HLS Podcast: 2018 Blue/Gold Recap

April 22, 2018

It's been far too long so Shane and Ryan use the Blue/Gold scrimmage to get back in to the podcasting game while catching up on some major ND related news. Be sure to catch future live recordings on twitch.tv/herloyalsons!


On Vacation

February 21, 2018

Vacation is supposed to be that thing in which you get some quality R&R--unless you are the NCAA and that term means stripping wins for no damned good reason. Enough news happened since our last podcast, so here we all talking NCAA punishing ND for punishing their own as well some other headlines that caught our eye over the last month.

Oh, and we're going to start streaming this thing on Twitch as well. Head over to twitch.tv/herloyalsons and give us a follow if you like some visuals with your audio.

HLS trying new technology...what could possibly go wrong?!


Tide Rolls and the ND Offseason Steamrolls

January 11, 2018

Folks, the 2017 has officially concluded. In true fashion, the podcast is delayed a day which, of course, brings some of the worst possible news for Notre Dame fans. Plus, winners are announced for the HLS Pick 'Em. We will take a bit of a break after this episode--mostly to avoid bringing any further terrible news for at least a little while.


SEC: Swiping Elko and Championships

January 5, 2018

Podcasting is a fun medium; however, when using it to cover a sport that can go zero to stupid at the drop of the hat things get weird. With no plans to talk about Notre Dame at all in this episode, Shane and Ryan recorded early, blissfully unaware that Mike Elko would hold a job in College Station the following day. So, as sweet summer children, they do nothing but preview the National Championship between Georgia and Alabama (while attempting to crown UCF as CFB's true champion).

Through the magic of podcasting time travel, Eddie and Ryan are able to chat about the earth-shattering development that rocked Notre Dame fans by recording later after the news broke.

So...yeah, this episode is a little interesting and this is all either the result of Brian Kelly's halftime blood sacrifice to win the Citrus Bowl, an attempt to divide by zero, or the end result of having two SEC teams in the title game.


We Demand More Citrus! (aka, The Sickcast)

January 4, 2018

Ryan and Shane could use every last bit of vitamin C from the Citrus Bowl trophy as they are both under the weather to break down Notre Dame's victory over LSU. It's like a drunkcast, only more sober and painful on the vocal chords.


Citrus Bowl Preview

December 29, 2017

The cold open returns as does Notre Dame football! Shane and Ryan take an in-depth look at the upcoming Citrus Bowl between the Fighting Irish and LSU. Plus, picks for the rest of the bowl games with Eddie. This is the final episode of 2017 and, when next your ears meet our voices, we will have only one college football game remaining.


HLS Santa Brings the Bowl Picks

December 25, 2017

Merry Christmas, Loyal Listeners! As promised, here are the bowl picks for the rest of the Christmas week to get you to the weekend. Enjoy the football holiday cheer from Eddie and I!


An Exclusive Signing Day Interview!

December 21, 2017

‘Tis the Season for Better Bowl Picks

December 18, 2017

Eddie and I are clearly out of practice because the Saturday bowl slate did not end well for us. As we approach Christmas, it's time for us to get back on track after putting our first postseason ball in the water. After all, this is the season of giving and we simply decided to give everyone else in the pick 'em a head start on us.


The 2017 HLS Bowl Pick ‘Em Begins!

December 14, 2017

With the Extra Life stream in the books, it's time to get back to football. Eddie and I officially open the bowl pick 'em (herloyalsons.com/pickem) by picking the small slate of five games this Saturday. Yes, it's probably bad football, but it's football and there's spreads and an Amazon gift card is on the line! Come join in the fun and prepare yourself for the joyous bowl season with us.
