify it. The show wraps up with beefs and voicemails, and also the Crew ripping on Aaron Rodgers for chugging beer like a Sally.  All gas, no brakes!!!

Happy Memorial Day + Bears 100 + Max Strus

Happy Memorial Day from Barstool Chicago. This week has an awesome interview with DePaul legend and Chicago area classic Max Strss as he prepares for the NBA draft as a regular White Guy (his words). We get there after opening with a small grab bag about Memorial Day followed by some hard hitting baseball talk with White Sox Dave. He explains the 2019 Chicago White Sox in a way that should help you cope with the roller coaster ride they've put fans on since day one. After that, Carl rationalizes his way through the Cubs bullpen struggles and why he's baffled with the lack of a real closer. All around though it's very-okay because the Cubs are still in first place so Carl is happy. Ed - on the other hand - is very unhappy with the Bears releasing a Top 100 list and rightfully so. Why why why. Ed drops a classic rant before we introduce Max Strus to the world. One of Dave's games follows where we cut sit start the White Sox. Next week we do broadcasters. No beefs. No awards. No hockey (Sorry Chief). No brakes. All gas!

Bran The Broken

Episode 102 opens with GoT bar bag reactions followed by a new grabbag segment featuring apartment hunting and bachelor parties as the opening topics. Following that, Carl gets real excited about Kyle Hendricks personally addressing his theory about Kyle's historical slow starts on ESPN. You would too. General Cubs talk follows with an emphasis on the Jake Arrieta / Yu Darvish storyline. Opposite that, WSD talks everyone into the White Sox being a playoff contender. Like actual, real playoffs. Carl & Eddie then briefly recap a trip to NYC's new HQ before going deep on what the Bulls can do at 7 while Chief considers a former UCLA standout against Eddie's wishes. Chief then makes a bold request - tapping into Eddie's black magic for the #3 pick in the NHL draft. After that WSD debuts the first ever Cut, Start, Statue segment that does better than expected if we're being honest. Naturally beefs follow but no voicemails. What the fuck? 224-544-9194. Thank you Miller Lite, Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Roman, Hello Fresh and SeatGeek. We love you!!!!

In and around that we talk GoT endings, Bulls lottery draft, Cubs momentum and Tim Anderson. We got a voicemail from a classic RLR guy and a surprise interview at the end with special guest Chicago Dogs owner Shawn Hunter. It's an All Gas No Brakes kind of week, always!

Arya Stark vs. Derrick Rose + NFL Draft Grades

Good morning afternoon and evening Chicago Sports Fans - we start this week's Sports podcast with an in depth look at the Battle of Winterfell because sometimes Sports need to take a back seat to the biggest television event in recorded human history. So we start there and obviously use it to talk about Chicago Sports because at the end of the day we're still Chicago sports degenerates. Eddie follows with remarkably accurate and insightful look at the new Chicago Bears draft picks and then he takes it one step further with creepy intel on the undrafted free agent signings that are coming in. Spoiler Alert it's all good stuff from the Bears no surprise. Opposite that Chief is borderline distressed with Stan Bowman's lies and he's here to take this man down or die trying. Or at the very least maybe just be honest one time Stan? Carl and Dave follow with some OG Red Line Radio baseball talk followed by very limited grabbag and a voicemail of our choosing. Thanks to SeatGeek, Roman, Urbal Activ and Miller Lite for making this week happen. All Gas No Brakes!

Tyrion Lannister + NFL Mock Draft + Captain America + Bat Flips

The boys are here this week to go very deep on a number of topics per usual starting with a thorough breakdown of Game of Thrones. WSD and Chief are hot about something and here's a hint -  she too is extremely hot. Ed follows with his favorite moments before going into a brief recap of his travels across the state of Illinois last week to document the hidden gems at our state universities. No lunch ladies were hurt during his recording btw. After that, we go into some NFL draft talk with the sad understanding the Bears don't pick til Saturday. Mixed in is some great hockey chatter about the World's and why Patrick Kane is Captain America at some convenient timing. After that Carl and Dave go back and forth on baseball in Chicago because it's that time of the year. Grabbag, beefs and 1 voicemail follow. Thanks to Miller Lite for making it happen. All Gas NO Brakes!!!

