Polk and Kush

An absurd look at sports and life in New Orleans. This weekly podcast featuring comedian Andrew Polk and longtime local columnist Scott Kushner covers New Orleans teams with a bend away from stats and boring analysis. Instead they focus on the practical, entertaining side of the Saints, Pelicans, UNO, Tulane, and more.

The Saints are a bad football team. Pelicans fans want to see something before locking in. The Saltwater is gone but the SuperFog has come for us.

A Little Positivity!

The Saints can't hurt us any more. We're happy to see Zion on the court regardless of if he's mad at everyone or not. Our airport finally has a road.Sponsored by The Garden Gates Landscape Company, Crescent Canna and Draftkings (promo code POLKANDKUSH)

It's one of the spookiest days of the year and we're here with all the haunts and chills you'd expect. Are the Saints problems solved? The Pelicans are in the pre-season but boy is it nice to see Zion back on the floor. Libraries are some of the last good places. Political commercials on TV are laughable, and who's got our vote for Speaker of the House?Sponsors:Crescent CannaThe Garden Gates Landscape CompanyDraftkings (Promo code POLKANDKUSH)

Listen, the Saints stink and Derek Carr and/or Pete Carmichael aren't going to fix things until the Dennis Allen problem is resolved. The Pelicans are back and don't worry, the vibes at camp are good, and the saltwater may not yet consume us all.Sponsored by:

The Boy Who Cried Six Weeks

The injury woes have befallen the 2-1 Saints as they face division rival Tampa Bay with a questionable Derek Carr at QB and a highly dubious coaching staff behind him. What's that, Pelicans injuries? We haven't even gotten to the pre-season and we've got 3 Pels rotational players out for whatever constitutes an amount of time. The salt water is coming for us!

Headless Halloween Haunts

Thursday Sep 21, 2023

The New Orleans Saints are 2-0 behind a sturdy defense and slow to start offense. Kush gives a schedule breakdown (hint: they're only playing bad teams for a while), LaToya flies back to France to close her tab, and there's a wild Halloween display in Bucktown.Sponsored by The Garden Gates Landscape CompanySponsored by Draftkings, use promocode POLKANDKUSH

The Saints win their season opener and have some kinks to work out. Brandon Ingram isn't signing an extension but don't panic. LaToya uses therapy words to let everyone else know how wrong they are. Kush goes on a few rants. Theme song by Mike Wiebe.

What’s Your Spirit Animal?

Wednesday Aug 23, 2023

Wednesday Aug 23, 2023

It's almost football season and we're ready to gamble on a few overpriced hot dogs at the Superdome while Jameis Winston and Derek Carr tell us about their spirit animal (hint, it's more spiritual than animal). Would Kush bribe a cop? Would New Orleans boot your car on the hottest day in recorded history? Will you read this description? All this and much more on an all new Polk and Kush.

Alvin Kamara gets a 3 game suspension to start the season, the Saints keep finding former pro-bowlers under rocks and giving them one years, Brandon Ingram praises New Orleans and Griff, and the Governor race is the ultimate clown show, with self-pleasuring oafs, bullet proof vest wearing cajuns, and copyright infringement, plus some locals try to stop the one business that wants to come here.
