John and Ben are joined this week by two special guests. Evan October, frontman of the Isotopes Punk Rock Baseball Club talks about their upcoming UK tour supporting CJ Ramone and how a baseball themed band will get to British crowds. 

Journalist Nick Miller then joins to discuss his recent Guardian piece on MLB's efforts in the UK and parallels to the growth of soccer in the States.

He sticks around to answer some truly bizarre listener questions, and partake in some mad deadline speculation too.
