    3 Strikes, You're Out #34: Lovin' That Dirty Water with Alex Reimer

    3 Strikes, You're Out #34: Lovin' That Dirty Water with Alex Reimer

    This week's episode is so Boston, I'm pretty sure it counts as an Affleck. Outsports Deputy Managing Editor Alex Reimer (The Sports Kiki podcast) joins me to talk all things Red Sox and like always with that team, there's plenty of drama. Mookie Betts is gone, everybody hates the owners, and Fenway Park got bizarrely ranked #21 on a "Best Ballparks in MLB" survey. Alex also compares all four of the Red Sox' 21st century World Championships, a condition the rest of us know as "being from Boston."
    Later, we discuss Alex's piece about using sports minutiae as a kid to avoid thinking about his sexuality and how it much it hit home with me. Dear listener, I FEEL SEEN. Check out his excellent reflection here.

    Five Rings To Rule Them All, Episode 33 - Public health expert Stephanie Zaza

    Five Rings To Rule Them All, Episode 33 - Public health expert Stephanie Zaza

    When we last had public health expert Stephanie Zaza, from the American College of Preventive Medicine, on the podcast in March, she laid out what the next three to four months of the pandemic would look like. She was spot-on. We talk with her again about what to expect for the next year or so, including businesses shutting down and opening up, the chances of a vaccine and whether intentionally trying to build "herd immunity" is a good idea. Plus, she lays out what has to happen to see high school and college football, as well as other sports, played this fall. And she gives us the one thing we need to see if the 2020 Summer Olympics are going to be held in 2021.

    3 Strikes, You're Out #33: 25 Minutes About 17 Ballparks

    3 Strikes, You're Out #33: 25 Minutes About 17 Ballparks

    Ever since my first baseball roadtrip to Cincinnati in 1988, I've set a goal of seeing a game in every major league ballpark. Some people are born great, some have greatness thrust upon them, I drive 500 miles to see the damn Pirates.
    So far, I've been to 34 ballparks (21 current ones) and in this episode, I'm flying solo to give you my quick impressions about half of them. It will not shock you to learn that Pittsburgh and San Francisco completely live up to the hype but you know what parks are also sublime? Kansas City and San Diego! Also: learn about the first place I ever went to a Pride Night! Spoiler alert: I had to leave the country to do so...

    Hello, Lovelies! Don't worry if you feel the ground trembling under you this week because we have a kaiju on the show this week. A Big Bad Kaiju to be precise. Veteran wrestler O'Shay Edwards came out as bisexual during Pride month and he stops by to tell Brian Bell about what led him to announcing his truth openly for the first time. Plus Ahmed Johnson's role in his wrestling origins and why Ring of Honor is where he ultimately wants ply his trade. Stay ready.

Fun, informative and heartfelt

Interviews with interesting sports related individuals who also happen to be part of the LGBTQ+ community. Fun to hear the behind the scenes stories of their lives and to truly show we are all the same.
