Three Swings Awards, Playoff Updates, and Queerness in Sports (w/ A.W. Klass)

Fri Oct 05 2018 (01:16:50)

Rhea returns this week with a trophy case full of Three Swings Awards, another round of playoff predictions, and an interview with photographer and baseball superfan A.W. Klass!

It's a packed episode, with consideration of the Brewers' promising underdog performance, the MLB's problematic disparities in dealing with substance abuse and domestic abuse, the Cubs’ asking-for-trouble attitude in putting the infamous billy goat on their World Series ring, and the virtues of playing the small ball instead of a home run game.

Plus, photographer and baseball superfan A.W. Klass joins Rhea for a conversation on relating queer identity to sports fandom, the choice between creating a radical community or radically infiltrating extant communities (or both), and purple silk yarmulkes that may or may not be heirlooms from Prince.
