Episode 22: The Intimate Episode

by Kevin Goldstein

Here's what happened. As we warned you, this episode would be a couple of days late, and with a big World Series Preview coming in just four days, we decided to go light, with a guest free episode that would just feature some playoff talk and a quick film discussion. Of course, it ended up being two hours anyway, as we get in-depth on the playoffs, share some tales from New York and get into an intense argument about Elvis Andrus' ability to become a media star. Lesson learned: With Jason and I, nothing is quick. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Note: We do alert you to the presence of the occasional adult language. Don't say we didn't warn you.
