BP Podcast

Episode 64: Tales of Juan, Tales of #want

by Kevin Goldstein

A brief (ok, for us) show in which we go through your email, talk about non-existent playoff races, what makes and MVP and show some tentative excitement about the Arizona Fall League. Then we talk to Marlins beat writer Juan C. Rodriguez about the future of baseball in south Florida and wraps things up with some tales from Mexico. As always, we hope you enjoy and thank you for listening.

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

OK, I checked, its not the shortest ever, but the 2nd shortest (and the shortest since Episode 2).

Here's a list of all 11 under-two-hour Episodes, according to the time on the BP Podcast post for each Episode, in order of increasing time:

Episode 2 (1:18:59)
Episode 64 (1:29:13)
Episode .9 (1:29:51)
Episode 51 (1:40:11)
Episode 43 (1:43:10)
Episode 41 (1:43:41)
Episode 8 (1:45:54)
Episode 11 (1:52:49)
Episode 6 (1:57:21)
Episode 34 (1:57:34)
Episode 3 (1:58:58)

Of course, technically speaking, Episode 28.1 is the shortest ever (18:46), but since it did not follow the typical format, I excluded it from this analysis. YMMV.