Tiger Woods + Jon Snow + ASU Head Coach Tracy Smith

The Red Line boys are delighted to be back this week after the best Sunday in the history of recorded history. And rightfully so there's plenty to talk about: Tiger, Game of Thrones, White Sox Dave doing the Roman ad read... it's a loaded show. Elsewhere, Chief/Eddie/WSD tease their day with Pat Fitzgerald and Northwestern Football last week while rehashing their first taste of organized football drills in about 15 years. After that Carl and Dave bring on very good friend of the program and national baseball icon, Tracy Smith, head coach of the Arizona State Sun Devil Baseball Team. He rips on White Sox Dave while sharing some pretty cool stories. The interview ends with him calling out WSD to a homerun derby explicitly saying "I will crush you." Elsewhere Chief talks Carl and Dave out of going Russian with the #3 overall pick in the NHL draft but it's a hard sell. Now that it's baseball season they really want to play dirty. There's one voicemail, 3 beefs and your standard slate of good natured ad reads. Thanks to Miller Lite, SeatGeek, Roman, PolicyGenius and Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for making tonight's episode happen!!! AG...

Fergie Jenkins + White Sox & Cubs Come Home

Good morning afternoon and evening sports fans. It's episode 96 in the Red Line Radio catalogue and it's baseball heavy featuring our first Cooperstown resident, Fergie Jenkins. The Hall of Famer joins us to talk about 50 year anniversary of the famous collapse of the 1969 Cubs as well as how Joe Maddon would put a lineup together to beat him. In and around the conversation the guys go deep on baseball with White Sox and Cubs home openers in the rear view mirror. WSD is particularly pumped for the notable development of Yoan Moncada and how crazy fans got for the home opener. On the other side of town Carl only wants to talk about the lineup. Don't ask him about the pitching staff. Lineup conversations only. Outside of that Chief gives a great primer on how to digest playoff hockey, what makes it so great and how the Hawks should attack free agency if they don't want to lie to everyone AGAIN. There's no beefs (sorry) but a light grabbag, a voicemail and some general lively banter around baseball that takes RLR back to its roots. Thank you to our great tasting, less filling partner Miller Lite for making the show happen along with SeatGeek, SimpliSafe, Postmates and Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. All Gas No Brakes!

Dee Brown + MLB Opening Day

Good morning good afternoon and good evening sports fans. This is a big show for a lot of reasons. The boys are joined by college basketball legend Dee Brown to talk all things March Madness and he doesn't disappoint. Dee relives the best game ever while going in depth on what made the 2005 Illini basketball team one of the greatest teams ever. In and and around that interview the boys go into the Sweet 16 weekend, the end of the Hawks season, Jordan Howard trade emotions, opening day reactions and the first deep dive into baseball of the year. It's a tight show so no voicemails and limited grabbag but we find time for a beef because of course we do. Thanks to Miller Lite, Roman, Seat Geek, Casper Mattresses and Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for making this show happen. All Gas No Brakes! I-L-L

Carlos Rodon + March Sadness

The boys are finally recovered from the long stretch of St. Paddys and March Madness just in time for MLB Opening Day. Things begin with March Madness recap before going into a healthy conversation with White Sox #1 starting pitcher Carlos Rodon. He touches on everything from the honey mustard chicken to hunting deer to pumping fastballs by the Cleveland Indians. WSD follows with his expectations for the season while Carl gets extremely disappointed with Ian Happ but finds happiness with Jon Lester as his leader. Chief follows with some grim news about the Hawks: the season appears to be over but maybe not. We do not have voicemails or grabbags this week but there are a few beefs. Thanks to Miller Lite, LinkedIn, Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, Hello Fresh, SeatGeek and Dollar Shave Club for making this a possibility!!! 

Mar 26, 2019

In and around that amazing interview, the boys recap St. Paddy's, prep for a March Madness party in Wrigley, break down the Hawks late season resurgence and new Bears roster moves while undergoing the stark realization that Chicago is officially a Destination City for all professional athletes outside the NBA. After that Carl puts up some counter-logic on why the Cubs had a big offseason and they need to start playing baseball pronto. Afterwards there's a brief grabbag, voicemails, beefs and big shoulders. Special thanks to title sponsor Miller Lite as well as our Best Friend Rick Hahn for making this week a special one. ALL GAS. NO BRAKES!!!

