Kevin Goldstein and his guests talk about baseball . . . . and other stuff.
Chin Music, Episode 8: Embarrassing and Semi-Disgusting
On this episode, I’m joined by the eminently intelligent and charming Steven Goldman, who serves as my co-host for the week. We start with some hot takes on hot starts and socially gross restaurants. From there, we are joined by special guest Bradford William Davis of the New York Daily News to discuss the complicated […]
Chin Music, Episode 7: He Had That Haircut In The Third Grade
Things are a little different this week, as we present a special 2021 season preview edition of the podcast.

Then it’s more creative talk as we discuss how we view our audiences, the current […]

Chin Music, Episode 3: I’ve Studiously Avoided Ska
It’s another episode, whether you like it or not. This week’s originally scheduled co-host was struck by COVID-19 (wear a mask, folks!), so filling in is Craig Calcaterra. We talk about the alternate sites, spring training games as background noise, Twitter baseball highlights and more. Later, we are joined by musician/recording engineer Steve Albini, who […]
