Hi, pod friendos! Welcome to LRB HQ – doesn’t the yard look great? Since we’re all a bunch of desk monkeys, we had a couple of buff dudes take care of the landscaping. Pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable as Mike, Meredith, and Ann recap last week’s TBTL. We’ve got a couple of drinks we can offer – would you prefer a $9 glass of sugar, or a shot of whiskey? (If you’re real nice, we might be able to rustle up an old toe to drop in there.) Feel free to use any bathroom you like: to us, you’re a first-class person, no matter what the airlines say. On today’s episode, Mike teaches us about cultural differences in baseball celebrating, Meredith has a very naughty dog, and Ann is literally podcasting in the dark. You may have to raise your voice a little because of the Mariachi band, but we’re confident our walk-up music is the best.
