I want to share something neat with you. Phil Naessens is a sports talk show host who operates several podcasts. One of his shows focuses on MLB and NBA (whichever is in season), and he recently contacted AN about having someone on his show to talk about the A's. He lives in Greece, and that's where much of his audience is, so for a lot of his listeners, Moneyball was their first exposure to the sport. He wanted someone from AN to come on the show and give a little introduction to the 2012 A's, from their magical season to their new players to the movie and the Moneyball strategy.
So, last night I called in to his show, and we ended up talking A's baseball for a full hour. Honestly, this interview was designed more for the casual/new/uninformed fan, so you may not learn a whole lot from it if you're a die-hard regular, but lets be honest here: I'm pretty sure that you would listen to someone simply recite the A's statistics over and over for an hour if I offered that to you. You love the A's. Don't deny it.
If you would like to hear me talk about the team for an hour, here's the link:
That will take you to Phil's website, where you can learn a bit more about him and listen to the embedded broadcast. However, I would more highly recommend this link:
That will take you straight to the broadcast, with no other text to sift through. Just a play button and a progress bar. The other advantage to that second link is that you can navigate the progress bar; my section doesn't start until about 44 minutes in, so if you don't want to listen to 40 minutes of New York Mets talk, then you should use the 2nd link and skip to around 44:00 (I think the closest I could get was about 42:30; otherwise you miss the beginning of our segment).
Enjoy it and let me know what you think! Phil posts here under the name PhilNaessensShow, so if you see him around say hi and make him feel welcome.
