Baseball and more!

Come for the baseball, stay for the honest and true social commentary and discussion of real humanity that comes through from the host. They're a great human that understands baseball, the greater world, and how the two interact

Loved the Live show

I just finished listening to the live episode and i have to say its one of my favorite episodes. I started listening at the beginning of this season and i’ve really liked all the eps but i liked the different perspectives and the banter. Would love to hear more like that if possible. I know scheduling can be hard. Just wanted to say that i was so hype to find this podcast with a non-male person talking a out baseball. As a women whos loved baseball for many years it can often be a little hard to find other women or non binary people who are also interested so that makes me really happy as well!
