Customer Reviews

The cycle goes 4-4

Might not be fair to write a review after one episode of a podcast, but I'm excited to listen to this one grow. Great mix of comedy, sports, interviews and banter. Pat makes you feel like it is you asking your favorite athlete what you always wanted to ask. Love the access he will have to some great story tellers. Ron Kittle is hilarious. Who knew The Big Hurt loved soaps. Congrats on the podcast, can't wait to hear the next one.

the cycle hits a circuit clout

I feel like professional athletes get sick of being asked the same questions over and over again and it leads to some pretty boring interviews. Pat does a nice job of mixing things up with his guests, and so far it has led to some really interesting stories. Never dawned on me that Hurt shared a locker room with Bo Jackson and Michael Jordan. Loved hearing Wimpy giving Kittle a hard time. And Swirsky… wow. I laugh out loud at least a couple of times per episode. This show is a winner - the Juan Uribe of podcasts, but with fewer guns.

Good to fill my off-season baseball fix

This podcast is sponsored by the white sox. It is pretty funny and the interviews are really good with interesting guests. Thus far, they have all been pre-recorded, so no coverage of free agent signings or pre-season play. Would love to see some analysis and honest baseball talk, but as a huge fan I am going to keep listening.
