Long suffering baseball fan Rhea Butcher reinvents America's pastime with radically sensible thoughts on baseball, history, culture, gender, race, and more. For baseball diehards and novices alike, Rhea breaks down the week in MLB news, analyzes the culture of American sports, and explores forgotten chapters in baseball history from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League to the Negro Leagues and beyond. Plus in-depth interviews with comedians, baseball insiders, and hometown fans. And maybe even some fantasy tips! Produced by the Forever Dog Podcast Network.
LIVE AT THE ATX TELEVISION FESTIVAL IN AUSTIN TX, Rhea talks to TV journalist Lesley Goldberg (The Hollywood Reporter) about finding baseball as a bored only child, Jose Canseco swings, fast pitch vs slow pitch, baseball TV series, the Dodgers resurgence, and more.
Plus Rhea makes an impassioned defense of bunting, analyzes the bizarre walk-off bunt that ended last Sunday's Astros-Rangers game, and offers a counter suggestion to Nick Elam's 10 ideas for increasing baseball's popularity-- how about just give more people access to play baseball???
Plus Rhea shares thoughts on how to defuse trolls and responds to Twitter questions about fast pitch vs slow pitch and A League of Their Own interpretations!
