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.

Vegas Vacation

Friday Dec 08, 2023

Friday Dec 08, 2023

The Pels get absolutely demolished in Vegas. The Saints continue to do that every Sunday and Mickey Loomis doesn't know why you're selling your tickets. There's a winning lottery ticket floating around New Orleans somewhere. All this and much more!

Thursday Nov 30, 2023

Polk and Kush go see the Pelicans live and in-person as they stomp the Sixers for 42 minutes and Zion has a historic night. Kush has one word for Dennis Allen and Derek Carr, it begins with the L, and ends with Osers. A man leaps off an airplane, and the return of our original segment: THE WORST.

The Monday Morning Edition

Fans love consistency and we continue to give it with an all-new Monday episode featuring Pelicans talk about Ingram and Zion, the relief of a Sunday without hearing from Dennis Allen, and Polk tries to convince everyone he's an unappreciated genius.

We’re Watchable Now!

The Saints have been watchable the last few weeks, the Pelicans need to work on their chemistry, Bally's needs to hang it up, and the weather forecast calls for Murder Fog. Sponsored by The Garden Gates Landscape Company

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!

Tuesday Oct 17, 2023

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)

Thursday Oct 12, 2023

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)

Thursday Oct 05, 2023

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

Thursday Sep 28, 2023

Thursday Sep 28, 2023

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
