2023 SABR Analytics Conference Research Awards: Voting Open Now!

After months of deliberation and well-intentioned procrastination, we've gotten the Effectively Wild podcast off the ground. Between Up and In and Tower of Power, BP is already well stocked with weekly podcasts, so we're trying to do something different: a much shorter podcast that appears much more often. Each time out, we'll pick an interesting topic or two from the previous night's news and action to discuss in depth, and with any luck, we'll wrap up the episode in around 10 minutes. The goal is to deliver new episodes daily (well, Monday through Friday) in time for your morning commute. We're figuring this out as we go, so suggestions and feedback are welcome. And yes, Ben knows that he called Zach Britton Chris Britton. He can't help it—he's been calling him Chris for years. Oh, and in case you were wondering, Sam said "douchebag" at some point, so we suppose this is explicit.

Awesome! I've got a long daily commute, and the more BP-related stuff I can listen to during it, the better.
Ben - you sound nothing like what I expected. Looking forward to the evolution
Nice, can't wait to get my daily fix!
Ben- a little sleepy for the first ep?
I would like to know just how late they recorded the show (East Coast time). I'm guessing 2AM.
Ben doesn't sleep.
We recorded around 12:30. I was a little sleepy, but mostly I just have a sleepy-sounding voice.
Terkel, Stern, Glass... Lindbergh?
