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.

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.

X Ray Vision with Jason Concepcion.

 

Jason used to cohost Binge Mode on the Ringer with Mallory Rubin before leaving for Crooked Media.

 

The pod covers all the nerd pop culture you would expect.  If you enjoyed his work on Binge Mode you will like him here as well.

Any good true crime podcasts lately?

"It's liftoff from here" - after selling on 2022

"We're on a slight upward arc" - Winter Meetings 2022

"I think it's really hard to sit there and chart a course and say, 'We're likely to win the division.'" - Winter Meetings 2022

We'll touch on Ravens/Dolphins on The Bank this week. Does that count?
