Worst Baseball Movies Ever. Swing and a Miss!

Writer, director and podcaster, Paul Sullivan comes to give us the three (plus bonuses) worst baseball movies ever. Paul is the host of the daily baseball podcast, “Sully Baseball.” That show is going to hit episode #1,000 real soon.

Buy Paul’s film “I’ll Believe You.”

So I invited him on to talk about the nation’s two favorite past times, baseball and listening to Sully’s podcast. I mean movies. As Paul points out, the list of the best BB movies are usually the same. SO he picks films that didn’t quite knock it out of the park (get it?)

I’ve seen most of the films Paul’s talking about. Which doesn’t make a lot of sense, since I HATE watching baseball games. I like going live. That’s an event. But watching on TV or as my dad did, listen on the radio, never made sense to me. Like I tell Paul, when people start talking sports, they might as well be speaking Chinese. Not at all fun.

This is a great list of bad baseball movies. Plus we go off and talk about other things. Vin Diesel going “full Steve Segal,” good and bad Albert Brooks, Marc Maron’s search for your “guys,” how we met, Paul’s Holocaust denial and Paul’s Holocaust denial, denial.

 

Here are other shows with Paul!

 

 

 

Megan Follows in “Shattered”

Megan Follows in “Shattered”

Comedian Wayne Federman talks about the 80’s anti- drug film, “Shattered…if your kid’s on drugs.” The movie stars future and past stars like Megan Follows, a young Dermot Mulroney, a middle aged Burt Renoylds and Judd Nelson. You are court ordered to listen.

Wayne also talks about performing stoned, unfair “mom and pop” stores, real peer pressure and much more.

Wayne talked to the producer of this famed film and we get some behind the scenes dirt. Also, we find out that Megan Follows is famous.

In the show I tell my war stories of working on MTV’s Spring Break. I promised pictures. I just moved so my scanner is not hooked up. I promise to have them up by next week or so. Heavy on the “or so.”

Starting this Thursday, Wayne is having his own film festival with great comics like Gary Shandling, Margaret Cho and comedian Doug Benson. If you go, find Wayne and tell him you heard him on the show. Then ask him for a dollar. Worth a try.
