Ep. 36 - 11,341 Miles, 123 Cups of Coffee and the Wax Pack w/ Brad Balukjian
Play • 52 min

In this episode we welcome our guest Brad Balukjian, scientist, journalist, champion of the underdog and author of the 2020 best seller "The Wax Pack: On the Open Road in Search of Baseball’s Afterlife." In 2015, Balukjian started with a single pack of baseball cards and criss-crossed the country in a quest to find the players in the pack. Balulkjian turned the road trip into an L.A. Times best selling book earlier this year and he joins us this week to talk about the experience and the book.

Also, the Jeff Luhnow lawsuit filed against the Houston Astros for breach of contract brings the scandal to a new level and opens the potential to finally learn the truth about what looks from afar like a poorly conceived and executed cover-up. Also, Eric and Craig reconsider Kevin Costner's Academy Award winning masterpiece "Dance With Wolves" 30 years after its release earlier this week.
