Chin Music, Episode 14: The Importance Of Finding A Carwash Membership

It’s Friday, so it’s Chin Music time. The co-host chair returns to New York yet again, as the always entertaining Andy Mccullough, senior writer for The Athletic, joins me for two hours of mostly baseball. We start with the news of the day and talk about the rash of no-hitters, the rash of injuries, the rash of good teams in the American League East, and how we’re perfectly fine with the Dodgers signing Albert Pujols. We’re then joined by special guest Herb Lawerence, Chicago radio veteran and host of the Locked on Sox podcast, to discuss a very good White Sox team and the constant distractions created by Tony La Russa. Herb has some thoughts, and he doesn’t hold back. Then it’s emails about trade partners, the CBA, umpires, and Tommy Lee Jones, before getting into a Moment of Culture, catching up with Andy, and then departing.

As always, we hope you enjoy, and thank you for listening.

Music by the amazing French noise/punk trio Decibelles.

I don’t say this to sound like I’m pandering or trying to make some great point but, I’ve enjoyed listening to the non-white voices and female voices on this podcast. It feels like I don’t get enough of that elsewhere.

I like this for the opposite reason. I am actually pretty for to the left for the United States but I was tired of how much of Effectively Wild was started to be taken up by politics and Meg’isms’ about nothing for 10 minutes. I love Meg but she rambles for like %80 of the runtime now. This show gives me vibes of the halcyon days when it was Jeff and Ben at the helm.
