Hello there.

Welcome to the new-ish and improved-ish Let’s Talk Tribe! After a couple years of tinkering things, I think we’ve finally reached a level of audio quality that I can be consistently proud of — and new intro music to boot. It technically happened in fewer than 100 episodes!

This week on the podcast, Merritt and I discuss The Bringer of Rain himself, Josh Donaldson, the struggles of Jose and Frankie, and we bemoan the death of stupid ‘90s baseball movies.
