Where to Listen

Former New York Met, Ed Kranepool and author, Gary Kaschak join us to discuss their new book and Forge to Table Knives founder, Noah Rosen recounts the company’s humble beginning while Jeff gives his two cents.
Ed Kranepool was only 17 years old in 1962 when the expansion team, New York Mets were formed and he then spent the next 18 years wearing blue and orange.  Kranepool was an important member  of the 1969 Miracle Mets and when he retired after the 1979 season at the age of 34, he was the all-time Mets leader in 10 major statistical categories, including games, at-bats, hits, and total bases.  Kranepool joins us to discuss his new book, The Last Miracle:  My 18-Year Journey with the Amazin’ New York Mets which he wrote with Gary Kaschak.  Ed is a member of the New York Mets Hall of Fame and beloved by New York Mets fans worldwide.  We are thrilled he is back for his second appearance.
Gary Kaschak has written another exceptional book and we are honored he has joined us with Ed Kranepool for this in depth discussion.  Gary is the author of another book with a former New York Met, Cleon Jones’ autobiography, Coming Home:  My Amazin’ Life with the New York Mets.  Gary joined us previously to discuss  the extremely moving and motivational book, Go The Distance which he wrote with Tom Tunison.
Noah Rosen is the founder and CEO of Forge To Table, maker of custom hand-made knives.  Noah came up with the company idea while a first-year culinary student at Johnson & Wales University.  The knives are absolutely beautiful and Noah’s story is fascinating.  For more information on Noah Rosen, his company, Forge To Table, and to purchase his knives go to
