A perfect podcast

As a Yankees fan, I absolutely love this podcast. There are so many podcasts that are either minor league or all about just spewing numbers. This podcast, however, is a major league production combined with major league analysis that’s easy to consume and listen to. The hosts are great too, by the way … great chemistry.

Great Yankees content, great chemistry

As a Yankees fan since my youth in the 1970s, and now living out of town, I recently discovered this podcast, and boy, I’m glad I did. Flip and Kevin are knowledgeable and entertaining. They provide new insights on Yankees history and their news and analysis keeps me up-to-date even though I am no longer immersed in NYC tabloids and sports radio. Thank you!
