Matt Welch from the great Fifth Column podcast stops by to discuss his role in that 3 man monster, his history in the business, and issues of the day. Podcast topics include, but are not limited to:
Is Matt the Ernie Johnson of Fifth Column or its Paul McCartney?
Are you now, or have you ever been a libertarian???
Is Fifth Column libertarian? Or something else?
What was Matt doing in Hungry during the 1990s?
The post Berlin Wall era vs. the post 9/11 era
We talk about my article on the 9/11 era in sports vs. today’s team-endorsed messaging
Leagues and teams are externalizing their internal issues with workforce homophobia
Welch is, sadly, an Angels fan. How does he feel about these calls to trade Ohtani?
Is Ohtani really like if Patrick Mahomes was also Nick Bosa? Or is it different?
The A’s are sad (Was Moneyball as a business strategy missing the forest for the trees?)