LIVE From Spring Training + Two Year Anniversary + Carson Fulmer

The boys are back for the two year anniversary special episode. It's fitting Dave & Carl bring it to you life from Spring Training and share the bulk of the show like the OG Red Line Radio days when it was a baseball only podcast. Carl and Dave relive some notable moments over their first two years before an interview with Carson Fulmer, Seby Zavala and Ryan Burr of the White Sox. Mike Kopech named Seby as a guy to keep an eye on and now we say the same thing but for different reasons. He may have a body or two in his freezer. Elsewhere, Eddie and Chief join the show remote from Chicago in the first every reverse podcast phone call. You'll have to hear it to believe it. Rick Hahn is coming next week to answer to White Sox Dave. We're trying to get that one set up in an octagon. No voicemails. No beefs. No grabbag or segments. For the first time in almost a year the RLR boys keep it under an hour.

Food Week With Top Chef Joe Flamm

The Red Line crew is back for Episode 92 and with them comes Top Chef champion/Chicago native Joe Flamm. Certainly the most unique interview the boys have had so far, arguably the most interesting. We get remarkable authority on some longstanding Beefs, not to mention a laundry list of phenomenal stories that one can only expect from a true South Side Man turned international cooking sensation. Joe was kind enough to bring us to his MICHELIN RATED restaurant, Spiaggia. In and around that, we bury the Blackhawks, convince ourselves that the Bulls are much better than what we saw in January and of course some Spring Training extended talk. White Sox Dave is ready to move on from an abyssmal offseason while Carl recaps his favorite nuggets of the last week in Arizona. Naturally a grabbag and some very good beefs follow including HEAVY St. Patrick's Day talk.

Election Day + NHL Trade Deadline + Mousing Around MLB

It's Election Day in Chicago and the boys are certainly fired up as the show starts with some chatter recapping the weekend and the first installment of Chicago Mayoral Week on Eddies world famous show, Chicago Dog Walk. Opener includes: Chief's new dog (HI GEORGE), watch party recaps (we had 2 this weekend) and an extended review of our Top 10 Moments from interviewing 6 mayor candidates. Spoiler Alert: Willie Wilson steals the show as expected. After that, Chief pulls the curtain back on the NHL trade deadline and what it means for the Hawks moving forward. Naturally, the biggest pick up for the Hawks is a name you know all too well. After that, Carl goes into his first of many Cubs breakdowns 10 days into Spring Training and of course his Kris Bryant boner is harder than ever. WSD follows with a small serving of Scoop City after going into some really upsetting details about the Machado signing. Carl circles back with a light grabbag before handing out beefs and taking the single meanest voicemail in the history of voicemails. Special thank you to MILLER LITE, Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Roman, LinkedIn and Policy Genius! #AGNB

Eddie Went To Mexico + All Gas No Brakes

The Red Line Radio crew is back in action to celebrate President's Day with unprecedented passion. Eddie kicks things off with a brief recap of his time in Mexico and of course it gets a little weird. Something about a bell hop and a wheelchair and yeah. Let's just say we're glad Eddie is home safe. After that Chief gives a real deep dive into why this is the biggest week for the Hawks all year. It's make or break time and that's putting it lightly. On the best end of things we could have a Panarin trade. At worse we dump Duncan Keith for a bucket of pucks. Like we said it's a big week. After that, WSD and Carl trade Spring Training headlines and what they mean to their respective clubs. Dave is getting antsy about Machado while Carl miraculously is holding out a sliver of hope Theo does more Theo things. Obviously we need baseball to start immediately before they explode. After that we got a couple beefs, some voicemails, a Robbie Gould rumor and some more beefs. It's an All Gas No Brakes President's Day and we thank you for tuning in. Sponsors: Miller Lite, Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Postmates, Simplisafe and SeatGeek!

White Sox Ace Michael Kopech + HAWKS ARE BACK

Good morning good afternoon and good evening ladies. And sports fans. But also ladies. It's Epsiode 89 aka the Mike Ditka Episode aka the HAWKS ARE BACK. Chief is so jacked up we had to give him some podcast sponsored Urbal Activ CBD to calm his nerves. He's that pumped up for his Hawks and rightfully so. Winners of 6 straight and on their way to playoff glory, right? Chief's not sure but we speculate the shit out of it and how the last couple week have changed the trajectory of the organization. Elsewhere, Michael Kopech from YOUR CHICAGO WHITE SOX (Gene Honda voice) join us for an awesome interview where he and WSD basically become best friends. And elsewhere Rick Hahn is v, v jealous. In addition to that wonderful must-listen interview, we've got our deepest bulls talk of the season as we actually break down the Otto Porter trade. Like actually and sincerely break it down. After that we enjoy a nice 6-point grabbag on all things from international travel with Eddie to Valentine's Day with White Sox Dave. This week we close with ad reads and a plea that you grab some ice cold responsible Miller Lites assuming your 21+. All Gas!

