BYB Podcast 94: The hot stove won’t keep you warm like Anya Taylor-Joy movies will

The Bless You Boys staff talks baseball from a Tigers perspective

We are back with another overdue episode of the Bless You Boys podcast. Brandon Day and Ashley MacLennan return with an overview of the quiet offseason to date, and what may lie ahead. First we’ll catch up on some of the signings and news from around the league. Then, we’ll discuss A.J. Hinch, Chris Fetter, and the new coaching staff, the signings so far, and what the Tigers may do in the month remaining until pitchers and catchers are supposed to report to Lakeland.

And, since we’re regularly asked to do a segment after the baseball portion of the podcast on what we’re reading, watching, or listening to, particularly in this year of the quarantine, there’s a whole bonus segment past the 52:00 mark in which we’ll dive into some of the best movies and shows we’ve seen over the past year.

This exercise is almost entirely an excuse to obsess over our mutual favorite obsession of 2020-2021, the actress Anya Taylor-Joy. With the Queen’s Gambit breakout star as the centerpiece, we’ll talk about her career, some of her co-stars, and follow that chain into some of non-Anya Taylor-Joy work we’ve been most impressed by over the past year. Tom Hardy, Johnny Flynn, and Aubrey Plaza will all be name-checked along the way. Next time out, we’ll include a segment on what we’ve been reading. Once again, this is totally self-indulgent on our part, and if you’re here for baseball alone, the 52:00 mark is going to be your stopping point.

As always, thanks for reading and commenting at One more month and we’ll all be in the best shape of our lives once again. It can’t come soon enough.
