MTR Podcasts Started With Strange News

About MTR Podcasts

Our podcast network, MTR Podcasts features Mastermind Team’s Robcast, a weekly podcast hosted by the legendary duo, Rob Lee & Dann D. The duo deliver observation on all things weird news, pop culture, and entertainment. Mastermind Team’s Robcast is a podcast aimed in being provocative and at times just silly.


Mastermind Team’s Robcast, MTR for short, started in early 2009. The first episode of the podcast was pretty much creator, Rob Lee, complaining about Albert Haynesworth signing with the ‘Skins.  For those who love or hate Mastermind Team’s Robcast, blame Albert Haynesworth.  Honestly, Rob Lee has always had an interest in radio which, with his love for Smodcast and talk radio – led to him becoming a podcaster.

From 2009 and onward, Rob Lee has had many podcasts and blogs that have come and gone. Mastermind Team’s Robcast was started with the idea of giving a voice to unique observations on pop culture, current events and everyday life.

Robcast Gets Legendary

Rob Lee, ever the visionary, recognized that as we become older people tend to grow apart. He wanted to avoid that at all costs so he thought of recording conversations with his friends weekly. Over the years these weekly conversations became more structured and a true podcast was born.

Dann D. came along as Rob Lee’s full-time cohost in 2011. That interracial hetero-life-mate-marriage, like totally hetero, has made the duo legendary. Dann D. came into the show with a love of comics and soccer. Over the years, Dann’s developed as a performer and storyteller. Dann’s D. Rob’s resident whiteman on all things pale.

MTR Today

Mastermind Team’s Robcast delivers weekly observations on weird news, pop culture, and entertainment.  Additionally, Unofficially Black with Rob Lee and the talented #JustGreg steers away from the weird news. Unofficially Black is a collaborative podcast between two black men who challenge the narrative of the “black experience”.

Additionally, MTR The Network isn’t just podcasts, thought that’s what we love, we also write blogs on food reviews and comics. MTR The Network has a diverse array of interests and talents. We use this site, these podcasts and our blogs as an art form.

MTR Podcasts doesn’t end with Mastermind Team’s Robcast. We’re much more than just your source for the best podcasts in the business. MTR Podcasts has a series of blogs ranging from food reviews like Crown City Cook and reviews on pop culture like An Idiot’s Guide to.

MTR Podcast’s Future

Over the years, MTR Podcasts has changed from a 10 minute podcast about an overpaid NFL lineman to something more substantial. MTR The Network intends to continue and grow into something more which means seeing our pretty faces at live events in and around Baltimore.