The Super Bowl Sucked + Patrick Mannelly

GMGAGE Chicago Sports Fans the Red Line Radio gang is back this week to puke all over this horrendous Super Bowl, a game that undoubtedly could have belonged toyour 2018-19 Chicago Bears. Optimism is high that Nagy has the boys on track to get there. Patrick Mannelly joins the show to talk about offensive line play, long snapping in general and help us understand how he would have handled the Cody Parkey ordeal. It's a phenomenal interview and one of our favorites since starting the show over two years ago. Elsewhere, the Blackhawks are back for the 6th time this season, apparently, after winning 4 straight. But there's strong leaks that Duncan Keith could get traded and Chief's not sure what to make of it. After that Carl & Dave briefly recap the #BreakingNews that there are no mystery teams in on Bryce Harper. It's obvious that baseball season needs to start immediately because February Blows. We got voicemails, some beefs and a lot of all gas no brakes! Sponsor links:

Super Bowl Week... From Chicago

BROUGHT TO YOU BY MILLER LITE - The gangs back for a brutal Super Bowl week in Chicago as temperatures fall into the minus 30's. Fuck this, right? Wrong. The Pro Bowl was scorching hot and Eddie is so excited to rehash his enjoyment. After that the boys chop up some Bears news and go heavy in the trenches with offensive line stuff. It's a big segment for our big listeners. Then we go to Super Bowl but really focus on the fan experience and what makes a good Super Bowl with our team out of it. Carl tells a story about winning a charity even beer pong tournament but then being disappointed to find out that part of the winning package was autorgraphed baseballs by Kris Bryant and Rizzo. He's not disppointed in getting the balls. Just disappointed that their actual signatures suck. After that, WSD goes heavy into his experiences this past weekend at Sox Fest including the time he became Adam Engel's professional hitting coach and no that's not a joke Dave has a new job. Kinda. That's followed with not so depressing Blackhawks talk because we're making a collective effort to give Chief a list of shit that he can do to occupy his free time like gardening and maybe learning Spanish as a 3rd language. Don't ask about his second btw. We also have an abbreviated grabbag and some weird beefs to give out. Notably, we would also like to apologize for 10 minutes of Ad Reads to start the show. Apparently people want a piece of Tony & Frankie's action. We're not going corporate though. That's our eternal promise! Thank you to sponsors Miller Lite, Roman, LinkedIn, UrBal Activ and Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (Napleton, Second To None Since 1931).

Chicago Bears Captain Kyle Long

The Red Line boys are back after going through another weekend closer to normal life. The Conference Championships on Sunday were down right amazing and we're here to debate who lost the worst: Bears, Saints or Chiefs. We then follow it up with an outstanding interview with Bears' Captain, Kyle Long to give his first interview since the Bears lost. Spoiler Alert: he's moving on from the loss with a lot of anticipation towards starting the 2019 campaign. Naturally we left in shock and awe as we always do when talking to Chicago Bear greats. Kyle Long is no exception and NBD he invites us over for a pool party. After that, Carl goes through the Cubs convention festivities this weekend including a story about how he accidentally got hammered at Don Shula's steakhouse in the Sheraton Hotel. After that, Dave updates the crew on Manny Machado, virtually saying he is coming to the White Sox without the WSD scoop city stamp of approval. Chief follows to announce that the Hawks are officially dead but not really because there's a non-zero chance, whatever the fuck that means. There's some beefs, voicemails, and a very light grabbag to close out the show. We're still licking our wounds as we look to baseball season. Oh PS the Bulls suck! 


Jan 22, 2019
Winter Is Here

The boys are still picking up the pieces from the Bears Eagles game. Fortunately, Nagy and Pace had a joint press conference Monday that Eddie breaks down in full detail. There are some major observations regarding Cody Parkey's future, Chuck Pagano, long-term planning and what everything means for the 2019 Bears. Spoiler Alert: Eddie thinks 2019 is going to be a special season. From there, White Sox Dave goes full MLB Insider on the Manny Machado saga, even calling Barstool Hubbs in the mothership NYC office to get the Yankees' side of MLB Free Agency. It should be no surprise that Hubbs is as frustrated as all of us. Carl then gives his fastest 5 minutes on the Chicago Cubs including a weird obsession with new Cubs Front Office "strategist" Craig Breslow aka the smartest man in baseball. Chief follows with some unfortunate realities: the Hawks are sellers and everyone is available not wearing 88 or 19. In a strange twist, the guys follow that up with some extended Bulls talk after Carl took the weekend to watch back-to-back losses against the Warriors and Jazz. Things are ugly on Madison right now but Barstool Chicago is here to get through it all. Also included, Grab Bag and Beefs because it's Red Line Radio don't forget to have a couple beefs!

