MrJPink ,

I downloaded the Apple Podcast App to write this review.

Long time listener here and I couldn’t imagine my Cubs fandom without Son Ranto! And the best part are the host act the same way in real life, they have built a community of degenerates with hearts of gold, and the show is more fun to listen as the Cubs wheels fall off. So crack open a cold one and after a few listens joins us at the left field well in Wrigley. SBUCGO!!!

Are you a true Cubs fan? Not if you don't listen to this.

I stumbled across this NSFW gem of a podcast after meeting the brilliant Danny Rockett at a Cubs camp out in western IL. The show summarizes what it has been like to be a Cubs fan for 30+ years. Much ranting, foul language, yet I enjoy this podcast and the people I've met because of it. You'll probably need to use headphones f you have kids, but I love the non-Pollyanna views of The Cubs and their fans. The actual shows are three friends having a conversation, and eventually they get around to talking about baseball and the Cubs. I'm old enough to be their father, but if my kids ever did a podcast, I'd want it to be like this. Give it a listen - you'll be hooked.

Recent update: with the addition of Crawly, the show has gained serious baseball stats cred, and Michael has stepped up his already strong game with great analysis and epic rants. A strength of the show is how they interact with their fans for comedy gold via Facebook and Twitter. Danny continues to be a creative genius that makes even slow baseball news weeks entertaining as well.

Soon to be the longest running Cubs podcast of all time.
