The Cubs Talk Podcast breaks down all things baseball on the North Side. Host Luke Stuckmeyer and a rotating cast, including David Kaplan, Kelly Crull and Tony Andracki, bring insider perspective, regular player interviews, and news updates during the team's pursuit of another championship.
Luke Stuckmeyer and producer Eric Strobel welcome Frederic, aka the Cubs' unofficial Director of Morale. Fred takes us through the origins and growth of his fandom and social media persona (1:30), before discussing how Jake Arrieta's dominance announced the Cubs as contenders (7:30) and the now-ubiquitous hard hats in the bleachers (16:00). Finally, Fred and the guys talk about this year's team, including the lack of strikeout stuff on the pitching staff (22:30) and the unicorn that is Javy Baez (30:00).
