SSS Podcast 8: Brad Balukjian and The Wax Pack

Tune in for a really fun talk about road trips, Carlton Fisk, life lessons and baseball cards!

Is this the face of a man who has 246,994 miles on his 2002 Honda Accord? Yes, yes it is.

Brad Balukjian decided what the hell, I’m gonna open a pack of baseball cards from the first year I collected (1986), then track those players down to catch up with their lives, more than three decades later. He succeeded with almost all of the players in his pack — with a notable White Sox exception — and learned a lot about his cardboard heroes, and himself, along the way.

This was a lot of fun, and thanks for Brad for the time.
