I don't want to oversell this one, but legendary announcer Vin Scully joined me on the newest edition of The Hot Clicks Podcast, and it was glorious. The Hall of Fame brodcaster reminisced about his 63 years with the Dodgers and his time calling the NFL, while sharing his philosphy on why he likes a one-man booth and why he doesn't have any favorite announcers.

Since this edition is anchored by a podcast with Vin Scully, I thought Hot Clicks should feature one of the Dodgers' biggest fans, and a person who is near and dear to any male who grew up in the '80s, Alyssa Milano.
