Loved the Live show

I just finished listening to the live episode and i have to say its one of my favorite episodes. I started listening at the beginning of this season and i’ve really liked all the eps but i liked the different perspectives and the banter. Would love to hear more like that if possible. I know scheduling can be hard. Just wanted to say that i was so hype to find this podcast with a non-male person talking a out baseball. As a women whos loved baseball for many years it can often be a little hard to find other women or non binary people who are also interested so that makes me really happy as well!

This podcast is everything

Honestly I didn't know how good podcasts could be until a friend recommended Three Swings. Rhea Butcher is wonderful partly because they are so informed, thoughtful and open-hearted, but also because I had never heard anyone who I identified with talk about baseball, ever. Thanks to Forever Dog and the sponsors for their part in making Three Swings possible. Three Swings is the best.

Zen and the Art of Loving Baseball

Never thought I’d listen to a baseball podcast because I don’t know diddly-squat about sports. But for me, Three Swings is about life. Rhea brings awareness to detrimental cultural biases that exist both on the field and off, while maintaining their love of the game. Addressing these tough and divisive topics with lovingkindness is the All-American sport I’ve been waiting for.

I liked it, so I Liked It.

As someone who was never really into sports (still not, truth be told) I've always found it interesting to hear people's actual opinions about sports when they're legitimately excited about or fans of the sport more than just a team. Add to that that it's Rhea Butcher & they get guests sometimes like Paul F Tompkins, Greg Proops, & people within the sports world of baseball (men's & women's baseball), every episode is an interesting meditation on life & its many facets. And Rhea's consternation with Fantasy Baseball stress is an enjoyable part of the process.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks

Rhea Butcher knows baseball, plays baseball, loves baseball, and adds an important perspective to sports talk. Hey ESPN, MLB Network-this is the voice you’re missing.

You understand

As someone who loves both sports and comedy, it is very rare to find such a sublime intersection of the two as this. Plus, this show gives a voice to folks you would never hear from on a typical sports podcast—folks like, you know, people other than straight males. Rhea might overuse the word 'bonkers', but otherwise she's a treat.

An antidote

Listening to Rhea's take on baseball is like healing from all the terrible sports coverage that dominates. Couple that with their ability to seamlessly incorporate and address social and political issues, and you've got a podcast that you should never miss.

Really love how Rhea seamlessly weaves thoughts on actual baseball teams and games into thoughts on life and how to be a human being in 21st century America.
