Viva El Birdos editor Heather Simon joined site manager Ben Humphrey. The two recorded Episode 41 of the Viva El Birdos podcast on the evening of August 23, 2015, after the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the San Diego Padres to avoid being swept at Petco Park. Heather and Ben discussed:
- The Cardinals' recent poor play
- Whether it is time to panic
- Whether roster construction had led to Jhonny Peralta and Kolten Wong being forced to play too often and if that has worn them down during the dog days of summer
- The Cardinals' remaining schedule
- Matt Adams, Randal Grichuk, and Matt Holliday's respective timetable to return from the DL
- Whether it's fair to expect Adams, Grichuk, or Holliday to hit as well as they did before suffering an injury when they return from the DL
