On Hyphen Nation, I combine all my loves into one. Sometimes, you’ll get an episode about why Barack Obama is a fan of the show. Sometimes, you’ll get an episode about Scrubs. Sometimes, you’ll get an episode about the greatest MCs of all-time. Welcome to Hyphen Nation. Support this podcast:

GUEST MONOLOGUE BY MATTHEW SPENCER. Marcus and I spend this episode remembering Kobe. Rest in peace to all 9 people who lost their lives. May your families find peace in this difficult time. Happy birthday Mom. --- Support this podcast:
And we're back! And we're late. Sorry. As you'll be able to tell, THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, has underwent some changes and hopefully for better. I start things off with a retraction about LeVar Burton's t-shirt pointed out to me by Errick, then I apologize for the mess that was 150. After that, Angel joined me on my birthday to finish watching the 2011 Royal Rumble that I started a few episodes ago. Next episode is for Kobe. This episode was brought to you by Girl Meets World and Kobe Bryant's Muse. --- Support this podcast:
I start out with some 2019 statistics, just like a normal State Of The Podcast Address would begin. I make some goals but I keep using past tense. Then I announce that this is the last episode of Hyphen Nation. My 2020 State Of The Podcast Address becomes my Farewell Address to THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST. Then I woke up this morning and felt like a fool. So I once again don the mantle of Spider-M, er, um, your faithful host of Hyphen Nation. Show's rolling; kick it. Aaliyah comes in to clarify things with me at the end. And there are clips from some of the  first 100 episodes too! Special thanks to Maps for the intro and outro on short notice; I meant every word I said... and then I changed my mind. I promise you, my mental health is good. I thought ending the show would make my life easier; but I woke up feeling empty. This episode was brought to you by Frasier and Sex Education. --- Support this podcast:
Inspired by S05 E13 of ILaPoW and someone saying something that triggered me, we get the closest thing to my origin story on THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST. I discuss my upbringing, when I first became aware of my blackness, race, racism, and when someone qualifies as black enough to not be called the opposite. This episode was brought to you by NXT’s Women’s Number 1 Contender battle royale and Pain & Gain. --- Support this podcast:
Just when I thought I was missing Sunday's episode, I made it happen! This time out on THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST,  I discuss the curious case of Snoop Lion. I follow that up by naming the 2019 winner of my Best In The World award. If you looked at the episode artwork though, you already know. I'm sleepy and it may be because of a full moon. This episode was brought to you by Dave Chappelle's speech when he won the Mark Twain Prize. --- Support this podcast:
I got nothing. I really don't. So much so that I pull out an old story that I've posted before and read it while spouting out ideas of spiders and why toilet bowls need to be clogged with bathmats. Then I watch the 2011 Royal Rumble since this year's event is right around the corner, realize how long it is, and then promptly stop halfway through the thing with promises to finish it soon. This smells very skippable. I really hate the Booker T photo too. This episode was brought to you by The Avengers. --- Support this podcast:
Happy New Year! Happy 2020! Happy... no, I told you I don't care that 145 was released in 2020, this is the first episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST for a new decade! Today, we talk about the fascinating world of dog owners and the dogs who love them! We briefly talk about the death of former NBA commissioner David Stern. Oh yeah, my love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is discussed. This episode was brought to you by Fraiser; good job by you Hulu for still having it. --- Support this podcast:
After our marathon sports podcast with George Gerbo, Marcus and I still had a little work to do. For the third time in as many years, we sat down to record our year end Numbers On The Board episode. But this time, instead of going through questions and making picks for different topics in 2019... we just talked. We discussed what the 2009 versions of ourselves would say to our 2019 counterparts. We played some word association. And then we each chose one goal we'd like to work on for 2020. It's a new year but this was recorded last Friday. We'll get to all that 20 20 experience very soon.

As promised, George Gerbo is back on the show (also the newest member of the Three Timers Club)! And my semi-regular co-host Marcus "Showinmadlov" Robinson as well. We discuss 2010-2019 in the sports including our favorite teams, favorite villains, biggest blunders, overrated blanks, and much more! There's great takes, good takes, hot takes, and Derrick Rose takes and I would assume you don't need much more incentive than that.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST! On this Christmas Day edition where I left my family at home long enough to do this, I recap Christmas morning and the gifts I received. Then I talk about Christmas mass at our church and just how good our priest is at telling stories. I forgot to talk about his snarky comment about people coming to church regularly or once or twice a year, but I digress. Do you even read the show notes or do you just skim through them? Then I talk about a good Christmas memory and share a bad one from the mid-90s. This episode was brought to you by Descendants 3 and no one letting me watch A Christmas Story. --- Support this podcast:
On this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I pitch a perfect game. Not to pat myself on the back on anything but I'm really proud of this one. We start off by talking about the traditions we have for our jewelry and then i eulogize a friend while talking about life back in my rapper days. Things don't get better but I had to talk about Donald getting impeached and what that could mean going forward. Then I spend a little time revisiting Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse; solo this time. This episode was brought you by Full House and Captain America: Civil War. --- Support this podcast:
Not to be confused with Episode 43 from December 2017 (I would rename this one but to be honest... I don't want to)! As December creeps along, I return with a whole bushel full o' spoilers! First up is a recap of the events of The Walking Dead Season 10 thus far, then a quick jaunt to the Disney Movie Review Podcast so I can finally talk about Frozen II, and then a sober rant about a certain San Francisco based Netflix show .

