New Bluebird Banter Podcast, Ep 1: "First!!"

In which Mike and I, but mostly Mike, talk a lot.

We did it!

Hi everyone. This is the first episode to the new BBB Podcast (if anyone has a suggestion for an actual name, holler). It was a lot of fun to do, and hopefully we can make it a regular feature.

Sincere thanks to the first guest, our own Mike Hannah; it was a pleasure. Fun fact: it's extremely easy to be a host when the guest does the majority of the speaking. Not only that, Mike also handled most of the editing. What did I do? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Click Here to listen to the podcast. Youtube for now, hopefully we can find a better platform.

Contents (total 84 min):

1:50 - Discussion of yesterday's game (Sun Aug 30) against the Tigers. We pulled a BOTSO and talked about the Tigers a lot

38:03 - Discussion of the Blue Jays season to date. It didn't last long, because we spiralled into the next topic rather quickly

48:21 - We start a very long rant about sports media and Derek Jeter

1:08:43 - Discussion about the jobs Anthopoulos and Gibbons have done, and fan perceptions of the two. Mentions of new club president Mark Shapiro, though we didn't know it at the time.

Once again, huge thanks to Mike for the help. Would love to get a chance to do this again with you. I'm hoping we can get another one in this week, given people want to be on the show.

If you have an hour or so to burn, check it out. Thanks, and enjoy the show.
