Chin Music, Episode 21: Giant Pieces of Foam

It’s a special episode of the podcast, as we eschew the usual format to spend more than two-and-a-half hours previewing the 2021 MLB Draft, which begins Sunday evening. For this episode, I am joined by our very own well-connected draft guru, Eric Longenhagen, as we discuss the story lines to watch for and what might happen in the first round and beyond. In between our two discussions, we are joined by four staples of draft media for a series of quick-hit interviews during which each answers three questions from Twitter and, for those appearing on television this weekend, discusses their suit and tie choices. In order, our guests are:

It’s a whole lot of draft talk and little else, apart from a couple of tangents on Rory Scovel and the town of Magnolia, Arkansas. The podcast will return to its regularly scheduled format next week.

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

Music by Dead.
