George Ford, the Scorsese of Fire, joins the show to talk about the business and artistic aspects of filming pleasant fire place scenes for Netflix (0:28:30). Stephen Colbert's alleged comedy show has somehow gotten so unfunny that even elderly columnists for the Boston Globe are rightfully ridiculing him. Gary Tanguay is the new holiday fill-in hots for WEEI. Intern Justin finally cracks a smile on the wrap-up show... and it's some creepy shit. Jared Carrabis joins the show for a little update, and someone is jealous of Ryan Whitney. One more day in SC left.

Birch Fire
Today Kirk and Steve mix it up with a little birch fire on the Netflix. Brandi Love, having canoodled with other Barstool Sports shows and unfollowed Kirk on Twitter, is no longer the MILF-in-Chief of the Kirk Minihane Show, so Kirk is looking for new porn star submissions. Get cracking, Minifans. Tom Cruise lampoons production employees working on the latest Mission Impossible movie for failing to adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines. The KMS fill-in producer comes up with an incredible idea for the secret project (0:33:15). Greg Hill, the guy who saved WEEI's ratings from Mut & Callahan, gets credit for a hard-nosed interview with Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh.

Roach Motel
Kirk and Steve are together for special project investigative work somewhere in South Carolina, but they've still got time to record an episode of the Kirk Minihane Show in front of a nice warm fire.

Prince Andrew's Epstein alibi has fallen apart, the Boston Globe slobbers over the greatest female football kicker ever to live, and Steve defends the Wall Street Journal's controversial op-ed about Joe Biden's second wife.

Mystery Guest
The first ever mystery guest of the Kirk Minihane Show joins us tonight in studio. We don't want to hype this too much, so we'll give you a few hints: He always dreamed of being on a major podcast, he should probably learn Albanian, and he's a world class fencer.

Quantum Rocket
Jared "The Rocket" Carrabis joins Kirk Minihane in studio to confront Quantum Week host and KMS fill-in producer Matthew Carano. On yesterday's show, Carano said Carrabis has "no talent" and now we'll see whether he sticks to that claim or backs down. Carano also attempts to explain why it took him a full five hours to post yesterday's show, thus enraging all Minifans and providing ammo to his legions of enemies. Plus, Kirk let's Carrabis react to Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy's scathing review of his performance during the company-wide Cyber Monday merch push.

Nov 20, 2020
Pardon the Interruption
In a late night taping session, Kirk and Steve offer some teases about the TOP SECRET project they've been working on and reflect on the potential future of The Robinson Report. Plucky underdog Linda Pizutti somehow secures an even larger role running the Boston Globe. The Cuomo family continues to be an absolute American disgrace, a story that blends nepotism, political corruption, and media malpractice.

Howie Winter, Austere Lover of Art, Dead at 91
Notorious Boston crime boss and friend of James J. "Whitey" Bulger Howie Winter died of a heart attack last week at the age of 91. The underworld figure was responsible for the rise of the murderous Whitey Bulger and an unknown number of murders himself. But that didn't stop a pair of Globe writers, Shelley Murphy and Kevin Cullen, from eulogizing the murderer, downplaying his atrocities, and attempting to turn him into a folk hero. In today's show, Kirk offers a case study in what it takes to work for the Boston Globe.
Nov 17, 2020
Now that he has single handedly saved the Florence VFW, Kirk needs a new project: Bringing peace to the Middle East. What better way to do that than by bringing the entire Kirk Minihane Show and mob of Minifans to Badr, Saudi Arabia. Clear your calendars, it's happening next year. CNN hypes an obvious lie about COVID-19 hospitalizations in South Dakota (0:26:30). Jeff Toobin is still a CNN employee (0:51:00).

In a Mood
Barack Obama will release his presidential memoirs (two volumes) next week and the nauseating reviews are already rolling in. "Discover Podcasts" has released its 2020 award winners for best podcasts in several, perhaps even too many, categories. Only one Barstool podcast made the cut, so Kirk was excited to review the shows that this industry blog considers the best. The Barstool sales team has once again admonished Kirk for his handling of the ad reads, but he's taking it really well.

