Did You Reddit?

A (mostly) weekly podcast about the Internet, by way of Reddit: the front page of the Internet. Each episode, u/ItsYerDad, u/MyFreeday, and u/DogBoobes discuss a different Subreddit, and the subcultures that this subreddit is about…kindof.



episode 197: 197: r/blaseball, how sports fandoms work, and why something this confusing is so fun

Listen, we love splorts on this pod, as you may have noticed by now, and there's no better splort than the galaxy's interdimensional pastime, Blaseball. You may have heard us briefly talk about Blaseball on a recent FPR, totally ignorant to the profound nature of this sport, but after spending a few days fully invested, we decided to spend the full episode trying to break down what it is exactly that we love so much about this bizarre Internet phenomenon. So, this episode we talk about how Blaseball started, the basic rules, and our POV on what makes this whole thing so fun, despite virtually every element of it being almost impossible to follow.
