So Two Writers Slinging Yang is now three weeks old, and here are some thoughts:
A. I was shaken this morning by the following Tweet …
B. It turns out “slinging yang” means both “talking shit” and “selling rock.” I’ll leave it to you to guess what I’m referring to.
C. The show’s theme music is a tune by MC White Owl called “The Dead Poet.” It’s just otherworldly awesome.
D. Today’s guest is Susan Slusser, the longtime Oakland A’s beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicle and a peer I’ve long admired. I was particularly riveted by her thoughts on Moneyball, and the portrayal of Art Howe.
E. The Bumpers link is here.
F. The iTunes link is here.