88 Miles
It's night two at the VFW hall in Florence and we find ourselves at war. Once again, Kirk Minihane's enemies have conspired against the Kirk Minihane Show in a coordinated effort to shutdown and silence and charity show. Hours before we went to tape, five agents of the state descended upon VFW Post 8006 to carry out the capricious and nonsensical dictates of the Northampton Health Board. We prevailed over the forces of tyranny. In other triumphs, Steve from Providence successfully walked 88 miles from Providence, RI all the way to Florence. His thighs look like raw ground beef, but he has become legend. Sadly, Intern Justin failed to properly document the adventure as he instead decided to sleep for 17 hours. (There's still time to donate to Steve's GoFundMe, proceeds of which will go either to Steve's child support or the VFW hall:

Veterans Fucking Win

Nov 09, 2020
Carrabis Has A Crush
Jared Carrabis and his cell phone join today's episode of the Kirk Minihane Show. Jared, it becomes clear, has fallen head over heels for an Internet influencer -- a 25-year-old bombshell who has left him barely able to concentrate on anything else, even as he awaits news of the Red Sox's hunt for a new manager. Kirk barely avoids a feud with Lights Camera Pod leader Jeff D. Lowe. Jared gives his take on the pitched presidential election roiling the country. Big Cat briefly appears to check in on Jared's love life. Kirk offers a glimpse at the new secret project he's been working on, prompting Jared to volunteer that he, too, has some secret projects up his sleeve.

We'll "Match" Your Ad Buy!!!
The presidential election still hangs in the air as the remaining battleground states struggle to finish counting ballots. Steve is alarmed that a 118-year-old man appears to have voted in Michigan. We've finally gotten to the bottom of the Entercom Radio Johnny who was fired in DC. Speaking of Entercom: WEEI is offering struggling small businesses "matching" ad buys, but their apparent charity is not what it seems. Another Barstool show has landed Jeep.

The trial of the century is set to begin in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone has convinced the Supreme Judicial Court to take up his case against Kirk Minihane, a.k.a. Kevin Cullen. Kirk and Steve receive an insane email from the guy who wants to eat out of the studio toilet for a chance to win tickets to the VFW live show (0:30:00). The Atlantic published a piece of "journalism" that would make the aforementioned Cullen embarrassed (1:00:00). Entercom has fired a DC-based sports talk host for saying, well, they're not saying what he said, but we might have found it (1:10:00). An innocent call from a cat owner leads to an insane story from Steve's childhood. The hunt is on for Tig's grave.
Nov 02, 2020
Kirk Minihane, legendary friend of the men and women who serve America in the armed forces, has once again been targeted by an enemy of freedom. Someone has filed a complaint with the Northampton Health Board in cowardly effort to stop Kirk from saving the Florence VFW with his Nov. 8 live show. These efforts will not succeed and the rat will be found. Spittin' Chiclets host Ryan Whitney joins the show to talk about the passing of notable New England philanthropist Travis Roy (0:28:00).

Twenty-Six Trips
The raffle is complete: Forty-four lucky Minifans have won the chance to attend the Kirk Minihane Show live recording at the VFW hall in Florence. But we've still got unsettled business: Steve from Providence must walk 100-miles from the flophouse he sleeps in to the VFW hall he denigrated and Louis must eat a bean supper out of the studio shitter. Barry Levine, author of "The Spider: Inside the Criminal Web of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell," joins the show to talk with Kirk about the late financiers ties to Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, his mysterious suicide, and more (0:29:00). Intern Justin took a shot at redemption and came up short (0:58:00).

Oct 29, 2020
The penultimate drawing for the VFW live show is complete, which means only 11 more lucky souls will be granted admission to this most exclusive live show. Intern Justin took a trip to Marty Mile, but his aversion to getting robbed and smelling human feces means only disappointment and anger for Kirk (0:31:00). A sports talk radio great has joined Kirk's effort to get Bruce Springsteen on the show. Kind of (0:52:30). Kirk attempts to call into WEEI, leading to a few minutes of The Kirk & Mut Show (0:57:30). Steve from Providence has agreed to undertake the perilous journey from Providence to Northampton in exchange for admission to the VFW live show; S.A.L.G. has some thoughts on that (1:15:30). The show concludes with the indisputably grossest segment in show history.
Oct 28, 2020
Get Walkin'
Following his unwarranted criticism of the Florence VFW, Steve from Providence has been removed from eligibility for the raffle. Instead, Steve's only shot at attending the exclusive live show is for him to walk 100 miles from his shanty in Providence to the VFW hall, arriving no later than 5::59 pm. The second batch of eleven names have been drawn, so let the controversy begin (0:27:00).

