Chin Music, Episode 3: I’ve Studiously Avoided Ska

It’s another episode, whether you like it or not. This week’s originally scheduled co-host was struck by COVID-19 (wear a mask, folks!), so filling in is Craig Calcaterra. We talk about the alternate sites, spring training games as background noise, Twitter baseball highlights and more. Later, we are joined by musician/recording engineer Steve Albini, who shares how the pandemic has impacted the music industry, and finish up with a discussion of baseball media in 2021 and family secrets. Taste, and enjoy.

Chin Music, Episode 2: Thank You For Bringing Your Bubbly Cheer

We’re back. This week, I welcome very special co-host Cody Decker, who shares stories from his decade-long career as a minor league slugger. We discuss spring training eyewash, DFA limbo, his nine games on the mound and much more. Then we’re joined by our special guest for the week, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times, who discusses the ugly recent news from Mariners-land while adding his Japanese whiskey recommendations. Then we take some listener emails, covering changes to the game, how quickly trades can be made, and politics in the clubhouse. A variety of side conversations and tangents ensue. It’s over two hours. We ramble a bit. Enjoy!

Yup, I’m podcasting again. Join me, Kevin Goldstein, for episode 1 of Chin Music, my new podcast. This week I welcome very special co-host David Roth of Defector, and feature a guest segment with The Athletic’s Pedro Moura, who talks about the Trevor Bauer signing and covering the beat during a global pandemic. Plus, we discuss the grind of spring training, what to do in Florida, some TV shows and much more.
