Episode 6 - The Art of Fielding

Reading the Game

Share:
The Art of Fielding is a 2011 novel by American author Chad Harbach. It focuses on the fortunes of shortstop Henry Skrimshander and his career playing college baseball with the fictional Westish College Harpooners. We were delighted to be joined by the author himself and in the first part of the episode we chatted about his inspiration and the long process of bringing the book to publication as well as some of the book's themes. We were also joined by Ash Day (@AshDay29) for the round-table part of the show, in which we discussed the book in some length, and got slightly introspective about confronting failure and being in the presence of greatness, amongst other things! It would be lovely if everybody could rate and review the podcast wherever you get your podcasts. We love seeing the feedback chiefly because it is nice seeing positive things written about yourself, but also because it increases the exposure of the podcast on different platforms and helps to expand our audience as we march ever onward towards global podcast domination! Apple Podcasts listeners can leave a review here. Don't forget to check out the website, and give us a follow on Twitter @RTGPod - please don't hesitate to get in touch with feedback and to suggest future content for the pod. Hope you enjoy the show!
