Description

The World's Most Dangerous Podcast. Hosted by Chad Dotson (Reds columnist for Cincinnati Magazine and founder of Redleg Nation, author of "The Big 50: Cincinnati Reds"), Bill Lack, Jason Linden (and the ghost of Lisalverto Bonilla), the show is full of witty and timely commentary on Cincinnati Reds baseball, along with the occasional interview with Reds players past and present. Born as the official podcast of RedlegNation.com, a vibrant community of obsessive fans of Cincinnati Reds baseball, RNR continues to entertain and inform.

Customer Reviews

Good but...

First, the positives and there are many things to recommend this show. Chad is obviously a passionate and mostly well-informed fan. The content is usually interesting and the discussions are catnip for diehard followers of the team. You do not have to be an expert on the Reds to enjoy the show. I have learned a lot about the team's history, roster strategy and minor leagues through regular listening.

Now, to the less than positives. Chad, and especially Jason Linden, I beg both of you to please watch use of the words "like" and "y'know" as buffers between thoughts. I realize that you are not radio professionals but it's hard for ten seconds to elapse at some points without these falling into the conversation. The result is that it much undermines the enjoyment I derive from listening. And these errors are so easily correctable. Removing them would improve the quality of the Podcasts immensely.

Second point of constructive criticism, the Podcast could better plan segments in advance. The talk about Brandon Phillips needing to be traded, Raisal Iglesias in the bullpen and Billy Hamilton's speed are interesting but they repeat far too much. Nothing wrong with restating opinions at some point but entire segments sometimes seem to repeat. I'd recommend taking new angles on old themes. Perhaps you might try a countdown of some type or go into history.

Final point: It's somewhat vexing to hear the frequent claim that "Brandon Phillips is the second best 2b to every play for the Reds". In terms of WAR, Bid McPhee owns that title and he was almost as good as Joe Morgan.

Greatness

Fun, casual, humorous, and great insight into the Reds.
