Two ‘R’s. Two ‘C’s. Two friends with a Star Wars obsession and four days of down time between starts. Thus, a podcast is born.
Join Yankees’ pitcher CC Sabathia and media personality Ryan Ruocco as they bring fans inside the mind of one of MLB’s most successful and durable performers.
Recorded in-season and exclusively between CC's days on the mound, you never know who will enter the bullpen as the duo discuss sports, music, culture and more.
Once upon a time R2C2 was only a fledgling idea in the minds of two ambitious friends. The NBA playoffs were just getting started when Ryan and CC reached out to The Players’ Tribune about their idea for a podcast. They knew that their chemistry had the potential to make them a great on-air team — they just needed an opportunity. Jay Williams, who had just joined TPT as an executive producer, loved the idea and was eager to lend a hand. In April, the three met to produce the very first episode of R2C2 and the rest is history. In this installment the trio talk mistaken identity, the mental preparation necessary to take the mound, CC’s fear of the dark and Kobe’s mind games. On this show, we’re taking it back to where it all started — and it was so fun that we had to share.
