South Side Sox Pregame Podcast 4 — Hello again, baseball!

Hannah LaMotta and Kristina Airdo join Brett Ballantini to welcome back the White Sox, and discuss the first action of spring training.

On the heels of a terrific welcome back from Hannah LaMotta and the exhaustive (if soul-sapping) labor writing from Kristina Airdo, both writers hop on the pregame podcast with Brett Ballantini to discuss finally making it to ... BASEBALL!

  • One of us is briefly made an honorary Italian, so for the first half, meet Kristina Airdietta
  • Baseball is back ... how exciting is that?
  • What gives us the biggest goose bumps for the first time in a new season?
  • Pregame rituals at the ballpark
  • First impressions of writing for South Side Sox, maybe including writing in planes, boats and rollercoasters
  • On the occasion of two opening Cactus League games against the Cubs, we review some favorite Crosstown and spring training moments
  • The most crucial thing(s) we need to see from this 2022 White Sox team, as soon as possible
  • With the 2022 revised schedule out, we take time to give a partial lineup of writers for the 2022 SSS season, and preview the expanded coverage we’ll offer all season long
  • And, finally: Will you enjoy the 2022 White Sox because of, or in spite of, manager Tony La Russa?
  • Thanks to Scott Reichard, as always, for our intro/outro music
