Len and JD are a great duo and excellent interviewers

It’s great to hear Len and JD even though baseball hasn’t returned, and I appreciate that the interviewees on the show provide a welcome mix of voices. The celebrity Cubs fans offer a perspective that is entertaining but also connects with memories of their own fandom. The Cubs players and legends provide the perspective on the field (as well as behind the scenes of baseball). Len and JD know when to provide a little extra banter and when to step back to let the guests’ voices shine. This is a welcome addition not just because we are currently missing baseball but also because it’s unlike the other Cubs podcasts in my rotation.

Love hearing Len and JD’s voices. Brings me so much joy! I miss baseball so much and this really helps. Thanks for doing this.

Interested

But I can barely hear the conversation in my air pods. Is there a way to turn up your column a little?
