Breaking Down #Baseball Culture w/ @britnidlc #KatieSpeakShow Ep102 08/19/2017

In brief: Baseball! It’s still described as our national pastime and the history of its culture certainly parallels that of our wider culture. Baseball writer Britni de la Cretaz is back on the show to discuss the way the love for the game intersects with its problematic aspects off the field. Sports fans and those who are ambivalent about the game alike will appreciate Britni’s critical eye and analysis.
