Podcast: The Guardian's Andrew Lawrence on the Bears, Bulls and F1
Will the Bears blow it? What's wrong with the Bulls? And why you should watch F1
Andrew Lawrence, columnist at The Guardian, is back on the podcast. He writes about important issues like culture, politics, the NFL, NBA and F1, but he’s up for the regular nonsense of the Pointless Exercise Podcast.
They discuss how the Bears could botch the number one pick, whether they’d actually trade Justin Fields, what makes Fields so exciting and how top draft prospect Jalen Carter’s sad legal problems might impact his draft status.
They discuss the Bulls’ struggles and how much they miss Lonzo Ball, and how a team with good players and a good coach isn’t very good because somehow the pieces just don’t fit together. They ponder whether the Jordan Era Bulls should even be considered part of the same franchise as this recurring mess.
Then, they talk about the upcoming F1 season and why it’s the best, most fun auto racing that there is. They talk about the drivers, the team “principals”, controversies, and the Netflix “Drive to Survive” docuseries. Andy makes the case that F1 is an easy sport to add to your current rooting interests because there are only 10 teams, 20 drivers, the races are time limited and fun to watch on TV, and everything about it is really cool.
That and much, much, more.
