Pod: A Chat with Dave Shaw, aka @UKPhillies

Episodes in consecutive weeks? Whoa!

This week, the guys talk a little basketball and a little baseball before John has a chat with Dave Shaw, better known on Twitter as @UKPhillies. Dave visited Philadelphia in 2012 and fell in love with baseball and the Phillies, and has gone to great lengths to grow fandom of the game – and the Phillies – in Great Britain.

You can follow Dave on Twitter at @UKPhillies and check out his podcast, Broad Street to Britain, as well.

This week:

• Baseball is back, kind of!

• John Reads The News™ (2:33)

• What Are You Drinking?™ (4:32)

• Some brief Sixers talk, including the growth of Ben Simmons into one of the NBA’s truly elite defenders (4:58)

• Spring Training games are underway and one umpire is already in mid-season form (11:43)

• John’s chat with Dave Shaw of @UKPhillies; hear how he became a Phillies fan in the first place, his favorite cheesesteak stops when he’s in town, and what he thinks of this season’s squad (15:40)

• John is still giving away a Chase Utley bobblehead from his collection; leave us a review on Apple Podcasts and it could be yours!
