Episode details

Host Joe Posnanski brings back favorite guest hosts Brandon McCarthy and Ellen Adair to chat about how they're surviving the sports-less quarantine right now in America. They discuss whether re-watching old games is satisfying the sports void and Brandon plays teacher as he talks about what pitchers can do to make hitters' lives a nightmare. The crew answers mailbag questions before Joe welcomes in Eric Nusbaum to talk about his book Stealing Home about how Dodger Stadium came to pass in Los Angeles in the early 1960s. The trio then drafts the things they most want to accomplish during the quarantine. Hear why Joe has his sights set on taking down Clayton Kershaw and Susan Sarandon in table tennis now that he has his very own ping-pong set. The PosCast with Joe Posnanski and Michael Schur regularly posts new episodes of meaninglessness each week.
