One of the early managing editors of Bless You Boys, the talented Ian Casselberry, joins host Brandon Day and the host of the Don’t Call it a Rebuild, it’s a Team Build podcast, Mark Gorosh, for a wide-ranging conversation.

You can find Ian these days writing for Awful Announcing, while links to his myriad podcasts can be found at his Twitter handle, @iancass.

We’ll talk about the early history of the Bless You Boys blog, and the Wild West days of the Detroit Tigers’ nascent blogosphere in the mid-00’s. Social media has radically changed the landscape over the years, while data analytics has radically changed how the game is covered. We’ll discuss the history of the Tigers and Tigers’ coverage in the multimedia era, and contemplate sports in the year of COVID-19.
