From Mondo Beer + Pizza on the southbank of the Thames, a 5-minute walk from Shakespeare's Globe Theater on one side and London Bridge on the other, the Best Podcast in Baseball visits with Cardinals and baseball fans in London to discuss how they became Cardinals fans and how they chase the game with the time zones against them. You'll hear from, in order, Scott Seamons, Matt Benson, and Russell Eassom, one of the hosts of the podcast Bat Flips & Nerds, a UK-based baseball podcast. It's not Mark Twain, an Missouri innocent abroad, but there is witty banter. Promise. They talk with BPIB host and baseball writer Derrick Goold over pints about what the London Series could mean for baseball's profile in Britain. We also learn some new words. The podcast was organized with the help of the founders of Mondo Brewing in London. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design of St. Louis, is a production of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, StlToday.com, and Derrick Goold.
