Open Mind?
 
Once again the skeptic (me) has to explain the whole open mind concept.  Having an open mind mean being willing to consider a claim, not necessarily to accept that claim.  I read Sharon Hill’s (Doubtful News) blog about who is open minded, the skeptic or the believer.  If you’ve listened to my show for any amount of time, you’d know what I think.
 
Never Found In The 80s: Husker Du
 

This band is from St. Paul, MN, but I’m sure you’ve heard they are from Minneapolis.  That happens all the time.  People not from Minnesota think our only city is Minneapolis.  I makes me so… Sorry, I’m from St. Paul.  We get a little touchy about the whole Minneapolis thing.  Anyway, I wrote about Husker Du and included a concert video clip.  I was at that concert!  You can see my piece on this never found band at the Stuck in the 80s blog.

Why I Hate The NY Yankees (And You Should, Too)


Sure, there are plenty of reasons to hate the Yankees, but while watching Ken Burns: Baseball I finally pinpointed my main reasons: the 1960 World Series and Stephen Jay Gould.  If you weren’t listening you can download the show from the Z Talk Radio archive and get the details.
 

Movie Recommendation: Ken Burns: Baseball
 

PBS


Well, as long as I was talking about it already I figured I should recommend this excellent documentary series.  It and its follow-up The Tenth Inning are streaming on Netflix.  I watched this series a few times now.  It demonstrates why baseball is the greatest game ever devised.  Ever.  Period.
Music heard on the show (These songs are linked above)…
