The Cubs Talk Podcast breaks down all things baseball on the North Side. Host David Kaplan and a rotating cast of Cubs insider Gordon Wittenmyer, beat writer Maddie Lee, and writer Tim Stebbins, bring insider perspective, regular player interviews, and news updates during the team's pursuit of another championship. New episodes release every Wednesday and Friday morning.
Kelly Crull catches up with Cubs Opening Day starter Jon Lester on his drive home from camp in Mesa, and discusses what a normal spring training day looks like, relationships between the players, the dynamic between himself and David Ross, pushing players like Anthony Rizzo to the next level, who the best golfer on the team is, and his past as a soccer player (1:10). Then, Luke Stuckmeyer gets the behind-the-scenes story of the ride-along from Kelly (28:30).
