This week, the guys hit on a bunch of different topics before taking an in-depth look at why one local team is the top dog in its conference right now.

Two big pieces of news: the first is that we’re now on Instagram! Follow us at @boobirdspodcast!

The second: we’re having our first-ever Boo Birds Podcast giveaway! See below for the details; if you’re lucky, you just may be the recipient of a Chase Utley bobblehead!

Is Aaron Nola an Ace? The Boo Birds Podcast

This week, the guys do their first combined "What Are You Drinking?" taste test, where Joe surprises John with a can of PBR Hard Coffee (5:27). After getting through that, John kicks off a discussion about the Sixers (13:01) before Joe explains the European Super League proposal (that fell apart before the episode even dropped) and why it was so widely loathed (23:52).  Then, John airs a grievance after three decades (39:57) before the guys talk about the Aaron Nola conversation (46:25) and the black hole that is center field at Citizens Bank Park (58:08).
