Chin Music, Episode 5: You Missed The Window For Gravy

Hi there. It’s me again. This week, I’m joined by my dear friend Jorge Arangure, former sports writer turned New York Times Metro editor covering the pandemic. In our first segment, we talk about the new rules in the minors, extension season, and some teams’ plans to fill their parks with fans. Then we are joined by Russell Dorsey, the Cubs beat writer forThe Chicago Sun Times, who talks about an offseason of mixed messages on the North Side, and the numerous questions about the team heading into the 2021 season. Then it’s listener emails and a long discussion about transitioning from sports to real media, as well as covering COVID while also getting it. We hope you enjoy!
