Podcass Sporto: Play ball? Or will COVID-19 call baseball out?
Turning the lights back on and brushing away the cobwebs! The Podcass returns with a “Sporto” edition of sports radio clips focused on the return of baseball.

Relaunching from quarantine! With proper social distancing!
And we're back! Yes, The Podcass has returned after an ashamedly long hiatus. No, we didn't just decide to podcast while sheltering at home from COVID-19. We've done this before! Really. What have we been doing in quarantine (2:03)? How closely has the coronavirus crisis hit (14:15)? And is baseball's plan for a season completely wacked (27:33)?
