“I fancy myself someone who likes dialoguing baseball as a method of resting my mind from considering other items of deep consequence. I find it refreshing that the hosts of this podcast seem to look at Mariners fandom through a similar lens. They are well-spoken, insightful, precise thinkers and jokers who treat their idioms with care, don’t mix their metaphors, and apply worldly and empathetic dispositions to their discussion of good ol’ baseball. I consider these cool kids to be magnitudes more enjoyable than any other Mariners podcast, and I encourage the others to take a queue or two from Lookout Landing. Update - I am adding a note in this review to encourage Evan and the other hosts of the B-squad to be careful and intentional with their lexical and idiomatic choices. It seems that with each episode, I say to myself more times, “I do not think this person knows what that word means.” Perhaps add a host to this squad who has a background in writing or performance, rather than audio tech. I love this show, and it’s getting tough to listen, y’all!
The latest episode pushed me over the edge, friends. I adore Kate and John. You two have been there for me through hard times with delightful and insightful thoughts on life and sport. But with five ad breaks and platitudinal, non-insightful takes from Evan - combined with recent JV squad episodes - I have to sign off for now. I’ll keep reading the posts and will check back in a few months to see if things have changed.
Sincerely, thank you Kate and John.”