Bears Lose + Electric Chair Review + AJ Pierzynski

The Barstool Chicago boys are absolutely devastated after a soul crushing defeat this weekend. No one saw it coming and there's loads of reaction packed into this week's episode. It's hard to pin blame on one player, so they say, but that doesn't stop us from going through each and every person who should be accountable for that devastating loss. At the same time, the boys do every they can to keep it together and stay big picture. This was the best season for Bears fans arguably in 12 years, arguably since 1985 because of how much fun we had along the way. After that, Carl and Dave do some baseball talk as they get ready for their seasons. Dave brings on good friend of the program AJ Pierzynski who basically injects a shot of life into everyone in the room. AJ is the fucking man as evidence by his 26 minutes with the boys this week. After that they do some mild grabbag, obviously voicemails, beefs, big shoulders before closing with the world debut on Red Line Radio of Imma Buy You A Beef. It's a big week even if it sucks. We're happy to be here with you, holding your proverbial hair as you puke your guts out over this defeat. Stay strong Chicago. We got this!

Kings Of The North

The Red Line Radio crew is All Gas No Brakes kind fired up over the Bears winning the NFC North Divsion. #12 looked like an absolute bitch in the process and the guys couldn't be more thrilled. Eddie is finally convinced and willing to admit this is a Super Bowl Bears team. The stars have aligned, and we call that the Red Line Radio difference. Elsewhere, the group celebrates Nagy's brilliance and offers him several beefs. Can the Bears close 12-4? Chief and Carl think so while Eddie has some interesting thoughts on the San Francisco game. WhiteSoxDave drops some knowledge bombs on the hot stove while Carl blames the Cubs bumps for a slow winter. Chief is - you guessed it - not happy with the Blackhawks leadership. There's a grabbag, a lot of beefs and big shoulders, 3 solid voicemails and a fuck load of happiness. We are champions. We are kings. We are coming for the Lombardi. ALL GAS NO BRAKES!

Jewel Osco Live Show With Big Cat

The Red Line crew pulls off the improbable upset of selling out a bar at a Jewel Osco in honor of the single most premium Spirit brand on the planet, New Amsterdam Vodka. This is the full audio from the night's event, which we're turning over to you as a random bonus episode that was recorded, edited and produced from the bottom of our collective hearts. There's nothing related to Barstool Chicago that doesn't get covered in the live show including how Big Cat started the site, why Eddie really loves a Jewel-Osco, how long it would take to eat an aisle of cereal and the list goes on. Thanks to the filthy animals who showed up last Thursday, and thanks to those who are willing to retroactively consume this content. We love you, we love making this stuff and we hope you can visit us at our next live show on TBD at TBD. Most importantly, ALL GAS NO BRAKES!

Peanut Tillman + Shams Charania

***Live Show w/ Big Cat this Thursday 12/6 7pm @ the Jewel Osco on Clark & Division in Old Town*** The Red Line crew is back in action after the Bears dropped a heart breaker to the G Men. Eddie is understandably disappointed while Carl and Chief actively try to find silver linings for a deep Super Bowl Run. In other news, White Sox Dave declares War on KFC after a big, BIG weekend at the Big Ten Championships. The boys also nab Shams Charania to cover his breaking story from Monday that the Bulls fired Fred Hoiberg. Elsewhere, Chief isn't happy with Stan Bowman for a lot of reasons and the recent media tour isn't doing that ANY favors. Dave and Carl turn on the stove for a hot minute to talk some baseball before an extremely limited grab bag and abbreviated award session. Most importantly, this show is brought to you by Miller Lite! Please drink responsibly, but also please only drink Miller Lite from now on.

