Episode 21: Christopher ‘Mad Dog’ Russo!

Fair warning: this may be my favorite episode yet.

Award-winning sports talk personality Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo joins our podcast. Doggie called in from his office in Manhattan before hosting “High Heat” on MLB Network and “Mad Dog Unleashed” on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio to chat about New Yankee Stadium versus the old House That Ruth Built. There was a specific reason why we brought up the question; it in part plays in to our 10th anniversary content around the new Stadium. But, there was also another reason, which we mentioned to Russo at the beginning of our chat.

The “Mad Dog” also chatted about some of his favorite ballparks in baseball and MLB allowing him creative freedom for his daily program.

You can catch that program, “High Heat With Christopher Russo” weekdays at 1 pm EST. “Mad Dog Unleashed” airs weekdays at 3 pm EST on SiriusXM.

Episode 16: MLB Network’s Heidi Watney On The Rivalry, Her Studio Gig And More

As the Yankees wrap up the final home stand of the regular season and second-to-last series against the Red Sox, we welcome current MLB Network studio host/field reporter and former NESN Red Sox reporter Heidi Watney to the podcast. Watney covers everything from her gig at MLB Network to the front row seat (or rather, spot in the camera well) that she held at both the old and new stadium for sports’ biggest rivalry. Plus, Watney talks about the charity events for both Derek Jeter and David Ortiz’s foundations that she’ll be attending this year and what her postseason assignment is for MLB Network.

Thanks again to Heidi for giving us so much of her time and such great answers and insight in to her experiences with a regional sports network and MLBN. And of course, thanks to you for rating, reviewing and subscribing wherever you get podcasts!
