Barbecue Renaissance Man, Carey Bringle AKA The Peg Leg Porker and Prolific Best-Selling Author, Peter Golenbock, Writer of Some of Sports Biggest Works

Carey Bringle developed a love of barbecue when he was young and he still remembers family gatherings at iconic barbecue places.  At age 17, he lost a leg to cancer, but recovered from the disease, and after success for years on the competition BBQ circuit, celebrated his second chance at life by naming his restaurant Peg Leg Porker when it opened in Nashville in 2013. His Peg Leg Porker sauces and rubs, a new line of professional-grade home smokers, and Peg Leg Porker Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskies have expanded the BBQ into a full-fledged brand.  Carey is even an author as he is the writer of the book, BBQ For Dummies.

Peter Golenbock is a prolific author, known for his many books about baseball and other sports with many becoming bestsellers. The Bronx Zoo, which Golenbock coauthored with Yankees pitcher Sparky Lyle was a New York Times bestseller and, in 2003, was chosen as one of Sports Illustrated's Top 100 Sports Books Of All Time.  In addition to Lyle, Golenbock has written books with Graig Nettles, Billy Martin, Bobby Valentine, and many others.  He joins us to discuss his newest book, Baseball Heaven:  Up Close and Personal, What It Was Really Like In The Major Leagues.  The book is a compilation of many of Golenbock's interviews which for the last 50 years have featured some of the most fascinating figures in baseball.

We conclude the show with the song, Baseball Always Brings You Home from the musician, Dave Dresser and the poet, Shel Krakofsky.
