I’ve really enjoyed your recent guests - the beat reporters covering the team. It’s great to know a bit about the guys behind the stories. I would love to see you all have Grant McAuley and David O’Brien on too. Keep up the great work - listening to the podcast is one of the highlights of my week!

I like the old-school guests the best!

As one of the many TBS kids that grew up watching them on TV- I enjoy listening to the interviews with the old-time Braves the best! It’s fun to hear the variety of guests that they have on the shows! My only critique would be that the questions for the guests are way to long and drawn out- just ask the question and get out of the way and let the guests talk more!

Behind the Braves

Love the interviews with players and staff. Insightful information for fans and anyone interested in potentially filling those roles with an organization. No bias. Just insight.
