Ladies & gentlemen, welcome to this year's 10th episode of Blerd Radio! In this episode, Big Money joins forces with Bill Bodkin from Pop-break.com for a wide-ranging hour of chat that focuses heavily on what music, movies and television we'll be checking out this summer (holy crap, it's almost Memorial Day!)
We also discuss:
-The origin of the name Pop-break.com and how it relates to...Keanu Reeves?
-Why television's representation of the Jersey Shore (from where Bill originates) is ALL WRONG.
-That one time when Bill almost killed Simon Pegg.
-Big Money getting all hubba hubba over Zach Galifianakis
-We coin the term "gutler."
-Bill's undying love for Leonardo Dicrapio DiCaprio
-Future president Chris Christie and a cautionary tale about having sex with someone who has had lap band surgery.
-Why the cancelling of "Happy Endings" is the worst thing to happen to TV
and a whole lot more. Enjoy the show and be on the lookout for future Big Money/Bill podcasts!

As we do every now and then, Blerd Radio is making a quick diversion into basketball territory.
In this episode, Big Money is joined by GG as well as Jay from The New York Knicks podcast for an hour of playoff talk.
Although several games have been played since the episode was recorded, the teams involved remain the same. So, we discuss...
Do GG's Warriors really have what it takes to pick off the veteran San Antonio Spurs? (and why does GG want to get rid of David Lee so much?)
Can the Oklahoma City Thunder stand strong against the intmidating physicality of the Memphis Grizzlies without Russell Westbrook? In retrospect, do you think it might have been a good idea to keep James Harden, seeing as Serge Ibaka has faded into the background?
Is Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibideau playing mind games with the league officials, considering several questionable calls have popped up in their series against the Miami Heat? And why isn't Miami wiping the floor with a ridiculously shorthanded Bulls team?
Are the Indiana Pacers a junior version of the Memphis Grizzlies, and will the New York Knicks' JR Smith learn to stop partying with the likes of Rihanna and concentrate on basketball? Also...why does Jay call Amar'e Stoudamire the "black cloud?"
Who the hell voted Denver Nuggets coach George Karl Coach of the Year?
Will Chris Paul stay with the Los Angeles Clippers although he and superstar Blake Griffin appear to have major beef?
How fucked up are the Los Angeles Lakers?
(according to Jay, not as fucked up as the Brooklyn Nets.)
If the Miami Heat wins championship #2, are LeBron James' days numbered?
