Listening to podcasts

If you do not live in the New England area and don’t have access to radio stations like WEEI (downloading the station app on your phone is also a great idea if you can’t listen to them on the radio), baseball podcasts are an excellent option if you want to listen to good Red Sox talk.

My personal favorites are the following:

The Section 10 Podcast: With a humoristic tone and hosted by Barstool’s Jared Carrabis and UPROXX’s Pete Blackburn, the Section 10 Podcast consists on 80 to 110 minutes discussions about the Red Sox and everything related to them. Most of the times Carrabis and Blackburn try to have a baseball or Boston related guest on the show to turn the discussions into a more in-deep talk about whatever they want. Their guests have been local celebrities like Gary Striewski or even more mainstream personalities like Katie Nolan. The Section 10 Podcast is a must on your list if you need to forget about the mess the Red Sox have been and put a little humor into it.

The Danny Picard Show: Even though it doesn’t only consist on baseball topics, The Danny Picard Show is one of the most insightful podcasts around. With deep knowledge on WWE, NFL, MLB and almost every other sport, Danny Picard provides his honest and realistic opinion on any Boston sports topic that has been trending. Picard focuses more on the NFL during the MLB offseason, but whenever the hot stove starts heating up you’ll hear his hot takes on every player that has been connected to the Red Sox.

The Lana Berry Show: Lana Berry started as a social media sensation on Twitter, thanks to her humorous comments on Bartolo Colon, #theyearofthetriple, position player pitching and Zack Greinke. After taking off as a social media star, Lana launched her own podcast where on a similar note to The Section 10 pod, you’ll hear honest but comical opinions on baseball.
