Love, love, love this podcast
At first, I was charmed by a baseball podcast delivered in those great "g'day mate" Australian accents. Then I realized that the host, Chris Coleman, is not only passionate about the game, but knowledgeable as well. The focus is mostly on Australian baseball and Australians playing internationally, but there's plenty of coverage of the game elsewhere to keep any fan happy. And regular guest Warwick Pethybridge is as weird and quirky and wonderful as the weird and quirky and wonderful happenings he discusses in the game we love.