Oct 23, 2020
Shaking Hands with the Milkman
By now we've all heard the "grim" tale of CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin. The arch-Trump critic and quasi-celebrity exposed himself to colleagues during a Zoom meeting while masturbating. As the Internet laughed at Toobin's misfortune, Peter Zimmerman, a Professor of History of Education at Penn GSE, got to work on an op-ed for the New York Daily News defending Toobin against the anti-masturbation taboos of post-Enlightenment Western Civilization. Prof. Zimmerman joins us today (0:20:00). Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani is left explaining an awkward situation about Sacha Baron Cohen's new Borat flick caught released some... odd footage.

Add Gilligan's Island to the list of treasured Americana content that now has to come with a trigger warning lest today's audience become offended (0:17:00).

Here's to You Mrs. Robinson

KMarko's Rubber Room
#KirkWasRight when he told Dave Portnoy that former Barstool Sports Editor-in-Chief would eventually fuck up so badly that he'd be forced to fire him. That day has come, and Kirk might not be the first to congratulate the new EIC Coley Mick, but he'll certainly be the loudest and most gleeful.

Oct 09, 2020
Politics Are Serious, Man - Ft. Big Cat
The Vice Presidential debate was so lame that a fly landing on Mike Pence's head stole the headlines. The presidential debate commission is now insisting that the next Trump-Biden bout be virtual, and Trump says he won't play. Rumors fly about Steve's resignation from the Kirk Minihane Show.

Oct 08, 2020
RIP Van Halen, Ft. Steven Hyden
Barstool Sports' days partnering with Sirius XM to distribute Barstool Radio may be numbered, according to Dave Portnoy's tweets throwing down the gauntlet. Kirk talks about the news that the once-great Howard Stern will is reportedly getting a new $100 million deal from Sirius at the same time. What does the post-Sirirus future look like for Barstool Radio? Disgraced former-Calif. Rep. Katie Hill is now going to get the Hollywood treatment in a biopic starring Elizabeth Moss.

Oct 07, 2020
President Donald Trump might be immune from COVID-19 following his hasty discharge from Walter Reed Medical Center yesterday. CNN's Chris Cuomo, without a hint of irony, is concerned that POTUS is spreading propaganda.

On the one year anniversary of his start at Barstool Sports, one thing is clear: Kirk was right. He was right about Mayor Joe Curtatone, he was right about Benjamin Allbright, he was right about the Wilbur Theater, he was right about Entercom, he was right about Madawaska, he was right about Kmarko, he was right about... well, everything. The crew reflects on one wacky year in show business, dissects an awful segment of monologue radio on WEEI, and prepares for yet another controversial segment on Sirius XM - Power 85. Go to for more information. #EdgyKevin

The Skepticism Brigade
As more information comes to light about the various organizations the famous people have been asking us to donate to, it's looking more and more like Kirk was right to ask questions about his Barstool colleagues who joined in on the thoughtless virtue signaling. Blind Mike has discovered the idea of a plainclothes cop (0:13:30). Howard Stern responded to widespread criticism of his old show bits, but in a very bizarre way (0:31:30). KFC is once again having mental breakdowns live on the radio thanks to the Minifans (1:12:00). ESPN's Elle Duncan finds a safe little landing spot on WEEI's worst show.

Howard Stern Lies
Kirk Minihane answers the demands of the Minifans by adding another Saco show to his summer drive-in theater tour. Details at Howard Stern said on The View that he's never used the n-word on the radio; we found dozens and dozens of examples of him using the n-word on radio (0:14:00). A pair of Barstool wannabes tried to make their big break into podcasting by analyzing the Minihane-Kmarko fight and somehow managed to get every single detail wrong (1:03:00). A former NESN sports broadcaster says she fled Boston because of the racism, but she used to say it was all part of her rise to ESPN (1:32:20).

