RISE TO OFFEND

A podcast about the history of individuals that offended society and in the process changed it.
Each week we examine one figure who truly offended, some for the positive and some for the negative, and how history sees them today.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone Part 2 of 3

After the release of South Park Trey Parker and Matt Stone had become successful financially and found an audience, but their desire for longevity could only come through critical acclaim something that has alluded them through their early projects. Convincing the world that South Park was more than just a foul mouthed cartoon as initial critics report would be a seemingly impossible task. However by taking control and fighting against a major studio the duo would risk everything on an idea that nobody believed in besides them and change the course of their legacy, and how the world saw four little boys from a sleepy mountain town in Colorado.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone Part 1 of 3

Every comedic journey is rooted in conviction but for mainstream success most have to succumb to compromise, few achieve success without it. Becoming mainstream icons like Trey Parker and Matt Stone did without compromise is rare, the duo has done it all from stage, big screen, video games, and small screen. Conquering without compromise and motivated by creating ideas that should not work or be invested in. The origin of the duo started in Colorado and the non stop work ethic and goal of making each other laugh would be the groundwork and lead a cultural change in modern day comedy. Part 1 of 3


Colin Kapernick

The drive behind a great athlete can change and refocus and that defines the career of Colin Kaepernick thus far, after a glorious college run at the University of Nevada-Reno defeating the unstoppable Boise State a spotlight was placed on him. Big enough for 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh to believe in him and draft him for the San Francisco 49ers, every opportunity given to him he embraced and excelled, but the path of sports and the desire for a Super Bowl Championship would seem less important as his career continued and take a back seat after one press conference after a preseason game in 2016, and change the course of his future.

The Cleveland Browns

Every sports team has a story full of ups and downs… not the Cleveland Browns of the NFL, a story full of heartbreaking lows, including have the team taken to another city in 1996, parades for losing every game in a season, having 30 different quarterbacks play in less than 20 years, and lose games in the most inventive ways professional football has ever seen, despite all this there’s no fanbase more devoted to pain and sadness with hope that never fades.
