After an extensive, socially-distanced search, Denver Stiffs’ editors finally located The Dig podcasters Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley, who have been hiding out at the last Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon (which is actually an AirBnB now). Threats were made, pennies pinched, and, ultimately, the duo agreed to return to civilization for an audio run through playoff podcasting.

The first post-bubble podcast for The Dig features some catching up, a bit of debate about MPJ’s role in the coming rounds, and whether Paul Millsap has been worth his $30m extension. The hosts also share the curious existence of malaphors and their unheralded place in the accidental comedy pantheon.

The Dig is a semi-once-in-a-while podcast by Nick Hertzog and Jeremy Poley that analyzes one Nuggets-related theme per episode. The Blockbuster AirBnB was actually pretty rad, but we’re happy to be back watching the Nuggets get our hopes up.