I Don't See It: The Blind Mike Story
Major Show Announcement: Steve Robinson has, for the very first time, been commissioned to write a book. His topic? The Life and Legacy of B. Michael Geary, available everywhere books are sold by Christmas. Barstool CEO Erika Nardini publicly addressed the war between Kirk Minihane and Kmarko on her podcast, Token CEO, bringing a little closure to the fiery dispute between the blog editor and one of Barstool Stool's biggest podcasters (0:58:03). Barstool Nate, a good friend of Simple Keith, joins the show to defend his friend immediately after getting dressed down on Twitter by Dave Portnoy (0:17:30). It's safe to say, Kirk is a goose... Meantime, a major show announcement is expected next week, and if you want to be the first to find out, sign up for the KMS Mailing list: KIRKMINIHANESHOW.COM.

Simple Keith
After learning some interesting things about Kmarko, Kirk Minihane now feels a little remorseful and has decided to help the big guy out. Kirk responds to Dave Portnoy, KFC, and Big Cat, who took to The Rundown last night to talk shit and flaunt their own ignorance of cancel culture (0:19:00). Following Torii Hunter's allegations that multiple children have called him racial slurs at Fenway, the Red Sox are in full pander mode -- and this includes the radio propaganda arm of the organization, WEEI. Kirk reacts to the Red Sox's statement from last night and Hunter's interview on WEEI from earlier in the week (0:31:38). Then, Red Sox President Sam Kennedy actually answers a call from the show and agrees to an on the record interview, in which he states that the Red Sox have not been able to find any records supporting Hunter's claim about the incident with the children (1:04:30).

Kirk Minihane has done what no political leader or Hollywood celebrity has accomplished in the last three decades. A tense, weary, polarized, fractured and disillusioned nation has been united like never before around a singular noble cause: #FireKmarko. Let it echo from sea to shining sea, from New York to L.A., from Madawaska to Panora -- #FireKmarko. In today's show, Kirk elaborates on the treachery of Kmarko's decision to collaborate with a known enemy of Barstool to hurt a Barstool brand. Kmarko's acts of infamy dominate The Rundown, providing Dave Portnoy, KFC, and Big Cat an opportunity to embarrass themselves by proving they have no idea what cancel culture is. Friend of Kmarko Ellie Schnitt says Kirk is "on the wrong side of history" and levels baseless charges of racism against him (0:29:39). Portnoy joins the show (0:40:14). Big Cat joins the show (0:50:34). KFC joins the show (0:56:30). #FireKmarko #FireKmarko #FireKmarko #FireKmarko You can donate to the #FireKmarko fund here:

Kmarko Delenda Est
After a poorly written smear piece on Kirk Minihane appears on the Barstool Sports blog, Kirk questions how it happened and why. All answers lead to Barstool Editor-in-Chief Keith Markovich, a.k.a. Kmarko, who for some inexplicable reason hates the Kirk Minihane Show and wants to cause us harm. Kirk goes through the sophomoric attempt to produce a coherent argument on today's show and talks about his subsequent phone calls with Kmarko and Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy. The entire show is crystallized by the Steve's A Liar guy's beautiful song writing.
Jun 09, 2020
Blind Mike went to a birthday party on Saturday and Kirk is disgusted. The country continues to convulse following the killing of George Floyd and widespread civil unrest. MA Gov. Charlie Baker has allowed us to enter "Phase 2" of his idiotic re-opening scheme. Newspaper editors are dropping like flies as left-wing agitators revolt against diversity of thought in the op-ed pages. Kirk tells two fantastic stories -- one from his childhood and one as an adult -- that show what a pain in the ass he was as a kid. God bless Patricia Minihane... (1:05:00). Kirk responds to Torii Hunter's claim that Boston children have called him racial slurs (2:00:00). J.K. Rowling dives headlong into the culture wars.

