Emmy-winning broadcaster and Baseball Hall of Famer Bob Costas returns to the podcast for an animated conversation about his five-decade career in television, his passion for TV westerns, his weakness for cheesy sports biopics and his memorable interviews with Rod Steiger, Jerry Lewis, Mickey Mantle, Don Rickles and Rodney Dangerfield. Also, Uncle Miltie drops the mic, Ralph Kramden does the mambo, Lon Chaney Jr. meets "The Rifleman" and Bob gets his very own Topps baseball card. PLUS: "The Million Dollar Movie"! Appreciating Joe Franklin! Babe Ruth to the rescue! William Conrad learns karate! And Bob remembers the late, great Tom Seaver.
