Spring is in the air, and that sound you hear is the crack of the bat in ballparks all across the country. So what better time to devote an entire episode of the Cult Spark Podcast to discussing the best and worst of baseball cinema? Special guest Kurt Larson (writer/director, Son of Ghostman, and host of the Stay Cool Geek podcast) drops by to help Bob and Stew list off the best baseball films ever made, debate whether Field of Dreams counts as a baseball movie at all and ponder why the game of baseball works so well as a dramatic storytelling device. Bob and Kurt also try to figure out how Stew can hate The Goonies yet love The Sandlot. Batter up!
