And that is the general idea of the Shutdown Fullcast; College Football through the acerbic, deeply strange lens of it's four hosts, who also are the principal writers and editors at then-''Every Day Should Be Saturday'' and now ''Banner Society''. The Fullcast has two installments throughout the college football season; an hour and a half preview of the week ahead on Wednesdays and which games the hosts are personally interested in, and a shorter show on Sundays reacting to what happened in college football that week, with a special "40 podcasts for 40 bowl games" series right at the end of the season, where the group gives it's general opinion of every game in bowl season...but only as much as they feel they deserve. In late 2018/2019, they also began doing live shows in select places throughout the country, usually the heart of a specific College Football conference, and as such they tend to focus in on the conference as a whole during these shows.
