Taking a Trip With Bill “Spaceman” Lee

This week we talk to former All-Star pitcher and cosmic genius Bill “Spaceman” Lee. Bill talks to us about his unique life, his new book, and his many experiences playing baseball and the philosophies that guide him.
We also have “Choice Words” about the media’s treatment of Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving. In addition, we have “Just Stand Up” and “Just Sit Down” awards to Jaylen Brown for his words about the movement for black lives during a Biden administration and Jackie MacMullan for referring to Kyrie Irving as property of the organization. We also have some words about the passing of all-time great Hank Aaron. All this and more on this week’s show!
