Welcome to the Effectively Wild Wiki
Effectively Wild is a sabermetrics-oriented baseball podcast co-hosted by Ben Lindbergh of The Ringer, Sam Miller of ESPN, and Meg Rowley of FanGraphs. All three are former contributors at Baseball Prospectus.
From Episode 1 to Episode 1000, the podcast was part of Baseball Prospectus. Sam co-hosted alongside Ben before leaving in late 2016 due to his commitment at his new job writing at ESPN. Jeff Sullivan of FanGraphs then co-hosted with Ben from Episode 1006 to Episode 1339, before leaving to work for the Rays in early 2019. Starting with Episode 1344, Sam returned as regular co-host for the first two episodes of each week. Meg joined as co-host for the third episode of each week, while continuing to host the FanGraphs Audio podcast.
The podcast debuted on July 28, 2012, and ran five days a week all year long before transitioning to its current three-times-a-week format in summer 2016.
