All-star Pitcher Ross Stripling and Jam Street Media Team Up on New Podcast GOATS: On The Bump


Blue Jays’ Pitcher Ross Stripling and Jam Street Media join together to bring you a new historical baseball podcast, GOATS: On The Bump. Stripling sits down with current MLB pitchers to discuss the Hall of Fame careers of some of the greatest pitchers to ever play the game.

“The inspiration for this show came from me binging Ken Burns Baseball,” said Matty Staudt, President of Jam Street Media. “I love hearing great players talk about the guys from the past that inspired them. We love working with Ross, he’s an amazing podcaster who just has an ease behind the mic you can’t teach.”

On The Bump will break down the careers of players like John Smoltz, Bob Gibson and Greg Maddux and whether or not their games would fair in the MLB today. For his first guest, Stripling sits down with his former teammate Clayton Kershaw, starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The two discuss the legendary career of Dodgers’ lefty Sandy Koufax and the striking similarities between him and Kershaw.

“To be able to get one of the current, best pitchers in baseball to help me uncover those awesome facts to our listeners has been a real treat,” said Stripling. “For instance, how Kershaw and myself talked about how big Sandy Koufax’s hands are and because of that we aren’t able to throw our curveballs the way Sandy did. You literally would never know an awesome fact like that unless you listened to our podcast episode.”

The all-star caliber list of guests does not stop there. You’ll hear conversations with Trevor Bauer, Alex Wood, Michael Wacha and even Jeff Passan about the impact pitchers of the past have on today’s game.

This is the second collaboration between Ross Stripling and Jam Street Media. “The Big Swing” with Ross and Cooper Surles can be heard weekly and is a Top 25 Baseball Podcast according to Apple Podcasts.

GOATS: On The Bump premieres Tuesday, April 13th on all podcast platforms. On The Bump is the first season of many where different athletes of today talk about the greatest to ever play their game.
