The Squared Up Podcast, Episode 1: Pith Fail
It didn't feel like an hour, but that's how long inaugural guest Couch Baron and I blathered on about baseball in the first episode of The Squared Up Podcast. I'll have a better handle on the length (and the Garage Band editing tools) in future episodes.
We just missed the MVP announcements, but TSUP #1's lineup includes the Cy Young and Manager of the Year awards; the Jeter contract negotiations; poor styling choices of the '80s; Zoolander; Colonel Kurtz; baseball boyfriends; Fire(d) Joe Morgan; the Luis Sojo SPF 4 Plaque; that (Terry) Collins chap is losing it; and more!
Couch Baron, a.k.a. John Ramos, is a film producer and writer living in Los Angeles. He recently produced a film called East Fifth Bliss starring Dexter's Michael C. Hall. He writes for Television Without Pity and also on his own blog, Pull Up A Chair. You can follow him on Twitter (and get updates on his film).
You know me: I'm Sarah D. Bunting, and I enjoy picking fights about snacks, showing no respect for Sandy Alderson at this difficult time, and running that Dave Stieb joke into the ground.
I can't wait to read your comments, discussion topics, guest requests, and sputtery defenses of Moneyball — bunting at tomatonation dot com.