Bye Bye Law & Order
As the country continues to grapple with issues of race, privilege, policing, justice, and inequality, new voices are emerging with various solutions -- some more helpful than others. In the Washington Post, a columnist proposes that we eliminate all movies and TV shows featuring cops, while others urge the defunding of police departments. Meanwhile, controversy at the New York Times over an oped from Sen. Tom Cotton and calls for censorship. Robert Littal, the founder and editor of Black Sports Online, joins the show again to talk about Drew Brees and his comments regarding the America flag as well as the police killing of George Floyd (1:00:40). President Trump says some insane shit at a jobs press conference, so Kirk brings in notable right-wing apologist S.E Robinson to explain it away (1:32:40).

The Gina Show
The Kirk Minihane Show announces a new live show coming on July 25 in Saco, ME. Visit for more information and to purchase tickets. Minihane responds to the media panic over New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees saying he doesn't like it when the American flag is disrespected (0:13:40). Ellie Schnitt, the host of Barstool's podcast Schnitt Talk, fought back against Minihane's criticism of her comments on recent protests, rioting, and looting (0:24:10). Happily, the affray introduces us to Gina -- the protest tutor you will come to love.
Jun 04, 2020
against the wind; against the wall; against the sky
Outside agitators have conspired to ruin Blind Mike's trip to Florida with Latino Kirk and Intern Will, and Kirk ain't happy about it. Social media has descended into a chaotic mess of fake news, virtue signaling, and tribalism following the killing of George Floyd and massive civil unrest (0:47:40). The new Deadspin takes an idiotic swipe at Tiger Woods (0:59:20). Widespread pleas to donate to various organizations raise questions about where the money is going and why (1:13:10).

The crew reacts to the peaceful-protest-turned-riot last night in Boston and elsewhere across the country (0:33:40). MA Gov. Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh are, as always, uninspiring. Kirk learns that Intern Will and Latino Kirk are planning another big adventure; so begins another exciting chapter in the life of Blind Mike.
Jun 02, 2020
Maineward Bound
Kirk Minihane goes live from the studio to download on the George Floyd killing, the peaceful protests, the violent riots, and the corrupt media and politicians. Barstool personalities invite us to help looters pay bail and share antiracist reading lists. Mike Francesa thinks he's finally sniffed out a prank caller. The new Jeffrey Epstein documentary on Netflix is a great watch, but there's a few glaring omissions (0:49:24). The protests come to Boston as the boys are taping (1:07:00). Kirk and Steve decide they're moving the show to Maine, but will Mike come along for the ride?
Jun 01, 2020
The GearHeads Go to War
Shocking footage of a so-called "comfort zone" in downtown Boston (brought to you exclusively by the Kirk Minihane Show) reveals the sordid conditions that political leaders in Massachusetts have created for the most vulnerable members of society. Will any one ask Gov. Charlie Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh how this fits with their coronavirus strategies? Blind Mike has led the Gearheads to war against radio host Thom Hartmann, an old rival of S.E. Robinson (0:29:00). A new shake up in the wacky world of Boston radio doesn't inspire (0:59:00). Saturday night is trivia night and Minihane will be pitted against a Minifan who kind of looks like Matt Damon from Team America.
May 29, 2020
Mike's Denial
A comedian Blind Mike interviewed dumped all over him on another show, but Mike is in denial. Former Vice President Joe Biden sharted during a news interview -- the evidence is incontrovertible (0:20:00). The Jeffrey Katzenberg / Meg Whitman content project -- Quibi -- is a billion dollar experiment in offering shitty content (0:39:30). MA Gov. Charlie Baker is squirming as more questions are asked about his failures to protect veterans in care facilities susceptible to coronavirus (1:01:00). Exclusive Minifan footage from a so-called "Comfort Center" in downtown Boston shows vividly that Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's anti-pandemic policies are failing those experiencing homelessness. Minihane addresses last night's Minifan drama.
May 28, 2020
Sans Internet
On the final show before debuting on the Barstool Radio SiriusXM network, the men find themselves without Internet but with plenty to talk about. Mass. Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito embarrasses herself with a lie-strewn explanation of the Memorial Weekend party she attended over the weekend; meantime Gov. Charlie Baker has his hands full with a major coronavirus scandal (0:17:21). President Trump's tweets about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough have led to pleas for Twitter to ban the Commander in Chief from the social media platform (0:33:42).

