Who would be the perfect guest for our 50th show? How about creator of The Heckler?
The Heckler is a satirical sports newspaper created in 2003 by Brad Zibung (born 1976) and George Ellis (born 1977). It is based in Chicago and chronicles the pratfalls of the fabled Chicago Cubs baseball club as well as other major Chicago sports teams and athletes.
The Heckler has received acclaim from the Chicago Reader, The Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Tonight on WTTW, WFLD's Fox News in the AM, WGN-TV, ESPN Radio Chicago, WSCR, Time Out Chicago and the Sporting News. It has subscribers in 40 states.
In 2006 The Heckler branched beyond the Chicago Cubs and began covering all major Chicago sports.
In March 2007, The Heckler published its first book, The Cubs Fan's Guide to Happiness
Club 400 Podcast took the party to the people as we hosted our first live show as Club 400 Ballpark Lager was launched at Randall Roadhouse. In addition to prizes and giveaways, we had a very special guest, author Rick Kaempfer - author of Every Cub Ever - A Cubrehensive guide to everyone who wore the uniform from 1871-2018. The book is the ultimate reference guide to the Cubs. Rick worked on this book for 10 years, and every Cubs fan should own a copy.
He hit a homerun is his first at bat in the major leagues for the Cubs. Five months later he was a World Champion. A couple years later and he is a 2x All-Star. He is the best catcher in baseball and now he has been on The Club 400 Podcast. We have had a chance to talk to some of the great players of the 2016 World Champion team, and Willson has been one of the best.
