Give That Fan a Podcast Episode 7 - Nate Thompson
University of Arkansas Hitting Coach Nate Thompson joins me on the first of three December episodes centered around recent Orioles draft picks. Thompson coached Orioles 2020 first round draft pick and #3 overall prospect, Heston Kjerstad, from 2018-2020. We chat about what O's fans can expect from Kjerstad and why he has had such a successful amateur career, preceded by some of my own thoughts on recent Orioles transactions.
Give that Fan a Podcast Ep 6 - Eric Arditti
Barstool Sports' Eric Arditti joins this week's podcast to talk Trey Mancini, Adley Rutschman, Mo Gaba, and much more. If you're not into snakes or Breaking Bad, the O's chatter begins around the 16-minute mark. We both love Mike Elias and Jim Palmer, and we're going to walk from Baltimore to Nashville if the Orioles move there.
Give That Fan a Podcast Ep 5 - Jake Mintz
The Orioles fan half of Cespedes Family BBQ, Jake Mintz, joins me in the fifth episode of the show. We each provide a list of our top 20 favorite O's prospect names in the system, but first, we dive into why it's disappointing that the Winter Meetings were cancelled as an in-person event as well as the ongoing reconfiguration of the minor leagues. Reliving some of our favorite Orioles memories is always fun, too.
Give That Fan a Podcast Ep 4 - Jason La Canfora
CBS Sports NFL Insider and co-host of Inside Access on 105.7 The Fan, Jason La Canfora, joins me for the fourth episode of the podcast. We dive into the reasons behind switching team allegiances, the importance of Minor League Baseball, and the identity of the Orioles moving forward. Spoiler alert: Jason doesn't care if you don't think he's a true O's fan.
Give That Fan a Podcast Episode 3: Olivia Witherite
In Episode 03, I’m joined by Olivia Witherite, who spent 8 years working in different social media and marketing roles at MASN until she moved on to a job with The Athletic in 2019. We re-lived Clinchmas 2014 and discussed working in social media and being a woman in sports. You won’t want to miss Olivia’s story about talking on the phone with Jim Palmer and my story about accidentally stealing an AL East Champion t-shirt.
Give that Fan a Podcast Episode 2: About Me
In this episode, I fly solo and talk about myself for 45 minutes. What good is a podcast if you can't get to know the host a little bit? I take you through my life as a baseball fan and an Orioles fan, sharing some experiences that have shaped me into who I am. I cover everything from 8-month-old Ryan watching Cal Ripken break Lou Gehrig's record to 24-year-old Ryan moving across the country to pursue a career in baseball scouting.
