Baseball History Podcast!

Love listening to Marty on the air and on the Pod! I’m positive I wouldn’t be speaking alone if Marty and knbr could produce a podcast consisting of baseball history. Any topic Marty finds interesting or enjoyable, just let him riff!

Not what it used to be

There is a lot of interesting stuff discussed on the show, from baseball history to present-day topics. So I used to listen to every episode but I can’t anymore. Marty is smarter and more interesting than the typical sports interviewer but certain things in this show are just way too repetitive and in many cases long-winded. If Marty did a podcast focused entirely on baseball history, baseball culture, or even developments in the game, without trying to fill a certain amount of air time, it would be pure gold. Pure gold.

Who did the sound engineering/editing on 8-10 Bruce Jenkins + Andy Baggarly talking ball? Yikes. Either re-do or just delete it.

Marty is fantastic

Marty’s knowledge and passion for baseball is inspiring and I lean new things every show.
