I don't even like baseball. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you want the inside baseball political stories without the disingenuous polish and bias this is the podcast you're looking for. JRY calls balls and strikes better than most and calls himself out when he gets it wrong.

The best

Justin embodies the “guy selling drugs in the parking lot of the political circus”. Borrow liberally from his opinions and spread the word about the best independent politics podcast out there.
