About this Episode

This episode digs deep and covers a lot of history. This one owes a big debt of graditude to the teriffic Good Fundies podcast. Over at Good Fundies they presented a historical look at the many missteps of the Wilpon regime, which serves as the jmping off point for this episode. We highly reccomend their work.
