Get your rally caps on! We're sharing stories about sports. Featuring: 1. Every Little Thing: “When did organ music and baseball become an item? ELT talks to some pro organ players to find out how organs and ballparks got together. Plus, meet Nancy Faust — the legendary organist who brought trolling to modern baseball music.” 2. HowSound: “Bradley Campbell couldn't believe it when I told him I'd like to interview him about sports stories. He knows how much I hate them. But, a story he produced and other episodes of Gamebreaker are well worth the listen. Bradley explains why.” 3. Player’s Own Voice: “Brock McGillis loves a good old hockey game. His passion for playing the sport drove the goalie all the way to the bigs. But McGillis is a gay man in a sport whose culture does not readily accept queer males. So he turned his own miserable experiences, butting up against 'bro' culture, into a working practise- helping leagues become more inclusive.” 4. Death, Sex & Money: “Mitch Horacek started the baseball pre-season in Florida, at minor league spring training for the Minnesota Twins. And he felt like it was going to be a big season. But the minor league season didn't happen—it was cancelled this spring. Mitch wasn't invited to make his major league debut with the Twins, as he'd hoped. This episode is part of our series Game Changer, about how the COVID-19 pandemic has upended the lives and livelihoods of athletes.”
