The Baseball Experience podcast was launched by longtime Astros fan and former print columnist Scott Eiland on January 5, 2012. The show is a weekly examination of the baseball news of today within a historical context. Scott also reviews his own ballpark experiences, baseball books, and baseball movies, with information and added value for casual fans and baseball supergeeks alike. Scott’s passion for the game of baseball is displayed through stats, stories, and anecdotes, with guests interspersed to add to the dialogue (or, in some cases, to provide either a counterpoint or amplification to Scott’s unique rants).
The goal of the program is to provide fans from all backgrounds a different slant on the happenings of Major League Baseball, and attempts to debunk the notion that the game is for old, slow people who probably aren’t technically savvy enough to download the show. While Scott’s obvious love-hate relationship with the team in the “Bayou City” comes through, the show is for fans of all 30 teams. Fans of every team should find something to like.
