The Los Angeles Times has launched a podcast taking listeners closer to the action of L.A.’s home teams. Hosted by Beto Durán and featuring The Times’ award-winning reporters and columnists, the podcast combines in-depth interviews, the best moments from the games and a look inside the front offices.

In this episode, The Times’ Andy McCullough, Bill Shaikin and Jorge Castillo sit down with Durán, recapping the World Series, the modern state of baseball and what the fans can expect with the 2019 Dodgers.
