Oh so great

This podcast was an absolutely great way to relive the best World Series ever played! Thank you! I just finished the last episode and could start it over and listen to it all over again!

So Glad I Checked This Out

When I heard the first ad for this podcast, I worried about celebrity fan interviews and whether it would be hosted by outsiders, but knowing that Matt Spiegel and Roy Wood, Jr. are obviously true fans and that the guests weren’t going to be random but diehard Cubs fans made me want to try it out, and I cannot wait for the next episode.

Go Cubbies

A must for any Cubs fan. Any chance to relive 2016 is ok with me. Great guests even though they aren’t real time interviews, just a bunch of the guests’ recorded responses to questions submitted by the host. Unfortunate way to do it since there is zero interaction between the guest and hosts.
Oh, and I wish everyone would stop saying Kris Bryant was smiling on the last play. He himself said it’s just a weird face he tends to make all the time. Why would he even be smiling? He’s not 12.
