The Worst To First Podcast is recorded live at Gunselman’s Tavern. We like to go to the bar, have a few drinks and talk about whatever it is that people talk about when going to a bar to have a few drinks. The difference is that we amplify the conversation, record it, then publish it on the internet so the entire world has a chance to hear what we were talking about. It’s called “casting a pod”.
The name “Worst To First” dropped before Browns training camp started for the 2018 season. John Dorsey and Baker Mayfield gave us hope like we haven’t had since The Bernie Kosar Era. Our quote, “The Cleveland Browns have a good chance to win the AFC North pending a series of unfortunate circumstances for the rest of the division” was the mission statement on episode 1. Well, it didn’t happen but it came as close as a few bad calls by the ref’s, Hue Jackson staying a little too long, Tyrod play a few too many snaps... Just maybe, if Hue Jackson got fired sooner, the window was open because: Pittsburgh imploded, we beat the Ratbirds twice (one didn’t count but it was a game changing bad call so we still won because it made Pittsburgh miss the playoffs) and The Bengals are now playing the our previous role as “irrelevant”. If ifs and buts were coconuts,..we'd all have lots of piña coladas. 2019 AFC Champs. 2020 Superbowl.
Ray Carr is our host. David Grace, one of the owners of Gunselman’s provides an endless stream of color commentary. During Browns season, we are joined by veteran broadcasters, Carmen Angelo (WTAM 1100) and Dan Mennigan (92.3 The Fan) which elevates the sports talk to another dimension.
Cleveland wasn’t built in a day and the name still fits because this city has rebounded back from bankruptcy, a burning river and being known for car bombings. It’s become a nice place to live but let’s not tell too many people or the highways will get too busy and everything will be more expensive.

Worst To First
A new podcast starting September 9th broadcast live from Gunselman’s Tavern.
The podcast will feature two veteran broadcast professionals – Carmen Angelo (The Executive Producer for the Mike Trivasanno Show) and Ray Carr (The Cleveland Renaissance man and long time radio host) along with a cavalcade of local celebrity to chew the fat with these two talk show emcees.
Worst To First (or WTF for short) starts with the premise that The Cleveland Browns could go from the worst team in the AFC North to the Best team in the AFC North pending a series of unfortunate events for the rest of the division (untimely key injuries, scandal, misconduct or just shear magic) along with the elevated play of the most talented group of Brownies (on paper) since the 11-5 Kardiac Kids of 1980.
The show will air 11AM-1PM every Sunday and starting during the first regular season Browns game against the dreaded Steelers.
UPDATE: on August 13, 2018, The Great Lakes Brewing Company has agreed to be the title sponsor for Worst To First. There will be weekly GLBC giveaways and every Great Lakes Brewing Company draft beer you buy at Gunselman’s on any given Sunday during The NFL Season, you will be given a raffle ticket and a chance to win the Grand Prize of Dinner for 4 and a private brewery tour at Great Lakes Brewing Company.
