0:00-11:45: A lovely reunion conversation is immediately interrupted by Kate updating us on her mobile, liquor-slurping neighbors. As per usual, this portends another conversation that has absolutely nothing to do with the intended purposes of this podcast. Before getting back on track, Matthew addresses the recent events in America and implores you to do what you can.

11:50-24:45: We get into MLB’s proposed plans for getting the season going. This includes some talk about timelines, player payment, and locations. All of this stumbles into open suggestions for how certain teams can recreate the environment of their home parks. This is the part where we’re contractually obligated to wonder if the Mariners could sneak into the playoffs and subsequently start an unbearable discussion about whether it counts.

25:50-50:55: At long last,,, listener questions! Thank you as always to those who submitted, we know it’s been a while since we spoke to you directly. This portions of the show covers topics like how players will come out of this physically, the upcoming draft, and Dan Altavilla’s swelling derrière.

51:00-1:04:00: The part you’ve all been waiting for, infrastructure and Fourth of July “salad” debates! Thank you as always for listening to this beautifully weird show.
