Podcast Episode 5

This week’s “historic” podcast includes references to both 1945 (by me) and Barack Obama (by Michael Rosenblum).

The opening and closing music is from “Inside Joke” by Little Thom provided by the Podsafe Music Network.  Additional music is from “Winning Is More Than Not Losing” and “It’s Gonna Happen” both from the album “I Bleed Cubbie Blue” by Kevin Henrickson, available on his website.

Also, although it’s not mentioned in the podcast, you should check out Cubscast, “The World’s First (and Best) Chicago Cubs Podcast.”   Three times a week die-hard fans Lou, Sheps, and Sneetch provide the fan’s perspective on Cubbie baseball.  On their website you’ll find links to subscribe, along with a great message board and a store with unique Cubs-themed t-shirts.  Seriously … give it a listen.
