    "Eminem's influence in rap and hip hop, and music in general, can't be underestimated. His journey as an artist, which he shows unflinchingly to his fans, is inspiring. Our 'Town Hall,' as he releases The Marshall Mathers LP 2, will be equally candid, real, and utterly fascinating for the lucky fans and subscribers who get to share the room with him," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.

Following that, a snippet of the first single, "Berzerk" and accompanying video aired during the MTV Video Music Awards later that month. The song premiered on Eminem's SiriusXM channel Shade 45 and was released on August 27th and has sold over a million copies to date. The video for "Berzerk" has been viewed over 40 million times. Last week, the latest song from The Marshall Mathers LP 2, "Rap God," made its debut. It has been called "Six minutes of concentrated speed-rap fury, one of his sickest flows ever..." (Rolling Stone). The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is executive produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin and features guest appearances from Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Nate Ruess from fun., and Skylar Grey, among others.

    I may just do that. I've only used it once :)

    Much better that way- they edit out all commercials so it's only about 45 minutes and you can pause and pick up where you left off later. Also you can download it (while connected) and play it back without WiFi

    Yeah, I couldn't find in on the app :(

    The only Town Hall Series episode I can find is one on Eminem :right: (edit: on Shade 45)

    That's why I don't use the SMX app very much, if at all. I wanted to listen to the Hendrick THS, but before I had a chance to listen to the whole thing, it was gone.

    I don't even listen to MLB on the app because it times out. If I want to listen to mlb on my phone, I listen via the at-bat app :)

    SiriusXM to Air Live Town Hall Event with Four-Time World Series Champion Joe Torre

    > Torre will sit down with SiriusXM's Chris 'Mad Dog' Russo on November 18 for a special Q&A in front of a live audience at the SiriusXM Studios in New York City

    > SiriusXM subscribers can ask Torre a question as part of the broadcast

    Joe Torre, Major League Baseball's EVP of Baseball Operations, a nine-time All-Star and four-time World Series Champion manager, will sit down for an exclusive Q&A session with an audience of SiriusXM listeners at the SiriusXM Studios in New York City on Monday, November 18, as part of SiriusXM's exclusive "Town Hall" series.

    "SiriusXM's Town Hall with Joe Torre" will air live at 2:00 pm ET on Mad Dog Sports Radio, SiriusXM channel 86, and will be moderated by the channel's headline host, Chris Russo.

    Torre will answer questions from SiriusXM subscribers in the audience and talk about his experiences throughout his three decade career as a player and manager, his current role as MLB's EVP of Baseball Operations, and his work with the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation.

    "Throughout my career in baseball, I've always appreciated the interaction with the fans. Their dedication to the game and their teams is remarkable," said Torre. "So I am looking forward to what will be a unique conversation with SiriusXM's listeners and Chris Russo on November 18, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to talk about my time in the game and the important work we are doing off the field with the Safe At Home Foundation."

    "Few people know more about the game of baseball than Joe Torre. Every conversation I've had with him — and I've had many over the years — has been interesting and often enlightening," said Russo. "More importantly, both on the field and away from the ballpark, Joe is one of the finest people I've ever known. He's had a fascinating career and life and this will be an entertaining discussion, both for the fans in studio with him and those listening around the country."

    Joe Torre was named MLB's Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations in 2011. He oversees areas that include Major League Operations, On-Field Operations, On-Field Discipline and Umpiring and serves as the Office of the Commissioner's primary liaison to the GMs and field managers of the 30 Major League clubs regarding all baseball and on-field matters.

    He is the Chairman of the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation (Home - Joe Torre Safe At Home®), which he and his wife, Ali, launched in 2002 with the mission to educate to end the cycle of domestic violence and save lives. Since its inception, the Foundation has educated thousands of students, parents, teachers and school faculty with a message of anti-violence and respect, and has created "safe rooms," named Margaret's Place in tribute to Joe's mother, in schools in New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles where students can speak to a counselor about the traumas occurring in their lives.

    Torre ranks fifth all-time in managerial wins with 2,326. In 2010, he concluded his third and final season as manager of the LA Dodgers, whom he led to the National League Championship Series in 2008 and 2009. Previously, he spent 12 seasons as manager of the New York Yankees (1996-2007), guiding them to the postseason every year, including six World Series appearances and four World Championships (1996, 1998-2000). Torre managed the New York Mets from 1977-81, the Atlanta Braves from 1982-84 and the St. Louis Cardinals from 1990-95. During his 17-year playing career, Torre compiled a lifetime .297 batting average, had 2,342 hits and 252 HRs. He was a nine-time All-Star and the NL's Most Valuable Player in 1971. He is eligible for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014.

    SiriusXM subscribers have the chance to attend and ask a question as part of "SiriusXM's Town Hall with Joe Torre." Visit Town Hall Radio - SiriusXM Radio for Official Rules and details.

    The event is part of SiriusXM's "Town Hall" series, which features intimate gatherings with an iconic personality sitting down with a studio audience of SiriusXM listeners. Previous SiriusXM "Town Hall' specials have featured Katy Perry, Robin Williams, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Roger Goodell, Ringo Starr, Mike Krzyzewski and others.
