Dave Raymond was the senior class President at Stanford University and he was homeless. It was by design, somewhat, because it was practical. He was a stand-up comedian on the side. His articles for Forbes magazine are widely cited as bursting the internet bubble in the early 2000s. These days, Dave and his wife are the owner of a nanny and tutorin…

Author Brad Balukjian, a biology instructor by day, came up with an absurdly delightful idea. Buy one pack of baseball cards (he chose 1986 Topps), then track down all the players on those cards, interview them about their life after baseball, and write a book about them. The idea was born in 2014. The roadtrip was in the summer of 2015 and spanned…
 
If you were a young baseball player and were told that you would reach the Major Leagues one day -- but you would only play one game, and only one game -- would all the years of playing and sacrificing be worth it? On Episode 36 of the Life Around the Seams podcast, our guest is author Jacob Kornhauser to discuss his latest book, "A Cup of Coffee."…
 
John Shea first approached Willie Mays about collaborating on a book 15 years ago. Why did it take so long to finish? “Are you saying I missed deadline?” Shea asks, with a laugh. Actually, Shea wanted to make sure the book wasn’t missing anything, and it was definitely worth the wait. On Episode 35 of the Life Around the Seams podcast, Shea details…
 
Author's week begins with Dale Tafoya, a lifelong Oakland Athletics fan who just released his second book on his hometown team, "Billy Ball: Billy Martin and the Resurrection of the Oakland A's." In the early 1980s, the Oakland A’s went from on their way to Denver, to remaining in Oakland and becoming the toast of baseball, and then crashing back d…
 
If you divided Ted Robinson’s broadcasting career into four parts, each of those individual sections would be impressive alone. Over 20+ years of Major League Baseball, tennis grand slams and NCAA Tournament broadcasts, plus 11 different Olympics, the 49ers, Warriors and much more. Add them all together and it’s legendary. On Episode 32 of the Life…
 
Ken Korach spent 10 years in the minor leagues, before finally getting his first full-time Major League job with the Oakland Athletics in 1996.

Korach has kept the memory of King alive on the air, …

Tim Hagerty returns for a record third appearance on the “Life Around the Seams” podcast and the very loose theme for this episode is irregularities in the length of baseball due to unforeseen factors.

Mike Petriello worked for a now-defunct video on demand company that was ahead of its time, a public relations firm that built websites for pharmaceutical companies, and the website of a bowling company. Those jobs paid the bills and provided health benefits, but it was not what he really wanted to do. On episode 26 of the Life Around the Seams pod…
 
Tony Gwynn, Jr. never knew anything other than growing up in the spotlight of sharing the same name as a Hall of Fame baseball player that was beloved by San Diego.

Ron Flores spent 10 years in professional baseball, overcoming the long odds as a 29th round draft pick who still reached the major leagues.

Sean Maddison does not understand the term “offseason.” He’s the lead producer for the San Jose Sharks television broadcasts on NBC Sports Bay Area. Then after the grind of a grueling season, Maddison makes documentaries. Not simple easy documentaries, but emotional stories about the intersection of sports and society. In episode 10 of the “Life Ar…
 
David Feldman is not somebody that sports fans see. He’s not somebody who sports fans hear very often. But his fingerprints are all over a lot of the live sporting events that are viewed my thousands, if not millions. In episode 9 of the “Life Around the Seams” podcast, our guest is David Feldman. Not the David Feldman who is an on-air host for NBC…
 
Mike Capps enjoyed the type of career than most journalists could only dream they could attain, winning awards, and covering some of the biggest stories in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. But he gave it all up to become a minor league baseball play-by-play announcer. In episode 8 of the “Life Around the Seams” podcast, we learn how walking out of his t…
 
When you think of somebody who has spent their entire career playing for one organization, you usually think of Tony Gwynn with the Padres, or Cal Ripken, Jr. with the Orioles, or Chipper Jones with the Braves. The name Tim Dillard probably doesn’t come to mind. Yet in many ways, it’s even more remarkable that Dillard has only played for the Milwau…
 
Pat Venditte is the most unique pitcher in professional baseball. He's ambidexterous. He's not a switch hitter. He's a switcher pitcher.

In episode 6 of the “Life Around the Seams” podcast, we learn the story of how Pat's father had this idea of making him a switch-pitcher, wh…

Brian Holman thought he knew heartache on the pitchers mound.

On Episode 2 of the "Life Around the Seams" podcast, we t…
 
Cody Decker is probably best known for making a video about how the El Paso Chihuahuas players and coaches made Jeff Francoeur think one of their teammates is deaf.
