Bear Down was started by a group of wayward Chicagoans stuck in the bright desert of Los Angeles. To hide out from the sun, they created a podcast where all their comedian friends could come by and talk all things Chicago and all things football. They have a lot of guests on every week, most of them are fake: Tiger Woods, Brett Favre, (Russian Billionaire) Mikail Prokorov, Virginia McCaskey, (Doug Buffone’s wife) Gina Buffone, Werner Herzog, Patrick Mannelly, Gabe Carimi, Kelsey Grammar, Derek Jeter, Tim Tebow.
The Bear Down performers over the years include: Ron Livingston, Brad Morris, Kevin Dorff, Nick Swardson, Cindy Caponera, Brian Huskey, Garfunkel and Oates, Ike Berenholtz, Matt Besser, and the king of the south end zone Fireman Pete.
The Bear Down Podcast on June 12th will have Hall of Fame NFL Coach Marv Levy, Ex-Bear Anthony "Spice" Adams and Superbowl Champion Bear, Steve ""Mongo"" McMichael.
All talent and shows are scheduled to appear and subject to change.
