We're going to try moving the podcasts to Mondays to see if I can actually get them out on a more regular basis. It's remarkable how difficult it is to get your booty out of bed to record audio on a Saturday morning.
This week, the Crack Technical Staff and I discuss the Reds play-off hopes as well as contenders for all the awards that come up this time of year.
This week we introduce a new segment that I hope to make a regular feature: Ignorant and Inflammatory. It's the point of view of an ignorant person who gets all inflamed about something they don't understand. This week: the non-renewal of Steve Stewart's contract.
Also, the podcast is proud to introduce a voicemail line where you can call in and leave a message to be featured on the podcast. It ought to be a local call to those in the Cincinnati area, so call any time, day or night, and leave your thoughts on the Reds, podcasting, or how sexy you think my voice sounds. You may just hear yourself on next week's podcast. P.S. – Drunk dialing is encouraged!
That number is (513) 729-7106.
We finish out this week's show with 30-seconds of Gimmetheball by the Psychodots from Cincinnati Clutch Hits.

Fans of Bronson Arroyo's debut album Covering the Bases will be lining up for his follow-up work Loading the Bases, due in stores next month.
Bronson pours his heart out in this album inspired by his 2006 season experiences. Bronson's journey has been an emotional roller coaster, and this album takes you along for the ride.
- You'll feel the heart-wrenching separation of being torn from his home in Boston and shipped off to Cincinnati when you listen to the first two tracks: But I'm Too Hot For Ohio and I Hope Adam Dunn Doesn't Give Me a Wedgie.
- You'll fly high with Bronson through his first nine wins when you hear I'm Too Awesome to Keep Promises to Bloggers and Screw You, Aaron Harang.
- You'll enjoy the care-free confidence of the midseason with All-Star Party Dude and Shit, Would You Believe a Double?.
- You'll ache along with Bronson during his 11-game win draught in It's David Ross's Fault Anyway and It Would Have Been a Good Outing If You Hadn't Let Those Inherited Runners Score.
- Finally, you'll be inspired by the fierce independence of the closing track My Name Ain't Cornroyo.
Loading the Bases is a must-have for baseball collectors and music enthusiasts alike. Pre-order your copy today at the MLB gift shop, cow pastures, and everywhere bullshit is sold.
