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.
After some how-do-you-do introductions, a chat with Clint Domingue on Louisiana’s 103.7 The Game (08:47) on how exciting this 2020 MLB season could be. Then, more baseball talk on Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio (24:46) with a preview of the shortened, 60-game campaign. Thank you for listening!
Coming back at you with a “regular” episode very soon!
Baseball and football on this edition of The Podcass, courtesy of our appearances on Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio.
First, a look at some early storylines like top free agents and Hall of Fame balloting as MLB slides into the offseason (02:50). Then it’s on to the NFL and Week 10 headlines, most of which concerned off-the-field news like quarterbacks and franchises possibly moving (20:57).
Misery, then joy at the movies on the latest Podcass!
It’s good for the soul to let out a good rant once in a while, and my experience buying advance movie tickets online recently provided just such an opportunity (0:36). Then, we review Bruce Springsteen’s new concert film, Western Stars (09:57). And our WISE Sports Radio segment from Monday recaps the drastic turn in the World Series with the Houston Astros taking control (19:14).
The week got away from us, schedule-wise, so it’s kind of a mini-Podcass and posting a day later than intended.
We’re all sports this time around with our NFL segment from WISE Sports Radio (06:45). We discuss the possibility that this is Tom Brady’s last season, Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh shooting down speculation that he’ll return to the NFL, whether or not the Carolina Panthers could trade Cam Newton, and other Week 8 storylines to watch.
More sports than expected on the latest Podcass with Canadian friends and cancellations creating more time to talk baseball in anticipation of the World Series beginning.
But we do break up the baseball talk with zombies, more specifically a review of Zombieland: Double Tap (11:31). I feel like I’ve often been a zombie during October staying up late to watch these games, then getting up early to work (and working out before that). As mentioned, we preview the World Series with Edmonton’s TSN 1260 (03:21) and Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio (18:58). Then we close out with a chat on Baseball America’s report of a proposal to eliminate 42 minor league teams (28:00).
We reviewed Jokeron the last Podcass, but the movie set an October box office in finishing No. 1 at the box office over the weekend. And there are soooo many reactions and think-pieces to it that we felt the need to talk some more about it.
After the Joker talk (01:10), we have some baseball talk from WISE Sports Radio (11:42), including the Chicago Cubs’ managerial search. Then the show wraps up with thoughts on what’s happened to Sports Illustrated (25:20).
This is the week when we get The Podcass on the schedule I’ve intended. Hopefully, we’ll have shows every Tuesday and Friday from here on out.
First, we get a little geeky, talking about Sony and Marvel realizing they’re better together with Spider-Man (03:06). Then, how about those Detroit Lions, hanging with the Kansas City Chiefs and almost beating them (07:45)? We also review Renee Zellweger in Judy (13:44) before jumping into my radio segments. I appeared on Edmonton’s TSN 1260 to preview the MLB postseason (18:27) and dug into the Cubs-Joe Maddon split and the Angels firing manager Brad Ausmus on Asheville’s WISE Sports Radio (26:36).
Folks, we might be back on schedule. (Well, almost. I’d like The Podcass to post on Tuesdays and Fridays. We’re almost there.)
We break out of “podfade,” recapping our summer absence (3:31), the shutdown of the Amusement Park Podcast (6:55), and a brief fling with an NFL writing gig (15:25). Also, my radio baseball segment (21:00), catching up on what we would’ve talked about over the past four months (30:32), and a handful of sad goodbyes (32:40). Thank you for listening!
