B!tchcast EPISODE 3: Big Brother Blizzard.

January 11, 2010

B!tchcast
A couple of days ago, we finally recorded Episode Three of the B!tchcast, and it’s available for download right now.

A new year with new minds to twist and bend to our collective will, Episode 3 is here and as per usual no one is safe. We talk about real superheroes, Blizzard’s recent bounty hunting helpfulness, and of course a lot of other things that have nothing to do with anything originally intended. Check it out and enjoy!

    This isn’t about you, it’s about one of your co-hosts who got something way factually wrong on the podcast. Your co-host said there was a high school coach who locked in a kid in a dark shed for epilepsy. The details are completely wrong, and it smacks of your co-host not doing the research.

    1) It was not a high school coach, it was a college coach at Texas Tech, Mike Leach (who has since been fired). Texas Tech is a Division 1 program in a major conference (the Big 12)

    2) The player in question was locked in a storage shed because he was suffering the after-effects of a concussion, not epilepsy. Granted, that’s still abuse, and that’s why Leach was fired, but it doesn’t excuse the mistake.

    3) Your co-host says this story would not get the same attention as the kidnapped girl because it’s about sports. On the contrary, since the story broke on December 28th, it has been covered for days on ESPN (the largest national cable sports channel), the nightly news, cable news channels, USA Today, and the Associated Press. In addition, the topic of player abuse in college football has been a hot topic in the media recently as 3 head coaches, Leach, Mark Mangino at Kansas, and Jim Leavitt at South Florida, have all been fired for player abuse.

    4) Your co-host has said the coach was on trial for “mistreatment of children”. There are no criminal charges pending. In fact Mike Leach, the fired coach, is the one who filed a civil suit against Texas Tech over the firing due to legal technicalities. (Incidentally, the University is rightly standing it’s ground and not settling). Yes, the coach is till going to court, but there is a difference between a civil case and a criminal case.

    Please inform your fellow podcasters to do a little research.

    P.S. sorry to do this on your blog, but with an address like “hatemail@b1tchcast.com”, I doubt he’s going to answer and I don’t know how to contact him.
