Three Percent Podcast #4: Books for Baseball Players
This week is another baseball-centric podcast featuring Tom Roberge’s individual book recommendations for five Mets players. He came up with this idea as a tribute to the recently “retired” Phil Jackson (who won’t be smoking peyote in his Montana cabin), who is famous for giving books to all of his players. Here’s a list of the Zen Master’s recommendations that leaked out earlier this year and includes 2666 by Roberto Bolano . . .
And with BookExpo America taking place next week, we talked a bit about the books (and parties) we’re most looking forward to. (Spoiler: Tom’s into Guns ‘n Roses and wants to crash the Duff McKagen party.)
And this week’s intro/outro music is Go Cubs Go. Yes, Nate went there.
