Thunder Treats Podcast Episode 046: The Ohio State Buckeyes (and the Rest of College Football) vs. The SEC
Welcome to episode 046 of the Thunder Treats Podcast! On this week’s episode, we welcome in Dante DeLisio as we talk about ESPN and how they continue, comically, to suck at the teet that is the Southeastern Conference. Some of the statements made by the big heads at the World Wide Leader have left many of the Ohio State fans, and college football fans in general, scratching their collective heads in astonishment.
Full disclosure, we are all Ohio State fans, but this is an issue that extends past the mothership’s hatred for the Big 10 conference.

Welcome to episode 045 of the Thunder Treats Podcast! We are still rolling strong! Last week we thanked you for listening after our numbers soared to 3,000 listeners for episode 043.
