MLB: World Series-Los Angeles Dodgers at Boston Red Sox David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

As the World Series kicks off between the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Travis and Paul Banks dive into the famous 1918 World Series match up between the Chicago Cubs and the Boston Red Sox. With this being the 100th anniversary of the match-up, they dive into the extraordinary circumstances facing this game as the Great War raged in Europe and the US was hit by an extraordinary flu epidemic that was mainly covered up. We hope you listen in and enjoy.
