On this episode of Leveling The Playing Field, Bobbi-Sue interviews award-winning novelist, journalist, and essayist, Stacey May Fowles. Fowles is the author of the Baseball Life Advice e-newsletter. She released a book by the same name this past year which is an essay collection that looks at topics ranging from bat flips to bandwagoners, from the romance of spring training to the politics of booing. Stacey May is not afraid to broach the subjects of mental health, sexism, and other cultural issues related to baseball in her writing. This is a wide-ranging interview that touches on all these topics plus women in sports journalism, cute animals, and pregnancy aversions.
