What’s one of the best (and FREE) ways to tune in and drop out of another mind-numbing work day while on your lunch break, or on the commute to or from home?  Listen to the Burghcast with Herb and Buxy.   All you need is a mental image of Pittsburgh, and it doen’t even have to be accurate, sort of like “Da Bears” sketch on SNL from back in the day, except it’s about Pittsburgh sports teams like the Pens and the Steelers.   Now, I’m definitely no sports fan, much less do I get any Pittsburgh-related sports jokes, but seriously, this shit is hilarious.  Ashley, also not a sports-oriented person, admitted to me that she laughed her ass off on the train one morning to the point where people were giving her crazy looks.  Specifically, she was mostly laughing at a Rambo reference (I think Herb made it) about going down to the ‘crick’ and beating people up who’ve wronged you.

How does one gain access to the Burghcast?  Click here to download it on iTunes, or just search “Burghcast” at the iTunes store and click “Subscribe”, or download individual episodes as you like.   You can also check out their blog (though it hasn’t been updated in a bit, since it’s the offseason for football) here, be their friend on Facebook, and even email Herb and Buxy at

Their past episode (302) gives you an idea. Herb got drunk during the Penguins game, was subsequently belligerent, and Buxy lost his like, eight millionth consecutive “Burghclash”, in which the guys face off on which two Pittsburgh-related things (selected by producer and “resident homosexual” Bernie) are more “Burgh”.
