About this Episode

Beloved baseball movie in which there is no crying A League Of Their Own is the latest film to get a series reboot -- with a bunch of twists -- on Amazon Prime. We talked to Yahoo! Sports's Liz Roscher about the casting, the bifurcated stories, whether the baseball holds up, what happened to the Rockford Peaches' manager (and to Candy Bar Guy #1), and all that 2022 dialogue rattling around 1943. Is it a homer, or a whiff? We also went Around The Dial with Never Have I Ever, Drag Race's international entries, the Better Call Saul series finale, and a This Fool follow-up before Liz tasked herself with getting a Series 7 ep of Taskmaster into the Canon. The state of New Jersey was a winner, the surveillance state was a loser, and we rolled ourselves a nice fat Game Time about S04.E20s. Should you put that mustard on a hot dog, or your face? Only one way to find out -- with an all-new Extra Hot Great.

Support EHG on Patreon

  • The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positively Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up at 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