Eddie Olcyzk Part 1 + Bears Roll + Behind The Scenes Of Dente Pizza Reviews

The Red Line crew is proud to present it's first Beefsgiving, a new holiday recognizing a beef sandwich meal before recording your Thanksgiving podcast in Chicago. Or something like that. Anyways we got some amazing behind the scenes stories from Eddie and WSD about their 4-hour beef/pizza/hot dog excursion this past Friday night in Chicago. Spoiler Alert: Eddie hates spoilers and Dave was full of them Friday. It's an argument/rant from Eddie for the ages. Next up is first place Bears talk about and why this team is ready to bury our insecurities as Bears fans once and for all. Cody Parkey obviously gets a few beefs. Carl then does some brain pretzeling on why the Cubs could land Harper, but likely sacrificing something major in the process that would leave Cubs fans shook. Next, Chief and WSD sit down with EDDIE OLCZYK, a certified living legend, to recap the state of the Blackhawks in Part 1 of a lengthy 2 part series with Edzo. It's an amazing interview loaded with the stuff we love to bring you: laughs, insight, familiarity. Per usual the boys close it down with a grab bag, some segments, a few beefs and of course voicemails!!!

Bears Destroy Lions + New Coach, Same Hawks + Veteran's Day Baseball With Guest Ryan Spaeder

The Red Line crew is absolutely FIRED UP about the Bears dominating performance against the Lions. Mitch looked awesome, Nagy is settling in, receivers are wide open, Khalil Mack murdered several people in a single play, and on and on and on it goes. The Bears are ROLLING and Red Line Radio is along for the ride. In the process Eddie explains why no matter how bad Cody Parkey kicks, he's not going anywhere anytime soon. Chief gives a phenomenal update on Jeremy Colliton's debut on the Hawks and where his challenges will be over the remainder of his presumably brief time with the Hawks. WSD gives a behind the scenes look at Bryce Harper while Carl blows some wind on Buster Olney's clickbait report on the Cubs trading Kris Bryant. Elsewhere, the boys make some huge announcements regarding Italian Beef sponsors, the Winter Meetings, the Winter Classic and then Carl drops an extended grabbag on some Chicago delicacies. After that the crew is joined by active Marine and renowned baseball statistician Ryan Spaeder (must follow @theaceofspaeder) to talk AMAZING baseball statistics and old school WW2 baseball guys. Amazing interview with a big friend of the program. Overall 77 is a loaded show that ends with segments, awards and as usual, voicemails. Thank you to Scotty and Ray from Napleton River Oaks Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for making Episode 77 happen!!!

Remembering Joel Quenneville With 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Brent Sopel

Not much else to say here. November 6, 2018 will go down in Blackhawks history for all the wrong reasons. Brent Sopel joins Chief and Carl to talk about what made playing for Q so different, why he was the best, always will be the best and got nothing but a good old fashioned fuck job on his way out of town. But like all good rememberances, we're not here to grieve. We're hear to celebrate. Sopes makes it so damn clear why Stan Bowman is a dead man walking, figuratively. Obviously!

Bears Win + Hawks Can't Win + Machado To Chicago?

Episode 76 is as loaded as your Uncle at an Old Country Buffet baked potato bar. Spoiler Alert: very loaded. The Red Line crew spent some time in Evanston this past weekend watching Notre Dame continue its march to a perfect season against the Northwestern Wildcats and who would have guessed it Northwestern lost. Dave and Chief recount the game and tailgating at Northwestern. "Not Bad," says Chief, disappointedly. Elsewhere, Eddie is back from his week at the spa to explain why the Bears 41-9 victory was so damn sweet. Notably, Eddie got a good look despite a big blowout, and he thinks the boys are really starting to come together. In other words, the breakdowns are big and beefy, just how we like it. After that, Dave and Carl go back and forth in a hot debate about whether Machado or Harper fit into the Sox plans and what it would take to sign either. There's a noticeable difference the boys uncover later in the conversation. Chief then gives a passionate look at why the Hawks suck, why some heads need to roll and he even includes a great hypothesis included with a Thanksgiving Timeline. Elsewhere the Bulls suck big but Carl's convinced that clearly and convincingly means #1 overall pick. Finally, the boys take a lap around the block with a sealed Grab Bag from Carl that goes about 20 minutes longer than necessary but really no one gives a fuck because we'll see you next week. Segments: Beefs and Big Shoulders!!!! 

Nov 06, 2018
Scottie Puppen + Bears Win

The Red Line Boyz are back in action after watching the Bears dismantle the New York Jets. Eddie got laid up in the hospital after some bad car wash beef but is still able to come off IR for solid Bears talk as always. Carl's new dog, Scottie Puppen, is introduced (not really) as the official mascot of Red Line Radio, the first true mascot in Barstool Sports history, allegedly.

