Deadcast: Is Britt McHenry The Perfect Villain?

Given the fact that the Problem Internet can find a way to turn virtually any piece of news into a low-grade Kenyon College term paper, I found myself surprised this week that there was no hot taker out there willing to defend ESPN reporter and Sweet Valley High character Britt McHenry. I figured Slate would immediately throw down a “What we talk about when we talk about Britt McHenry” screed, but no. Nothing. Everyone seems to be in perfect agreement that Britt McHenry sucks, which may make her the perfect villain for the Internet age. And that, along with a great many other things, is one of the subjects of today’s Deadcast.

We also recreate the Brian Price rant without any annoying bleeps, read some Tebow hate mail aloud (there was a lot of it), answer a Funbag question, and lodge a bunch of old man complaints about trailers and late NBA playoff tipoff times. We’re already mere weeks away from this shit sounding like old Tony Kornheiser repeats. Anyway, if you have anything you’d like to hear discussed on the revived podcast, just send it in to with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
