Season 3, Episode 6: Oakland Here We Come!
Yes, it's been a while, but we're back and we're in a good mood as we are one week away from heading out to Oakland for our first visit to the Coliseum after a couple of years of pandemic-forced absence. It's the full crew together, with Matt joined by Dom, Hannah and New York A's Jays to look ahead to our trip, look back at our mid-season visit to New York, and to look ahead at the 2023 schedule and new rules.

Season 3, Episode 5: A Pod With A Difference
Recorded live on Sunday 15 May, Matt looks back at the first three games of the series against the LA Angels, previews the Sunday game and looks ahead to the series against the Minnesota Twins.A mixture of busyness, illness and laziness has meant that Matt was being a bit tardy with planning the next podcast. So, a somewhat impromptu pre-game live-stream seemed the imperfect opportunity to try out an additional format of pod where Matt discusses various A's news with a bit of music, and some comments coming in from the viewers/listeners. Music featured in this podcast episode via Epidemic Sound: "Hazme el Amor" by Lu-Ni "El Camino de la Noche" by El Equipo Del Norte "The End Of All Things" by Niklas Johansson

Dom has just got back from a trip to Oakland where he took in some Roots games and made a special trip to Stockton to see the A's Single-A affiliate the Ports, so Matt catches up with him on all the news from the trip and what's happened during the first couple of weeks of the A's 2022 season.

This podcast was recorded as a livestream so includes a few technical snafus along the way (wrong buttons being pressed!) that hopefully add a few moments of light relief!