Mike Francesa's wildly unsuccessful online only show is no more (0:45:45). Kirk addresses the latest viral controversy from New York, a.k.a. KarenGate.
May 27, 2020
Minihane to SiriusXM
The Kirk Minihane Show is coming to Barstool Sports' Sirius XM channel one day per week starting Wednesday at 11am EST. The First Annual Dave Portnoy Memorial 5k was a thrilling success with zero fatalities and huge sport from Erika Nardini, Big Cat, and even Tucker Carlson. Kirk actually enjoyed 'Champions for Charity', the golf event featuring Tiger Woods, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Phil Mickelson (0:28:30). Larry King inked a $5 million podcasting deal, but we don't buy it. Kirk reacts to Call Her Daddy host Alexandra Cooper telling her side of the story. Joe Biden says black people who don't vote for him aren't actually black. MA Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito reportedly had a Memorial Day weekend party despite being a member of the Lock It Down gang. New evidence has emerged in SnapperGate (0:48:38).
May 26, 2020
The final show before the Dave Portnoy Memorial 5k on Saturday, May 23. (If you're not running, you can watch the broadcast live on the Kirk Minihane Show Youtube channel and the KMS Twitter feed.) In a loose Thursday night show, the crew talks pizza and Ben Volin's shitty attempt at journalism. Blind Mike bombs an interview with a comedian who totally wasn't big-timing him -- a contribution to the show only outdone by a strange 40-second audio clip submitted by DEC. Callers inform, annoy, and amuse.
May 22, 2020
Donald Trump, Jr., Barstool Big Cat, and Mike Francesa
Sirius host Howard Stern has declared war on President Trump and his supporters, including his son Donald Trump, Jr. Don joins the show to talk about Stern, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Dave Portnoy's investment in Chinese companies (0:57:00). "Mike Francesa" calls in to preview the New York Giants upcoming schedule, but oddly never mentions the radio host's dismissal of sexual assault allegations made by two NFL players (1:45:40). Big Cat drops by for some reading recommendations and a little Peter Nelson talk (2:04:10).
May 21, 2020
Amber Alert
The Call Her Daddy situation has escalated with a co-host posting a bizarre Instagram video. Peter Nelson's douchiness soars to yet greater heights. Matt Lauer has emerged from hiding to pile on Ronan Farrow after New York Times columnist Ben Smith started asking questions about his journalism. New England's favorite stand up comedian has done it again (0:43:55). Tom Brady is hocking "immunity" supplements, but he's totally not taking advantage of the pandemic to make a buck for Alex Guerrero. Speaking of which: The Kirk Minihane Show is excited to announce our new line of products that will cure coronavirus and bestow immortality (0:58:12). Kevin Cullen's "hair cut" column in the Boston Globe now carries an editor's note, but not the one it deserves (1:13:00). A young caller has escaped from DEC basement.
May 20, 2020
Peter Nelson Is a Douche
Erika Nardini and Dave Portnoy both dropped podcasts sharing their side of the Call Her Daddy dispute and one thing is clear: Peter Nelson is a gigantic douche -- the douchiest douche to ever douche. Kirk had a phone call with Boston Globe managing director Linda Pizzuti about the latest suspect Kevin Cullen column (0:26:00). The much-ballyhooed final episodes of The Last Dance did not live up to the hype (0:48:28). Ben Smith's New York Times column questioning the work of #MeToo journalist Ronan Farrow was unsatisfying, but still raised serious questions about Farrow's sloppiness (1:06:48). Kenny Bania really wants you to follow him on Twitter.
May 19, 2020
Blind Mike's 5k test-run with Brittle Bones Ted raises questions about his weight. Kirk is ready to put some of the Youtube shows on the chopping block. The Call Her Daddy girls are feuding, according to the NY Post. MA Gov. Charlie Baker is set to make an announcement today about the future of business in the Commonwealth. New England's least funny stand-up comedian takes on quarantine life (0:42:00). The callers join in the Mike fat-shaming -- some better than others.

May 18, 2020
Where Are The Pols' Paycuts?
As the country struggles on through coronavirus and economic depression, Kirk asks whether MA Gov. Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh have taken pay cuts? Have any government employees seen reduced salaries or furloughs while the rest of America suffers? Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy is the tribune of the working people, but Minifans will always remember that Kirk was predicting his political career well before Elon Musk. Joe Buck backtracks his comments about how the NFL will handle the coming season, Joe Biden senility is on display again, and Kirk responds to negativity from Minifans.

