Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
The Knee Jerks began as a popular weekly chat feature between a pair of long running Detroit sports blogs, The Wayne Fontes Experience and GregEno.com. The web chat morphed into an every Monday night podcast. Your hosts are layabout blogger Big Al Beaton of TWFE, aka Mr. Blogger, and prolific freelance writer Greg Eno, aka Mr. Journalist. We cover the gamut of the sports landscape, but with a definite Detroit slant and always with a Detroit attitude.