Later, Chief and Dave go inside and out on Northwestern/ND this weekend with some piping hot takes and lots of arguing. Spoiler Alert: White Sox Dave loses the argument, but all signs point to a major Northwestern upset. So that's nice. Chief proceeds to solve the Blackhawks while Carl tells his Stan Bowman story for the 10th time in Red Line Radio recorded history. WSD then covers Chicago offseason baseball moves for what seems like an eternity, but only because there's so much juicy info. It's the first of many deep hot stove convos between WSD and Carl. 

Elsewhere, we have lots of beef sandwiches, segments (not really), voicemails, excitement and most importantly FIRST PLACE CHICAGO BEARS! 

Oct 30, 2018
Brian Urlacher

The biggest episode in the history of Red Line Radio featuring the boys' collective childhood hero, Brian Urlacher. #54 joins the boys to talk retired life, getting juked by Tom Brady, winning without a quarterback and everything else the Red Line guys could throw at him. As always, Urlacher does not disappoint. Around the interview, the boys give their Bears/Patriots reactions lead by Eddie's staunch belief that the Bears are trending up. Also, Chief explains why the Hawks are back but far behind the Elite teams as evidenced by the Lightning beatdown. Carl and Dave chat up the World Series, Eddie explains why Zach Levine looks like the real deal (note: before Lavine went off in Dallas btw) and then Carl drops a new cornucopia of questions on the boys. They close with segments Buy Him A Beef and Big Shoulders per usual. Thank you sponsors: Tropical Bros, The Athletic and Mack Wheldon! PROMO CODES = REDLINE

Big Cat + Bears Disgust

Big Cat joins the Red Line boyz to breakdown the most disappointing loss Chicago Bears fans have suffered since week 1 of this year. Not a long time, but still remarkably soul crushing. We have first place expectations, and we will honor those expectations regardless of their validity. Eddie and Big Cat assign blame, talk through their issues and help us move on to New England because God knows the Bears need everyone's help. Big Cat also helps the boys get through some Bulls expectations for the year, and we can all agree a successful year includes a lottery pick, post play development and some flashes from Zach Lavine. In other words, it's very very bad. But not all teams in the UC are destined for misery. The Hawks look PHENOMENAL and Chief is going to explain why that does not apply to Brandon Saad and why he will not be buying him a beef. Carl and Dave round out playoff observations on Chris Sale sucking and the new Cubs hitting coach. Other segments include Carls Cornucopia (a grab bag of Carl questions for the guys), Big Shoulders, Buy him a Beef? and other stuff. Thank you TROPICAL BROS and THE ATHLETIC  for making this episode happen!!! (PROMO = REDLINE).

Thomas Jones + Bears Bye Week + Hawks Are Back + Cubs Are Not

The boys are back after a well deserved bye week and holy shit does Carl need it coming off the Cubs collapse. Before he explodes, the boys prepare you for your 1st Place Chicago Bears week 6 game against the overwhelmingly mediocre Miami Dolphins. Eddie has PTSD from the last time they came to town but is still confident this is a Bears beatdown and for good reason. White Sox Dave tries to jynx the season unintentionally but not really because he is a troll. And after done trolling the Bears, he turns his attention to Carl who finds a solid half hour of group therapy on this week's show to work through his Cubs related issues. Disclaimer: he does not mean any of the bad things he says about anyone this week. SPOILER ALERT LOTS OF BAD THINGS. White Sox Dave then plays a game of River Boat Gambler with Rick Hahn's checkbook as he pontificates the big swinging dick's moves this offseason. Chief explains why the Hawks are back including a remarkable profile on THE CAPTAIN. Voicemails, Gas Money Bob, Dope Ropes and then finally Super Bowl running back and Chicago Bear standout Thomas Jones joins the crew. NBD just the 25th all time rusher with 71 career rushing touchdowns called in while he was getting a goddamn lift in. Allow yourself to get the feels because they are there. TJ brings them, including a thorough explanation of why Green Bay sucks dong, the proverbial kind. Loaded show for a loaded audience. Bears are going to the Super Bowl ALL GAS NO BRAKES!!!

