The YaJagoff! Podcast - All about Pittsburgh


All about the cool stuff going on in Pittsburgh! There are a lot of podcasts, or PAWDcasts as you might say in Pittsburghese, but none this focused on what’s happening in Pittsburgh. Co-hosts John Chamberlin and Rachael Rennebeck talk with guests about food, entertainment, current events and, of course, Jagoffs! This weekly podcast is based on the Pittsburgh humor blog, YaJagoff.com.

May 29, 2018

Summary: Our podcast made an impression on some judges in Detroit as we were finalists in the mother of all journalist comps—the Golden Quills. Didn’t win but scored an interview with Lexi Belfulfine, founder of the Incline, and Trib Total Media mastermind Bobby Cherry. Plus we amp up for our charitable porch tour and collect items for Zachary’s Mission Zack Packs while we listen to Mall at Robinson neighbor’s sales pitches.  

Episode Music: Pittsburgh Band, Shin Guard, “Flubline” from their EP “Five Songs.” Follow and download their music!


02:00 Opening.. oh.. we have a fake cook out going on.  And, J&D Waterproofing is our sponsor again this year for the Summer Porch Tour but… this year we are going to build Zack Packs for Zachary’s Mission at each stop!
