This week, we have our very first thematic podcast. It’s a great story of victory and defeat, racism and acceptance, international relations, and most importantly of all: baseball!
I hope you’ll enjoy listening to this story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Give it a listen here, and tell me what you think!
