Reviews for “The K.P. Wee Podcast”

It appears that iTunes reviews for podcasts can only be viewed in the countries where the reviews are posted, so — as I’m in Canada — I can’t see any that are posted by listeners from the U.S. for “The K.P. Wee Podcast.”

Fortunately, a friend living in the States sent me a screenshot of some reviews he saw on iTunes for my podcast:

The K.P. Wee Podcast: Episode 3

In an interview recorded earlier in the summer of 2020, former MLB catcher Don Slaught discusses, among other things, RightView Pro (now V1 Sports), a company he started which offers video analysis systems for baseball and softball, licensed by MLB, the MLB Players’ Association, and the National Pro Fastpitch. He also mentions OnBase University, a company he operates with the goal of educating coaches in baseball and softball in order to help their players reach their potential.

The conversation with Slaught, the former MLB catcher who enjoyed a 16-year big-league career, is part of a longer chat which will be featured in a chapter of a new book that I’m writing.
