This is the first in a regular set of shows on NATS and Son that feature discussions and analysis of Criterion Collection films. There are over 950 Criterion movies streaming on Hulu Plus and we are going to spend the rest of our lives watching them all. We have two movies to talk about this time: from 1953 the Japanese cinema classic Ugetsu and from 1984 the American documentary The Times of Harvey Milk.
We told you he was gonna make for lousy team chemistry! On this edition of NATS and Son we take apart the Papelbon choke incident and leave no one untouched. We hear from previous incidents throughout history where Matt Williams was an unreliable witness to events. And Mike Rizzo? We haven’t forgotten him and the others at the clueless helm of the Boras Corporation (aka Nationals). All on a rollicking episode of NATS and Son and Son!
We bid a hearty welcome back to the show to Sean podcasting live from Berlin! Before he heads down to Bavaria for Oktoberfest we break down some preliminary thoughts about future deals, the good, the bad, and this year’s end of season award predictions. All on a very special international edition of NATS and Son!
As summer begins to wind down into fall, so we say bye-byes to the Nats’ playoff hopes. Dropping three games in a row to the Mets, and in the way they blew it, turns a grown man’s fancy to thoughts of next year. A little bit of post-mortem and some generalized thinking about next year’s team and off-season maneuvering. Call the hot stove repairman, we are getting ready to fire it up prematurely on NATS and Son (sans Son on another Continent).
NATS and Son is flying solo while the son is off on a European adventure. To fill in the time during this false hope pennant race, we find out what makes Casey Janssen’s motor run, explore the Strasburg and Matt Harvey connection, and close with a suggested itinerary for our student studying abroad in Germany from none other than Herr Zimmerman!
NATS and Son celebrates the Nats getting back on a winning track by keeping spirits up despite falling behind in the pennant race. We are joined by our special guest Herr Zimmerman who dissects some of the traits of teammates and we close with a tribute to our Nat of the Past, the Alabama Hammer Josh Willingham. All on…NATS and Son!
On the 3rd episode of NATS and Son, broadcasting from Central Pennsylvania as NATS and Grandson, we cover the so far woeful series against the Mets, welcome Cespedes to the NL, chide our special boy Harper, and give a shout out to our Nat of the Past — Daniel Cabrera. All on NATS and Son.
On this second edition of NATS and Son we eat some crow about trade predictions, give our initial takes on the Papelbon trade and Storen impact, talk about Three Amigos and their missing bats, and give a shout out to our Nat of the Past Cristian GUUUUZman.
Join us for the first episode of NATS and Son, a conversation about all things Nationals. Includes trade deadline talk, recollections about great Nats of the Past, remembering the 2008 season, and a special guest interview with Strasbaby!
