The new show is hosted by Buster Olney, a veteran reporter who nevertheless spends more of his time telling us what Stephen Strasburg had for dinner before Jordan Zimmermann’s wedding or asking “Krukie” to tell his favorite spring training stories, ho ho, than talking much baseball.
As always, I'll pipe up for Colt Cabana's Art of Wrestling podcast. STEAGLES can back me up on this.
Heinie Mantush, glad to meet another fan. And I don't understand why you'd sign El Generico and then have him change his gimmick, so it's nice to know WWE isn't going to get in its own way with him. Ole!
Does Jonah Keri still podcast?
A BTF podcast needs to happen.
I've thought about this, actually. Most of us have day jobs that don't involve baseball, so finding the time to do one regularly would be a bit of a challenge, and it's not worth doing if you don't do it often. Wish I'd been able to record some of the debates between Dial and Kevin back in the day.
Baseball Tonight is worse than useless. It's just like every other ESPN roundtable - a bunch of ESPN guys patting each other on the back about how much they know.
NPR has a podcast where a female host made the astute observation that sports roundtables (and political pundit roundtables) = "The View."
This is a bummer if only because the Karbell-led podcast was the only decent podcast on baseball of which I was aware.
BTF pod: Apart from the opportunity to hear what people sound like, what would it offer?
I am surprised there aren't more "The Smartest Man In The World" fans here...seems too perfect a fit....
And if it's possible to identify a niche that is about more than just being "one of the cool kids with a podcast" (which is, essentially, why Olney decided to do Baseball Tonight), then what voices does the site need to make it work?
Everyone needs to listen to Marc Maron's interview with Mel Brooks (on Maron's WTF podcast).
