Just about anything produced by Pushkin Industries, especially Revisionist History and Against the Rules by Moneyball author Michael Lewis.  Really, is there a better essayist than Malcom Gladwell working these days?

 

I also recommend Rabbit Hole produced by the NY Times.  You'll get some real insight into the power of social media and why America has lost its mind in the last five years.

Higher Learning (the podcast, not the movie) with Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsey is a wonderful podcast. 

 

The Right Time/The Evening Jones, Talking Simpsons, The 538 Podcast, This American Life, The Press Box, Higher Learning. Those are pretty much my top six right now.

I’ve subscribed to waaaaay too many podcasts. It gets overwhelming and I eventually delete a ton of them. I’ll list them with my thoughts.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

"Now OPS sucks.  Got it."

"Making his own olive brine is peak Mackus."

"I'm too hungover to watch a loss." - McNulty

I like stuff from Wondery, I've given American Scandal and American History Tellers some regular listens, plus they have one recapping every election leading up to this one.

Press Box is a great listen!

Since the HBO WWII miniseries Band of Brothers aired in 2001, Major Dick Winters of the 101st Airborne has garnered international acclaim. His exploits hit key moments of the North Western European campaign in 1944-45 as Winter’s took part in D-Day, Operation Market Garden and Battle of the Bulge. A modest hero, he epitomizes the notion of dignified leadership.

 

Winters was a fairly prolific letter writer, one person he wrote to regularly was a young lady called DeEtta Almon. After the war they lost touch but upon the release of Stephen Ambrose book Band of Brothers, DeEtta contacted Winters and presented him with all the letters he had written to her during the war.

 

In this episode I’m joined by Erik Dorr and Jared Frederick.

 

Erik is the owner and curator of the Gettysburg Museum of History, which houses a Dick Winter Collection. 

Jared Frederick is professional historian and lecturer, with Erik they have written Hang Tough a unique view of Dick Winters based round the letters to DeEtta Almon that are now housed at the Gettysburg Museum of History.

Baseball America’s new podcast ‘Future Projection’ is excellent for anyone interested in player development.