Six Touchdown Passes. Six.
The Redline Radio boys are STRUGGLING after Carl's wedding weekend. It's an All Gas No Brakes Podcast, but they are running on fumes. RLR pulls back the curtain and unveils a new segment called "White Sox Daze" to let the listeners in on all the eyeroll inducing instances that occur when you're working with White Sox Dave.  The ONLY thing giving them life this week was that Monster of the Midway Defense and Mitch Trubisky showing signs of life. Eddie is bringing the noise, the energy, and the analysis of the Bears' blow out of the Tampa Bay Bucs. With the offense now showing real signs of life heading into the bye week and the team in first place, the guys reset their expectations for the rest of the year and circle a few dates on the schedule including games with the Patriots and the Rams.  Carl breaks down what went wrong with the Cubs down the stretch and the pickle they're in now with the Brewers in Game 163 and looks ahead to a potential Wild Card showdown and NLDS matchup with Milwaukee.  Eddie introduces a new segment "would you buy him a beef" where the guys discuss Jimmy Butler and where his reputation is within the City of Chicago. "Buy A Beef" leads to Chief going on a rant about Brandon Saad and his lack of passion so far in his second stint with the Blackhawks. The RLR boys close the show with another editon of 'Big Shoulders of the Week" to determine who had the brightest moments in Chicago sports.  ALL GAS NO BRAKES!!!

ESPN 1000's Silvy + 1st Place Bears

The Bears are alone in first place and the boys are here to rub the world's best defense in your face. Never mind the quarterback problems, this is Chicago Bears football of course the quarterback is the only question mark. Fortunately Eddie is here to be your spiritual guide as you manage your Mitch Trubisky expectations. On the north side of town, the Cubs are still in first place. Silvy from ESPN 1000 joins the boys to talk October expectations while Carl predicts a 16-inch softball style lineup for the October Cubs. Chief gets his first full Hawks monologue, and it's loaded with names no one else can pronounce or spell. But's he's all fuckin jacked up with optimism and that's GOOD NEWS for Red Line Radio. We close with a new yet monstrously important segment: Big Shoulders Of The Week, an award voted on by the listeners based on 4 submissions from Carl, Dave, Eddie and Chief and one listener submission Tuesday after the show drops. This week it's Hendricks, Hawk, McManus and Lauri in that order. Listen in and follow along on Twitter and of course Barstool Sports dot com to get a piece of the action! #AllGasNoBrakes

Red Line Radio Episode 3 - All Gas No Brakes: Bears 15-1?

The Red Line boyz have a little extra bounce in their step this week after watching the Bears DISMANTLE Russell Wilson and the once great Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. The Bears defense is back to its rightful Bad Boy status while Mitchy Dual Threat Trubisky proves all the Patrick Mahaolmes Enthusiasts that a Win is a Win is A Win. Eddie and Chief take you through all the Bears highlights before letting Carl and Dave drag their baseball ballz all over the Cubs playoff talk. Fortunately it's never too early to start talking White Sox B-side Free Agency so Dave covers that too. Chief glazes the episode with some in-person observations from the Hawks first official scrimmage, which is very nice. And of course, voicemails 224-544-9194!!! #AllGasNoBrakes

Red Line Radio Episode 2: Was It Over When The Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor?

The boyz are here to face the music in the wake of getting tea bagged by Aaron Rodgers on national television. There's no time for crying though because Chicago is in the middle of a Super Bowl run (last time the Bears went 15-1? 1985) and soon to be a deep October run. Or something like that. White Sox Dave has PTSD following the Michael Kopech Tommy John surgery announcement, which is better than how Eddie is faring after Coach Nagy's disappearance in Sunday night's second half. Chief does his best to find a silver lining while Carl repeatedly reminds everyone at all times that the sun will rise tomorrow. Segments include: Red Line Radio official Matt Nagy press conference, White Sox Dave State of the Union, Cubs Counseling with Carl and of course VOICEMAILS 224-544-9194!

Eddie from the OG Barstool Chicago crew joins to talk Urlacher legacy and early observations from his expert opinion. Take a bath in his velvet voice while your here. Dave unloads major Eloy demands before honoring the heroic and historic Peoria, IL native Jim Thome. Carl tries to tarnish his legacy with alleged speculation of allegations. Cubs talk predominantly revolves around why Hendricks is getting touched up early and why Cole Hamels might be a bigger pick-up than you think. Some new segments include This Week In Nice Things We Do Not Deserveand Blowin Wind. We're working on more, we promise. Also, Carl loses his goddamn mind on Rick Morrisey for a solid 7 minutes starting around 1:13. Then of course, as always, for now and forever so god help our souls, the boys close it down with voicemails.
