Hannah Keyser of Yahoo Sports covers baseball, but that just scratches the surface of her skill set. At Yahoo and throughout her career at Deadspin, Vice, and elsewhere, she’s covered politics, culture, food, and so much else. We’re talking today about her path into journalism, her role at Yahoo, and of course the MLB labor dispute that’s occupied her attention for the last two months. We get to the bottom of Manfred, the owners, and the players as baseball staggers on toward an uncertain 2020 season. Don’t miss it! And don’t miss the links below to some of Hannah’s work that we discussed on the show.
Hannah’s post on the potential end of the American empire can be read here, on mental health during the pandemic here, on who has the leverage in the MLB labor dispute here, on the cynical tactics of the owners here, on the precarious situation of MLB team employees here, and on the choice to change or not change her last name when she got married here.
