Josh Chetwynd has done a lot of things with his young life: ballplayer, baseball announcer, lawyer, book author, and journalist. That second-to-last category is much of the focus of this interview, as we speak predominantly about his “balls book” (also known as The Secret History Of Balls ), which details everything you could possibly imagine about the baseball, basketball, football (and Aussie Rules football), golf ball, beach ball and other objects we grew up loving. Plus: at the very end of the interview, Chetwynd (who has written for Variety, among other publications) talks about why TV on a channel like AMC is much better than network television. All in all, a fascinating discussion whether you’re into sports, publishing, or — OK, we’ll say it — life in general.
You wanna see Josh doing the whole “baseball road trip” thing? We’ve got you covered.
