VDD Radio | Playoff Bar Talk

One of the greatest things about sports is that it gives people something to talk about. Whether it is a stranger you are sitting next to on the Green Line or a buddy you’ve known since you were kids, football is a lot of fun to talk about.

Today Zach sits down with one of his buddies, Josh Ludwig, to have the football conversations that they’ve had dozens of times before. They talk about the upcoming playoff game with Seattle, they discuss their longstanding Waynes vs. Peters debate, and they try to pick the playoff games (based mostly on gut instinct).

Mainly, it was just a fun football chat over a couple of poorly mixed cocktails.

WARNING: A couple crafty curse words slipped out during this episode. Sorry.

VDD Radio | Sitdown with Seahawks Blogger Rob Staton

As the Seahawks look to embark on their perilous journey to the mystical frozen city of St. Paul, one Seahawk fan was brave enough to put his WiFi connection to the test and join the Vikings Digital Diaries podcast. Rob Staton of the BBC and the Seahawks Draft Blog joined Zach all the way from the UK to spill the beans on how the Vikings can beat his beloved Seachickens and their Pirate-Horse of a coach. After this interview, one might say that there are some large men who are quite “Sleepless in Seattle”

Skolt, Yinka, and Zach were joined in person by Ben Utecht, Rhys Lloyd, and Ben Williams and over FaceTime by Chris Kluwe, Doug Chapman, and Harold Marrow. The file was kind of big so it is split up into two parts. Enjoy!

VDD Radio | Them Chiefs Is Comin’ To Town

Hello Vikings Fans! In preparation for this weekend’s tilt with the Kansas City Chefs (see what I did there?) we had a member of the Kingdom of Arrowhead on to talk a little pigskin. That’s right, Stephanie Roets of Chief’s 360 tiptoed into enemy territory and revealed the secret to beating this Chief’s team. Paging Mike Zimmer, I’ve got some info for ya…..

VDD Radio | Dwayne Rudd Interview

Linebacker goodness! Zach chats with former Viking linebacker Dwayne Rudd. They talk ’98 Vikes, linebackery, and the toughest offense that he’s ever faced. It’s everything you’d hope it would be.

VDD Radio | Reaction to Vikings Home Opener

We got a win! And boy does it feels good….

VDD Radio | Mitch Berger Interview

Zach got to sit down with former Minnesota Vikings Punter/Kick-Off Specialist Mitch Berger.

Mitch was awesome. We talked about candy bars, kicking, being a Super Bowl champion, and just had an all around great chat.

This podcast was marred by tragedy however. For some reason, my computer stopped recording after roughly 24 minutes of the 32 minutes that I spoke to Mitch. So there is some great stuff that just didn’t get recorded. Much like our beloved Minnesota Vikings in last week’s game against San Francisco, my computer didn’t come ready to play.

So there is some great stuff that looks like it will be just between me and Mitch. Oh well. You missed him talking about what it is like to win a Super Bowl, how cool it was to do that for the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team his dad had grown up loving. He told the heartwarming story of pushing past security guards on his way into the stand to embrace his father who was suffering from Alzheimers. Truly heart warming.
