A Chat with Dave Shaw, aka @UKPhillies The Boo Birds Podcast

This week, the guys talk a little basketball and a little baseball before John has a chat with Dave Shaw, better known on Twitter as @UKPhillies.  Dave visited Philadelphia in 2012 and fell in love with baseball and the Phillies, and has gone to great lengths to grow fandom of the game – and the Phillies – in Great Britain. You can follow Dave on Twitter at @UKPhillies and check out his podcast, Broad Street to Britain, as well. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at @BooBirdsPodcast and visit our website, BooBirdsPodcast.com!  Plus, leave us a five-star review on Apple Podcasts and you could win a Chase Utley bobblehead from John's collection (open to U.S. residents only because John has to pay for postage). — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
