Long suffering baseball fan Rhea Butcher reinvents America's pastime with radically sensible thoughts on baseball, history, culture, gender, race, and more. For baseball diehards and novices alike, Rhea breaks down the week in MLB news, analyzes the culture of American sports, and explores forgotten chapters in baseball history from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League to the Negro Leagues and beyond. Plus in-depth interviews with comedians, baseball insiders, and hometown fans. And maybe even some fantasy tips! Produced by the Forever Dog Podcast Network.
After four years of baseball and other things, Rhea Butcher brings Three Swings to a close with an episode of gratitude and memories. Thank you to everyone who listened to the show, who supported the show, who bought a t-shirt, who went to a live show, who sent us a Rosin Bag question. We love...
Rhea talks the Oakland A's and MLB's bad faith negotiations with the City of Oakland, the Year of the No Hitter, and the return of the "unwritten rules" conversation. Plus Sinéad O'Connor, social media, and the fruitless discourse of cancel culture.
Rhea talks bad umpiring, early season Division Leaders, Mike Trout's best season, MVP candidates, the thrilling and bizarre conclusion to the Mets-Phillies weekend series. Plus ethical consumption and awareness without expertise.
