Show Notes:

The first guest is writer and curator virtuoso Alex Belth from the Bronx, New York. Alex blogs about New York sports and culture, has penned a couple of baseball books and is a master of digging up ‘lost stories’ and converting them for the web. He also worked for the Coen brothers during the making of The Big Lebowski and wrote a smart, funny short story about his experience.