On this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I'm mad. I talked about how well the Raiders were doing on Episode 130 and now they're 6-8 with two games to go. Football is a funny thing, especially when you blow a 13-3 lead in your final home game at Oakland to the Jaguars. At least Jason Mendoza's happy. Then the backlash from his own cast against The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson gets me all riled up about my fears the The Rise Of Skywalker will fix everything so-called Star Wars fans hated about it... while telling the same stories we've seen before with new characters. This episode was brought to you by WWE TLC, Return Of The Jedi, and The Force Awakens. --- Support this podcast:
This episode didn't take that long to record but it truly feels like its been a few months since I started this whole thing at this point. This time, I re-record the first half of the episode after a recording snafu and discuss the 2013 film Drinking Buddies starring Olivia WIlde and Jake Johnson. Then I turn my attention to whether Zion Williamson should play this season and if Cam Newton is washed with the Panthers looking to trade him. This episode was brought to you by The Social Network. --- Support this podcast:
I start things off by honoring a fallen member of the Spider-Man creative team, Tom Lyle. Once I finally get my act together (no tears, just procrastination), what I thought was going to be a brief topic about Creed II turned into a whole dissection of the November 2018 sequel to the Ryan Coogler 2015 film. Viktor was robbed. This episode was brought to you by Song Association courtesy of Terrell Grice's YouTube channel. --- Support this podcast:
Very early when I created Hyphen Nation, I knew I wanted to talk about my love for The Devil Wears Prada. I think Marcus and I even talked about it way back on Episode #34. Almost 4 years later, I sat down with the newest member of the 5-Time Guest Club, Angel Conley. We give you a running commentary on this 2004 film starring Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, and Stanley Tucci from start to finish, so have your play button ready! Or just listen wherever.

I'm late! That's only because I wrapped this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST roughly 12 hours ago, drove home to Morgantown, spent the evening with my family, and then started editing. I'm going to pass out as soon as I finish typing this. My father, Daniel Conley, returns to the show for the first time in 2 years! And we talk a whole lot of sports. The debate on which athletes are truly great is... well, debated. A lively discussion about professional wrestling is had. And we play a game where I name a professional athlete and Dad gives me the first things that come to mind. And I lost my podcast. It happens.

On this edition of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I may have had the greatest chicken sandwich of all time... but the verdict is still out. My first experience with the Popeye's spicy chicken sandwich is detailed. And I just fart around for the rest of the episode making animal sounds. All jokes aside, CM Punk is now a Fox Sports employee appearing on FS1's WWE Backstage. What does all this mean? I hash out the what ifs and if the Second City Saint will actually get back into the squared circle.

On this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST: Previously on It's Like A Podcast Or Whatever: It's episode 96 on the road to 100 and it's a doozy. This time, Handsome Bane called in the Boss of the Hyphen Podcast Group, B. Hyphen himself along with his semi regular co-host and CFO of the HPG, THE Marc Rob(inson). The two of them have been tasked with the Herculean job of answering one question; Which album is better, Childish Gambino's "Because the Internet" or Kendrick Lamar's "Good Kid, Mad City". But rather than take each song from the two projects, they decide to take the top 5 MOMENTS from each and weigh them against one another. Will the music be all that matters? Or will sequencing, storyline or even marketing be the deciding factor? In the end, you will be asked to listen to each case and make a subjective and informed decision. Put your thinking caps on because it doubles as a swim cap as we take this deep dive into two albums that set the bar really high in the early 2010s. Love trust and belief!

As the Cleveland Browns wrapped up a win against their division rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night, all hell broke lose. Mason Rudolph didn't take too kindly to Myles Garrett's late game tackle after he had gotten rid of the ball, so he lashed out at the Browns' star DE. Garrett then ripped the QB's helmet off and when Rudolph continued to provoke him... Myles Garrett smashed the helmet into Rudolph's head. Within you'll hear my thoughts before the suspensions were announced. In other sports news, Carmelo Anthony has a job in the NBA again!
