Sounds of the Game
Rhythm & Light / Voice of the City
Rhythm & Light and Voice of the City present, “Sounds of the Game,” a mockumentary radio podcast of Midwest high-school football games featuring everyone’s favorite small town darlings: Fentchall Stalkers football team (named after stalking wheat, not creepy degenerate men). The Stalkers have fallen on hard times, and are so terrible that the two broadcasters, Jeff Dansdorf and Bill Buxom, are left to arguing with each other over their personal lives, social issues, and other wayward topics—these two are stuck in another era. All the while, edgy and unique parodies of national and local radio commercials are peppered throughout these “disastrous” local radio programs. A hilarious look at how American football has become the new “opiate of the people,” where everyone’s hopes and dreams seem to hinge on their team winning, and an exploration of the real reasons conservative America struggles with the social issues of the day. Several key topics Jeff and Bill grapple with in the first season include: Women’s equality, hazing, unhealthy food consumption, LGBTQ rights, white nationalism, Native-American objections to offensive team names (e.g. Washington Redskins), kneeling at football games as part of peaceful protest, and so much more.
