Effectively Wild Episode 1515: The Waiting Game

Ben Lindbergh and Sam Miller banter about life during self-isolation and delayed media consumption and explore some of the long-considered and ultimately rejected article ideas in Sam’s tickler file, including Ken Griffey Jr.’s rap career, an undiscovered baseball star in Yosemite, an advance-scouting conspiracy theory, an unorthodox solution to extra-inning games, and a complaint about baseball inspired by Shel Silverstein (plus a brief baseball coronavirus update and the recommended baseball distraction of the day, about the new Statcast system and Hawk-Eye).

Audio intro: John Lennon, "Isolation"
Audio interstitial: Kid Sensation (Feat. Ken Griffey Jr.), "The Way I Swing"
Audio outro: Built to Spill, "The Wait"
