Michael Kremer, volunteer director of the San Quentin baseball program, joins the boys to talk about how he got involved coaching baseball at one of America’s most notorious prisons (and what people think when he tells them what he does), the history of baseball at San Quentin, the diversity and skill level of the players, celebrity sightings, whether or not and scouts have shown up and that one inmate who almost went pro.

Director and screenwriter Penelope Spheeris joins the boys to talk about her special friendship with the late-Tommy Lasorda Jr, her relationship with “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels, the iconic film she turned down, how Donald Trump ended up in one of her movies, breaking David Spade’s “comedy balls” and, of course, “Wayne’s World”.

Jan 16, 2024

Just in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of JAWS, author of The Cooperstown Casebook and senior writer at FanGraphs, Jay Jaffe joins the boys (for the sixth time!) to break down his 2024 Hall of Fame ballot, predicts who will be joining Jim Leyland in Cooperstown this July, wonders whether or not Chase Utley’s plaque will include his soul patch when he ultimately gets to 75% and reveals the player that he can’t wait to NOT vote for.

Jan 9, 2024

TNA wrestling star Dirty Dango joins the boys to preview this year’s Hard to Kill pay-per-view, growing up a Boston Red Sox fan, his family history making bats (and syrup!), that time his grandpa played against the famed Kansas City Monarchs, debuting at WrestleMania and whether or not it was more or less nerve wracking than throwing out the first pitch prior to a Tampa Bay Rays game.

Jan 1, 2024

To celebrate being the most listened to episode of 2023, “Last Comiskey” director Matt Flesch joins the boys to talk about growing up a Chicago White Sox fan, spending his summers at 35th Street and Shields, what inspired him and his brother Mike to document the final season at the iconic ballpark, the interview they were most excited to nail down and, of course, the one that got away!

Episode originally aired April 10, 2023.
