South Side Sox Podcast 23 — White Sox Disinterest in Growing Its Fan Base

The Sharing Sox tag-team of Leigh and Will Allan joins the mothership podcast in this first-time crossover event, to talk SSS as entertainment — and how the White Sox see their fans

South Side Sox Podcast 23 is our first-time crossover event, as the boys from Sharing Sox wander over to the mothership podcast to chat on some coverage esoterica.

  • The role that entertainment plays in sportswriting
  • How the White Sox see their fans, and the media that covers the team
  • The insular nature of how the White Sox approach anyone outside of 35th & Shields
  • Jerry Reinsdorf’s disinterest in the fan base
  • How the conservative nature (personal conservatism, not political) of the White Sox office limits the team’s popularity
  • Is negative attention better than no attention at all (it could be argued, yes)
  • We’ve had house pet delays and even recording dropouts, but look for the first “sunset delay” in this podcast
