A $315,000 House Where We Can Hibernate For Winter

Today is the very first day of autumn in Philadelphia. Technically, this is not true, but I had to put a sweatshirt on this morning when I walked to get my coffee, and then questioned my decision to get iced coffee because my hand got too cold. These are the hallmarks of autumn, and so […]

The Distraction podcast

The Distraction

New episodes on Thursdays

Drew Magary and David Roth should really stick to sports. Sure, their new indie sports podcast will break down the week in sports: the Mets grounding into quadruple plays, NBA players getting testy on the court and horny on Instagram, or Bill Belichick cutting 80% of his roster just to keep himself interested.

Every week is a VERY long week these days. We could all use a little Distraction.
