They say that punctuality is a virtue if you don't mind being lonely. Another famous quote is that brevity is the soul of wit. What William Shakespeare was likely referring to is the concise and precise use of words, and not being short on time necessarily. Only on Twitter do I find brevity to have an impact on my life and I've never been described as having brevity when it comes to talking, writing, or thinking.
On this episode of Royals Review Radio we practice some brevity, but likely not enough brevity for William Shakespeare to be satisfied.
This particular podcast features two segments. The first segment your humble co-host is joined by Max Rieper, Gus Booth, and Matt Jackson; all writers on this very site.

Poor team decisions based on things Madison Bumgarner did

On the second segment we feature a rare guest, one Scott Cooke of Bluebird Banter. For the uninitiated, Bluebird Banter is the sister site to Royals Review but of course rather than focusing on the ALDS winning Royals, they instead focus on the ALDS winning Blue Jays. Why? That's a question for Scott and his colleagues that we unfortunately didn't cover.
The Blue Jays (of course)
