    On the 5/16/17 pod stated that he never forgives and his EA FIFA rating for forgiveness would be equal to Brad Guzan's attacking rating. Davo said his own quality is tolerance, not forgiveness.
    On the 5/22/17 pod Rog disclosed his secret double life would be as a Studs Terkel inspired interviewer... or as an Everton FC player. His life goal was to score the winning goal at the FA Cup final. Davo pointed out that none of that was very secret. Rog then amended his response and said his secret double life would be holding the title of the King of the Netherlands.
    On the 6/7/17 pod when discussing recent terror attacks in London, Rog responded to @jasonlkennedy's question "Could Millwall supporters ever be tamed enough to form an effective counter-terrorist force? Is the beer the answer?" to which Rog responded "Jason, whatever the question, beer is always the answer."
    On the 6/26/17 pod discussed their trip to The Open. The discussed their awkward conversation with their make-up artists at the EA Sports event. "Is it true that all Englishmen like to wear women's underwear?" Rog responded with "You mean Mummy's knickers?"
    On the 8/9/17 pod compared Wayne Rooney's return to Everton like a salmon who returned to spawn and die. Davo stated that was the nicest thing Roger has ever said about Wayne Rooney on the pod. On the same pod, Davo predicted United to win the league, City second, Liverpool third and Everton fourth. Rog predicted City first, United second, Chelsea 3rd, Everton 4th. Rog's entire Top 8 can be found here On the same pod, Rog predicted Newcastle at 18th, Swansea at 19th and Brighton & Hove Albion. Davo agreed as to Swansea and Brighton but had Watford in the bottom three. Rog also reiterated that he was a serious chess player as a kid and that Garry Kasparov was his hero. This pod also discussed the MIB's love of the movie "Dunkirk" (Rog was apparently not pleased with Davo, who had seen it before him, prepared him for the movie). Davo also did a Winston Churchill impression, saying the word "Nazi" (at app. 1:29 mark). Rog believed that it was actually Arlo White instead of Tom Hardy in the movie

    On the 5/16/17 pod decried the demise of the @MenInBlazers twitter account for its treatment of Chelsea FC and blamed it on Rog's "darkness speaking." He also instructed Rog on how to properly fake a genuine apology.
    On the 5/22/17 pod (at Rog's urging) discussed the recent revelation that the King of the Netherlands (King Willem-Alexander) sometimes pilots KLM flights. Davo was perplexed as to why Rog was fascinated by the story. Rog stated that he loved the story because it shows how mundane the King's fantasy life was. Davo used the story to "subtly" pitch KLM to sponsor the Men In Blazers. Davo then drew distinctions between King Arthur and Dutch royalty. Apologies were subsequently issued by Rog to all Dutch listeners and by Davo to short-haul airline pilots for the entire discussion. Davo's disclosed that his secret double life would be as a fishing guide. Discussed what the NBC team does over summer break and speculated that Kyle Martino barbecues quite a lot, makes a few key dishes (that are unexpected and light) and possesses numerous Bermuda shorts (where one leg is pink and the other a different color) shows off his tattoo, works on his lats and is likely good at hacky-sack and in a drum circle. Stated that he does not like Schadenfreude.

    EA sports event.event.Discussed the dangers bald men face in Mozambique due to the believe that bald heads apparently contain gold.
    On the 8/9/17 pod discussed with Rog the fact that actress Rooney Mara had never eaten pie until age 31. Davo stated that the line "It definitely wasn’t the ideal situation for a first-time pie eater" was the greatest ending line to a story ever (NY Post article here). Rog later lamented his absence of a visit to Japan, Davo responded that Rog seems to love the Axis Powers (and by implication should visit soon). Davo later commented that he could not think of something that would be more unbearable than Rog playing the banjo.
    On the 8/22/17 pod reminded Rog that he did get the crowd at a recent MIB Live show at the British Embassy in Washington DC to chant "U-S-A! U-S-A!" and that it made the British ambassador uncomfortable. Described the Premier League as British soft power in world affairs. Discussed the merits of slightly chubby men wearing dark color, V-neck sweaters and that Spurs Manager Mauricio Pochettino looks gorgeous in them. Rog then referenced his other podcast "Tummy Time" and that he favors a cardigan himself. Stated that he likes gas station sushi.

    On the 8/22/17 pod Rog stated that he just was not that into the recent solar eclipse. Davo then described his views on the eclipse and how it made him feel so small which he did not like. As a result, Rog pronounced Davo an eclipse thinking globalist as opposed to an eclipse thinking parochialist. Rog then stated that watching other people enjoy themselves watching something was as close as he would ever be to being an Arsenal fan.

    On the 8/30/17 pod discussed what would have been his Mum's 90th birthday. His father stayed with him for 8 days as did app. 18 members of his family. For the 11th year in a row, Grandfather Davo called Davo's daughter, Ingrid "Greta" and she just laughs it off. Discussed the app. 14 hours that they spent in Las Vegas together and Davo stated that Las Vegas is certainly out of Rog's element. Rog stated that "Vegas Davo" is full on Ocean's Eleven Pesco (see above re: Pesco) Davo recommends going "in character" to Vegas (much like going in character to strip bars and weddings with people you do not like). Rog said Vegas is too "sensorarily overloading" the featured Raven discussed how one imagines the life of Davo.
    On the 9/12/17 pod Davo referenced his Davo answer of not wanting to think things too deeply ("that's the Davo answer") which then lead to a discussion of their other podcast "Keeping it Pesco" where Davo claimed that "not even Jason Kennedy listens to it" (app 9:50 mark) Rog claims he listens to it in the AM when he meditates in preparation for a bowel movement.

    Bennett children. Stated that oil painting trolling is the best kind of trolling. Rog discussed that the oldest thing in Orlando was a Cheescake Factory that had opened in the early 1990s. Was confused as to what came first, The Golf Channel or Golf Channel Drive. Expressed his concern over getting pregnant at an upcoming MIB road trip to Las Vegas. Referenced their own podcast "This Day in Ponce De Leon" as he was referenced twice in the first 15mins. Equated Spurs relationship with Wembley Stadium like his with his mother-in-law's house.
    on the 8/30/17 pod disclosed that he was heading back to Liverpool to celebrate his father, Judge Ivor Bennett's 80th birthday. Rog then discussed how he realized at age 13 that there are two types of men in the world "Pub guys" and "Club guys." The former are most comfrotable in smaller groups and happiness is just a great jukebox. The latter is never happier than when they are raging against the chaos of a fraternity party. Rog stated he was a Pub guy and Davo was a club guy. Davo asked to be both.
    on the 9/12/17 pod discussed his father Judge Iver becoming angrier and angrier at his 80th birthday dinner due to poor service. Leading Rog to try and calm him down. Rog was met with "I am who I am! and I can't change who I am Roger!" that lead Davo to call that the greatest lyric never written in a pop song -- "I am who I am! and I can't change who I am Roger!" that lead to a discussion of whether people can change as they get older.
