Ben Hochman talks Rockies, Cardinals

(via Grantland)

Ben Hochman went on Jonah Keri’s podcast and discussed the differences between the Colorado Rockies and St. Louis Cardinals (there might be perhaps one or two of them), as well as the future of journalism. Talk about disparate topics!

Hochman, of course, left Denver this month for St. Louis, so he has an interesting perspective on each city and baseball team.

Oh, and he’s also a sharp dude who actually understands the Internet, unlike the vast majority of newpaper men and women, so it makes for a compelling interview even if it weren’t partly about the Colorado Rockies.

Side note, too… does everyone have a podcast now? But, like, no seriously… everybody has one, right? So it’s only a matter of time until that goes out of style, and then the next thing will be… ??
