Came for Bob Kendrick, can’t leave! :)

Awesome variety of guests and lesser-known (to me, at least) baseball stories. I’m working through the many episodes with women from the AAGPBL; they’re delightful and inspiring. Thanks for bringing us these stories!

Really enjoyed the episode with Manuel Oliver! 💛 Viva Guac forever

Yeah, him... you know, him ,

The fun, hidden side of baseball

Shawn is great. Lou is goofy. This isn't a dry "shill your latest book/project" interview show and it's not "morning show banter".

They get a wide variety of guest from the heart and the periphery of baseball and get great alternative takes out of pretty much every guest. My favorite guests have been the people more on the fringe as the HoF guys tend to be so well rehearsed and don't like to go off script. Jeff Pearlman is a must listen and jump on any episode with Phil Hecken and Todd Radom. Jeff Katz is my favorite guest.
