Wonderful Podcast of All Things Baseball

If you are seeking a podcast that is all things baseball then this is the podcast for you. Rob Neyer does a fantastic job interviewing the wide variety of guests the show has on. I’ve learned a great deal from Rob and his guests who have all contributed substantially in various different ways to the game of baseball. I’ve never given a review to a podcast but Rob and his team certainly deserve a round of applause for the content they provide.

Best baseball podcast out there!

This is the first podcast review I have ever written but I couldn’t resist. I have listened to all 57 episodes, and counting, and Rob Neyer is just a joy to listen to. He’s obviously knowledgeable about baseball, and he does a great job interviewing his fascinating guests. He is a likable, regular guy and his personality shows through every episode. Rob obviously prepares well for every guest, and it shows; the hour flies by every week. Fortunately, he has yet to take a week off since the podcast began at the start of the 2019 season. SABR, please keep Rob on this podcast forever!
