PosCast Draft: American Things

Michael and I draft American Things on the PosCast this week.

You can download it on (deep breath): StitcheriTunes, Google PlayAudioBoom, and supposedly Spotify though I have no idea how to link that one.

And, of course, you can listen here. I should add, we also did a PosCast on Mike Trout, the Yankees and NFL player contracts.

Taylor Swift

Michael Schur and I drafted Taylor Swift songs on the PosCast this week because … we did.

Here, for your amusement, is my scouting report leading in — this is from the Pittsburgh Marriott. I was in Pittsburgh for the U.S. Open.

PosCast with Joe Mantegna

This was one of my favorite interviews. Joe Mantegna, one of Hollywood’s great actors — Tony winner, Hollywood Walk of Fame recipient, star of television’s “Criminal Minds” — is, above all, a great guy and a very big sports fan.

We talk Da Cubs, Da Bears, a little bit of acting and, yes, that time he took Sir Ben Kingsley to his first baseball game.

Here it is on iTunes and Stitcher.

PosCast on Gordie Howe

The Toronto Star’s legendary Bruce Arthur was kind enough to join me on the PosCast to talk about the extraordinary, folk-hero life of Gordie Howe.

You can download on Stitcher or iTunes.

The PosCast: In Our Day …

Michael and I draft stuff that used to be a lot better back in the old days. We did not draft Albert Pujols, but he could have.

Stitcher (Love these guys at Stitcher — thinking of making it the official home of the PosCast, but I wouldn’t even know how to do that).

The PosCast Episode 18 — Cubs and Warriors

We faux argue about the Cubs and Warriors, discuss the future of baseball free agency and ask the question: Are the Yankees a bad baseball team or an elaborate tax shelter for people with made up names like Chasen Shreve? Also: Carlos Beltran’s Hall of Fame case and the horror show that is the Atlanta Braves.

It seems to available on iTunes — the PosCast automatically downloaded to my phone — but I can’t find it via search. Other download options:

PosCast Stories: Bob Costas

Talked with Bob Costas a bit about storytelling, Vin Scully, Mark McGwire and — this was killer — Anthony Quinn. Really fun.

Already putting together next week’s PosCast stories with my friend Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. These things are fun. Not sure how long I can keep coming up with them, but hoping it can last a while. And still planning to do the real PosCast with Michael once a month.

Oh, in case you don’t want to just listen to Costas here, let me give you some links:

PosCast Stories (With Dayton Moore)

So, you might know that every month (or two months, or three months) I do the PosCast with good pal Michael Schur. We talk for a while about stuff, then talk for a little bit longer about stuff, and then we draft ridiculous things. It’s probably the most fun thing I do every month (or two months, or three months).

Unfortunately, we don’t have time to do it more often. Well, I could probably find the time, but Michael is too busy doing things like creating and writing and exec producing awesome television shows. I honestly don’t see why he would do that when he could do the PosCast where he gets a 50-50 split of the profits (total profit: $0.00).

In any case, we are now planning on doing the PosCast once or twice a month — well, once a month but we might split it in two — and I wanted a way to make the PosCast weekly.

Introducing: PosCast Stories.

The idea is simple: I find cool people and ask them to tell some stories. That’s the whole deal.

We’ll see how it goes. The first PosCast Stories is with Royals general manager Dayton Moore. It’s only like 20 minutes, which is how long it takes Michael and I just to thank each other for being on the show. Anyway, hope you like it and feel free to send along any suggestions, people who might make for good guests or whatever else.
