My buddy Brad Malone recently launched “Classic Sports Almanac,” a new podcast that highlights sports history and sports tales from the past in a fun, lively style.

On May 12, the debut episode was posted online. The classic baseball movie “The Natural” was a great topic for the first episode.

“On the inaugural episode of Classic Sports Almanac cinematographer Sean P. Malone stops by to talk to Brad about one of their favorite movies of all time, The Natural,” reads the episode summary. “Robert Redford stars in this baseball classic about a ballplayer who has one last chance to live his dream of playing in the big leagues.”

Brad and Sean are brothers. Their rapport on the air is also natural and smooth.

Other guests appeared on the next four podcasts episodes over the past few weeks, giving Brad a chance to exhibit his enthusiasm for sports. Check ’em out.