The crew sorts through the latest Minifan drama, including a bloody three-on-one assault from Friday night (0:32:10).

Jerry Stiller has passed away following unconfirmed reports that he was seen dining this weekend at Mamma Mia's (1:14:15).
May 11, 2020
Victory Over Mariah Day
The Internet, clearly and unambiguously, has declared Kirk Minihane more popular and talented than Mariah Carey; he was won a striking victory in the Lambily-Minifan War of 2020. Kirk reacts to Megyn Kelly's new interview with Tara Reade, the woman who has accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993 (0:24:24). Claims of censorship roil the Kirk Minihane Show Youtube as we debate whether any of the shows should be placed on the chopping block (0:36:00). Nathan, a member of Mariah's Lambily, joins the show to defend her honor (0:54:00). Big Cat, following his help in the war, joins the show to talk about football and conspiracy theories (1:06:44).

The Lambily Goes to War
The Minifans are locked in a heated and vitriolic war with the Lambily. What is the Lambily? Why are we at war? Those questions will likely haunt Matt Carano until he has dinner at Mamma Mia's. Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey is likening his plight to that of the tens of millions of low-income workers who are now jobless and desperate across the planet thanks to the coronavirus pandemic (0:34:00).

Apr 30, 2020
It's happened again: The Minifans have become complacent. But Podcast Jesus always holds out the potential for human redemption. Steve didn't fire intern Nick, and Kirk suspects it has something to do with his boyish good looks (0:33:30). Kirk's old radio network is growing more desperate than ever in the sportless coronavirus era. Exhibit A is yesterday's "mystery guest" on OMF (0:53:00).

An all-star day from the callers, featuring Greg and Pamela Smart, Kim Jong Un, and several members of the KMS crew's families.
Apr 28, 2020
The New England Patriots drafted kicker Justin Rohrwasser -- an otherwise inconsequential event until the Boston media discovered the Marshall University graduate has a tattoo associated with the Three Percenters. Black Sports Online Editor-in-Chief Robert Littal joins the show to defend the media reaction to Rohrwasser's ink and his apparent sympathies with right-wing causes (0:30:50). President Trump is growing restless in the White house during the coronavirus lockdown, as evidenced by a series of Sunday night tweets about the Noble Prize (0:52:55).

Kirk Needs an Alibi
Kirk was assaulted on his morning run. That's his story and he's sticking to it... The Warden of the North has found new audio from S.E. Robinson's old battles with Thom Hartmann (0:31:40). The MLB investigation into the Red Sox cheating scandal has, predictably, thrown some unknown underling under the bus, while exonerating Alex Cora and the front office.

Andrew Cuomo and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh both find ways to sound like buffoons in the middle of the coronavirus crisis. Erika K. Nardini joins the show for a heated fight with Kirk.

Going Backwards
The May 4th deadline to reopen schools in Massachusetts is looking less and less plausible as Kirk comes to grips with a quarantined life that may linger on into the fall. We open the phone lines to start the show before digging into the headlines: CNN's Chris Cuomo has emerged from his basement in a staged coronavirus recovery video, but did he even have the virus?; North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is reportedly ill, but that might be fake news; President Trump has halted all immigration in to the U.S., but is it too late?

Bye Bye Blind Mike
Kirk Minihane is enraged to discover that someone in his operation posted a promotion for an Entercom show on KMS social media property. We investigate who in the KMS world is playing digital footsies with mortal enemies.

Kevin Cullen Day
Today marks the anniversary of Kevin Cullen's downfall.

Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
Kirk Minihane is pissed about the tribal warfare taking place in the Miniverse and he's here to lay down the law. The Boston Globe followed up on its horrendous Pats mask story during MA Gov. Charlie Baker's coronavirus press conference (0:37:26). Also in the Globe: Joan Vennochi has an amazing column defending former Vice President Joe Biden against the accusation that he sexually assaulted a young staffer in 1993 (0:57:20). And continuing on that theme: The former Obama staffers who host Crooked Media's Pod Save America give Tara Reade's story their own unique treatment (1:11:40).
