This podcast is everything

Honestly I didn't know how good podcasts could be until a friend recommended Three Swings. Rhea Butcher is wonderful partly because they are so informed, thoughtful and open-hearted, but also because I had never heard anyone who I identified with talk about baseball, ever. Thanks to Forever Dog and the sponsors for their part in making Three Swings possible. Three Swings is the best.

Zen and the Art of Loving Baseball

Never thought I’d listen to a baseball podcast because I don’t know diddly-squat about sports. But for me, Three Swings is about life. Rhea brings awareness to detrimental cultural biases that exist both on the field and off, while maintaining their love of the game. Addressing these tough and divisive topics with lovingkindness is the All-American sport I’ve been waiting for.

I liked it, so I Liked It.

As someone who was never really into sports (still not, truth be told) I've always found it interesting to hear people's actual opinions about sports when they're legitimately excited about or fans of the sport more than just a team. Add to that that it's Rhea Butcher & they get guests sometimes like Paul F Tompkins, Greg Proops, & people within the sports world of baseball (men's & women's baseball), every episode is an interesting meditation on life & its many facets. And Rhea's consternation with Fantasy Baseball stress is an enjoyable part of the process.
